Screen only works for 3 seconds then goes dark.

Upon turning the monitor on it stays on for about 3 seconds then goes dark. Have tried a different monitor using the same cables on my computer and it the other monitor works fine. I am pretty handy with a meter and think I can get this thing apart.any suggestions on where to start?

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 WESTINGHOUSE and other 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.

Notes: whenthe caps went out, it may have taken out the MOSFET and fuse (can be surface mounted fuse) in the inverter circuits with it.

The problem is definitely with your monitor. Yes, you can have it fixed but with the price of parts and labor it is not cost effective and it will be cheaper for you to get a new unit with a warranty to boot!

Monitor turns off after about 3-5 seconds


I would say your monitor is bad if you have tried it on 2 different monitors and it does the same on both. Check your warranty expiration date, some monitors have 2 or 3 years warranty. If it's still under warranty, you may be able to have it replaced or repaired.

LCD monitor comes on for 1-2 seconds and then screen goes dark (power light stays on - green). Turn monitor off and back on and same result.


It sounds like you could have either a faulty VGA cable (slim chance) or a faulty graphics processor.

Try using a different cable from a friend.

Good luck!

Monitor going black


HP's are known for bad capacitors in the power supply.
Replacing them is simple if you know how..not so simple if you don't.
Try your local TV repair centre. It should not cost alot to have the capacitors replaced.

Hope it helps =)

Scceen flickers on and off


You'll have to describe the problem in a bit more detail, because it could be a couple different things based on when it goes dark and what "dark" means.

I'm going to guess that the monitor is turning itself off after that second, but you might be describing that it doesn't say it's off, but there is no image (or maybe a really faint image that you can see in the bright light). Try checking it in the bright light after it goes dark. Also, does it seem different if you bang on, shake, or turn it upside down. Don't do this if you haven't already as it will more likely damage it than fix it, but if you have already banged on it, does it change?

I'm working on the same model with a similar problem (not sure it's the same) and will be ripping into it soon and will post the results.
