Monitor turning on and off

  radooboo 20:55 07 Aug 2019

When turning on the PC, the monitor shows the image for a 0.7 seconds and then turns off for 5 or more seconds, again and again, sort of like a blinking image. I've tried reinstalling the video drivers. I've noticed that this off and on pattern usually stops when there is a lot of white on the screen (Skype window) or after waiting for ~10 minutes after the pc was turned on. The LED button on the monitor is also turned off when the blinking occurs suggesting that this may be a power issue? Could someone please help me?

check power plug is fully inserted, check wires if not a molded plug, try in a differnt power socket.
