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 VIEWSONIC 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.

Screen goes black just after windows logo on a E-SYSTEM sorrento 1.


Your monitor display settings are no longer set (synced) with the upgrade. Boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot and lower the screen resolution.

You will have to check Display drivers in Device Manager, and make sure they are loaded.

The monitor keep going to black when its still on.


Hello,

It is the picture picture board on your monitor that is malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on, but black screen, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Hello,

The picture board of your monitor has developed fault. That is why the screen goes black.

The best thing for you to do is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity, because the fault is not something you can fix on your own in other not to complicate issues.

The repairer will help replace the faulty picture board and your monitor is back and better.

Gateway FPD1750 monitor's keep go black screen, no picture at al


tgordon60, If you know how those NEW "CURLIE-Q" energy efficient CFL light bulbs produce WHITE LIGHT, then you will know what makes an LCD display panel produce all the pretty colors and the WHITE BACKGROUND of the FIXYA web page!!! Only difference is that your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" are thinner and straight, and hung on rear of LCD glass panel and have a DC to AC electronic ballast called an "INVERTER" circuit to produce 600 to 1000vac to light them up. Get to my FIXYA profile and read my responses to other BLACK screen lcd owners to learn about all your options for repair. Follow any of the links to other web pages you find there. Your monitor not any different than ACER, DELL, VIEWSONIC, BENQ, SONY, AOC!!!!! 12fixlouie aka louie12fix

My monitor keeps going to a black screen a coulpe of seconds after being turned on


Video (picture) must be constantly entering a monitor for a monitor to continue to display a picture after it self tests (goes on for a second or, two) Your monitor is fine; check it using another known good computer.

Monitor keep going to black screen while viewing.


Disable the Screen Saver in the Display Properties from Control Panel of your Computer.

A Black ScreenSaver is active in your Display Settings. Change it to "NONE" and your problem will be solved.
