When I turn the computer on, the screen brightens for just a moment, then goes completely black. If I press the buttons on the monitor (plus, minus, etc), the monitor flashes a message that it is in Power Save Mode, waiting on the mouse to move, or to press any keyboard key. Moving the mouse and pressing keys does not remedy the situation, the monitor just stays black. Can you help?

Re: Monitor not receiving data from computer?
If you did not hear any beep from your CPU, then the problem is in the system not the screen. Try connecting the screen to another computer and try also a working screen of a friend to your computer... You'll find out that either the screen or the computer...
Good luck... post me back for your result. Don't forget to rate too. Thanks...

I have had the same problem as others seem to have had with the dell
flat panel. After leaving the screen on for some time, the monitor
brightens for a moment, then goes black, while the green light stays on.
When I reboot, it works again for some time, or if I remove the cable
for a few minutes and plug it back in (with monitor turned off) it will
come back on...only to repeat the black screen. I have changed the power
features, screen resolution, downloaded updated drivers from dell, and
viewed dells troubleshooting advice on the monitor cd that came with the
computer. Nothing directly advises on this problem, but I have read
here and in other online message boards the exact same problem.
Anyone able to fix this?
Hi, Just press the menu button at the bottom the screen bezel and then select brightness. You can decrease and increase the brightness by pressing the plus or minus button . Hope this helps Thanks Dennis
Press the menu button on the monitor, should be the far left button...use the minus and plus buttons to scroll thru the menu. Select the function you want by pressing the far right button (not the power). The function you want is the one witht the temp icon and the letter "K". press the far right buttion again and use the the plus and minus buttons to adjust the level.
Hope that helps.

You might need to change the screen refresh rate. Go do Control Panel> Display> Setting> Advance, choose 60 Hz. In order to make your Monitor able to display, restart the PC, press F8 on the keyboard frequently upon splashing ( 1 or 2 seconds after PC restarts). Select enable VGA mode by pressing up arrow of the keyboard> press enter. The display should look bigger, then you can start adjusting the screen refresh rate to 60 Hz
I just fixed my for less then 1 minute. Here was the problem, when turn on the PC with the monitor connected. The screen appear like normal for about 2 seconds then shut off black but the GREEN power LED stay on, if i press the power off and turn it back on the screen act the same thing.
Here how to fix it, turn off the PC, unplug the monitor power cable then plug it back. The power LED will stay amber. Hold down both brights minus - and plus + same time, turn on the PC, keep hold the - and + buttons press the power button turn on the monitor.
You will see the screen back on, just hold for about 10 more seconds till you see the screen seem to stay on fine then realse them. That's it how i fixed my.....GOOD LUCK
We have a dis-assebly and repair guide posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/monitor_repair.htm The problem is usually the driver transistors, our guide shows where they are and what to replace to get your monitor back running again.
I didn't have the monitor connected to the computer, and that's why the power button was unresponsive. After connecting it, the solution above worked for me.(My KVM switch was set to a computer that was turned off)
