Question about Philips 170B4MG 17" LCD Monitor
I have a Philips 170B LCD monitor.
When I switch the monitor on, I shortly get the message NO VIDEO SIGNAL. This message is on for about 1 second.
The monitor goes black, but the power led stays green.
When I shine with on the monitor with a flashlight, I can see what should be on the screen.
What can it be? The backlight?
The problem is with the Backlight inverter. For some reason the overcurrent trips after a few seconds. I got around it by hacking the inverter to prevent the overcurrent from tripping, but if you aren't familiar with electronics, I can only suggest a new screen.

It is not the videocard. ;-)
Tried the monitor on different computers.
And even when it's not connected to a computer, he should give image like "Check cable".
Even that appairs for about a split second.

On another question related to LCD monitors turning on and off within a few seconds, people suggested that aged/burnt out capacitors on the powerboard inside the monitor needed replacing. A relatively easy job for any technician to do.

Find the manufature of the video card, use the old monitor and go to the video card manufacture and download the video driver.
