    I have experienced the same problem but when I checked the power cable it turned out to be loose connection, so unplugged the cable and plugged it again tightly. Problem solved when I turned on the monitor and PC again.

Hi there, You do have a Hardware Problem, a Electronic Parts. If the scree is fine for about a minite and then goes black again then you may have a cold solder on the board of the monitor or a defective parts on Horrizontal Section for your screen. You may need to repalce some electronic parts. TY

Getting a black screen and no device found. what

First unplug everything from your AC/outlets.Then systematically check every plug going to and from your screen by pulling them out one by one and reattaching them. POWER cord / VGA cord .The VGA cord looks like a D and has 15 pins it goes in easy no force is necessary, thumb tight the screws on each side.Now power cord make sure it's tight, in the socket.Then plug your AC plugs back into the wall. If that doesn't solve your problem either your screen has gone bad or your video card. Good luck!

Computer screen is black

Two things come to mind...

If the monitor is fitted with moister sensors it will as a safety measure not turn on, this can be due to damp in the room etc.

Second and more probable is the fuse has blown on the circuit board to the monitor. you will unplug power lead open back up and look for a smaller than plug size fuse which is chrome ended and clear glassed. About 3/4 inch long and 1/8th dia.

Ensure these are replaced with a similar graded fuse. Maplins is a safe bet to obtain them. best to take old one in with you.

Colored vertical lines on monitor

Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

Blank monitor

Try unplugging the power cord to your computer tower, click the power button to drain the capacitors in the mother board then plug the power cord back in and try to boot up. Has helped me repair several similar black screen problems. Chuck

Power button is green - no blinks / no picture / no sound

Unplug it from the wall, wait 2 minutes and plug it back in. if problem still exists, its probably the main pcb.

DCLCD 19" flatscreen won't turn on correctly

Same problem here, but after using the plugging/unplugging method it eventually stopped all together. So, I took it to a local monitor repair shop (AM Stereo, Seattle). The problem is a power supply issue where the capasitors go bad. They fixed the monitor by replacing the capacitors for $70. In there experience, all monitors, regardless of brand, tend to use the same cheap capacitors which fail. He replaced them with better quality capacitors which may make this monitor better than it ever was. I'm back in business with a great monitor!
