Question about HP vs15 15"LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor goes to sleep mode quickly without video cable

Im using a plasma tv as my pc monitor. i have not been able to figure out why i cannot get any sound from the plasma but i have discovered that you can get sound from the original cpu monitor while using the plasma at the same time. so the plasma shows the picture while the monitor makes the sounds-they work as a team. but now my monitor goes to sleep mode after about a minute... how do i make it not go into sleep mode so quickly?

    start - control panel - power options. Change top pulldown menu to Home/Office Desktop and the other 3 below (all pull down menus)to "never"
    Then "OK"

    Additionally, you may have a tab that says Hibernate. Unclick the box that says Enable Hybernation.

    Is this a laptop or desktop?

    For sound, you will need a cable from the output of your soundcard to the input of the monitor if it is equipped with internal speakers.

Have you tried lowering the resolution of your computer? Better yet you can try booting up the pc in safe mode. If that work, then probably the problem is that the monitor does not support high resolution.
You can also check if your video cables are properly inserted to the correct slots. Also check if your video cables are damaged. Thank you.

Hey my Gateway FPD1530 monitor is not working properly. I turn it on and it works. But as soon as I plug in to my computer it goes into sleep mode. Is this a power supply problem?

It goes into sleep mode if it does not get the video signal from your PC, or like you said, it may have power supply problem. We need to narrow down the problem first by trying this monitor with another PC or another monitor iwth this PC.
If it is the monitor problem, then you will need to do an in-depth troubleshooting, please read my guides first before DIY repair.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

I have my acer p205h 20 inch monitor hooked up to my tobshiba laptop and it works great except it will not go into sleep mode when laptop goes into sleep mode the monitor goes to there is not signal check...

Unfortunately, this is a standard problem, as when your laptop goes into sleep mode, it shuts off power to the secondary monitor, without giving it the signal to go into sleep mode. You could try digging around your settings, but most likely you'll just need to turn off the monitor when you're not using it.

LCD Flatron 21inch going into power save mode problem

this is not a problem with the monitor, it looks as your computer is not sending any video signals to the monitor thus it goes into saving mode. Take a look at the computer, check the video card. Pull it out then turn it on, turn it off again and place the video card where it should go then turn the PC on again. This should clue the OS to re-configure the video driver. Did you try another monitor ?

Going to Sleep

Due to the power surge, it is highly possible that the monitor was given a boot by your computer on it's way out.

This will short out a very small transistor inside the monitor on the video board and in turn, then monitor cannot see that there is a signal so goes to sleep.

If you get brave enough to venture inside the screen, then check near the cable input. The transistors are only around 3mm and have 3 legs (two one side and one in the middle on the other).

If you find anything like that burnt (get a magnifying glass) then replacing the board is the easiest option. Just don't be tempted to wipe the board before you look at everything very closely, you may wipe away the tiny bit of evidence you are looking for.

Hope it helps =)
