Green light on - screen on briefly, then goes black.
Have had this monitor for 10 yrs. I Love it,
bought it through an AOL on line promotion for $99. it was way ahead of my time - now what has happened? Appreciate any guidance.
If replacement is the only option - where is the best price? Thank you in advance. Debi
Re: green light on - screen on briefly, then goes black.
Replacement is probably the only option at this point. It would cost more to fix than it would be worth new. Try going to:
They are usually running cheap specials on monitors.

Hi, This is not always a problem with the monitor. It could also be caused by a faulty display card in your computer. Try plugging your monitor into a working computer to determine where the problem lies.
I believe that you must reset the colors of the screen by the buttons on it or try to set colors by the software that the product came with it if any. There should be a setting to configure the 4 basic colours like red green black etc. Try to adjust green. If nothing helpes go the monitor back to test it by the store you bought it if there is warranty. Hope that helped!
it sounds as if you may have a backlight problem..i have two of them that the wire going to the backlight had burnt off at the bulb..I had to take the lcd screen apart to solder the wire back on the blub.. be carefull the lcd screen and bulb are frigile... ther is 4 lights two on the top and two on the bottom..good luck
I see many monitor with that trouble.
When you turn on comp., you can have a picture on monitor about 10-30 min. and that go in black screen, or If you change resolution again go in black screen.
You must repair monitor or bay another.
Try booting the pc in safe mode (press f8 at startup). It may be possible that the pc is trying to send too high a resolution to the monitor...unlikely though. The symptom you describe usually indicates that the power board or the inverter board in the monitor are defective. If it does the same thing in safe mode, you have 2 options.
1. Replace the power board and inverter board (do the inverter board first.......it's the cheaper one (10-20 dollars). 2. Send the monitor back to the seller for a refund, or get a new monitor.
Sorry I couldn't give you more positive feedback. Hope this helps.
Symptoms of a Bad Video Driver Monitor Resolution issues: screen flickers, screen is
cloudy, screen shows horizontal lines, screen goes black, goes blank,
goes into sleep mode, goes into power mode, size magnifies or reduces,
video is jittery, fonts change, screensaver will not appear, cannot
extend display on dual monitors.
Is this monitor and LCD flat Panel? If so this is due to a bad power supply, an inverter board going bad or LCD backlight bulb blown. When the backlight goes bad it gets just enough power to start up, but when it is on for a long period of time it goes black because the bulb is not stable enough to hold the charge because it is going bad. These bulbs can be changed, but they also can be costly!
