    I have the same Sony monitor and the same thing happened but my screen isn't gray it goes black. If I hit the green power button to turn it off... when i turn it on it's stays in for about 5 seconds then goes black again. I am now using my TV as a monitor and it works fine so it's definitely the Sony monitor that has the issue. I've seen a few other troubleshooting blogs that mention the inverter board but when I call Sony parts they have no clue what i'm talking about. Has anyone had this same problem that has resolved it???

    I have a similar issue with my Gateway LCD monitor, after only 14 months use, It just goes grey with the blue power light on, and regardless of where I plug it into, same results. Called Gateway support, and they also eluded to me buying another one , would not even provided service options. This model does not use the standard power cord, so to rule out the power cord, I would have to purchase one from them. If anyone has stumbled into a solution, the help will be much appreciated.

Every now and then I inadvertently push a button on the lower right side of the monitor that causes the display to go blank as if it has stopped receiving a signal from the computer. Unfortunately I can not recall what the settings or buttons are that are involved, but I suspect it is the top or bottom button. Each time it happens I rediscover which button it is using trial and error. Eventually I push a button several times to 'scroll' through what I *think* are display input options. The normal desktop appears with one of the options. I think the button might be the one that includes the PIP option on the menu.

Try to start in safe mode and check if you can change some of the video settings (resolution, refresh rate, etc). Maybe one of these settings is such that the monitor cannot handle properly. To get into Safe Mode, press F8 as soon as you see the Gateway logo on the screen while booting the PC.

hi the cause is screen back light not working properly. you need to remove the back cover of the monitor to access the internal part of the monitor. then look for the connector of the cold cathode fluorescent tube back light going to the power inverter board of the back light you will noticed a dry joints which cause a loose connection that is why you hear a sound that cause of spark. you need to re soldered the connector or replaced if totally burned.

Recently when I boot up my computer I get the monitor to display an image for about 2 seconds and then it goes to a black screen. if I unplug the monitor from the back of the computer and plug it back in,...

The capacitors for the power source are failing. This causes a short burst of power to get to the lamps, but then they cannot hold a charge to continuously power the lamps. You will have to replace the monitor. I suggest checking your warranty status and replacing the monitor.

The l226wtq goes black

Try shining a flashlight on the screen, or without the flashlight, try to see if you can distinguish anything on the screen at all, if you do, the backlight is dead, or the monitor has an internal most likely unfixable problem.
