My monitor will remain black when notebook is powered up

I turn my computer on and the notebook's monitor remains black.  The power button is lit, but the screen remains black.  I have only owned the notebook for around 40 days

Tried on power only and battery only. No better with either.

Black uses much less power. It's a device for automation, so you really should not lavish the watts and attention on it unless it has to perform something truly novel.

If you really want to use the monitor though, you can use the function-key combination used to switch the display between internal and external displays.

My Samsung SyncMaster 740N occasionally turns itself off. Timing varies and the condition varies. Usually the screen just goes black - from seconds to hours after it is turned on - the blue LED remains...


This could be because of the 'eco' friendliness of the monitor. Basically a lot of monitors are designed to turn off into a low power state when not in use so to preserve power and life of the monitor. I would return the monitor as the sensors that control this seem to be broken in your monitor.

The laptop needed charging. After charging, when the power button was pushed, the screen remained black. The power button is lit. What is the problem?


Sometimes when you reset the computer, that happens. disconnect the AC and count to 10. Plug back in. If that doesn't work...turn on from the power and that should automatically reset the screen.

Check the power supply DC filter cpas first.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

AOC color monitor model 5En...during power on all led lights blinks then stops blinking without display action. all led lights on no more action observed.


actually if u repair an aoc monitor alone without getting connected to cpu once u switch on the monitor all led's will lit on ( green light ) it will remain on situation until u connect the vga connector to cpu that's the time led's will lit off and only the power led will remain in green condition.some aoc 5en once u power on power led is in green condition and if not connected to cpu it will be in orange condition.hope u get some idea but i am not sure if it will work with ur monitor. but as long as LEDs lit on i think no problem with ur monitor.

The screen remains black when i turn it on. The power button turns green and blinking but the screen remains black.


try using the Fn + F?key (has a graphic of a monitor)F5 or F7 to switch the system from external monitor to the laptop ... you probably have it in presentation mode for external monitor.
