Power supply failed.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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 SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

VL 1716 monitor. The display blanks out after 20-30 seconds. When I turn the power OFF anf Back ON, the display comes back normal, then blanks out agin after 20-30 seconds. The power light stays green.

This is due to system goes to stand by mode or Hibernate mode. To disable, go to power management and disable or incrase the time for the same.

Revert back for more assistance. Also give your valuable feedback/rating on the same.

Monitor says it is going to sleep and there is only a black screen.

Monitors go to sleep when there is no computer activity it detected. Also, when your OS is working and somehow you have set a "sleep" time, then the monitor goes to sleep at the appointed time. Just press ENTER or press the POWER BUTTON to bring it back to life without losing your computer work.

Like when i turn it on it stays on for 1 min and then the screen turns off. but the light is on

Is your computer turned on? If it is not providing any "signal" through the data-cable to the monitor, the monitor will eventually go into "power-saving" mode.

Have you tried connecting the monitor to a laptop computer?
If it works, then the monitor is OK, and your desktop computer is the problem.

Have you tried a different monitor with your computer?

Monitor is black. How do I fix it?

if the monitor led indicator is amber and and the hard drive (usually red) indicator on computer is blinking red. that means your computer is working but onboard video is dead. if under warranty, bring it back for replacement or repair.

Color dis-order and then flickering display

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the monitor drivers if any are applicable, run a direct X test on your hardware make sure your video card is OK. Try doing a wiggle test on the VGA cable that is plug ed into the back of your computer, that sends the signal to the monitor. Work your way from one end of the cable to the other, look at the monitor screen and see if there is any change in the color , if that don't do it its possible there could be a lose connection between the circuit board and the picture screen inside the monitor, unless your mechanically inclined and know some basics of electronics its recommended you don't do this and get some one who is qualified to do so, but if you are mechanically inclined and do know basics of electronics and if your feeling confident remove the power cord from the wall outlet, remove the power cord from the back of the monitor, shut down your computer and unplug it from the wall outlet, remove the VGA cable from your computer, examine where all the screws are that hold the housing from the monitor together put a white sheet on your bed and carefully and slowly split the housing which are the front and back of your monitor, in the center of the white sheet so if any screws fall out you'll see them on the sheet, when you pull the two halves apart, if it doesn't come apart don't force it study its body and check for more screws when you get them apart , before you touch anything inside the monitor touch a metal object some where in the room that has no electric or electronics on or with in it, to release any static electricity from you body once you do so and open the monitor check all connectors for looseness or any corrosion don't touch anything else but the connectors. if all is well and the problem still exist bring it to a repair shop or bye a new one go to EBay or try those are your cheapest places, unless money is no object.

When I select sleep or hibernate mode - the monitor stays black...

Hit the keyboard keys. It is better to just turn sleep and hibernate off and just use a screen saver or tun it off.
