Hi

Has anyone had any experiences with their monitors display just going black? I have had a 22" screen Yuraku monitor, for over 4 years now and have never had a moments trouble with it.. However, for the last few days, my screen has been going black. There does not appear to be any problem with my computer, just the monitor losing it's display every minute or so! When I keep ressing the on/off button, on the front of the monitor, I get the display working okay again. But, after a minute or so, the same thing keeps happening again.

 

I spoke to a friend and he said that he had heard this problem described as a 'capacitor' malfunction, however, I haven't got a clue what a capacitor is. :blush: Can anybody help me, and tell me if the monitor is capable of being repaired. if so, what the likely cost would be?

 

Best

Does it do it when you change out the video cable?

 

a capacitor is a electronic  device which stores energy.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor

 

What your describing  is a issue with a black light inside the monitor. The back light is a part that display the screen (short answer) What your friend has suggest is when a capacitor is not storing electric on the power board. it can lead to failing or "pop" making the capacitors bad. That might be the problem.

 

There isn't a way to repair LCD or CRT monitors to end users because of high voltage inside of the monitor. If its under  warranty I would start a support ticket with the manufacturer about getting it repaired. Since you have state lifespan of the monitor. I would suggest buying a new LCD monitor. The typical lifespan for a LCD is  3-5 years, in your case they can  last for several years.
