It could be your monitor driver card that is bad.
Before you go buy a new monitor, do a quick test on
connecting the monitor to a laptop or portable computer if you have one,
or if you can, get a friend that has one a laptop and use the monitor
signal cable that is already there, and connect it into the
temporary or borrowed computer to see if you get a picture.
Your borrowed computer will need to know that your attaching
and external monitor, so that will need to be done to let the
new computer being used, to know that it is being attached.
If you get a picture, its your old computer driver card.
If it still stays blank, or no picture, then your 5 year old monitor is bad.
Also, but unlikely, it could be the monitor signal cable that
is bad, in that case it will not work on either application.
You could substitute the cable to make sure its not the cable also
for a quick check, on both applications.

Why does the video dissapear 2 seconds after power up on my Westinghouse 32in w/dvd?

It sounds more like a backlight tube or inverter board. Five years is about the maximum lifespan of these devices. That's the reason why new set are LED backlit instead of fluorescent.

My monitor Westinghouse Mod# LCM-19v5


The most common thing that causes no power or a blinking power light and no picture is a failure of the power supply board. The board can be repaired and the monitor will be as good as new. To repair the board you just need to replace a few parts called capacitors. Here is a link to repair information on the Westinghouse LCM-19V5

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

It's not detecting the computer, Have you tried removing and reconnecting the vga cable usually has a blue tip on it with two screw looking apparatuses that twist.
try that first, second trouble is to check the video card.

L2046NV Monitor Does Not Display, but Another Monitor Will.

The problem is with the Westinghouse monitor. The video card inside the monitor is most likely faulty. There are 2 cards inside, 1 is the power supply and the other video. The power cards are typically OK if you are getting a green power indicator. The video card is most likely the culprit and will need to be replaced. If you open the case, BEWARE the capacitors, make sure you drain them before poking around.

I have a 5-year old Sony 19-LCD monitor that stopped working. The little power-on light does not come on, and their is no picture, but I do hear a faint buzzing from the back. Sounds like?

smyko, Sounds like a tired out old "switch-mode-power-supply"/ "inverter CCFL power-supply!!! May require unit to be REFURBISHED with upgraded power suppllies and if the LCD screen had been displaying an increasingly dimmer screen, it may also need new "cold cathode-fluorescent lamps" installed. A technician who knows all about LCD monitors and their backlight "ELECTRONIC BALLAST" circuits will need to evaluate it. Check with sony and find out if you can do a "cash+old unit swapout for a factory rebuilt (refurb) same model type. Before you do any of that have a look at youtube for longer video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" just FYI. You will then know and understand what is on the "OTHER SIDE" of what you been looking at for 5yrs!!! Yes, they are trying to experiment with WHITE led arrays that won"t fail for 10 years. Remember lcd Panels last 8 - 12 yrs. Hope this helps. Bye for now. 12fixlouie

Westinghouse monitor lcm 17v8 will not power on it just sits there and blinks

mufdvr6942, the "switch-mode-power-supply" is in shutdown. Have a technician evaluate (inspect) it. Do that if monitor is less than 4yrs old.
Also visit youtube and search and view longer (8-12min) vid clips of LCD monitor disassembly or LCD repair FYI 12fixlouie
