Benq fp581 screen goes blank after about half a second evertime i turn on my computer.


Even thought the monitor looks blank check to see if you can see a faint image (shining a flashlight at the monitor sometimes helps). If you can see an image it could mean that the inverter board has gone bad.

I have also heard of an overheated computer causing a similar problem.

Blank screen


Try plugging the laptop into an external monitor to make sure the laptop is booting up properly. If it is unplug the monitor from the laptop; or if you know the laptop boots up fine and you get the windows audio when it boots and the initial starting beeps then forget the monitor. Shine a torch or light source on the screen and if you see a faint picture then the inverter on the screen has developed a fault.

The screen went blank while the computer was on, we restarted it, the screen shows the Dell sign & the white bar then it goes blank, it won't go into safe mode, the light is green on the monitor, what...


If there is a faint image in the background it is the coils on the planar if no image it is either the invertor or the backlight
If you have a faint image resolder the coils or replace them

Emachines model 780 monitor comes on for one second then goes blank


CANNOT COMPUTE!!!! NEED MORE DATA! Is your monitor the problem or the computer? Try connecting the monitor to another computer. You can also try connecting a laptop with an external video adaptor to the monitor to test it.

I have a packard bell EASYNOTE MZ36 the screen has gone blank, not even a faint image on the screen. but works fine on a external monitor?


First try and press and hold the FN key and then press the F4 key. The screen will disappear from the external monitor and should appear on Laptop. Try a few times and see what happens. This is a common problem and usually can either be a keying error or the back light operation of LCD screen needs replacement. Cost can vary from $70 - $150 AU. Go to ebay and find if there is a replacement for you. See how you go and let me know!

Laptop Monitor keeps going blank or near blank. When the monitor is moved into a different position it may turn back on or it may not.


Sounds like the back light of the screen is playing up or there is a loose wire. Either way the screen will stop completely and will not keep working. The best thing to do is try and buy a new back light for laptop screen and replace it, or take it to a professional to look at and repair for you. It's not a simply fix. Thanks igi_57!

Turn on monitor green light but blank white screen can faintly see windows underneath. Have to switch on and off at least 20 times to get a screen. Is it the monitor or the video card?


Could be either but most likely the monitor or cable depending on your setup. Hate to say it but the only way to tell is to try replacing one. The monitor is the easiest. (If you buy one and it doesnt fix it, you can always return)

please rate.
