It is a backlight issue. You will need to get it serviced.

Hello,
If you can see a faint outline of things you're still getting a video signal of some sort. Most issues of this nature are related to a loose monitor cable or bent pin. To check this, power your system off, at the back of your computer is a blue connector, check that the textured knobs are tightly screwed into place. Next, lay your flat panel flat onto a piece of cardboard and unplug the power cable. The cables to the back of the panel usually have a removable cover panel that most come away with a firm tug outwards. Under this you'll see the same type of connector that is at the back of the PC. Remove the connector by unscrewing the plug knobs with a screwdriver. Then, look for any pin that may be bent over on itself. If you find one, that's the cause, but by all means do not try to straighten this out yourself (it will most likely break) you'll need a tech with the correct tools to bring the pin back into position. However, if you don't see a bent pin breath more easily now. Without using force push the connector onto the pins until they get a good start and you know the connector is not upside down. Then, tighten it firmly into place using a screwdriver. Plug the power cord back in and set the panel back into place. If all is fine now that was your problem. If you still have a problem see if the device the connector cable attaches to at the back of the PC is loose or firm. If it is loose have someone qualified to open up a PC reset the device itself. If it is firm and you have already pressed the "reset" button on the flat panel to attempt to resolve this, return the monitor to your vendor by first phoning them or emailing them explaining to them what you have done already to resolve this yourself and request an RMA. RMA mean Returned Merchandise Authorization and is accompanied with a number that will be issued to you along with a specific mailing address. It is customary for one party to pay shipping one way and the other party to pay shipping back. Still, some vendors will pay for both ways and ship you a prepaid address label. Sure, you'll be without the monitor for a week or so, but most money back warranties are only 30 days old. And, also, don't be too surprised if you are passed onto someone else or told to call the manufacturer directly, just ask for the direct number if told to do so and don't let anyone put you off or try to sell you a new one. Hope this helps.

My monitor runs for about 4 seconds then blacks out. turn it off and on again an it comes on for another 4 seconds before blacking out. Any ideas? Larry


larryz 10, Did it work ok before this "black screen of death" started to occur?? Have you done any OS changes to the pc? Is unit still covered by warranty? Will "known good" old monitor work ok with pc? Have you performed the "flashlight test" that all cold cathode fluorescent lamp back-lit lcd monitor owners should know and understand the results of when black screen of death rears it's ugly head??? If BSOD not caused by software, could be problem with the monitor's internal "switch mode power supply/ccfl inverter supply" going into partial shut down (you see very faint image when flashlight is 1 inch from screen) or full shutdown ( no see image)!!! If +12v dc rail goes to shut down, then CCFL tubes will go off!!! No white light! If you do not know how the new style, screw-in curlie-Q, energy efficient, CFL light bulbs work, then go visit YOUTUBE for some video clips of ANY BRAND of CCFL back-lit lcd monitors having their SMPS/inverter supply being repaired. Remember this: Your lcd monitor isn't any different than any other brand in it's basic engineering design and mode of operation!!! If and when the "white LED" back-lit monitors hit the store shelves, then and only then will the CCFL electronic (600vac to 1000vac) ballast become history. Do some reading at this very old (2005) blog, even though not your model hp display. http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/ After you do your research, return here if you require more help or feel you have been helped by this response and would care to give it a rating on fixya. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie north of Windy City.

The monitor goes black while on


Open it up and look at the capacitors. The round "tin can" looking components. If the tops appear bulged, then replacing them may help. Check out the YouTube video... and web site...

My acer al1916w displays the image for 3 seconds then goes black


Sounds like your video card. Check to make sure it's connected properly. If so, check to make sure it's properly seated to *********** board. The possible issue could be the card is connected enough to display the picture, but not enough to communicate with the monitor to stay on because it has an active feed. Best of luck fixing it

mark587, Did you shine a very bright flashlight 1" from the screen to try and see the WIN-desktop ?? Even though the screen appears BLACK. Your words above said: JUST CAN'T SEE IT Did you really NOT see anything? Have you seen any of the longer video clips of "LCD Monitor Disassembly" on YOUTUBE? Some BLACK screen "symptom" lcd displays can be repaired for less than $10 in parts. Capacitors! Also check videos on lcd repair. Then get back here to fixya and I or any of the guys can help you decide what to do with your display whoose screen is now dark and lifeless. After doing the YOUTUBE thing you may even tell us what you will do!!! Hope this was helpful. Yes we do want to hear back from you. please rate this response on fixya. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com. Bye for now.

If it was the power supply, the light would change to amber (orange) and then turn green again when it comes back on. Look closely at the screen when the it looks to turn off. See if you can still see an image. It may be hard to see, but when the backlights go bad or fail, the actual lcd screen itself still functions and you can see a very faint image. Maybe moving the mouse in circles might help you to be ablt to see. If you cant see anything at all, then it may be a bad board inside the unit.
Just a thought....

Monitor went black in seconds


oboy, One thing to try is the flashlight test. and get backto me with your findings. Tell me, does this lcd show a nice display only for 1-2 seconds and then a black screen when connected to a fully booted PC with Windows desktop displayed? Shine a bright flashlight 1-2 inches from panel and tell me if you see the WINDOWS START Button at lower left of screen even though screen is black! Get back to me if you can.

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

Good picture for 30 seconds then screen goes black with a faint ghost of the image


the 12V is for speakers.. the 245bw takes regular 120V AC (same cord as your computer)

the buzzing is annoying, though. i don't know if it's a "feature" or just a side effect.. ie, if i could take the case off and poke around, i would. 4 times out of 5 it's some dumb piece of tin reverberating from a transformer or something..
