    I held down the menu button for appr. 5 seconds and it went into burn in mode. I can't figure how to get it out of this mode. While holding down any other button, the power button does nothing.also the only way I can turn off the monitor is to plug in the power button while holding down the power button.

    I tried to do the above solution to the problem, but every time i got to the menu, after about 2 seconds would go "no signal" and then go to the "Burn-In Mode". It has worked on other computers though, just when its not plugged into one or on the comp i want it to work on, it does this.

I didn't have the monitor connected to the computer, and that's why the power button was unresponsive. After connecting it, the solution above worked for me.(My KVM switch was set to a computer that was turned off)

My computer is on.. but my screen wont turn on . The red light on the botton of screen is blinking and it says DIGITAL POWER SAVING MODE on the screen. how do i make my monitor work ! (:


When the monitor detects no input "signal", it goes to "sleep", to consume less power.

Check that the "data" cable is securely connected to both the monitor and the VGA-output on the back of your computer.

Or, try connecting the monitor to a different computer, to see if the monitor works at all.

Or, try connecting a different monitor to your computer, to see if your computer's video-card is working correctly.

Monitor will come on for 1 second and then go blank and the power light go from blue to red then if you cut power back on it will come back on for a second and then shut off


moniotr switches into power save mode when it is connected to the computer and there is no signal for the computer. Try following the steps below which i recomended for another poster as well

Unplug the monitor from the power
Unplug the monitor from the computer
Plug the monitor back in.
Try turning it on.

DOES IT SAY "NO SOUCRE DETECTED" or soemthing like that???

if it DOESN'T it means there is something wrong with the computer.

if it DOES:

plug it back on to the computer, turn the computer power off.
Press and hold the power button on the computer for about 15 seconds.
Plug the computer back on.
Try turning the computer on.
if it's not turning on again there a problem either with your monitor cable, or the plug, or the video card plug. It is unlikely that your video card is broken if you hear no wired series of short and long beeps when you try turning the computer on.
Good luck.

Below you will find my recommendations for troubleshooting this issue:

1. Reseat the power cord and verify a good power source.

To reseat the power cord, follow the steps below:

1.1 Power down the system.
1.2 Unplug the power cord.
1.3 Wait approximately one minute.
1.4 Reseat the power cord.
1.5 Verify that the power cord is plugged directly into a known good power outlet.

2. Verify that the monitor is receiving power from a known good outlet and bypass any power strips.

To test the power outlet, perform the following steps:

2.1 Unplug the monitor power cable from the power outlet.
2.2 Plug in a different device, and verify that the device is operational.
2.3 If there is no power try another outlet. Remove any power strips and try plugging directly into the main power outlet.

3. Verify the monitor is powered on and the power button is engaged.

Ensure that the monitor is powered on and that the power button is fully engaged. To do so, check the power LED on the front of the monitor; it should be lit.

NOTE: There are two types of power switches:
A mechanical switch characterized by a long travel. You have to push it further and you will hear an audible click.
An electrical switch that has a short travel and almost no click.

A lit monitor LED can be any of the following:

* Green
* Blinking green
* Yellow
* Blinking yellow
* A combination, such as alternating green and yellow

Any of these states indicate the monitor is receiving power and that you should proceed.

4. Swap power cables.

To try a known good power cable on the monitor, follow the instructions below:

4.1 Turn off a working monitor.
4.2 Unplug the cable from the back of the working monitor, and unplug the cable from the wall.
4.3 Unplug the cable from the monitor in question.
4.4 Plug in the cable that came from the working monitor.

5. Run the monitor self test.

To run the monitor self test, perform the following steps:

5.1 Power off both the computer and the monitor.
5.2 Unplug the video cable from the computer or video card.
5.3 Reseat the power cord to the monitor, ensuring it is plugged into a known-good outlet.
5.4 Power on the monitor.

NOTE: The monitor self test will move around on some monitor models. If the monitor self test moves, allow it to move to the affected areas of the monitor to check for the problem described.

If the Self test failed, it's possible that the monitor is faulty. Contact dell to check if it's still under warranty so they can replace it.

My HP monitor (f50) has malfunctioned


Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)

Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
  • If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a compatible resolution:
    NOTE: Find the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
    1. Turn on the computer and press the F8 key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
    2. If you are using Windows Vista, select Enable low resolution video (640 x 480) , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document, Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista . If you are using Windows XP, select Enable VGA Mode , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution. If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select Safe Mode and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:
      1. Once Windows opens to the desktop in Safe Mode, click Start , and Run .
      2. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter . The MS Configuration Utility window appears.
      3. Click the Advanced button, and select VGA 640 x 480 x 16 if it is available.
      4. Click OK and restart the computer.
      5. After Windows opens, click Start , and then click Run .
      6. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter .
      7. Click the Advanced button, and remove the checkmark next to VGA 640 x 480 x 16 .
      8. Click OK . Do NOT restart the computer.
    3. After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties (Windows XP, 98/Me) or Personalize (Windows Vista).
    4. In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click Display Properties . In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the Settings tab.
    5. In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to True Color .
    6. Click Apply after you have made your adjustment. The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
    7. If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click Yes on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way it was before. Try another setting until you find a display configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
      NOTE: If the native resolution is not available, download and install updated video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
    8. Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
Step 2: Connect to another monitor
Using a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the original computer to another monitor that works to update its video drivers.
  • If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.
