See article written by sillybit (me) for the Westinghouse 19v5. My 20v5 had bad caps in the power supply - it did the exact same thing as yours. $8 worth of parts from radioshack and an hour or two is all mine needed.

The problem is usually one of two problems: the capacitors, or the inverter.

I have successfully replaced the caps and they were not the problem. Still the same problem after 2 hours of hassle, but a successful repair might I add.

So, the inverter is bad. However, that can also be fixed, so don't go throwing your monitor out the window just yet. The inverter is probably a simpler fix, however harder to track down a working part, and a little more $$$. Not too much more though. It's $5 vs. $15 - $30.

Take Care...I hope this helps

Regards,

Dave

Seems you have a backlight problem. The tubes oly last for about 30,000 hrs. The inverter and tubes should be replaced at the same time.


Take care

I have a gateway dx4200-09 and when I boot up the screen goes black a few seconds after we turn it on and can't do much without visual have to constantly turn on and off monitor for brief glimpses


Either the Monitor or Video Card is going bad. Since it comes back on by turning the monitor off and on, I suspect it's the monitor.

If you have another monitor, plug it in and see if it works. If so, the problem was the monitor.

If you have another computer, plug the monitor into it and see if it works, if so, the problem was the video card.

This is a common problem with monitors when changing resolution. What probably happened is you may have tried to change the resolution, or an application changed the resolution, to an incompatible resolution.

For example, if you have a tiny little screen it can't display that huge resolution that a 32 inch monitor has. So, your monitor is stuck in that wrong resolution.

To fix this problem, you need to boot into Safe Mode. Restart your computer, and as it is booting up tap F8 a bunch of times, and then select Boot into Safe Mode.

When it boots up, right click on the desktop, click Properties (Windows XP) or Screen Resolution (Windows 7). When the window pops up, click Settings (if on Windows XP, if on Windows 7 skip to next step). From this window, change the resolution back to the basic 800 x 600 screen resolution.

Now, reboot your computer normally. You should be able to see the desktop. Now, you can do the same thing that you did in safe mode and turn up your resolution. BUT, when you change it, if the screen goes BLANK again, DO NOT press anything. After 15 seconds it should go back, and you can try a lower resolution.

Hope this helps! Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello,

I believe the power led button is still on while the screen goes black, if yes, it means the picture board of your monitor is bad that is why it appears for a second and goes black after that

Since the power led button is on, It means the picture board on your monitor is faulty that is why it appears for a second and goes black.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer or any service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself in other to complicate issues.

Take care.

Samsung syncmaster 931a... connected to computer


Hi, its unlikely to be the cable. Most likely cause of this is a faulty inverter board. If you are lucky it will only be 1 or 2 blown capacitors which are easily identifiable and replaceable once you have got inside it. it could however, be almost any of the components on the inverter board or even a failed backlight but this will require further testing and a knowledge of LCD monitor workings.
