Power light going to blinking amber

I have an intermittent problem where the screen either doesnt come on or goes off into a pseud power save mode? - ie the power light blinks amber, occassionally there is a clicking sound in time with the blinkig, and the light on the power supply slightly flickers gently in time. I have tried it on other PC's o same result - now I am not sure if the problem is the power supply or the monitor. It does work occassionally for periods of time? Is there a loose connection in the monitor?? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Power light going to blinking amber

Sounds like a problem in the monitor's power supply. This will need component-level troubleshooting.

My flatron L1710S flat screen will not come out of power saving mode. When I turn on the monitor the power button/light is green for a few seconds, the screen indicated "power saving mode", then...

I switch on my PC, ensuring that all cables, leads and power supplies are connected properly. The tower powers up no problems at all. I switch the screen on, the green led lights up, the screen is completely black. A blue box appears centrally on the screen with the text 'power saving mode'. The green led light turns amber and then the screen just goes black.

Please don't suggest going to control panel, as I can't get that far.

Problem w/Dell E176FPf monitor stuck in power save mode

Ok if it the monitor works fine on another unit discount it out of the equation as a monitor problem.
I would suspect the driver on the PC that delivers the problem, especially the video card.
. Check that the cable is also on tightly. remove it and even clean the pins and replug it .the plug on that PC may be dirty

You May need to replace the video card as the communication to the monitor is intermittent and that is why you get the amber light.
Open the box with power off. clean the card if it has a lot of dust on it ( most do and its always a shock) wipe it over ( BOTH SIDES) and then try to start it up as usual with the monitor connected to see if that fixed it ( sometimes works) if not get another card and replace it. Best I can offer without being there to help on the spot.
A new card should allow you access to install and configure it and these days they are pretty cheap to buy

Compaq w17q monitor keeps going on and off how can i fix it?


1. check the power cords- make sure all are snug.
2. check and make sure no pins are bent in the cord to the computer
3. make sure that the monitor is not in auto-power save. Or in auto off mode. For example- is the light amber or green.
4. finally, make sure that your settings on your computer are not set to power off your monitor- as in a blank screen saver, power save or hibernate

Princeton LCD17 blinks off immediately

Check the VGA cord that connects from the PC to the LCD, try putting VGA cord properly to the LCD and PC, or change the VGA cord. saving mode indicates no signal from the PC. So either the PC is not booting up or VGA cord faulty.

LG Flatron L1710S Monitor stuck in Power Save Mode

Try wiggling the Cord on the backside of the monitor.. Not the Power Plug Cord, The Other Cord that attaches to the PC. Do this once the monitor turns off , grab ahold of the cord about 2 inches from the back of the monitor, then bend the cord to the right, keep bending from the right to the left a couple times to see if your screen comes back, if it does, than you have a Loose connection and this sometimes causes the Symptoms you are receiving.. Hope it helps.

Stuck in power saver

Try the unlock procedure: With the monitor on press and hold the "MENU button for abot five seconds and see if it resets. If that doesn't work tell me a bit more about the screen - is there any OSD (on screen display) or error messages? Is the power indicator light on? If so, what color is it? Blue indicates that that you may need to turn the brightness and contrast up...\ If it is actually in power save the indicator light will be amber. What color is it? If the light is amber and all the connections to the computer are correct and it still won't come-up then it's an internal problem and the protect circuit may be keeping the screen from lighting. Good luck... And let me know. Bill
