Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Screen is coming on and immediately turns dark -

\015 Screen was flickering yesterday and today it is coming on and immediately turns dark - no image\015

Answers :

I had the same problem. i had it plugged into my mac book pro. i used the "detect displays" and it fixed the problem. switching b/n dvi & vga seems to require the use of detect displays.
I had the same problem with my acer 4315 just 6 moths old from new. at first i had thought that it was the screen. but it turned out to be defective mother board and contact points for the lcd screen. that is going to cost me usd250+ to get fix around here. so its now a door stopper. i am currently using a dell and i swear i wont even go near another acer product! good luck.

For the past week, when my Sceptre LCD monitor goes to sleep after inactivity, it won't restart immediately. The blue LED blinks every second or so; eventually, the screen begins to flash the display, and then a few minutes after that, will finally turn on. Sometimes the whole process takes five minutes, sometimes an hour. How can I fix this problem? (I can't find the documentation to say exactly what model this is; if that's important, I can look again.)
