Monitor starts then gives black screen

I have a CTX PV700 monitor that has been very good until a few weeks ago it would not switch on properly. If you switch it on you can see something for a short time and then it goes black. Repeated switching it on can sometime work. I have tried a different power supply but no difference. It was an expensive monitor when I bought it but realistically it is not worth getting it professionally repaired but if anyone has any ideas what may be wrong I will have a go at repair.

Thank All

Could be the backlight has gone. Basic walk through of repair here click here

But you'll need to google and see if you can get detailed instructions and a spare for your particular monitor.

Try Device Manager and see if there are any drivers needing updated.
