Repair or replace?? i too have this problem its on a xerox XA7 19"...its just won't stay on for more than a couple of seconds although a very faint ghost image is visible if you look at it from a


Answers :

Try your monitor on another computer, just to make sure it's the monitor and not a video adapter problem in the computer. It may be possible to fix it if you can find a reliable computer or TV service shop nearby. However, the cost may not be worth it for a 2-year old monitor. Unfortunately, the best solution is probably to buy a new one. : (

My monitor only comes on for a few seconds and then goes very very dark, although the content is still there somewhere.
