Question about LG L1730S 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor doesn't work

When I turn on my pc, the power light of the monitor is green for ~3 secs. Then it goes amber and the monitor displays "power saving mode" and it goes black. When I disconnect the monitor from the main unit the light goes green again and the monitor displays "searching for signal" or something like that. I again connect the monitor to the main unit and the monitor goes back to the power saving mode. I checked all the switches and the power cords, everything is ok. HELP! (F1, F1, F1!)

    I just bought a 17" LG Flatron, attached my toshiba laptop via the VGA cable supplied, get the message 'Power saving mode' monitor switches itself off, unplug cable get message 'Check signal cable'. Tried my eeepc 901 same thing. Not the cable as i used that to attach but laptops to my other tv via VGA. What a frustrating piece off kit

I'd try this monitor on a spare computer. It sounds like the video card (motherboard integrated or otherwise)is not putting out any video information or missing sync signals. The monitor must receive these signals or it will go into standy/sleep mode. If the computer has integrated (on motherboard) video, check your bios settings to see if it is properly enabled. If it has a slot video board, then try a different video board. Your present board might be dead. Another possibility is a bad cable connection. check the connectors for bent pins. Assuming the connector is the standard HDB-15, it is easy to bend a pin over.

Monitor Acer Problem


I agree it isn?t the monitor but I would suspect the video card you are connecting it to or the PC itself. Generally if a monitor doesn?t detect a video signal it will go into hibernation mode, typically displaying a no signal warning and changing the LED color from green to amber. When you start the computer is anything displaying at all? Are you sure the PC is powering up and booting?

Monitor doesnt come on , but the power light goes from amber to green. then comes on after 20-30mins maybe.


Maybe update your display drivers. PC appears to be slow.
Make sure you don't have a bunch of apps that auto start.
Do you hibenate your PC?
Same issue if you connect monitor to another PC?
If issue follows you to a different PC it says monitor. If it doesn't it says the first PC (that monitor is currently connected to) had a cpu/memory or a driver issue.

Good luck
