    Green light comes on....compaq screen shows.....then goes blank. I can turn it off and on again and the desktop screen will come on but only for a few seconds.

    My screen goes off at random and after I cycle it off/on it is back but sometimes for hours or seconds before it starts doing it again. It happened twice as I was typing this. All connections between the monitor and the cpu are good.

I've noticed with my FP7317, the problem is not the LCD panel going out, but the backlight. I can just barely make out high contrast shapes on the monitor (such as the "Check Video Cable" box). Using a dual-monitor setup, I can get the FP7317 to light up whenever I change it's refresh rate, but that only lasts for about 5 seconds, and it's dark again. Any ideas on how to get the backlight back on?

    If you can't fix it any other way, check outhttp://www.inventgeek.com/Projects/Backl...

    Be careful with the thin glass LCD panel! It cracks very easily (now I know)!

Could be a bad invertor board. Is the monitor still under warranty. Compaq can repair it. They'll come to your house. Compaq and HP are now the same company. http://h40059.www4.hp.com/warranty/delivery/levels.php

Saw this happen on a monitor before, opened it up, found cold solder joints (where the component leads were not soldered very well to the circuit board), fired my solder gun up, resoldered every suspicious looking joint and presto! Been working fine for over a year now. :-)

Monitor come on for a few seconds then goes black,green signal light stay on green. can you help


the monitor may be losing the back lite. take a flash light or bright light and shine it at the screen after it goes black. can you see a faint picture? if so the back lite has failed. usually the cost of replacement exceeds the cost of a new monitor but there are a couple of web sites that detail the replacement of the "ccfl" cold cathode flouresecent light.

The Dell AS 501 monitor display comes and goes off in seconds. If I switch off and on again, the display comes back and goes off again in less than a second. I repeat this as many times the same monitor...


This sounds like the power inverter is failed.. It's what pumps up the power for the light in the monitor.
You could try unplug the sound bar from the back of monitor if you have the sound bar installed. Just a maybe..
To fix the inverter (replace) is usually better to buy newmonitor unless you do it your self.
The defective LCD Backlight inverter will cause the following symptoms:
  • No Display, but Power Indicate light stay on green (Or Blue).
  • Screen flash on and off and the power indicate light stays on green (or Blue).
  • Dim Display

Sharp light turns green thern turns yellow screen goes black


it is going into sleep mode, good luck with this.... i am currently asking how to get my hard drive to quite putting my monitor into sleep mode.

although it hasn't worked for me because my screen stays black, one of the options given to me is to try to start in safe mode and then adjust your settings to "never" on the energy/sleep/hibernate mode

some one else suggested that i remove and reseat the video card

hopefully one of those will work for you

Monitor comes on, I can see everything perfect then goes black


"Most" newer monitors will let you know if the are no longer receiving a signal. Sounds like the backlight is burnt out. Try getting a bright (LED works best) flashlight and shining it at the screen at all angles to see if you can see any of what you were doing. If the backlight is on the fritz, either return it on warranty or buy a new one.
