Question about TDV Vison F173 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I can't turn off the screen. The orange light remains on at all time when the computer is turned off.
Was working fine up to last week.
Bought it Dec. 31, 2007
It sounds very normal; when the video signal from the computer disappears, most late monitors will go to standby mode but most will also tell you it's going to sleep with some kind of message.
Turning the main system off doesn't normally disconnect the AC from the monitor so what you describe is that the monitor is plugged into a receptacle of its own, not one that you are turning off with the PC.
BTW, PCs and TVs (including monitors) aren't really 'off' when they are off. They have a small amount of current drain that serves to keep alive certain circuits so they can respond to, for example, the return of the video signal or, in the case of a TV set, a command to power up from your remote. They could not respond unless they can interpret the signal to wake up.
