Question about Samsung SyncMaster 173P 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Once Standby mode shut down Monitor will not operate for a few days

If the mains power to my computer set up is turned off, then turned back on, my Samsung Syncmaster 173P Plus monitor will not turn back on, no sign of life at all (blue power light not even lit up). This has happened a few times and I found that after say 3-5 days when afer repeatedly plugging it in directly to the mains it will suddenly turn back on (i.e. blue power switch lights up etc.). It can then be re-attached to the computer & will work perfectly well again until the mains is again interrupted (power blackout, inadvertently switching off powerboard, blowing a fuse etc.) Unfortunately we do not have the paperwork on the purchase so cannot return for warranty repair (I think?) - any assistance appreciated to resolve this most frustrating problem. Cheers, Simon

Accidentally put my system on standby mode..using XP OS and DIY desktop.now i cannot get out of standby mode..check KB and mouse ok..any shortcut key or other ways i can start up and boot?even my two DVD...


I think you have to shut your computer down completely and reboot. This means that you will lose any work you didn't save before going in standby mode.
If your PC has a 'reset' button (usually located near the power button), press it. Your machine should reboot. If it doesn't or if you don't have one, you can try pressing and holding the power button for about 5 seconds. This should shut down your computer completely. Press the power button once more and it should boot normally, though you might get a warning saying Windows didn't shut down properly. If you get the choice, just choose to boot Windows normally. If pressing and holding the power button doesn't work, try looking for a power switch on the back of your machine. It should be near the power cable. Flip the switch, wait a few seconds and flip it again, then boot your computer as usual. You might get the same message which I mentioned above.

Dell pc with windows xp wont come out of standby mode to be able to power up pc and use it


First, how do you know it's in standby mode?
I would turn it off and disconnect from the power source. Then plug it back in and try to start it. If possible, start it in safe mode to see if you can identify what is happening. If in safe mode, do a system restore back a day or two.
var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_889fec04667049cfad3405862ebb395a(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_d9758fe2c8fa4d33bc34f8b0b6f0496c(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

Windows explorer keeps shutting down if inactive.


Go into the Control Panel and check out this category:
Power Options - See if your computer is set to shut down or enter standby mode at a specified interval. If you do not want it to, change the setting to an acceptable one. You will have options for time until the monitor turns off, the hard drive turns off, the system stands by and the system hibernates.

Hope this helps,

Can't turn on


When you turn the MAIN off you are killing all power to the set---Some advice---If you Google the model number of this set with the word problem after it you should find what I have seen a lot in these sets: they develop bad solder connections on the power supply printed circuit board---usually the board is about 18 inches tall and 12 inches wide--A number of sites online offer to have you ship them the board and they will resolder it for you.
I have repaired about 12 of these with this problem in the last 2 years---The board has to be removed(there are quite a few plugs that need to be labeled and removed and lots of screws that secure the board in place.)

Maybe not a job for a do it yourself person but the soldering (if it is your problem) will take about 45 minutes(including removal and installing board back).

Like most modern sets this set uses lead free solder and it is soldered(the boards) in a wave or one step process---over time from heat and expansion some connections may crack or even break loose----I would look at the POWER SUPPLY board(follow the power cord as it goes right to it)

If you have any questions or need help please contact me here.

The monitor shuts off. Turning the power off


the monitor is going into power saving mode ... it can happen if it is not receiving any signal from the pc ( pc is not running or booted properly, bad video cable connection monitor to pc) or the pc is itself in suspend/standby mode.

Monitor will not turn on including power switch


I suspect the power supply for the monitor. Try a power supply from a working monitor. If you have a used computer store nearby, take your power supply to them and try it on another monitor.

There is no need to turn off a monitor using its power switch. Monitors automatically go into standby mode when they are not receiving a signal. In standby mode they use less than one cent of electricity per day. If saving electricity is your goal, raise the temperature in your home by a degree and run the air conditioning less.

While trying to change channels, my t.v. displayed ''no signal'' and then shut itself off. Now, when I turn it on, it says no signal and turns itself off after a few seconds.


Turn the television on and as soon as the screen turns on repeatily press the input button or change the input to whatever input you are using from a source device. As long as you change it to anything other than RGB.

Your television is essentially a big computer monitor with multiple inputs and a tuner. When using your computer and shutting it down the monitor will go in a power save mode. You don't need to shut off your monitor due to this power saving mode. When you power up your computer your monitor automatically turn on.

With the VIZIO and the RGB (computer) input the television will act just like a computer monitor. When you have a computer connected it will power down automatically when you shut off your computer. When you turn your computer on the VIZIO will automatically come out of standby mode. This is through RGB only.

This is normal operation for the VIZIO but can see confusing when nothing is connected to the RGB input. If you change your television input to RGB it will sense no signal on the input and will go into standby mode after about 5 - 10 seconds. If you were to send a signal to the television through RGB it would automatically kick on.
