Re: monitor gone black
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

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.
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.
you may want to try what I did on monday when my view sonic started doing the same thing
And this is what worked for me.
1. I unplugged the monitor over night and plugged back in, in the morning and tryed to power the monitor and computer on but that didn't seem to do any thing, the monitor did not respond just continued to blink.
2. Then added a clip on magnet from my printer cable to the power supply cord to the monitor I then plugged back in the monitor and this time when I pushed the power button the button worked and the
small square yellow box on the monitor came on and then I turned on the CPU unit . Now I am
happy to report to you that I am now able to use the monitor again.
I hope this has helped.
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 Housecall101@aol.com
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!
