I have the exact same problem. The monitor blinks on, barely, every few seconds, otherwise it is blank. I've put it on three different PCs and switched cables. It has the same problem on each. It ran on one of these PCs for a couple of years. I recently put it on a new Dell, it ran for a few months, then started this.

Guess to narrow it down, can he put the monitor on another computer to see if it still works? Also putting different monitor on the current computer might give you a few more ideas. At least then you will know have a better idea of where the problem lies. Hard to diagnose this stuff unless you are the one sitting in front of it.
Hope this starts you in some direction.

Toshiba Satellite L455-S5000 monitor blackout but works w an external monitor


This is a tricky situation, any fluid that ends up inside can cause a cascade effect, hours, days, weeks and even months before the full efects are known. You could end up changing the screen and down the road face major failure in the motherboard. Under the circumstances I would consider a laptop replacement.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Monitor will not stay on. I can turn the monitor off and then back on and my desktop pops up for 3 or 4 seconds before the screen goes black again. Also, on occasion the monitor will continuesly flsh on...


I'm afraid that most probably your monitor is failing. Try to connect it to a different PC and see if it's still blanking.
I've had few cases of dell monitors dying in similar manner to yours. In all cases it was caused by blown capacitors on the logic board in the monitor. (overheating/poor quality components). Once replaced, the monitors were back to life and are still in service today.
Of course unless you like to tinker with electronics this is probably not worth repairing as the monitors are fairly cheap these days.
Hope this helps,

Monitor displays the PC screen but switches off within 10 second


Unfortunatley your monitor is going out. I just had that problem. My sceen would come on, but after about 10min. it would blink off and turn black. I would have to hit the off button on the monitor, then turn it back on. It would work fine for a few minutes then black out again. I got a new/used monitor where I no longer have that problem.

I did check to make sure my hybernate was not activated, it wasn't, I had it set to never turn off.

Good luck.

Change the screen resolution. The video card or video display may not be compatible to the supported video setting of the monitor. Try changing the video resolution to a lower setting such as 1024x768 and bit depth to 32 bit.

Monitor : no display and blue led light is blinking


The power supply is the first thing that the 110v electric line goes into. The invertor is the next item past the power supply, or sometimes contained within it. I do not thing monitors are a DIY repair.      First substitute a different monitor to confirm that it is, in deed , the monitor and not the video card.
