The power cord isn't the only path the monitor needs. The connection between the system and the display can have problems.

With the power off: I would at least pull the signal cable and re-plug it several times to see if the problem leaves.

If it still shuts down, (power off again) open the system box, touch any part of the unpainted chassis metal to discharge any static buildup you might have; locate the video card (if it isn't an on-board chip), remove any screw holding the card in and rock the card in its slot to wipe the contacts, press back into the slot, replace the screw removed and try again.

Since the problem could also be caused by a dead backlight or the power supply for it, try to view at various angles to see if there is anything discernable on the screen.
If you can identify any content, then it is the backlight or supply.

Depending on your skill and the construction of the monitor, replacing the fluorscent backlight is a possible home fix.
If the high voltage power supply has failed, this is an item for a tech.

Monitor shuts off after approx 2 min when i start. i turn monitor switch off and turn on again and stays on approx 2 min and shuts off again


Go to control panel > Power options and check the power settings there. Are the settings for "Turn off monitor" set to 2 minutes? Increase the time and see if there is any changes.
If the above does not solve it, it's quite likely that your monitor's power supply is giving problems. Turn it in for warranty/repair.

Can you tell me why my monitior shuts off when I leave the computer on. This has happened numerous times


Simple, your monitor power is set to turn off automatically at the particular time (maybe 5 mins, 10 mins, 1 hour etc...) You can reset this by following the steps below: For XP)- 1. Right Click on the Desktop - Properties - Screen Saver - Power - Turn off monitor and set it to Never. More or less similar with Vista and Windows 7, Good luck.

Fan quitting on unit


Maybe the room is dry enough so the humidity sensor is turning it off?

If not, maybe the thermisensor(fuse) on the fan motor is failing?

Screen goes black after 30 mins of working.


There are a few things you need to check here.
1. It could be that your computer power management is set to turn your monitor and harddrive off after 30 to 45 min.

If the computer is however working for 30 to 45 min while you doing stuff and it shuts off, the there is an internal problem "Hardware"

I would suggest you check to see if the power management is set to turn off monitor 30 min and harddrive after 45 min. IF that is not so, then we go on to the next test.

It could possibly be your processor fan is not working so once your processor gets over heated it shuts off the computer.

Turn off the computer, remove the case "this is only if you know what you are doing" with the case off, power on the computer and see if the processor fan is working.

You can get back to me and I can walk you through it.

Hope thiss help.

If you have soldering iron and can place an order at DigiKey.com (and are willing to get your hands down on this), this is a rather easy fix with some direction. You basically will be replacing some failing capacitors inside the unit.
