    I have the same problem. Initially, it started by just taking a VERY long time to come on and now nothing. After several hours, the amber light will come on, but not the green power light.

    Any ideas

    I have exactly the same problem, my monitor power button seems to be useless, it will not come on until about 40 minutes to 1 hour after i have turned on the tower. I connected another monitor and all else works fine. Seems like a really slow charging capacitor? Where can I get parts to fix this one.

This is a common problem across many monitors, unfortunately. The problem stems from one of two things, typically.

Itis either the Power Inverter board (Inverter Mirage Electronics AD-1700Rev:F 200-000-170DTL1 VERSION:A) or a weak or dying backlight.

Ifyour monitor comes on for a few seconds then you can test the backlight byusing the controls to get into the backlight brightnes settings on theOSD and turning it WAY down.

If that doesn't work or if it won't come on at all then it islikely bad capacitors on the Power board mentioned above. If you feeladventurous and know how to solder then you might be able to fix thisyourself. You need to be careful however because you are dealing withhigh voltage in there and capacitors CAN hold a charge long after youhave unplugged the unit. You can read more about this power board aswell as how to replace the bad caps HERE.

Ifthat's not for you then I would recommend taking it to a local TV shopfor them to fix. The parts shouldn't be more than $20, but labor can beexpensive.

The most common problem with LCD monitors is the capacitors that are on the power pack. the pack usually looses or pops as we say 2-6 of them after 3-5 years. its almost a certainty after 5 years. a component repair tech can replace these but unless you can find some one like me who will do it for cheap to save the landfill you most likely will buy a new one.

KDS Computer Monitor loses video one half hour after booting up.

first, how long have you had it. if it has intergrated power supply,(does not have a big square box made onto the power cord) nine time out of ten your power converter/supply is going or is bad. return for a replacement. to the manufactuer not the store. they should replace it free of charge, if their honest. samsung has some models with this same problem.

The white screen tells me that the display cable (inside your monitor) may be unattached or broken.
The color bands if they are vertical or horizontal lines tell me that your display cable needs to be replaced.

So overall replace your display cable. If this doesn't entirely fix the problem your logic board (inside the monitor) needs to be replaced.
