Hi,
I had the same problem before. I open my set to find out the faulty component are at power supply main board.
I change the electrlytic capacitor 680microfarad and a resistor burnt near the FET.
You can visual check first.Color changes and bulky form on cap and burnt resistor easily.
Have a try.

My monitor goes blank after a while,power light still on,why is this & what can I do?


Check connection cable with videocard on your PC, unplug it and carefully plug it in again. (Turn off your monitor during this operation). If monitor goes black after loading OS (like Windows), then your screen resolution higher then monitor can support. Load computer in Safe Mode and lower screen resolution.

Screen goes black after 2 seconds


This could be one of two problems, the light in your monitor has a loose cable, or the light is dying. I have seen cold cathode lights that are about 10-15$ to buy and many instructions on putting them in yourself.

Solution 2, your cable is loose on the back of the monitor. Make sure you have the screws tightened on either side of the vga or dvi cable, both on the back of your monitor and on the back of your computer or laptop.

My screen goes black after a few seconds


Sounds like a bad solder joint on the printed circuit board. Once it heats up then it no longer makes good contact and the monitor goes black until it cools down and makes contact again. You could resolder it if you knew where it was but monitors are dangerous to go playing around with as they can hold very high charges of electricity in their capacitors that are very dangerous. It's a throw away world. Go buy a new one.

The problem is not with your screen. Its the problem of Video Card of your system which is unable to send Video Signals to the Screen.

Dell E173FPc 17" TFT when turned on goes black


Hi Gaz,

First, verify the monitor is functional.
Monitor STFC (Self Test Feature Check)
Turn off the monitor
Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket to remove any surge protectors or APCs from the troubleshooting equation
Unplug the monitor video cable from the back of the computer
Turn on the monitor
The floating dialog box should appear on screen against a black background.
If the issue appears during the STFC, the monitor is defective. What are the results please?

Monitor screen goes out (black) 2 seconds after turning on


Your site is extremely misleading and fraudulent. I was under the impression that I would at least get a hint at what might be a problem instead of you folks making me wait to get a money for something answer that you could have displayed on your main page. Places like yours have no place on the internet and I'm going to find out what I can do to report you.

Thank's for nothing

Black screen


How old is the computer? Make sure that the power light comes onto the monitor when you plug it in, should be orange and then turn green when video card syncs with it when PC is turned on. If you are getting black screen when PC is powered on:
1. Bad video card
2. Bad video cable
3. Bad monitor
1Solution: Try using a different monitor attached to this same PC and see if it works. If it does, then its the monitor, its cable, or its power supply. If it doesn't work, then its the video card or the video cable coming from monitor.
