  1. its a bit of a strange problem

    my monitor takes about 30 turns to switch on.

    basically the screen will come on and then switch itself off after a second or two. the green light on the power remains - so i have to switch it off and switch it back on again.

    the interesting thing is that in that one/two second the screen appears very dull and no brightness. you can tell its working again by the image on the screen being bright.

    is it that the monitor's shelf life is over or is there something more?

    i did update the drivers but uninstalling them hasnt helped.

    its a belinea 19 25 s1w

    i've emailed the company and they've basically said they're not responsible as it was made by the previous owners (maxdata) who went into receivership and its based in germany.

    Are you using a graphics card? If so, then there could be a problem with it. Is it possible for you to test the monitor on another system (maybe a friend's)?

    Take the monitor to someone qualified for lcd repairs. If the led is green but no image appears then it could be the CCFL lamp(s). If you look from different angles you see the image?
