Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, My monitor went black last. If I turn it off and on again it lights up so you can see whats on the screen but then goes black. I've tried it through the USB connection and the same thing happens. I've tried just turning it on without it connected to the computer at all and the same thing happens. Any help would be very much appreciated.
Most monitors come with a 3 year warranty....if you are within this warranty SEND IT BACK. This problem is usually down to a faulty transceiver. Easy to replace but be sure to disconnect electricity as you can get a fatal shock
hope this helps

Exactly the same problem here. Phillips 170B Monitor about two years old. Lights up for no more than 2 seconds then goes blank. Switch on/off and exactly the same thing. I suspect than the screen goes really dim rather than switching off because sometimes I can see the screen image very faintly.

This is most likely a power inverter problem & they are not cheap to exchange/repair. Buying a new monitor is probobly your best bet.
