I was just given a Benq 20Inch LCD monitor with Vga, and DVI connectors. It was broken when I got it, but when I connected it to my xbox via HDMI<->DVI cable it works fine, and my "test" became to hours of gaming. I tried to connect it again today, and I get nothing. Power light comes on stays on showing it has a signal but the display comes on for about 1 second then turns off (black screen, and no back light). If I turn of the display and back on it doesn't flicker just nothing, same thing if I unplug it. But if I unplug it and leave it unplugged for a while It will do the flash thing. I dont know if its a bad connection inside. I know its not the cable because I can connect them to my TV and they work fine, and its not incompatible resolution because it would say out of range.

What I am trying to find out is... does it sound like a bad connection to the backlight, a bad inverter, or some blown capacitors?

sure....or anything else inside of the monitor.....it could literally be anything..without taking it apart and looking at every single piece (or testing all the electronics with a multimeter etc..) then there's no real way to tell

I have a Benq that is doing the exact same thing. I couldn't get enough of it apart to even attempt repair. I gave up. It is not worth the time.

Buy another. They are fairly inexpensive.

So it's working fine kinda. If I Live it on with a signal going to it, eventually It will come on I'm thinking it's a bad resistor or capacitor.
