Question about Computer Monitors

1 Answer

Monitor keeps shutting down...

After sitting idly, the monitor naturally shuts down. Usually the movement of the mouse is enough to power it back up...lately it's not. Sometimes a "no signal" message flashes for a second but it doesn't come on. About a half hour or so later, the monitor comes back up by itself.Also, sometimes when I'm on the computer, the monitor just goes black. It'll flicker a bit like there's a loose connection and come back eventually not losing the page I was on. I've checked the connections and they are fine. HELP!Thanks, Mark

Computer required restarting due to problems with mouse. Once computer was restarted gateway monitor would not work


Not enough information. Please describe any monitor activity when
you turn it on, do this while the computer is still off, unplug monitor, then
plug back in. It should start automatically, then show the gateway logo, then
go blank for several seconds, then show no input signal box, then shut down on its
own. If it fails to do this it is probably that the power printed circuit board
is failing, not delivering the proper power to the main board and/or the back
lamps. One can have this board repaired inexpensively by a qualified electronic
technician.

HP f2105 monitor going into sleep mode on it's own


Does it do the same when you use this monitor with other PC, new VGA cable, just need to narrow down the problem first before start taking the monitor apart.
See pictures of what usually goes bad (mostly failed capacitors) with monitors:

How do I get a monitor out of hibernation mode? It is not responding and did not reset when I rebooted.


Try using the power button, which usually takes the computer out of hibernation. Also, the mouse and keyboard can sometimes wake the computer from hibernation as well.
If the computer is still stuck in a hibernated state, hold the power button in for about 5 seconds so the computer fully shuts down and power it back on.
Good Luck!

Monitor goes to sleep and won't wake up


Yeah, im not sure about how to fix the problem with it shutting down like that, but one option is to go under your control panel and taking off the sleep function, or putting it on a 4 hour timer so that doesnt go into sleep mode anymore. However, the problem is not your monitor but your computer. Id just take the sleep mode off, there is no need to have it on.

ViewSonic Monitor has trouble to wake up after been shut down?


Ok sounds to me like a power supply problem.. this a a fairly common symptom. I suggest that as a temporary fix you set the monitor to NOT turn the power off to the monitor in sleep mode if possible, in your power settings for the monitor.
