Here is the troubleshooting guide:
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.

Fdhiscot, I sugguest you visit YOUTUBE for video clips of owners/technicians repairing their units "switch mode power supply/ccfl inverter ballast" boards and then tell me if you think you are capable of doing your own "tear-down" , "inspection" , "repair" to your unit. Pay attention to price, tools, parts that they use to do the work. For $10 or so, you might get another 1 to 3 years use if you make the attempt to DIY your unit. Then reply back here to this post and let me know what you have decided to do. 12fixlouie

Monitor come on for a few seconds then goes black,green signal light stay on green. can you help


the monitor may be losing the back lite. take a flash light or bright light and shine it at the screen after it goes black. can you see a faint picture? if so the back lite has failed. usually the cost of replacement exceeds the cost of a new monitor but there are a couple of web sites that detail the replacement of the "ccfl" cold cathode flouresecent light.

Monitor not working


Try another monitor on your computer. If you still get a blank screen then its an issue with the computer not having any video coming out of the video card. If you hook up another monitor and you get video then its an issue with the original monitor.

Also try the original monitor on another computer and see if video comes up. If you still don't get video, that would mean the monitor is bad for sure since you would have tried it on two different computers.

Monitor turns on and screen comes up for about 1 second and then turns black. Green power light stays on and green


This will be a fault with the inverter section that powers the ccfl lights usually a transistor or an i.c replaced will cure the problem

Monitor comes on, I can see everything perfect then goes black


"Most" newer monitors will let you know if the are no longer receiving a signal. Sounds like the backlight is burnt out. Try getting a bright (LED works best) flashlight and shining it at the screen at all angles to see if you can see any of what you were doing. If the backlight is on the fritz, either return it on warranty or buy a new one.

Screen not lighting up and staying black.


if the green light is always on that means there is no prob concerning the power and the monitor itself. the problem seems to be coming from your graphic card..
try with another graphic card..

OR
you might not configure the screen resolution to the appropriate level..
can you run your pc correctly in safe mode??
