LMAO it sounds like it is going into power-saving mode because there is (or it -thinks- there is) no signal. Has it always done this? Try punching up the controls when you turn it on and changing its behavior through those menus. Doublecheck the monitor's connection to the computer. Alternately, if it is connected and a display is coming up for those 10 seconds; perhaps just going into sleep mode, with the power LED changing appropriately; you can look up the exact model, and find schematics and previously solved instances of your case.
Even if you can't find those, you could read through some introductory electronic circuit books (and the internals of the monitor...unplug and read the books' safety bits first) and determine what went bad and how to replace that component.

My microtek flat screen monitor goes black every 5 seconds and must turn it off and back on and it repeats the same thing.


I assume that you have already try it on another PC with the same result.
Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further.

HPW2338h goes black after about 3 seconds. Push power button on, it turns on and then black after 3 seconds. Power light on monitor stays on.


hi,

you can try to change the screen resolution with a spare monitor to a different setting, usually higher 1024X768, then unplug the old monitor and then plug in the flat screen. try different resolutions untill it submits. if you cant get it to run on your machine, take it to another computer and see if you can get it to run on that. if it wont run on either then you have a problem with the monitor. pawn shops usually have flatscreens for way cheaper than new..

Dell Computer Monitor - Black Screen


If it worked on a computer at the IT person, it is most likely a faulty graphics card in your computer. You may want to get that checked out.

Powers up, shows test menu then black screen


This sounds like a video problem with the COMPUTER.....try the monitor on another computer. Usually, if you can see the monitor test pattern the monitor is ok.

Microtek 997M monitor doesn't stay on...


The inverter is the most common item to fail on a LCd monitor. Capacitors usally fail the most. Are the tops of any of them popped up. If you had any shorted transistors the fuse would probably be blown. Usally labeled F1. I would replace all the capacitors first and go from there. Capacitors are cheap.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


I start my computer and turn it on, and everything looks fine for about 1/4 of a second and then it goes black while leaving the power light green. I can only see the screen again after turning it off and on, but that's only for another 1/4 second. What's up?
I got my rosewill flatscreen as a hand me down from my father. I've had it for several years now. Was working fine until a month ago. When I turn the computer on the screen goes black after 1/4 of a saecond. I have to turn it off and on anywhere from 10 to 20 times before it stays on. I have checked all plugs to the computer and outlets. I have absolutely no idea whats causing this.
