Techguru2009: First thing disconnect the monitor and start your computer. Then connect the monitor, can you see your operating system? You need to check your bios settings for power save mode. you might need to reset the bios. You can open your case and remove the battery for ten minutes or if you can load the bios setup reset the default settings. Hope this helps.

Power saving mode

Power saving modes are automatic for some LCD monitors some have setting like after 20 ,30 mins to an hour the computer monitor itself will go into standy saving modes like power led switch indication go to yellow led lighting or the monitor of the lcd screen go blank if ur computer have no pictures for displaying as a screen saver modes.Power saving modes it best for uses if ur computer it on all day long.If u don't touch the mouse or a keyboard the monitor will go in the power saving modes for less electricities consumption for less stress for the monitor electronic components for working to hard for the monitor not to malfuctions sooner or the monitor life cut too short because the computer it on all day.

Why no video

a HP monitor. as old as 2006... (o0ps)
read the manual yet? on "power saver modes" turn off them?
i bet you dont know spec, on caps. it's not published by HP ever.
most are +80% - 20% for filters. (ever seen that?)
so a 100uf can read 180uF, or 80uf and is IN SPEC.
but no caps stated, by you, lots there are...
my guess you are
looking for the caps used in china long ago that all failed, every one.
first off you never fully stated whats wrong, in DETAILS.
first have good running pc , with live VGA output (using VGA are you)>? unstated...
the MON, will now live sync, now , Horz and vert, on both pins
the OSD screen now works, if not the monitor is bad.?
or see No/syn, no sig, out of range or no input errors.
Monitor Going to Sleep
see page 34? in your manual yet?
and page 31, turn of power saver ?
if OSD is dead, say so first.

OSD can be locked. push mon menu button for 10sec, now unlocked
then go to OSD screen
Power-Saver Feature
When the monitor is in normal operating mode, the Power li
ght is aqua-white or green (depending on model) and the
monitor uses the normal watts of power. For power us
age, refer to "Technical Specifications" (Appendix B).
The monitor also supports a power-saver mode that is
controlled by the computer. When the monitor is in the
reduced-power state, the monitor screen is
blank, the backlight is off, and the
Power light is amber. The monitor uses
minimum power. When the monitor is "awakened," a brief
warm-up period occurs before the monitor returns to
normal operating mode. The energy-saving reduced power stat
e activates if the monitor does not detect either the
horizontal sync signal or the vertical sync signal. The powe
r-saver feature must be activated on your computer for this
feature to work, << read that carefully?

turn this off ? first?

Display fails after a couple of seconds

Connecting a different computer that works to it doesn't fix the problem(what does that mean, its not CLEAR at all)
my guess is you meant the new PC fails on this bad monitor , too.

ok the monitor fails on PC #2, sure....
so the monitor is bad, why ask for help, buy a new monitor.
why spend $100 to fix it when new is %50

your not going to fix any monitor, here, on fixya,
but there is one thing to check the very old monitors from compaq
ive answered this 4 times here now.
has menu botton
see that? push that now on the monitor
see that menu..
? one menu selection , has silly horrible, power saver timer on it
and a RTC clock that keeps time of day, (pc can be OFF)
if the power saver is on , get it off now, and if paranoid set the clock.
id set it. so its double safe, see?
this happened back in 2002.
i read you users guide for you its a 2001. oops, its got the above BS.

read page 18 and all related pages to this. clock and saver.
page 18 there, page 16 real.
if it one , the INANE thing will go to saver at odd times.
later this was removed for VESA , update, remote sleep rules. and time.

Compaq w17q monitor keeps going on and off how can i fix it?


1. check the power cords- make sure all are snug.
2. check and make sure no pins are bent in the cord to the computer
3. make sure that the monitor is not in auto-power save. Or in auto off mode. For example- is the light amber or green.
4. finally, make sure that your settings on your computer are not set to power off your monitor- as in a blank screen saver, power save or hibernate

Sound like maybe video card has gone bad. You can get a cheapo video card at your local pc guys for around 20-30 bucks. If you install the card and hook up cable it will override the bad card (might be on motherboard) and should work
