When I turn my computer on, my HP flat screen, w2207 monitor gives message"no dvi input" and then goes to sleep. Then I have to shut down and restart, it takes about 3-4 times before the monitor connects correctly. What do I do?
I had trouble when i first got this monitor, the analog D-sub, always worked, after a lot of time and effort, the dvi input worked, it has been a couple of years with no problems..now it suddenly stopped working..i have updated the driver, probably just a few weeks before it stopped working. When i select the dvi input...monitor goes to sleep mode..then screen goes black.
I had a similar problem whereas my monitor went to sleep mode after a few minutes. I'm running an HP LP 2065 in dual mode with another HP flat screen. However, I did resolve the issue after resetting the output settings.
How to do that:
right mouse click on the desktop
select graphic options

The "Select" button on the front is supposed to perform this function, usually a monitor will default to whatever mode it was in when it shut down. Alternate presses of the button will switch between the two. I have seen monitors fail to recognize seemingly valid inputs for various reasons, sometimes the computer settings are incorrect and sometimes failure of the monitor video input. I have also seen buttons fail or get stuck on, they also occasionally get contaminated with screen cleaning fluid. If you need more help reply with more specific information about the problem.
I'm guessing you are using a the VGA input of this monitor (the smaller "D" shaped connector with 15 pins) on the back. If not, and you are using the DVI input (larger white connector), then check your PC video output. I've seen this occur with HP monitors when they accidentally get set to "digital" input. Its easy to set that way (even by mistake), but not as easy to reset to analog (VGA). To do that, you'll need to find someone with a DVI output on their video card. Once you connect to a DVI source, the monitir will come on and stay on. You then need to go into the menues of the monitor, find the setting and change it back to "analog". After you do of course, you won't get an image on your monitor until you reconnect to an "analog" (VGA) source.
kkjsr00, You must narrow down the faulty component!!! You must prove what is working and what is not working!! Beg, borrow, steal a "known-good" monitor to prove your pc is operating perfectly and will display the WIN-desktop screen on it. If your pc is A-ok then visit this web blog: http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/ kkjsr00, when strange and weird stuff starts to appear on the screen of "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" back-lit lcd displays the first place I would look at would be the units internal "switch-mode-power-supply/ccfl inverter supply".. No, No, No, unit not going to sleep!!! SMPS/inverter going into SHUTDOWN mode having detected a fault condition with itself or other circuit and is trying to save itself from catastrophic, nonrecoverable failure. e.g. smoke, fire, burn down house, etc. Do some reading in my profile and those of other fixya tech's and you will find more than enough info to help with your problem. Good luck with repair of "flakey" solder joint or bad electrolytic filter capacitor PLAGUE problem. Yes, you sure have a lot of reading to do!! 12fixlouie or old file is louie12fix also try "buddymc" , "budmrtn" profiles for more info.
I stoped the monitor from sleeping by going into the montitor's menu, management, then sleep. Turn on the never allow to sleep mode. We were having some of your mentioned issues with the icons and with the monitor not waking up. This fixed that. Now the computer will go to sleep and when started the monitor comes on instantly.
