The square color bar with red/blue/green bar is on when you first turn on the monitor, it wil disappear and go into standby mode if it does not receive the video signal from the PC. Try it with another PC first and make sure the cable is good. If it still does not work then you will have to open it up.


If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I am trying to diagnose a problem with my son's laptop screen going blank. I shall try to describe the symptoms. 1. When plugged into an external monitor, everything works fine. 2.The laptop screen...


Have you check the cable that goes from the screen at the motherboard? Usually this cable is not visible; it is hidden it one of the joints between screen and main body of the notebook.This cable is the most common problem in the cases that the notebook keeps on working although the screen is black. You can check it by opening slowly - slowly the screen all the way up and closing again slowly. If there is a cut at the cable your screen will get black at a specific slope.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

Thanks and regards

Monitor flickers and goes blank after 5 seconds and keep repeating this very often.


Hello,

If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

Turn on computer and va2012wb comes on for 2 sec then go to blank screen but if i turn off monitor and when turn it back on it come on again for 2 sec. help


Most case will be bad capacitors in the power supply, that will be the first place to check, worst case will be the lamps. See example what goes bad in LCD monitors:

Monitor is blank/black


It is probably the inverter board inside the monitor.
(if the screen does properly display ever then it is not the screen)
It CAN be fixed but I do not suggest anyone open up a monitor (LCD or CRT)
who is not "technically inclined." If you really want to fix this
particular one then take it to a local tech and get an estimate first. If it's almost as much as a new monitor then buy a new one.
