Question about E-Machines eMachines Monitor E15T4
Basically, My monitor will stay on for the most part, but when i try to change the brightness or even open up the monitor menu, the monitor just turns off. I have to unplug it and wait a few seconds, then plug it back in and it will turn on again. It also shuts off whenver i put the computer to sleep
If you have another monitor at home, try the other monitor. If not, take your computer to a friends house and try their monitor. I have a similar problem with my Compaq Presario SR1120NX. It turns on fine, then after a while screen saver kicks in, turns off monitor. Monitor status light turns amber. I move the mouse and it never turns back on. Have to hold power button down, then turn back on to get video back. Any suggestions?

It sounds like the power supply board on your monitor is failing. If it's still under warranty you might be able to get a replacement from the manufacturer - if not, you might be able to have it repaired at a computer or TV repair shop.

Your power/inverter board is in need of an overhaul.
The capacitors are failing and possibly a transistor.
If the screen showed any redness or pink whebn it was working, Then there is a slight chance that one or more of the 4 lightbulbs in the screen was going bad and finally went.
If you take it apart and send me a picture, I may be able to tell by looking at it.
I repair these boards on ebay

I had the same problem with my eMachine t3418. Site advisor Micromend suggested changing the power supply to more wattage. Very much recommend doing that. I did but it didn't fix the problem. Micromend also advised trying a video card. I bought a cheap vid card and installed it. It worked. Apparently MY problem was in the motherboard and the vid card worked around that. Much cheaper than replacing the computer. I'm NOT a tech. Just sharing my experience with what worked for me. I you have a laptop or a friend does, hook your monitor to it to test that it's okay first though.

Your problem may be due to the sleep button in your keyboard may got struct into when you cleaned your keyboard.
Try to resolve the struct in the keys, if any.
Restart your system and if still your problem persists, then remove your keyboard and restart your computer and try with some other keyboard if possible. Once if you find out that the problem is with your keyboard, then replace the keyboard / service the existing one.'
I hope this is helpful to you. Please provide your ratings.
