Hi Thanks for your question.
First of all you should check connections. That means using known good monitor cable to get this possibility out of the way. Your problem sounds like Backlight in your monitor went bad. With little knowledge you could possibly buy and replace the backlight yourself and if you are interested in how to do it yourself please click hear to have a look. If not looks like you will need to give your local service a go or buy a new monitor. I hope this helps. Good Luck

Sounds like your backlight has gone faulty, this is a pretty easy repair, however it can be either the inverter, the power supply, or the lamp itself. You really need a service manual, to see how to do it and troubleshoot, exactly locate your fault. Otherwise,all one can do, is swap out, know good for bad, starting with the Power Supply, and working back, as if PSU isn't working 100% nothing else can do.

SOURCE: my monitor loads up, but the screen goes black, i

This must be caused by a bad or damaged capacitor(s) on the Inverter board (power supply board). The only solution is to replace the defective capacitors. To do this, you'll need some electronic tools like soldering iron, soldering wire/paste, etc.. and most of all the capacitors with the exact Unit. You'll need to refer to the one on the board for the unit, it should be written on the capacitor itself as "?" followed by the value. Actually this is related to backlight, but since backlight shows up and you could see the picture for a short period, then the reason is behind the regulators, means the capacitors. If you have idea how to solder or how to remove the soldered components, go ahead and replace them. You'll be easily able to identify them, bulged or exploded or broken.... If you don't know how to use and how to disassemble the monitor, I don't recommend as you might damage other components which will cause another bigger issue. I hope you understand.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

The capacitors for the power source are failing. This causes a short burst of power to get to the lamps, but then they cannot hold a charge to continuously power the lamps. You will have to replace the monitor. I suggest checking your warranty status and replacing the monitor.

VA1703wb... Monitor beeps when I turn on the pc then goes black


Please read below and look at the pictures of failed VIEWSONIC nd othe monitor before try to DIY repair.
Most common failures 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 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.

Laptop has a black screen no picture.


It sounds like the back-light in your laptop's LCD screen has died. If you turn the laptop on, and hold the screen up to the light, you may be able to see the operating system and windows, but since the screen isn't emitting any light, it appears to be off or all black. If this is the case, you'll need to either replace the back-light, have the laptop repaired, or replace the whole thing. There's no easy fix for a dead back-light.

The l226wtq goes black


Try shining a flashlight on the screen, or without the flashlight, try to see if you can distinguish anything on the screen at all, if you do, the backlight is dead, or the monitor has an internal most likely unfixable problem.

No Signal


You have to use the FN key and F5 to change between the LCD screen and the external monitor. It may be F8 also, depending on the laptop model.

Look on the F keys for a little picture of a monitor.

Once you have found it, hold the FN key and tap the F key and it should switch to the external monitor.

Black Screen-No picture


Normally when an LCD monitor goes black, it is because the inverter goes out (which essentially is the backlighting).  To verify this problem, hold a flashlight up to the monitor while it is turned on and see if you can "see" the picture.  If this is the case, it could be repaired, but realistically, the cost to replace it might be cheaper (and you would probably end up with a larger monitor to boot).

Monitor only stays on for 3 seconds


There is probably a bad capacitor within the monitor that will not allow the picture to "hold" in the on configuration. This will need to be replaced. You can send it back to Phillips, or 17" monitors are pretty cheap these days. I would suggest a Samsung or BenQ. They both carry 3yr warranties.
