Turns off and on by itself

Its as if it has a life of its own.
Symptoms are:
1) The monitor seems to want to turn itself off after 1 second of being turned back on.
2) i turn it on, it turns itself off
3) Sometimes when i just let it do its thing, it turns itself back on, for more than 1 second (ranging from 2 seconds to 10 minutes).
4) user (i) have no control of the monitor
5) After it turns itself off, i can press the menu or the auto button on the monitor, and it'll turn on, but it turns itself back off at will.

i've checked my pc for viruses and any other baddies. No issues.
i've checked all the connections - no issues
Help!! i got the monitor about a year or so ago.

When the monitor does work, are you able to see image very well? If so, then check the monitors conection to the PC. Look into the plug itself, are any of the pins bent?
If a computer monitor does not see a connection, or is not getting video feed, it will shut itself off to save power.
Could also be as simple as a bad cord on the monitor as well.

If not, then it could be the computer resolution set too high. To fix that, reboot in safe mode (hit F8 during boot) and change screen rez while in that mode.

Ok so its connected to your pc?
check settings on the monitor itself [if you'restill able to do that]
disconnect all your usb devices restart your computer and try again.

Is it in a cold room ? that might be the problem.

Is it in the same powerbar as your computer ?
I'm not sure but if your power outlet where you connect it is simply looped to the rest that are in use [lazy electrician] then it might turn off because a power shortage.

Good luck

Tv power cuts on power light lit no picture then Tv turns it self off, when picture appears there's waves in picture and tv turns itself back off and on with no picture just black scree


Hi Patty
If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
If your TV, flatscreen, or monitor is more than 5 years old it is more like to have suffered a component failure.
Take it to a repair shop.

Tmy monitor shows the images only for 20 seconds, then it turns black.


Hi hope your monitor issue has resolved. I would suspect the problem is a hardware issue then a software setting. Since the monitor is over three and half years old, if your monitor is a LCD with CCFL back light and had been used almost every day, there may be 3 possible hardware issues. First is the internal power supply, that can go wrong due to heating problem within the monitor, this problem usually cause the monitor to display poor quality picture and may show interference lines on screen prior failure. Secondly, it may be the inverter that drives the back light, which may fail due to the safety circuit kicks in, because it involves with high voltages. Thirdly it may be the backlight itself, which is like most compact CCFL energy saving lamps that flickers or turn itself off when it reaches the end of its service life. This problem usually caused the monitor to show redness or yellowness images prior failure.

All of these can be resolved by qualified electronic repairers, all the best.

My Samsung SyncMaster 740N occasionally turns itself off. Timing varies and the condition varies. Usually the screen just goes black - from seconds to hours after it is turned on - the blue LED remains...


This could be because of the 'eco' friendliness of the monitor. Basically a lot of monitors are designed to turn off into a low power state when not in use so to preserve power and life of the monitor. I would return the monitor as the sensors that control this seem to be broken in your monitor.

Monitor goes black for a few seconds


Try swapping the monitor cable from the working monitor to the other video connection on your computer. Effectively reversing the connections to isolate whether your problem is the video card in your computer or the monitor itself. If you find the working monitor displaying similar symptoms, then check your video drivers and ensure that you have all power saving features, screen savers, etc... turned off.
