Monitor power problem

My philips 200S tft is not very old, the power light goes off and the screen goes blank the monitor then comes back on after a second or two, with the philips screen then your work. it happens completely random some times loads of times a day sometimes not at all. this is now a brand new pc and it still does it. im running the resolution at 1600x1200 and have a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 285 GFX card in the new pc so i know its not a PC issue. ???? ive run out of ideas?

It sounds like an internal issue, more likely the LOPT components are overheating, possibily due to dust collection causing temporary shorts, or an arcing capacitor. The randomness is due to weather conditions, high humidity more likely to monitor wil shut down, the dryer the weather the moisture in the dust would have evaporated, resulting in nothing happening, and a working monitor. I suggest trying this first:- Unplug the monitor from the outlet, and the computer, open the case, but REMEMBER! the monitor can still pack a punch even when it's unplugged from the outlet, (once the case is open, it is completely safe if you accidently brush against a metal part, but under no circumstances (unless you know what you're doing) remove the rubber cap that's either on the top, bottom, or sides of the back of the screen, doing so can result in a massive jolt of up to 20,000 volts),use a can of compressed air to blow out the dust, making sure you clean right up to the control buttons on the front, screw the case back in place, then try the monitor, if it's still the same, and unless you are a qualified electronics engineer and would like to repair the monitor yourself, I suggest you take it to a repair shop.

Monitor goes blank coming out of power save mode


I found this on the Internet...

"Press the "Input" button on your LCD monitor's front panel repeatedly at three- or four-second intervals until your monitor wakes up. If your monitor is set to an incorrect input mode, it won't receive a video signal. After you reset the monitor to the proper input mode, it will receive the signal and wake up automatically."

Video cards that can handle two monitors at the same time have cables with two plugs on the monitor end.

If your video cable has two plugs on the monitor end, try the other plug.
