Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Flashes picture, then shuts off, over and over again

\015 I have a 15" SVA LCD Flat Screen Monitor that will turn on and flash a picture on the screen and then it shuts off. It does this over and over again. Is there a fix for this problem?\015

Answers :

I had this problem a year ago and it was a faulty connection inside the monitor.
They replaced the monitor as it was still under warranty.
