Having problems with your KDS Computer Monitors ?

I have a older kds lcd monitor that goes black less than 1 min after turning on, the power light stays on, the monitor will come back on if you repower the monitor then goes back off in 3 or 4 seconds. Is there a easy fix or should I replace the monitor ?


Answers :

If you look closely can you see a very dark image on the screen? your problem is usually the result of the backlight on its way out, these are very hard to replace so you will need to take it to a profesional, in most cases it is cheeper to buy a new screen.
