Question about Westinghouse LCM-19v1 Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor shuts off after inactivity

Monitor appears to go into hybernation when I have stopped using it. It doesn't happen right away but probably about half an hr later if I haven't returned. The light changes from green to orange. All I have to do is press the power button to turn it back on and as long as I am using the PC it is ok, but is this a problem that should be investigated?

Hi maggieis,

I wouldn't worry about your monitor powering off after 30 min. It's just responding to the power management settings that are configured from within Windows.

These settings can be changed so that your monitor always stays on (if you want) but the current setting is set to help save energy by turning off the monitor when no one is using the computer.

So, no worries...that's just normal Windows behavior.

Hope that helps,

My dell says hybernating while on and hang

Hybernation is a power saving feature in microsoft windows. Often times this will cause the computer to freeze.

One solution is to disable hybernation in the power settings located inside the control panel.

On windows vista / 7 you can do this by clicking on the start button (lower left hand corner of the screen)
Then going to "Control Panel"
At the top right of the screen should be a search box, simply type "Power" Into this box and options to edit / change the power plan should appear. Choose edit power plan,
Make sure any options pertaining to hybernation are disabled, You can also adjust when the screen and hard drive shut off during inactivity. For desktops it is recommended to set all options to "Never"

Once finished click the "Save Settings" Button. and you are all set.
You can adjust these settings as much as needed, they can always be undone.

On windows 8 you can access the control panel by moving the mouse to the upper right hand corner of the screen and choosing "Settings" or "Computer Settings" the same procedures apply after this step.

My Monitor developed a green vertical line on the right side. It appears after 1h using it and dosen not dissapear when I plug off the PC. Any chance it is fixable?

Check the cables. It might be overly simplistic, but if your monitor is connected via a serial cable, one of the pins might be bent or missing.

This can cause slight display problems, including a vertical line.

If you are using a USB, try another cable and see if the problem persists.

Update your video card driver.

Some discrete cards have an update feature in the properties window for the device.

Right-click on your video card in the programs list, and select "Properties." The update will be a button under the "Drivers" tab if your device is so equipped.

If not, visit the manufacturer's website and search for the most current driver for your model number. Updated video drivers could solve the problem.

Place a box fan directly behind your computers intake vent for extra cooling.

Sometimes if there are system problems, your components can run too hot.

If cooling the computer takes away the line, you know have you an overheating problem, not a monitor problem.

You might try cleaning the internals with canned air.

Remove the housing, and thoroughly blow any dust, hair or carpet fiber away from the fan and off the mother board.

While you're there, you can check to see if there are any obvious loose connections.

Connect the monitor to another computer if you have one available.

This is probably the most definitive test of your monitor's health.

If you have a line when the monitor is connected to a different machine, it's likely time for a new monitor.

As frustrating as it sounds, taking apart one of today's monitors in an attempt to repair it is more expensive than buying a replacement.

If you don't have another computer available, try shutting down the computer but leave the power on to the monitor.

Using the buttons on the monitor bezel (if you have them), call up the settings.

If the line appears in the menu just as it did in the video from your computer, then you definitely have a monitor problem.

Replacement is probably in order

hope this helps

Tablet goes to sleep within just a 'few' minutes of nonuse i would like to know how to change this to make it just go to screensaver and not to go to sleep or hybernate so soon after i walk away...


Yes the Forced Shut Downs are very harmful to the Power Management System of the laptop, its Batteries, the Hard Drive and the integrity of the Operating System. I strongly advise you to desist from doing this.

If your Laptop goes into Power Save Screen Shut Down, the Hard Drive is unaffected and remains active typically after a short period of User inactivity), A sweep of the Touch Pad or touch of the Space Bar should instantly re-illuminate the Screen. Longer periods of User inactivity, however, can cause Hibernation Mode to set in, during which both Screen and Hard Drive go into Power Save Shut Down.

To Resume Operation from Hibernation Mode press and hold the Power Button for just 1 second, then release it. The Laptop's Login Page or Screen Saver should then appear on the screen after a moment or two, This is the correct procedure. Pressing and holding down the Power Button until the computer shuts down is called a Forced Shut Down and is reserved for emergencies such Screen Freezes, Serious Crashes, Rapid Termination of an Uninterruptible Virus Download, System Failure and other similarly urgent scenarios and only.

You do not say which Operating System you're using or mention the make or model number of your laptop, to enable me to make an informed guess, so I offer you a generalised Windows Solution, which can be extrapolated to other Operating Systems or refined by further clarification, if required.

Right Click on an empty space on the Taskbar > Properties > Notification Area > tick Power if it is not already ticked > Apply > OK > right click on the Battery Icon, bottom right of screen, near the clock > Power Options > Select a Power Plan > tick High Performance > Change Plan Settings > use 4 Drop Menus to select your preferred option in time ranges from as short as 1 minute up to as londg as Never for each of the 4 functions (2 for use under battery power and 2 for battery-less, direct mains powered use) > Save Settings > Restart computer > Test your satisfaction level and Reset again if necessary.

If the above Step-By-Step Guide does not tally with your Operating System, please feel free to Add a Comment/Clarification Request to this Question, identifying your Laptop's Brand Name and Model Number and your Operating System and I will happily do my best to offer you further guidance.

I hope this helps.

Terminals shutting down after minutes of inactivity goes back to user name screen
