Does it the same with another PC?
Most common failure in the LCD monitor is ude to bad DC filter caps, so that will be the first place to look.
Please read below first so you can decide if you will want to DIY repair.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, 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 GATEWAY monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Why does it turn from blue to black after 10 sec.?


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced.

Monitor goes black after about 7 to 10 seconds. I can turn power off and then back on and it will be ok for about 10 seconds before it goes black again.


Check whether the cable from the system to the screen is connected properly and there is not loose contact. Also take the system into BIOS and check whether the same issue is happening in the BIOS screen.Try a factory reset on the screen by pressing the OSD button on the screen.
Switchoff the screen and disconnect all teh cables including the powe cable and press and hold the power button for around 40 sec and now reconnect the cables and try to power up the screen

Screen black. polaroid tv 32". have sound TV/DVD Combo TDA-03211C


sounds like inverter board. What it sounds like is happing is your LCD is working ut the backligkt board that allows you to see is kicking off. (as you still have sound) Which could be the (most likely) inverter board, or the power supply board. You can take apart and check for voltage at your power supply. The power supply has a pigtail with large white wires and a connector. Power up with the center back cover off and check your voltage at the white connector on the power supply before and after the screen gos out. If there is no large voltage loss it is your inverter board.

You can used boards on e-bay or
