Every time I try to turn on the monitor it goes into a "safe mode". I originally thought it was my computer so I reimaged the Hard Drive and it worked well for one day.
Now when the pc is turned off and I turn the monitor on it will only go to "safe mode". This is very frustrating, what can I do to correct this problem.
The monitor is working ok if it goes to safe mode with no input.which do you turn on first?(to work out which could be faulty)It is most likely that the monitor data cable is the fault(at either end) or the PC m'bd disp skt,try pluging an add on disp'card in to the PC. Regards Chook.

This type of problem is usually caused by a failure of the filter capacitors on the power supply board. The LG L204ws uses the AIP-0156 power supply which is the same board used in many of the LG monitors that were sold around the same time. Here is a link to a repair guide for the LG L226wtq model that used that board. The repair guide as pictures and videos showing how to open the unit and check the filter caps. There are parts lists showing what needs to be replaced too.
If you have a problem getting into safe mode using windows Vista or 7, boot up your computer. As soon as it tries to start windows turn off the power. When you try to start it again it should come up with a menu asking if you want to use safe mode or boot normally. Select safe mode.
Hi, the Power Saving Mode, turns the screen off to conserve energy. On the remote, press Menu, and scan to Power Saving Mode. You can change the amount of time, when the Screen turn-off, the TV shut-off etc. You can set the time to (5 min) to, (never, turn-off). This should help with your problem. Thanks paul7of9
I had the same problem with my LG Flatron (not the same model as your one). I fixed it by connecting both the digital and analogue cables from the pc. Presumably, the problem occurs because the monitor is not receiving a digital signal.
I had a similar problem with an LG monitor that I resolved by connecting the analogue cable as well as the digital cable from the pc. This problem must be caused by the monitor not receiving a digital signal.
Your monitor goes to Power Saving Mode when the signal it is receiving is not correct.
In all probability this is not a problem of the monitor itself, rather you should check the connections and the computer the monitor it's connected to. For example you could try a different RGB cable and try it in a different computer.
