This is most probably cause by one or more Faulty Electrolytic Capacitors, I find these are the MOST commonest form of "Fault" in these LCD's TFT's units. I ususally simply replace "On Spec" all High Value Electros, in fact ALL Electro's are suspect and often I just "Shotgun" and replace 'em all. Usually fixes all problems. Always use the best High Temperature Caps. This Cap problem, IMHO is the main cause of an awful lot of problems these Capos cause heaps of headaches and is a good place top start.

The fault could be a faulty inverter board that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or the CCFL lamp is faulty. The CCFL lamp is a mini fluro lamp that provides the back lighting for the screen.

Hello

Probably the monitor. LCD monitors use electrolytic capactors which change value with heat. The power board in yours probably has 6 to 8 caps whic need replacement. Take it to a reputable repair person or check out my websit.

I have a FPD 1830 flat screen monitor not displaying picture

Send the monitor. It's a power supply problem. My 15.4" LCD has the problem, too, whenever I move the monitor down, it powers off, and the menu disappears as well, but I'm going to fix the screen.

LG Flatron L1951S-SN 19 in. Flat Panel picture problem

When the picture disappears again take a flashlight and shine it in the bottom left hand corner where the Windows Start button is located. If you can see a faint image then your back light is failing. If that?s not the case the next step would be to attach another monitor to your computer to see if the problem disappears. If it does that points to the monitor, if it doesn?t then we need to take a look at the computer itself. Let us know what you find out and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

The picture disapears, though the monitors stays on - every few seconds

Check the cable connections on the back of the monitor and the PC it sounds like the connection isn't made properly make sure they are tight.
