For the past 2 years, my monitor (Hitachi CML174SXW B) will just randomly goes black, but the green light is still on, and the only way I can get a picture to come back is to turn the monitor off, then back on.
When I first turn the monitor on in the morning, it comes on then after a few seconds it goes black, I will have to turn it off then on several times to get it to stay on, and several times throughout the day it will just go black and I will have to turn it off then on to get a picture. This is EXTREMELY frustrating. Other than that its a great monitor. I would appreciate any help for this problem.

hi, extremely common problem for dell 17 in monitors. the capacitors and transistors on the power board internally have gone bad. to get repaired, it may cost 40-50 at a shop. i have repaired these in the past and they always come out well for at least 3 more years. may want to find another monitor though. if you would like steps on how to repair, let me know and i will find my old repair threads to give to you.
This happened to me and I was able to fix it. I cracked it opened and found a bad capacitor, bought a replacement at Radio Shack and I'm back in business. Actually using it right now to post this.
If U can see the cursor then your monitor is fine, the culprit is your graphics card. It could be a virus, or a driver error. Try installing the drivers and check for viruses, if no help then Your graphic card is the most likely fault
The green light only lets you know there is a valid video signal reaching the monitor. If the green light was not "on" your problems would possibly be within the pc itself. Something is not holding the circuit for the backlight "on" thus going black. Suggestions are:
1. Take it to get it repaired (if not under warranty) Hyundai carries a 3 yr warranty on this monitor. Website provided.
2. Buy a new monitor
