Its more or less your monitor has gone bad.
To check the same , unplug the monitor from the computer , a slef test feature check would be displayed . Check if the monitor goes blank or shows ghost lines . If yes the monitor is bad. If you have got the system before 12 Dec 2005 its generaly covered under 3 yrs warranty.If purchased after that , it would have your system warranty

I get ghost images. Is there a way to de-gaus an LCD monitor?


Sounds like it's either ghosting, or image persistance.

Ghosting on LCD monitors is usually caused by interference via the monitor cable. Try moving your monitor cable so that it doesn't pass near any other cables or electronic devices. If that helps, then position the cable away from the others perminantly or replace the cable with a "shielded" monitor cable.

Image persistance on an LCD can be caused by leaving it on with the same image for a very long time. The pixels don't exactly "burn-in" like on the old CRT monitors, but over time, they can develop a memory that causes them to change color slowly or incompletely. Prevention is best (turn the monitor off when not in use, or use a rotating screen saver.) But if it is already a problem, you do have a few options. You can turn it off for a long time, run a rotating screen saver for a long time, or display a solid white screen for a while. Another technique is to create a slideshow in the Windows screensaver with a solid white image and a solid black image (create them in MS Paint and save them where you can find them later.) Let it alternate between the white and black screens for a while and check to see improvements.

Good luck!

If it is still in warranty call the manufacturer.

Liquid Video monitor goes black after 30 seconds


Capacitors on the power board inside the lcd monitor have blown they can be replaced with new ones and the monitor should return to normal operation.
service center or if you feel capable you can do it your self with a soldering iron and the correct caps that have blown you need voltage and micro faradays usually 25 v at 470 mfd (u)however monitors use different kinds and voltages can be different it will be marked on the side of the damaged capacitors.

White light


Your inverter is working or you would not have the light. I suspect the fuse on the LCD panel itself has blown , which is under the metal cover on the lcd panel itself labeled F1 near the input connector has blown. I would check this first.

Monitor goes Black off and on .....


I had the same problem for about a week and solved it yesterday by downloading the latest driver by NVDIA who makes my video card (NVDIA GeForce 6200).
I had previously updated the latest Sony driver for the monitor. It did not solve the problem but could be part of the solution in conjunction with the new video card driver.

LCD Monitor Goes Black during Use


I had the problem sometimes, but then I connected a second computer to the analog input and found out, that the screen didnt turn black but switches between the inputs on an on.

I found out that the "input" button seems to be short or damaged, as the behaviour was invertable by pressing the button. I blew into the button some times (a very naive solution, yeah) but it worked, the switching stoppped.

Check the buttons on your monitor for possible shorts. Sometimes pressing a sequence of buttons while turning the monitor on will lock the OSD.

Monitor goes black with a white horizontal line across the middle of the screen


Check to see that the monitor cable is correctly installed. Also, make sure you have the most up-to-date drivers installed for your graphics adaptor card(both ATI and Nvidia carry catch-all driver programs to keep you up to date.) Tighten the cable screws of course, to make sure the monitor cable isnt just wiggling in its seating.
