Question X Blanks other terminal screens

Ok, I know a lot of people have had this problem, but no solutions have worked. . . .
I was using Wine the other day and the program froze, so I used xkill to close the program. I accidentally clicked on the desktop and after that X started blanking all the other terminals. I've tried setterm -blank 0 and xset -s noblank and xset -s off and none of those have been successful. I also added those lines to the initrc file and still nothing. Anybody have any idea how to fix this and if using xkill on the desktop actually caused it or not? I didn't have this problem before that happened. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
