SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Flatron W2252TQ goes into 'power saving mode'

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.

SOURCE: Nothing on the screen at startup

If you cant get into the setup menu then I would think the monitor is defective,you did not state if you hooked up the monitor to a computer that has a vga port that works.

Acer Aspire 5536 only gives black screen when i connect power supply

  • Nothing is more annoying than a monitor that refuses to turn on. Make sure your Acer monitor is plugged in to a functioning outlet. If it's plugged into a power strip, try replacing it with a new one or moving the plug to a different outlet. Ensure that both ends of the power cable are plugged in firmly and securely, and that the connection to the monitor is not loose.
Cable Issues
  • Your Acer LCD monitor will usually accept DVI and VGA inputs. If you have an older computer, a VGA cable should work fine. If it doesn't have a VGA port, you'll need to obtain an inexpensive DVI to VGA adapter at your local computer store. A DVI cable, however, is compatible with most modern computers and offers superior picture quality over VGA. Make sure you're using the cable that's compatible with your system, and that you have the proper conversion adapter, if necessary.

Just bought HDMI to DVI cable to connect my VL193 to my HP laptop - unable to get the monitor to "pick up" the signal - just a blank screen - if I power it on & off, just goes right to power...


Desktop PCs automatically seek an external monitor to output graphics to. Laptops default settings send the image to the internal monitor. You need to manually instruct the laptop to export the image to an external monitor.

With the cable connected and the monitor powered up, try pressing the Fn key (bottom left of keyboard) on the laptop and simultaneously pressing the function key at the top ofthe keyboard with an image of 2 monitors (often F5 or F6) to sent d the image to the external screen.

I hope this helps.

I'm trying to get video on my tv from the computer. Nothing works. I have tried fn f5 to switch from computer screen to tv, no good. Is there a switch that turns off external video or fn keys?

What computer (make/model) are you using, what OS and what cable between the devices?

Make sure that the port that you are using to connect the computer and the TV is enabled. This may be in the BIOS.

Make sure the input is set to PC (for VGA) or HDMI on the TV. For the HP laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium, I can enter the Display settings by right clicking on the desktop (anywhere there are no running programs or icons). Then choose Graphics Properties. In that window, I can choose the external monitor, dual monitors or the laptop's screen. Then click Apply and confirm the new display options (on the appropriate monitor).

For my desktop, with Win7 Pro, I start with the old monitor is plugged in (power and data) and turned on as well as the TV (DVI to HDMI) and start the computer. Then by right clicking on the display, choose Screen Resolution and then select the TV and the resolution for that. (Since the tv and the old CRT monitor have different screen resolutions, I do not use the dual monitor mode.) Since I know both graphics adapters are active, if I unplugged the data cable for the old monitor, it would probably find the TV without this step.

Please note that some TVs with HDMI input do not accept a computer signal on the HDMI port. In that case, you would need to use the VGA port or a converter.

I hope this helps. I'll provide additional help if you give specifics about your TV and computer.

My monitor keeps saying no signal

Please verify the following: 1. There is power going to all devices. 2. that all cables are securely connected from the monitor to the pc or output device. 3. that the monitor is on the right "channel" if you will. most monitors will have an imput button, usually right next to the power button. It often will look like a rectangle with an arrow going in it. press that a few times and that should cycle it between available modes such as VGA, DVI, Component, HDMI, etc. try each one see if you get a picture. 4. if this is a laptop try using the function key (Fn) and the key which below it in blue has pictures of screens on them. Usually F5/6/7. If none of this works Try a different monitor if you can.
