If you have telemetry, then it's not the monitor, but the camera connection. The usual failure is the USB connection into the Go-Pro - if you are using the DJI gimbal, or trying to use a Hero 4 on a hero 3 gimbal.

Also check that the camera is set to video, not photo.

Check the flex cable.
Incorrect PAL vs NTSC setting will just give you erratic jumpy video.

Anything between the camera and the mini OSD! check all the cables all away along the signal path. A £10 mulitmeter is an excellent investment for tracing faults! This will allow you to test each link in isolation.

It could be the Go Pro, but this is unusual.

One more thing to check is your memory card....lower grade memory card has a tendency to freeze up the GoPro! At that point, you will get your mini iosd overlay but a black screen.
