Question about LG Flatron L1715S 17" LCD Monitor

When the PC starts the monitor does not come out of the power standby mode

Hi, The problem is that when i switch off my PC, whether i choose to switch my monitor off or leave it go on power save mode doesnt make a difference. The next time when i start the PC, the monitor light turns to green for a quick second (implying it received a signal from the PC) but then goes back into the standby / power save mode whilst the PC continues to boot up. The only way to resolve this is to switch the PC off and try and switch the monitor off and on and simultaneously switching the PC on. I am running windows XP service pack 2 and have a LG L1715S 17" monitor. I have also recently upgraded the Nvidia graphics card drivers that i have on the PC to the latest ones available on the website. I have also ensured the power options within windows are set never to turn anything off i.e. Monitor or PC. Short of replacing the monitor cable i have tried everything else. (although dont see why the cable would be bad as mentioned above when i switch the PC on the monitor light changes colour to green for a brief second implying some input received from the PC). Any help at all is much appreciated.

Re: When the PC starts the monitor does not come out of...

Sorry it is a known issue, common to all LCD monitors :( Long story short: Sometimes they do this (it has to do with the soldering metal) it is very easy to repair so if it is in warranty you can contact Lg and if not a repair will not be too expensive ( they just need to apply some soldering metal in the weak spots)

Hi.i have a dell e521 with a e197 fp monitor. when i turn the system on the monitor stays in stand-by mode. so i have a black screen,is it broken?

not really.. theres a possibility that the monitor is just on standby mode. try to disconnect the power cable of the monitor, then hold the power button of the monitor to drain its flea power. put the power cable back then try it again.

if its going to do the same thing, check the connection of the monitor at the back of the computer. see if its seated properly.

try restarting the computer..

try draining the flea power on the computer as well, possible that the computer is in standby or hibernate mode..

Monitor goes into sleep mode as I'm working on it. How do I shut off/

How do you shut off sleep mode? I take it you're using Vista, as XP has "standby:" mode rather than sleep. You first right-click the desktop, then click "personalize." from there, click on "screen saver," and then "change power settings." from there, look on the left hand side of the window and choose the option you want to change. Probably, you'll want to "choose when to turn off the display." Hope this helps,

The Monitor not works after the Standby Mode or Switch off

If you have not tried yet, pick a can of freeze-it, or other. Gain access, safely power up and when the monitor goes into standby, hit the area and cool down the IC's. If they are overheating, this has a good chance of bringing them back and identifying your problem. If so, look at better heatsinks, reapply new paste, or install a muffin fan, or seek better ventilation.
Heat is the enemy of all IC's.

My monitor gets switched off when i connect to cpu,the moment i disconnect it from cpu,its switches on automatically.what may be the problem?

One of two things:

1.) Your video card is 'stuck' in standby mode, which in turn sends a signal putting the monitor in low power 'standby' mode as well. When you disconnect it, the monitor returns to normal 'on' mode. Rebooting the PC should correct this issue.

2.) Your resolution or refresh rate are set outside the range supported by the monitor. When you connect the monitor, it starts receiving a signal that it can't display, so it simply turns off. You'll need to reboot the PC and press F8 quickly to bot into safe mode and correct the monitor settings.
