    This monitor will not display anything but a light gray screen after it is turned off. It's a fight to reboot and pull plugs out and finally, usually after a 2nd or 3rd reboot the monitor will have a display. I hate to keep my computer on all the time.

The monitor is either overheating, or (more likely I think) the overheat sensor is sending a false overheat signal.

I've heard it can be bypassed by either clipping the sensor or clipping and then shorting the leads. I can't confirm that and I don't know what the sensor looks like or what it is.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

When I turn it on , it flicks on and then off. Since there is no image, I turn off and then on again which results in the same: it flick an image on and then it turns it off.

if you look closely can you see a very dark image on the screen? your problem is usually the result of the backlight on its way out, these are very hard to replace so you will need to take it to a profesional, in most cases it is cheeper to buy a new screen.

If you see a very dim image or black screen or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Kds model 780 monitor no signal, power button does not work

My monitor does the same thing at times and sometimes shows "No Signal" and at other times the screen will maintain the images but the backgound color switches to mustard yellow. In each of these cases I have been able to solve the problem by unplugging the power cord from the electical outlet for about three seconds and plugging it back in. I have a KDS model 780 LCD.

Kds just two seconds

I have the sameproblem soI plugged in a HP 1702 after 2 days it started doing the same thing. I am using an old school kds with no problems.

Could it be a bug in the system with flat screens.

best I can tell, the Rad 5S is out of warranty, and you appear to be having a problem with the image inverter.

#1 Try the monitor on another system and ensure that the issue is the monitor, and not the video card it is attached to as the point of failure.

#2 If the monitor appears to be failing, contact a local TV repair shop on a repair estimate. Likely answer is that you can buy a larger better monitor cheaper than you can get the one you have repaired, even if the parts cost is low, due to the bench fee/labot cost of repairs.

Here is one site I like for monitors:
