    I am using a Proview 17" LCD monitor (700P) which is 3 years old. Since last week, when I turn on the monitor the display comes on; stays for 1 second and goes off, while the power LED is still on. Actually it is not completely off; if you look closer, you can still see the display which is very faint.

    After turning off and on for 10-15 times, then the display stays on until I turn the monitor off.

    Is there any reset that needs to be done or is the monitor at the end of its life cycle?

Does the ON indicator light stays on ? if it does then the problem is a cold solder or burn solder . If your handy , you have to open monitor and look inside the PC BOARD where you ll see a transformer , check for a burn spot around that area , re solder it , and try again , it should be working properly, hope this helps and please rate solution , thanks AJ

Benq fp581 screen goes blank after about half a second evertime i turn on my computer.

Even thought the monitor looks blank check to see if you can see a faint image (shining a flashlight at the monitor sometimes helps). If you can see an image it could mean that the inverter board has gone bad.

I have also heard of an overheated computer causing a similar problem.

More likely to have problem in either the backlight light inverter board or bad lamps due to poor solder connections, see
You will need test lamp to narrow down the problem.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

The power -inverter board probably needs an overhaul.
I redo many of these.
If the screen was pinkish or flickering before it finally got to this point, it is possible that a bulb has gone bad.

Looks like one of your backlights is bad, first indication is the red or pink tint, replacement of the lamp is fairly easy. If one lamp is bad the inverter will not work. You can get a replacement lamp from Mouser electronics for about $12
