You may have the power saving features enabled in XP. I believe it's on by default. Usually the monitor would come on automatically by moving the mouse. You can disable this feature:

Start -> Control Panel -> Switch to Classic View (if not already enabled) - > Power Options -> Change "Turn off Monitor" to never

HP F1703 Screen goes black within seconds of startup


That is either the backlight or its power supply.

This is a bit tricky as you can get it fixed under warrenty but they will likely ask you to send back the entire computer not just the monitor. It is also something that you could fix or several shops could but the repair cost really isn't much less than a new monitor. You are not stuck using an HP monitor so anything will work and you can get quite a lot bigger or better for about $120 and up. Repair cost is going to be $80-$100 so as you can see for just a few dollars more you have a new warrentied monitor.

While working the screen goes black. If you power


Try that monitor on another computer, if it does the same thing then you know the monitor is the issue. If the monitor works fine on another computer then you know that the video card on the original computer is faulty.

If the monitor is faulty, take it apart and look for capacitors that are puffy, if you see any puffy ones, replace them with capacitors of the same Uf rating and at least the same voltage or more.

Problem started with a white screen, now It just remains black, installed my old monitor, works fine, put the KDS back in line, no picture, just black tried on off on the monitor and on the computer,...


jimmoser45, Could be trash! Could be a Trade-in on a new monitor! Try to follow me on this will-ya!!! You take your K226WDB to store and maybe get $10 knocked off the new one? Anyhow, you walk out with new LCD display and 1, poss 2yrs warranty. But the sales guy who just toted your K226 back to the "bench tech" in the back room and says to his 'tech' "Hey, here's one more! You fix it,,, give it to your 8yr old!" The tech replys. "Hey... Thanks. I'll look it over after break." Well later that day the tech opens up you're K226 looks at some stuff inside and then proceeds to make a repair that might bring new life back to this monitor. Maybe an hour later the tech hooks up the K226 to a pc and pushes the "ON" button of the monitor and with $5 in new parts,and a little LUCK an 8 yr old will have an LCD monitor with a nice, bright, crisp text and graphics being displayed on your old unit!!! Check out youtube first for video clips on "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" to help you make a decision on what steps you might take to keep your K226 unit out of an 8yr old's bedroom!! 12fixlouie

My screen shuts off but the laptop itself does


Try putting on an external monitor, if the external monitor stays on while the laptop lid goes out, your laptop monitor (lid) is going out (yes it happens quite a bit).

If the external monitor goes off also, Check all your power settings and video settings for the laptop (power setting can be found with the screensaver section of the desktop settings) - if all that is as it should be - it means it is your video card, and since the video card is mounted (intigrated) on the motherboard, there is not much more to do than replace the motherboard or get a new laptop.

Black screen


try another working monitor on your computer, if it works good than you know you have a bad monitor. If the other, working monitor does not work, than you know the problem lays with the computer. That could be a bad video card, or failing RAM.

JVC LT-23X475 flat screen TV


capacitors are most likely to blame here, there are several that most likely are on the power board and are blown if you get them replaced the tv will function normally, the heat can come from the transformer since it is not getting smooth power from the capacitors. it is working very hard to dump the spikes in the electricity. I ups backup power supply rated for the tv's wattage will help smooth power and protect your investment.

Monitor goes black


Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!
