Moniter transitions to LG logo

LG Flatron W2234S Monitor (purchased day after Thanksgiving)
Monitor goes black and displays LG Logo with an Energy Star icon next to it for about 3 seconds then returns to normal. The transition occurs at varying intervals but appears that something may be wrong with the monitor. Currently blinking about every couple minutes.

It displays normally otherwise.

Check the cable and make sure it is plugged in securely at both the monitor and PC. If the cable is connected properly, then the problem must be in the monitor itself. You could try setting the input mode manually on the monitor - the default should be auto - you could set it to VGA or DVI whichever your case is and see if it helps.

Hello, I have a LG flatron w2234s and a week ago the screen started to shut down on its own while i'm using the computer or when it goes to sleep mode. The screen gives me the LG sign and just turns off...


First try it on another Pc, you'll know the root of the problem. If there's no problem on another pc then the problem would be with your video card/motherboard. If the problem is still the same on another Pc, then your monitor has internal problem. You better call up a technician, he/she will check it for you, must be Pcb problem. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

LG W2234S restarting every 3 minutes


I will assume that you have already try this monitor with other PC with the same result, and also try new VGA cable with the same result, otherwise you will have to open it up and o some inspection inside the monitor.
Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, falied inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further.

LG Flatron L177WSB-how would I use my newly purchased unit after switching it on, LG logo appears followed by the Power Saving Mode it all goes black on the screen.


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

No picture lg flatron w2234s blinking blue light


Hi My screen developed exactly the same problem. It appears to be a hardwear problem associated with the screen it's self. continuity test is ok on the lead so I took it back to the shop under warranty and hey presto, the replacement works. I don't know what the problem is but there are a number of other folks on another thread with the same problem and their entries are dated May 09 too.  Dave
