    every time my monitor is turned on it foes back to sleep mode after a sbout 5 seconds and the green light stays on

  • steve nixon Oct 24, 2008

    My monitor runs for anything up to 30 mins then goes blank. Swithching off and on again brings back the picture for 2 seconds brfore going blank again. If I leave the monitor off for a while I get another 30 min stint. It is nothing to do with the computer as I have switched monitors and computers but the problem stays with the belinea. Any solutions?

    my lcd mnitor not working

    i.e no input signal is there

    so i can do

  • msrayke Jan 13, 2009

    I boot the system and the monitor immediately goes blank. I turn the monitor off and turn it back on and the picture is displayed or 10 seconds and then goes blank. I have checked all connections, cleaned the contacts on the memory board. I have tried F8 and it the system does go to safe mode but the monitor shuts down. I have tried the monitor on a different system and it works fine. The system is a E Machine and the monitor is a 19" flat panel. It was working fine until I **** it down to install a new printer, I am out of ideas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Monitor is sleep mode how do i get it out of sleep mode it says going to sleep

You can move the mouse or press the keyboard keys.

If this happens in the middle of using the computer than either your video card drivers are damaged, video card is damaged, monitor is failing, connection (wire) to the monitor is damaged or not connected correctly.

Check the cord and connections for the monitor; this has one wire that must have voltage on it or the monitor goes to sleep, and a broken wire or loose connection will fool it into thinking you are powering down. If this doesn't work try going into power options and setting monitor to never power down.

trixieb1, It's NOT going to sleep mode. Use warranty if possible!! If that not option you will need to read about "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" and the voltage inverters that power them. Learn to do flashlight test when screen goes to black or blank n black!!! Read my fixya profile and those of other ccfl back-lit lcd monitor technicians. We already know what is wrong with your unit. And It is a VERY big problem for all LCD monitor manufacturers. Just do some reading before you do anything else. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

Works when it wants to then turns whie with grey line in it


If only the monitor is going to sleep, then it could be a problem with the connection from the monitor to the computer or with the cable.

If the computer goes to sleep and if you are not able to wake it from sleep then check the sleep mode settings and also the power management settings for the keyboard and mouse.
You may also do a system restore if you are not able to wake the computer from sleep.
