I bought my Philips Flat Screen TV Model No: 23PF9945/12 about 6 years ago. For the past 2-3 years, it's been switching itself off intermittently - sometimes 3-4 times a night! It's been in and out of the retailer from which I bought it several times, with no solution. I've just been putting up with it! Each time it happens, the screen goes black and there are no LED lights on - I have to switch it off at the wall plug, then on again - usually, it stays on for a couple of minutes and then goes o

Brightness is off - screen is black - I can force it to work by toggling the stand-by button on my Acer Aspire 5100 - is it the driver or will I need to get an inverter? Screen went black but the computer is still working fine. A few weeks before this the screen had a red tint as it warmed up after turning on - I thought the screen was fine in a few minutes. Now it just goes black. I finally got it to working intermittantly but is is a pain and it's still very dim.

We have an Envision 9410e 19" LCD monitor which is about 4 years old. Recently it has started being very slow to start up, especially in the morning after the system is not in use all night. The screen stays black "too long," then it starts flashing, so that the user only sees the images for an instant, alternating with black. After a couple of minutes, the picture kicks in. Sometimes it will do this later during the day, after a break, but not always. / We tried switching the monitor with the o
