    Monitor goes to power save mode

    I'm having the same issue with an LG Fantasy, 19".

    Upon purchasing an Xbox 360 Elite and using the monitor as it's display with a HDMI/DVI converter and my 5.1 speakers as stereo, the monitor continued to work fine on the PC upon a cable swap - until running GTAIV. It no longer functions as a PC display, automatically shifting into standy upon reaching the desktop. The BIOS and XP loading screen -do- display.

    I can only assume that with these minimalistic LG products, beautiful as they are, some internal mode or setting is being altered by our actions, software or other hardware plugged into the monitor, and with the Fantasy for example, there is only ONE button on the body of the monitor, a touch sensitive power switch.

    These mode switches are impossible. I'll try safemode in a few moments and if that fails, I'll take the screen to a friend's house and test cables.

    My recommendation, having not yet tried more than simple, late night methods, is to plug the monitor into another computer, and if you get a display try to default the monitor's settings before plugging it back into the old computer, and trying another monitor on your old computer to reduce video settings until you isolate the issue.

    Good luck

    Have a Flatiron (W2241T) that worked fine with an old Dell desktop. We had a power outage at home and when we started up the screen went automatically to power saving mode. Need some help.

    I plugged my LG 171OS into a MAC Ibook laptop thing. screen works when connected to MAC, but as soon I plug into PC hard drive its on power save...I have read through solutions posted here, but as it just flashes "power save" then turns off, and screen is black, I am struggling to work out how to reconfigure screen blind-I can't see anything on power save. I know nothing of motherboards nor do I dare open the hard drive...surely there's a simple Control ALT delete kind of combo that will wake the damned screen up??? I am typing this on the MAC laptop without using the LG screen.

I have an LG W2261V, and an old Sharp LL-T19D1-H. The PC runs both just fine, and the PSU has plenty of power. Unfortunately the LG handles power save mode very differently, where the LG would not switch on after entering this mode unless reset (unplugged, PC rebooted, etc). Extremely frustrating, as the old Sharp never had any problems exiting its own power save mode. The LG would enter this mode based on the monitor power settings (in whatever power scheme you are using) in the screensaver tab in display properties. I fixed this by selecting "Never" for "the Turn off monitor" property. I guess this is a warning to those who may wish to buy a new LG monitor, but want to use a power scheme to turn off the monitor.

I had the same problem on LG monitor too. the problem started when I accidentally bump my computer's desk. i can not see anything on my monitor because my monitor went automatically into power saving mode and i can not fix the problem with the keyboard or mouse because i don't have any PS2 on my CPU. WHen I try to open my CPU there will be this beep sound twice. So I try to check and reinstalled the memory and the VGA card and it miraculously make my computer active again. I hope my experience will be useful to the others.

It's an LCD so the problem is most likely the back-light inverter board. Take a flashlight and shine it directly into the screen from the front. Can you see the image on the screen now? If the image is there but you can't see it without the flashlight than the inverter board needs to be replaced. This is a VERY common problem. Good Luck and let me know what happens, His Dudeness

When it have this kind of error is a problem of the powerboard.
Anyway you must open it and look at the all capacitors and if are them inflated, if them are inflated must change them.

But can be a problem with inverters... control the transistors - MOSFET on the powerboard.

Good luck!

Check the display settings of your video card. This can be done by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties. Then go to the settings button and clicking advanced. All video cards are different, but there should be a tab there that will allow you to configure how you want to monitor to be utilized (mirror of laptop screen or extenstion of laptop screen). Often times, laptops have a button to toggle between modes (Example, DEll is Fn F8).

SOURCE: Monitor automatically clicks into power saving mode

Laptops often have a function key which switches from laptop only, external monitor only, laptop & external. One of the top number keys, along with the function (fn for short) must be pressed simultaneously to step through these.

Where these keys are at, may differ from laptop to laptop.

My LG flatiron W1943TB turns on, says analog power saving mode, goes black and then the power button flashes.. but the monitor is hooked up to my dell notebook bc my LCD died


Hi erin mckinle,
That is probably it's, uh, analog power saving mode. When the screen goes black and the power button flashes, make some mouse gestures or hit some keys that would not affect anything (try spacebar). That should bring up the screen. If you think it goes into power saving mode too fast, go to Control Panel --> Power Options, and change the values. Hope this helps.

My monitor shuts down after one second.


Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean that your Dell computermag-glass_10x10.gif has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display settings.
  1. Step 1 Press any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your Dell computer tower or laptop.
  2. Step 2 Press any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
  3. Step 3 Enter your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
  4. Step 4 Change the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press "Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the drop-down list and press "Apply."

Prevent the laptop/desktop monitor from going to power saving mode:

  • Click on Start | Control Panel | Power Options.
  • In the Power Option properties window, click on the Power Schemes Tab
  • Set the Turn off Monitor/ Turn off Hard Disks option when on Power (and also Battery for laptop users) to Never.
  • Now click on the Save as... button and assign a name to this power scheme... Let us call it 'Presentation' and then click on OK.
  • That's it congrats!
