This kind of symptoms indicated that your monitor has a busted bulb already. When you first turn on the unit, it will power up but will automatically shuts off the inverter board once there's a busted bulb to avoid overload to this board. The unit must take apart and check the bulb. It can't be tested by the multimeter but has a physical indication of fault like blackened end.
Another caused is the faulty inverter board itself. Most common faulty parts are the high voltage transformers, driver transistor, open fusible resistor, leaky/dried electrolytic capacitor. You must know how to test this parts if you are going to DIY.
If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't troubleshoot the unit yourself, I would advice you to look for a qualified technician to isolate the problem.
Also check if the unit is still under warranty period, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free. Don't attempt to open the back cover, it will void the warranty.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

I turn on my computer and the monitor flashes on then goes black. If I turn the power to it off and then back on it will flash a pictues and then go black again.

You need to try another monitor to see if the problem is with the monitor itself or the video card in the computer. If the monitor is bad I suggest you just buy a new or used one. It cost more to repair them than to buy another one.

L1932TQ monitor flashes on, then blacks out

I would try connecting it to another computer or Laptop if you can to see if the problem is the same. You might also try disconnecting it from you computer and turning it on, it should “banner”(show a logo and or a no signal message). If it behaves the same way just a quick flash…. Sounds like its toast.

Monitor flashes on then goes black.

I think you have the display shut off. the button on the bottom left will shut screen off. It will come on for a few seconds if you touch the screen, but will shut off again. just push the display button again and it should stay on.
