    I can see my content, but for just a second. After switching off and then off I can see my content for another second. It lasts not longer than a second every time...

    My problem started with dim flickering screen for sometime and then it would come on and work fine. Now it is continuing to turn black and stays on only a few second after switching off and on. When it is on it is still dim and flickering. I have already changed the graphic card, but that didn't change it.

    Same problems as described. I have attached to another computer with the same results. If I turn it off and then back on, it will come on very briefly.

    The monitor will stay on for awhile, but will eventually go black and not come back on. (The power is on, but the screen is black.) Have tried it on two different computers with the same result.

I've had a similar problem. I took apart the monitor (it was out of warranty by that time anyway) and found the lamps would not stay on. They'd flash for a split second before remaining unlit. I tried hooking up another LCD monitor's lamp to the Samsung, and even though I knew the other lamps worked fine, they exhibited the same behavior. Looks like something's wrong with the circuitry. The LCD actually does display the desktop on screen correctly. It's just the lamps refusing to stay on.

Start by checking all the connections. Boot to safe mode and see if the problem persists. Check your power saving parameters and see if the monitor turnoff is set too fast. This could be a hardware problem also, especially the monitor or the graphics card.

My AOC screen goes black after about a few seconds after booting.


The picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer or service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Was pink at bottom now a black screen. powers on for a second or two then black screen. green power light is on.

Check whether the connector has been properly connected to the computer. Also try to boot the system with safe mode option and you are geeting display, then install the appropriate display drivers will solve your problem.

Also check the DPI setting configured in dispaly properties.

Monitor flashes on then goes black.

I think you have the display shut off. the button on the bottom left will shut screen off. It will come on for a few seconds if you touch the screen, but will shut off again. just push the display button again and it should stay on.

Monitor black screen

Your first step in troubleshooting this problem is to plug in another monitor to your computer. If you are having the same problem it is related to your computer. If the second monitor works fine then your original monitor is shot.

Black screen

How old is the computer? Make sure that the power light comes onto the monitor when you plug it in, should be orange and then turn green when video card syncs with it when PC is turned on. If you are getting black screen when PC is powered on:
1. Bad video card
2. Bad video cable
3. Bad monitor
1Solution: Try using a different monitor attached to this same PC and see if it works. If it does, then its the monitor, its cable, or its power supply. If it doesn't work, then its the video card or the video cable coming from monitor.

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.
