Monitor won't stay on longer than 5 seconds

The monitor is a Gateway FHX2300 monitor. It won't stay on for longer than 5 seconds. I've hooked it up to multiple computers and a laptop. I've tried connecting it with VGA and HDMI cables. I've turned it on when it wasn't connected to a computer and the no signal screen only stays on for about 5 seconds. The normally blue light on the monitor turns orange as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try disconnecting the data cable from the monitor entirely. If you get the message that there is no signal then the problem is with the cable.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks for the advice.

I disconnected the data cable & it still turned off after about 5 seconds. I then connected it with a power cord from another monitor & it still turned off after about 5 seconds.

Given that you have tried multiple computers and inputs, it seems most likely the monitor is broken. All the normal issues are excluded by your checks. Does the menu screen work OK?
