Hi,
Unplug the monitor from the back of your computer tower. If the LCD is not displaying any Video the monitor has gone bad. If it displays self test feature check window. It could be a graphic card driver problem.

The most common problem with all screens is either the main power supply or the inverter for the florescent back lights.

My computer monitor is a black screen....the light is lit solid green and I can hear the software playing just no picture


If the light is green, I suspect that the backlight has gone out on you. This could also be caused by you having the brightness turned all the way down.

Dell E173FP 17 monitor went dark and not working. I restart the pc it shows for only few second and went out again. I plug in one other monitor in my pc and it work fairly well. So something not right with...


Hi!

There are three possible cause why your monitor went black and start working..

1. If your monitor is dead set.. no reaction or lights turn on after power on.. then it needs to check if there is blown capacitor in its power supply section..

2. The high voltage ballast transformer of the backlight inverter is burned - it needs to be replaced so that it will not have a direct effect on the power supply section of the monitor.

3. The backlight inverters are all busted - the backlight was located at the upper and lower back edge of the monitor.. If these lights are busted then all that will be seen in your monitor is black screen.. It will need to be replaced so that image display will come out from your screen..

These 3 reason and its solutions can only be done by yourself if you have the knowledge, proper skills and the right tools to open the back cover of the monitor and replace the problem parts....

Otherwise, bring your monitor to a credible technician and if there is warranty,, avail of this...

Hope that answer your question..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

It started flickering then went black. When powered off and then back on, it will work for a couple of seconds then go black.


Hi!

I think what your monitor is experiencing right now is because of the backlight inverter in your lcd monitor is about to give up...The backlight inverter is a cold cathode light thats responsible for the image in your screen.. if the lights located on the upper and lower edge of the monitor will be busted then what you will see is black screen.. You will need to replace that in your monitor.

However, without the proper skills to do that and proper tools to open the monitor.. it will be risky for the safety of your monitor..

I suggest that you bring your monitor to a credible technician to replace busted backlight or (burned high voltage ballast transformer - supplying current to backlight)


I hope this help..

Monitor backlight problem (Dell S2409W)


pa_ma_fi, Have you figured out how to do the flashlight test on you monitor when it's lcd panel turns black or blank n black. No, CCFL back-lit lcd monitors require lots of things to be working all together at once to light up the CCFL tubes. The new style curlie-Q screw-in, energy efficient CFL light bulbs are of the same similar technology and use an "electronic-ballast" circuit to "light-up" the lamp! You will need to check to see if pc is working perfectly with old monitor that you know is good. You should do some free reading here at fixya in my and other fixya ccfl back-lit lcd technicians profiles. ou will also need to visit YOUTUBE for "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" videos. May need printed circuit board "switch-mode-power-supply/ ccfl inverter supply " to be repaired If pc software/firmware has been determined not to be causing this on/off/on/off symptom.

Hanns-G HW191D LCD - Image there, just not bright! Monitor looks black


There is a flourescent light that backlights the screen. If your screen brightness control will not make the screen any brighter, then the backlight has stopped working. You will either have to replace that light or replace the monitor.

LiquidVideo L17LCD2 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor - Power Issues


firstly stop turning it off and on because you will blow something else like a power board then it will be a big paper weight.
next get a torch and when it is powered on and supposed to be showing images, shine the torch at the screen.
if you can see everything then you have a broken backlight or problem with your backlight and connections.
they cost approx £15 and a little labour, its not a big job. you may be able to do it yourself if you can get hold of a service manual.

My Acer LCD AL1711 went off after seconds of turning on.


This monitor has "back lights" that are essentially like flourescent lights. These are high voltage lights and can easily fail. since you are getting some light initially, I would suspect a defective part that heats up a bit right away and then fails. I would try to replace the entire backlight board. This is the small board on the side (usually).

You my friend have a bad backlight. Inside thes LCD monitors there a little tiny flourecnet lights that help the LCD project the images so that you can see what is being displayed. Sounds like your backlight has gone bad. These can be repaired, but can be costly! These things happen often times, 90% of the time I am replacing the backlights to various monitors. Sorry, but I am certain it is your backlight!

Monitor Black, Green Power Light Flashes Monitor is 4 yrs. old


Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
