Oh, now I know your problem! It's the "blue screen of death". You never got static did you? Just went black suddenly. Sadly, this is very common with modern screens. you need a filter or some device to generate a sync signal or a screen that shows static rather than going black on you.

What happens is the when the signal begins to weaken even slightly, the video signal amplitude begins to drop. The threshold of most devices to go blue/black screen is actually quite high. Thus you get a black screen well before signal is lost.
