Re: Blank

Unplug the monitor from the computer,
it should display the diagnostic screen on monitor in color.
if not reconnect it and boot computer or attach to a running computer with some stuff on the screen,
get a bright light and shine on the screen at an angle do you see the stuff/desktop.if you do the lamp or power supply is bad.
if the monitor is lit and the lamps work but no diagnostics then the video cpu on the monitor is bad.
post your findings here

Acer 22W monitor goes blank after a couple of seconds. Please help.

tjpartners, Have you determined if your display is BLANK, or just BLACK!!! Yes, it can be both! But sometimes if you shine a brite flashlight about 1" from the screen you will be able to see if the screen is only BLACK, but not BLANK because you can still see a very faint image of the Win-Desktop if you look closely. If you see the image then that means the "switch-mode-power-supply" is only in partial shutdown mode and trying to save itself from a catastrophic, nonrecoverable failure! Do the flashlight trick and do a repost to your original message if possible. 12fixlouie

Press power on... screen flashes on (blink), then goes blank and power button flashes

dpelrod727, Yes, the "switch-mode-power-supply" is in "partial" or "full" SHUTDOWN mode. Reconnect E172FP to a fully booted KNOWN good PC with the win-desktop as the displayed screen. Check with flashlight to see if your LCD panel is both BLACK and BLANK, or just BLACK by holding a bright flashlight 1" from screen at different angles even though the screen appears to be blank. If very faint image of desktop is seen then your SMPS is still half alive. Here are your options in either case. 1. Trade in for new. 2. Try Dell for a cash+old swapout for a Refurbed unit. 3. Check out,,, and YOUTUBE long video clips dealing with LCD monitor disassembly and LCD repair. could be helpful in making decision on what to do. I'm 12fixlouie If this was helpful rate on fixya.

Asus Monitor boes blank and comes back after power recycle

1. You can see images on the screen for a few minutes. That means there is nothing wrong with your computer.

2. When your screen goes blank, if you disconnect and then reconnect the monitor, it shows fine again for a few minutes before going blank (or dim) again. That means the problem is not with you video card.

3. It always shows the image after reconnection for exactly a few minutes before going blank again. yes? this means that there is nothing wrong with your cable.

Conclusion: Sorry, but you do not have many options. I bleieve that the problem is with your monitor that's going bad. Its far cheaper to get it replaced than to repair it.

The monitor screen blank / black and power on off switch flashes

You could check the VGA cable from the replicator to the monitor, but a problem with that will usually cause a "NO SIGNAL" message to appear. So your issue seems to lie within the monitor. It could be that the backlight has quit. That can be determined by booting the laptop and connecting it to the replicator, or perhaps to the monitor directly, and observe the screen using a good flashlight, place the flashlight flush on the screen in an area where you would expect to see an icon or some recognizable image. Look closely to see if the image can be seen. If the image is there, then the screen is ok but the backlight is out. The problem is usually the inverter. A reputable shop might be able to replace that.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

The power -inverter board probably needs an overhaul.
I redo many of these.
If the screen was pinkish or flickering before it finally got to this point, it is possible that a bulb has gone bad.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After going blank, you check that you can see the image on the screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
