Lcd monitors turn on then go black
I have a Viewsonic VG730M monitor that turns on then a few seconds later it goes black and the power on the monitor stays on.

I also have a HP 1740 monitor that turns on then in a few seconds the screen goes black and the power goes off.

Does any one know the problem and if they can be repaired or do they go to the recycle.

Thank You,

I have the same problem but I have a Viewsonic vx1940w and it flickers and has a little buzz then goes black, but the power light says its on. When I push the power button it comes back on for 1-2 seconds and goes black again. Is this a backlight problem or a power issue, and how difficult or expensive would it be to fix?
