Monitor show picture for a few seconds, then turns black

Starting a few days ago, my monitor always turns black afterworking for a few seconds. When I turn the monitor off and back on, it works for a few seconds again. After doing this a few times (or sometimes many times), the display works just fine. Does anybody have an idea what might be the problem?

It sounds like the power supply board on your monitor is failing. If it's still under warranty you might be able to get a replacement from the manufacturer - if not, you might be able to have it repaired at a computer or TV repair shop.

Tmy monitor shows the images only for 20 seconds, then it turns black.


Hi hope your monitor issue has resolved. I would suspect the problem is a hardware issue then a software setting. Since the monitor is over three and half years old, if your monitor is a LCD with CCFL back light and had been used almost every day, there may be 3 possible hardware issues. First is the internal power supply, that can go wrong due to heating problem within the monitor, this problem usually cause the monitor to display poor quality picture and may show interference lines on screen prior failure. Secondly, it may be the inverter that drives the back light, which may fail due to the safety circuit kicks in, because it involves with high voltages. Thirdly it may be the backlight itself, which is like most compact CCFL energy saving lamps that flickers or turn itself off when it reaches the end of its service life. This problem usually caused the monitor to show redness or yellowness images prior failure.

All of these can be resolved by qualified electronic repairers, all the best.

M1991 screen stays black, little light is yellow


The fault is a back-light problem and the fault could be a faulty inverter board or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Same problem - unplug both computer and monitor - hold power button for monitor for 15-30 seconds...then power it back on and then power on the computer. Seems from other sites there is a power issue with the monitor - this worked for me.

The backlight or inverter is going out on your screen.
Eventually it will just stay dark. You will need to replace one of the two if plan on keeping monitor.

If you find this helpful please rate so.

My monitor turns itself off


If it's only a few months old then send it back under warranty.
The fault you have is the inverter circuit.

Hope that helps. =)

Monitor only stays on for 3 seconds


There is probably a bad capacitor within the monitor that will not allow the picture to "hold" in the on configuration. This will need to be replaced. You can send it back to Phillips, or 17" monitors are pretty cheap these days. I would suggest a Samsung or BenQ. They both carry 3yr warranties.

The picture disapears, though the monitors stays on - every few seconds


Check the cable connections on the back of the monitor and the PC it sounds like the connection isn't made properly make sure they are tight.
