Recently, my Dell flat-panel monitor has been turning off on its own (green power light does not light on). I'll push the power button back on and the screen will come back on for a split second and then turn right back off. On some tries, it doesn't even come back on.
I tried plugging the monitor power cord into another outlet and I am still having the same issues. I do not have an extra monitor to test to see if the problems occurs with another monitor.
I don't know if the monitor is overheating, if that's even possible? Or if it just old and needs replacing. The monitor is probably ~5 years old. Right now, I've left the computer shut off for a few hours, and I haven't had this problem recur tonight, yet.
I don't see a model # on the screen but if anyone needs additional information I can gladly try to provide.
Thanks in advance~
