Try to reset it
Scroll through the menu options by using the up and down arrow buttons located just under the "Menu" button. Scroll down to the "Setup" icon, which looks like a big cog. Press the "Auto/Set" button to access the Setup menu.Scroll, using the down arrow, to "Factory Reset." This setting is located at the bottom of the Setup menu.Press the "Menu" button on the right side of the monitor. This will bring up the On Screen Display. If nothing happens when the "Menu" button is pressed, press and hold it for several seconds to unlock the On Screen Display.Press the "Auto/Set" button to choose "Factory Reset" and then press the down arrow to reset the monitor.
Most televisions and monitors have a menu button next to the power, volume, and channel buttons on the face, top, or side of the set. It can be a pain but you can usually press the menu button to bring the menu up and then select and change settings by pressing menu again to choose a setting and using the channel and/or volume up and down buttons to raise or lower the setting. The exact function varies based on the set so you may need to fiddle around a bit. Unfortunately some sets do require the remote to perform some functions.
Hi, I don't think the problem is with your monitor. Your monitor sounds like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The monitor is supposed to turn off if there's no cable attached, which means there's no signal input. When the screen goes black, does the power light stay on and turn orange? or does it go off as well? I would recommend that you lower your screen resolution to 1280x1024 or lower in the Display Properties window, then remove your primary monitor, and connect the monitor to your desktop computer. You should see it light up when connected. The monitor auto-senses when there's a computer attached to the cable and when there's a signal. If it doesn't see a signal, it goes black to save power.
I think the problem is that you need to find which buttons move your selections around, For the most part the Plus and Minus buttons are pretty obvious, but the movement buttons aren't always. The movement buttons allow you to scroll between the different options. There are often 5-6 buttons on a CRT or LCD monitor. Placement varies between companies. Lets get the obvious buttons out of the way. Usually, there is 1 button that clearly says Menu. Sometimes it is on the button, sometimes over. This allows you to access the full monitor menu options. Then there are the plus and minus buttons. These buttons allow you to adjust your settings. With some companies, pressing one of these 2 buttons will allow you to adjust the contrast or brightness without entering the full menu. Some companies, with more interesting montitor technology have a back button, or a degauss button, to remove magnetic damage from the monitor. This extra button(s) is(are) not common and can usually only be found in higher end monitors. Now for the 2 buttons I left out. Most companies will designate these buttons with an up and a down arrow, but not all. You might have to fiddle around with them to find out which one does what, but these buttons are used to navigate the screen between different option sets. Sometimes this is up and down movement, sometimes it is left to right. It depends on the design of the company. I've seen one that had a turnstyle-like menu screen and you navigated left or right to select the option. Once you can find out which button brings you in what direction, it should be easier to manipulate the screen to your perticular wants. I hope this helps
I had the same problem and I went to the first button on the monitor to the left(main menu) then with the button to the right (-) I scrolled down to factory reset. I also did the osd setting and I'm not sure what fixed it, but I havn't had the problem sence.
I have had the same problem. I've just managed to get the monitor working again by VERY QUICKLY navigating through the monitor setup menu to the 'factory reset' option and hitting reset before the screen had a chance to blink off.
The problem I had is that the monitor suddenly goes black, but will come on for five seconds if I switch it off and on with the power button.
In that five seconds, I had to... >Hit the menu button >then hit the '+; button once >then hit the menu button again >then hit the '-' button >then hit the menu button one last time
The above brings up the menu, scrolls up off the top of the list to the last item on the list (Factory Reset), selects Factory Reset, selects 'All settings' and resets the monitor.
I don't know if this is a permanent fix, but it just worked for me and mine has been doing this intermittently for the last week.
Give it a try, it's frustrating and will take a few tries, but it can't hurt.
