The monitor shows the image for 2-3secs then turns black

What you're experiencing is a blown inverter. This is the part of the monitor that directly controls the backlighting. The fact that the light comes on at all shows that the lights themselves work.

Finding a specific inverter can be a pain, but I've found that eBay* is your friend in these cases. I stick with "Buy it Now" and "Top Sellers" with 94-98% approval and at least 1500 transactions completed. Read the descriptions CAREFULLY and know what you're getting. Also be sure you know their return or exchange policy...almost all sellers I've seen will not accept returns, but most will accept exchanges in case of dead-on-arrival.

I deal with blown inverters on laptops all the time. Working on a G4 Titanium DVI (A1025) now with that exact problem. Found the guide right here on iFixit. I'd never worked on a Mac laptop before, so I wanted to be sure to do it right...I need not have feared, as it's easier than any other laptop inverter I've ever replaced. (The same is NOT true for most of them, apparently!)

I didn't find any manuals here for replacing inverters on LCD monitors, but I might do a couple if I get a chance. While the functional part is the same, the make, model, and procedure for doing it is a bit different for almost every monitor out there. Just Google (or Bing or Yahoo or *search engine here*) it and you'll probably find one.

Edit:

I checked out eBay once I found the correct model number (931BW). There are several listings for a replacement power board. This is where the inverter is located on your monitor (as Shawn pointed out). The prices seem reasonable (the first 2 listed were $23), so it shouldn't be a problem to get it replaced, once you can get it open.

Unfortunately, I had less luck with the service manual. I found a couple that claimed to have it, but one wanted registration (didn't really want to do that) and another wanted money, but I didn't see how much. Wish I could help more on that part.

*Update:

Since I wrote this, Amazon (among other places) have started offering products from third-party sellers/resellers and are fine alternatives to eBay. However, the same cautions apply. Know who you're buying from. Do your due diligence. I'm not here to promote any one source, I simply provided my own experience as a starting point. Good luck!

Second Monitor Keeps Flickering, Flashing or Going Black Randomly (Fix)

We have had an issue with one of our computers’ second monitor that keeps flickering and flashing randomly. To be precise, it goes black entirely and comes back on again repetitively (as if it goes to sleep and immediately wake up again) while the primary monitor works just fine. After trying all possible solutions, including switching to other monitors, fortunately, the issue is solved. Here’s how to fix the problem.

Though the solution we are about to share works for us, we certainly can’t guarantee that it will work for everyone else. The monitor flickering problem is very broad. Solutions are everywhere but usually only a few actually works, because it all depends on your symptoms and the actual cause of the problem. You just have to search for the solutions that have the symptoms closest to your problem and try each one of them.

Symptom: Second monitor keeps flashing randomly

In our case, the primary monitor is a gaming 144hz monitor while the second monitor is an ordinary one that only has 60hz screen refresh rate. Whenever we use Chrome (or other active programs) on the primary monitor, anything else open on the other monitor would cause the second monitor to flash and flicker (as in going total black and then immediately showing pictures again) randomly every few seconds.

At first we thought it was due to driver issue or loose cable. We tried to update the monitor driver (which is something you should try first regardless if it works), checking and replacing the HDMI cable (or displayport), trying different resolutions, but to no avail. So, we went on to try the settings in the Nvidia Control Panel and found the solution.

How to fix second monitor keeps flashing and flickering issue

Method 1: Select and Rearrange displays in Nvidia Control Panel

Open Nvidia Control Panel from the start menu, or by right-clicking the Nvidia Settings icon from the notification icons area in the taskbar. Then, select Nvidia Control Panel.

Nvidia Control Panel to fix second monitor flickering

In the control panel, expand Display and select Set up multiple displays. Select and enable the displays you want to use. Then, drag the icons (usually appear as 1 and 2 where 1 is your primary monitor and 2 represents your second monitor) to whichever direction you want. For example, in the screenshot below, my second monitor will be on the left of my primary monitor. Then, click on Apply. The random flickering or flashing should stop now.

Second Monitor Keeps Flickering Flashing Going Black

It doesn’t matter if you have configured this before in the default Windows settings, the point is to configure this once again in the Nvidia Control Panel and it somehow solved the flashing issue for us.

Method 2: Adjust desktop color settings option in Nvidia Control Panel

This is another method you can try to fix the flickering and flashing problem if your monitor is connected using HDMI but not via DisplayPort (you can’t see the option if you use displayport).

In Nvidia Control Panel, under Display, go to Adjust desktop color settings. Select the your primary monitor and at the bottom under the “Content type reported to the display” option, select Desktop programs. At the top, select your second monitor and also change the option to “Desktop programs” as well. Click on Apply. Restart your PC and see if the flashing issue is fixed.

Second Monitor Keeps going to sleep turning off cutting out

Other recommended solutions to fix second monitor flickering and flashing issue:

Needless to say, you need always make sure both your video driver and monitor driver are up to date. If you are using an Nvidia graphic card and you cannot find Nvidia Control Panel in your Windows, download and install your graphic driver again from Nvidia.com.

Check the screen refresh rate setting of the second monitor and see if it is set correctly. Right-click on your desktop > Select Display settings > Advanced display settings > Display adapter properties for Display 2 > Monitor tab > Screen refresh rate. If you are using a 60hz monitor, try to change the refresh rate to 60hz if it’s otherwise. Also, try to change it to 59hz and see if it works.

If your monitor offers other types of input port, try using another type of input port. For example, if you are using HDMI right now, try using DisplayPort or DVI if your monitor has the port.

Hopefully this will help you solve your second monitor flickering and flashing issue. If you have other solutions you may want to share with others, let us know in the comment section below.

How to REALLY Fix Screen Flickering or Flashing on Windows 10

[Solved] Monitor Randomly Goes Black | 2021 Tips

Your monitor randomly goes black while the power light is on? You’re not alone! Many users are reporting the same issue. But the good news is that you can fix it. Here are 4 solutions to try.

Try these fixes:

You may not have to try them all. Just work your way down the list until you find the one that does the trick for you.

  1. Check your video cable
  2. Check your computer power settings
  3. Update your graphics driver
  4. Factory reset your monitor

Fix 1: Check your video cable and video ports

In most cases, monitor issues are caused by a poor connection between the monitor and PC. To see if that’s the problem for you, you should check your video cable and video ports. Here is how:

1) Turn off your computer.

2) Unplug the video cable that connects your monitor to your computer.

3) Check the port connectors on your computer and your monitor.

(If any connector on your device is bent or damaged, you’ll need to take the device to a repair shop.)

4) Check to see if your video cable is damaged. If the video cable is fine, reconnect your computer to your monitor.

Or, if you have another video cable available, try connecting the two devices using the new cable. For example, if you’re using an HDMI cable now, try replacing it with a VGA cable.

If your monitor still can’t work correctly, check fix 2, below.

Fix 2: Check your computer power settings

A simple problem with the power settings might also cause your monitor to black off randomly. So, you should verify that Energy Saving mode or a screen saver is not enabled on your device. Follow the instructions below:

If you’re on Windows 7 or 8…

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key. Then, type power option and select Power Options.

2) Make sure the power plan is not set to Power Saver.

What are the differences between these modes?
Balanced
: Balanced automatically adjust your CPU’s speed according to your computer’s need.
Power Saver: Power Saver will slow down your computer to save power all the time. It will also lower your screen brightness, among other similar settings.
High Performance: High Performance mode keeps your PC running at high speeds most of the time. Your computer will generate more heat under this mode.

3) Click Change plan settings.

4) Make sure both Turn off the display and Put the computer to sleep are set to Never.

5) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key. Then, type screensaver and select Turn screen saver on or off.

6) Set the Screen saver to None, and click OK.

7) Restart your computer to test your issue.

If your problem persists, read on and check Fix 3.

If you’re on Windows 10…

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key. Then, type power and select Power & sleep settings.

2) Under Screen and Sleep, make sure the settings are set to Never.

3) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key. Then, type screen saver and select Turn screen saver on or off.

4) Make sure the Screen saver is set to None, then click OK.

5) Restart your computer to see if your monitor works properly now.

If your issue persists, then go ahead with the fix below.

Fix 3: Update your graphics driver

An outdated or faulty graphics driver can also trigger monitor issues like this. To keep your monitor and your graphics chipset working with new operating systems and programs, it’s essential that you have the latest graphics driver.

You can update your graphics driver manually by going to the manufacturer support website, such as Nvidia and AMD, finding the driver corresponding with your specific flavor of Windows version (for example, Windows 32 bit) and installing the driver.

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your graphics driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy. Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it with just 2 clicks:

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

3) Click the Update button next to the display driver to automatically download the correct version of that driver, then you can manually install it (you can do this with the FREE version).

Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system. (This requires thePro version which comes with full support and a 30-day money back guarantee. You’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All.)

The Pro version of Driver Easy comes with full technical support.
If you need assistance, please contact Driver Easy’s support team at [email protected]

Fix 4: Factory reset your monitor

If your monitor constantly turns off, it’s unlikely that the monitor setting is the core problem, but you should still rule out the possibility. Here is how to factory reset your monitor:

This process will vary depending on different types of monitors. If you don’t know how to do it, consult your monitor manual.

1) Press the menu button on your monitor and select Menu.

2) Go to Other Settings, then select Factory Reset.

Check if this fixed your problem. If your monitor still goes black randomly, your issue is very likely caused by a hardware failure. In this case, you’ll need to bring your monitor or your computer to a repair store and seek professional help.

Hopefully, this article helped in resolving your issue. Feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions and suggestions.

How to repair LED LCD LG TV screen flashes then goes black

If you’re working on your computer and your office monitor suddenly goes black, then it can be one of the most frustrating things to figure out. What exactly is causing the monitor to do this, and how do you fix it? Well, those are some of the things that we’re going to look at now.

Although in some cases it is an easy fix to sort this problem out, other times things are a little more complex. However, identifying the main issue at hand is the first thing you need to do in order to sort this problem out. So, let’s look at some reasons why your monitor might go black.

Why does my monitor keep going black for a few seconds?

The main reason that your monitor is going black for a few seconds is that there’s a problem with the cables connecting it to your computer. This is typically the issue if your monitor goes black for only a few seconds, and then comes back on later.

The first thing you’ll want to do is ensure all of your cables are properly inserted into both the back of your monitor, but also the device that it’s connected to (laptop or computer etc).

Make sure that there’s not any damage to the ports on the back of your monitor too, as this can be a common cause of black screens. You’ll also want to check your plug socket and the plug of the monitor, as any damage to this could also be a source of your problem.

After you’ve checked the cables for any damage, in an ideal scenario you’ll also check the monitor with an alternative cable too. If you have another HDMI cable (if that’s what you’re using), then of course you’re going to want to check that with your devices too.

If you have any other ports that you can use on your monitor, then it is worth trying this out as well. It could just be an issue with the ports on your monitor, and it might work if you plug your cable into a different connection port.

However, these aren’t the only things that you’re going to want to check if your screen goes black. There could be something else causing the issue, and here are a few of the other things which may be causing the problem.

Overheated Internals

Although the majority of the time the issue with a monitor is the cables, the next most likely scenario that I’ve found is that you actually have a problem with the monitor itself. It could also be the result of overheated parts in your laptop or computer too, but unfortunately this is difficult to diagnose.

An overheating monitor can be a result of a few things, with the main cause being a lack of ventilation to the components inside. This could be caused by a dust build up or some kind of blockage which isn’t allowing air to flow through the monitor.

So, make sure that you give the monitor a thorough clean before you start it up again. If you give it a few hours to cool down and then restart your computer, it should work as normal.

Graphics Drivers

Another possible problem is an issue with your video card drivers. If you think that this might be an issue on your device, then the best thing for you to do is update them. Here is a good guide on how you can easily update your graphics drivers.

If you’re using Windows 10, then you’ll want to check your display driver. You can do this by going into your device manager and finding it pretty easily.

Although it is pretty unlikely, it could just be that your GPU has run its course and is dying on you. This won’t be the case in a new device, but if you have an especially old laptop or computer connected to the monitor, then it is still a possibility. If this is the case, then you may need to replace your graphics card.

Also check

Another thing that you should check is that you don’t have energy saver mode or night mode enabled on your computer or laptop. Although this shouldn’t cause any problems, there are cases of energy saver not working with the monitor itself, which may cause it to intermittently black out.

If you’ve just installed a software on your device and this issue has started to happen, then try uninstalling this too. There are cases of some bad software being the cause of a monitor blacking out as well. This will only be the cause if you’ve just installed something new onto your computer.

Conclusion

Hopefully you’ve been able to find a simple fix for the issue of your monitor blacking out. Typically it is an issue with the cables attached to the device, but unfortunately this isn’t always the case and it may be more serious than this.

Any of the cables could be at fault here, but it may be a problem with your power supply or the power button on your monitor. If this is the case, then you’ll need to get this fixed before you’re going to use your monitor again.

If you have another monitor available, then it’s a good idea to check the same device with this too. Setting things up with a different external monitor will easily allow you to diagnose the problem. But if not, it might be time to get a new monitor for your home.
