Microtek 997M monitor doesn't stay on...

I have a 19" Microtek 997M monitor that only stays on for a second or two then goes to a black screen.
If I turn the power off and back on the screen turns on a gain for a second or two and turns off again. At the same time the power on light continues to stay on.
I saw the other remedies to fix this problem but want to know if it will also work for the Microtek as there are 6 capacitors (pairs of two) next to the transformer.
I can't tell what size twwo of them are as there is only jibberish stamped on the can.
Any suggestions? The monitor light shows green meaning it is on and ready.
I boot up my mac mini, the "Chang" sound is heard, the light on the monitor turns yellow, then in 2-3 seconds a bright green light and then no light is shown. not another light.
1. checked power cord, O.K.
2. checked the signal cable connection, O.K.
3. adjusted brightness and contrast controls..but the monitor is black screen, no use there.
4. don't have a power saving mode?

    I have exactly the same problem. Tried the monitor on another computer and same thing. If you power off the monitor on it's own switch and turn the power back on it flashes up the desktop image so the computer has started successfully.

The inverter is the most common item to fail on a LCd monitor. Capacitors usally fail the most. Are the tops of any of them popped up. If you had any shorted transistors the fuse would probably be blown. Usally labeled F1. I would replace all the capacitors first and go from there. Capacitors are cheap.

My MICROTEK 997M monitor would not stay on. Opened it up and found two capacitors bulged on top from heat located next to the transformer. Bought them at $050 ea. and changed the two caps marked (470uf 25volts 105deg C) The monitor is now working perfectly. The other three in there but not changed are as follows: (two caps 1200uf 10volt 105deg C) one cap 330uf 25volt 105deg C) THANKS FixYa !!!! and members posting.

Screen goes black after 2 seconds


This could be one of two problems, the light in your monitor has a loose cable, or the light is dying. I have seen cold cathode lights that are about 10-15$ to buy and many instructions on putting them in yourself.

Solution 2, your cable is loose on the back of the monitor. Make sure you have the screws tightened on either side of the vga or dvi cable, both on the back of your monitor and on the back of your computer or laptop.

I have connected my microtek lcd monitor to my dell laptop computer. the monitor is plugged into electric outlet. the green light on the front of the monitor blinks. and i get a report of "no signal" but...


Have you tried pluging in the monitor in to the laptop before even starting the computer or Putting the computer in to "Stand by" then pluging in the monitor and then bringing the laptop out of "Stand by" or yet when you do have the computer on with the monitor pluged in, try "Fn" and a button hat has like two screens on it with a small bar in between them? All these should work.

You need to try another monitor, any type. If you find another monitor does functions return the 19" monitor. Most monitors come with a 1 year warranty.
