Question about IBM P 260 (Black) 21 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

1 Answer

The Monitor not works after the Standby Mode or Switch off

The Monitor IBM P260 (IBM 6552) not works after a Standby Mode or Switch off. Meanwhile the Green Power LED is blinking ever. After switch off for a long Time the Monitor works properly until the next Standby Mode (no in all cases!). Is this a problem with the IC´s 651 + 652 ? I have a Service Manual with Schematics.

If you have not tried yet, pick a can of freeze-it, or other. Gain access, safely power up and when the monitor goes into standby, hit the area and cool down the IC's. If they are overheating, this has a good chance of bringing them back and identifying your problem. If so, look at better heatsinks, reapply new paste, or install a muffin fan, or seek better ventilation.
Heat is the enemy of all IC's.

I am try to hook my IBM R51 Thinkpad to an external monitor, but the monitor in standby mode.

You have to hold the Fn key down & press the F7 key, then release the Fn key.
This will activate the external display port, & you will get the display on the external monitor.

After installing Windows 7 on a Thinkpad R40 I lost standby mode. Standby mode was working correctly under Windows XP but doesn't seem to be available under Windows 7. What can I do to get Standby back?

You will need to download the motherboard drivers for you computer from the IBM website. you can get them from here...

It appears that there is not any drivers available for Windows 7...or even Vista for your computer so they might not work.

My monitor go to "standby" and i can't get it on again for a few minutes if i change resolution (starting an old game) or restarting my monitor. In the "standby mode" the light is yellow, but blinking.

this is because the game is changing the resolution and frequency of the video card to make it compatible with the software the game uses to run. The easiest way around this is to attach a different monitor long enough to change the settings within the game after it loads up. Find a configuration that works when u switch to the other monitor and you will be good to go. Dont worry, ive had this problem before too and there is nothing wrong with your monitor. an easy way is to go to the display options in windows and view the current resolution and frequency and try to match those with the game, but i can be sure from the nature of this question that you have your resolution set too high for the card to automatically render the video, your gonna have to cut way back to your lowest resolution and it should at least start up long enough to make adjustments and these adjustments will be permanent until you personally revert the setting. Good Luck And Please Rate This Post!!!!!

Dim Laptop screen

It could either be your power settings dimming it (battery saver mode), or more likely when you replaced the screen, you replaced the backlight with the one that came with it. The replacement backlight is probably not as good as the one you had. You can try putting your other backlight in it (the backlight is that circuit board near the hinge that you plug in when you switch the screens out). Since it's going in and out, I'd check the power settings first though.

Ok, I want this off my screen. If it is stuck in standby mode as you say, press and hold the power button until the computer goes "dead." Then turn it back on. If this doesn't work, unplug it and take the battery out for a while.

Test the monitor on another computer , if it shows any display of windows then you have bad vidoe card , but if monitor does not show anything on another computer then the monitor has died .

Monitor stays in standby from startup

Try it on a different computer. Standy usually indicates not getting a signal from the video card and then it goes into standy. If it works on a different machine or laptop, check your video card.

Green color dot appears when moniotor switched off

I would first verify your system power settings (in Windows XP go to control panel, power options, then verify that nothing is set that could activate your monitor to a standby mode) - other versions of windows have something very similar. If all of these settings are correct, then unless the monitor is not working as required when switched on, i would recommend just leaving it be, possibly just take the time to unplug the monitor power lead instead of just switching it off. If however you feel you must fix this problem, try: for this model of monitor you will need the serial or FRU number in order to define the exact model.
