One, your lcd screens inverter might be blown. two, your video card might be gone. three, both might be gone. check for any blown capacitors on ur video card. if none, open the casing of you lcd and unmount the giant chunk of metal shielding. make sure you wait a couple hour for the good capacitors to discharge. check for the cylinder looking electronic components. if any of them are leaking anything onto the board, throw the lcd out. if any have rounded tops or burst open tops (they should be flat) throw the lcd out. if any have burst open tops and had spewed stuff out, throw away the lcd. check for these on your motherboard from time to time as well as your video card.

I tested in my PC with the cables of my own monitor (Benq FP92Wa) and the image pop-up just fine, but after 5 seconds the monitor goes black. I tried to reboot in safe mode but the same thing happens


If the monitor has the same problem on two different computers, it is most likely the monitor has a problem. This monitor is probably about 9 years old, and it would probably cost more to fix it than to buy a new one.

HP F1703 Screen goes black within seconds of startup


That is either the backlight or its power supply.

This is a bit tricky as you can get it fixed under warrenty but they will likely ask you to send back the entire computer not just the monitor. It is also something that you could fix or several shops could but the repair cost really isn't much less than a new monitor. You are not stuck using an HP monitor so anything will work and you can get quite a lot bigger or better for about $120 and up. Repair cost is going to be $80-$100 so as you can see for just a few dollars more you have a new warrentied monitor.

Display comes on for a few seconds at boot up then goes black. Same again on rebooting PC.


terencecomma, It happens quite a lot to cold cathode fluorescent lamp back-lit lcd monitors. Just do some reading of my and other fixya technician's profiles and you will understand the huge problem you will be dealing with. Wow!!! You have a lot to learn about how lcd monitors work and more importantly, the reason they go to black or blank n black screen!!! You must know what is inside your monitor and what it may take to restore it back to working order. Keep us informed of what you learn. Good luck on your quest. 12fixlouie, or for older monitor stuff try profile on "louie12fix"

Black screen


try another working monitor on your computer, if it works good than you know you have a bad monitor. If the other, working monitor does not work, than you know the problem lays with the computer. That could be a bad video card, or failing RAM.

Sharp light turns green thern turns yellow screen goes black


it is going into sleep mode, good luck with this.... i am currently asking how to get my hard drive to quite putting my monitor into sleep mode.

although it hasn't worked for me because my screen stays black, one of the options given to me is to try to start in safe mode and then adjust your settings to "never" on the energy/sleep/hibernate mode

some one else suggested that i remove and reseat the video card

hopefully one of those will work for you

My new hp2408w monitor goes black when I quit working for a while. I walk back in the room ready to continue and the screen is black, the screen saver is not on and I don't know how to make it come back...


You may have the power saving features enabled in XP. I believe it's on by default. Usually the monitor would come on automatically by moving the mouse. You can disable this feature:

Start -> Control Panel -> Switch to Classic View (if not already enabled) - > Power Options -> Change "Turn off Monitor" to never

Monitor goes black


Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!
