Question about Acer Computers & Internet

No sleep mode on acer monitor

I have an h233h bmid monitor that will not power itself down into power saving mode when the computer is shut off nor when the computer enters sleep mode. Even disconnected from the hdmi cable the monitor will not power itself down. The problem is not with the computer as I attempted the same with two other monitors, and they work as they should. There doesn't seem to be anything in the menu of the monitor that accesses any of the features. The OSD timeout option (I believe from the scant, worthless manual, anyways) only refers to the menu popup on the monitor when you push the menu button. Is there something I'm missing?

SOURCE: check signal message when data cable unplugged. blank screen when data cable plugged

This problem is most likely to be caused by a bent or broken pin on the CRT video cable at the VGA connector, OR, this could also be caused by a damaged VGA connector on the back of the laptop. If neither VGA connector is at fault, the problem could be caused a damaged (kinked) CRT data cable, or internal damage to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop, though I suspect the problem is more likely to be external, and you probably won't have to disassemble the laptop to locate the culprit...

SOURCE: Going to Sleep

Due to the power surge, it is highly possible that the monitor was given a boot by your computer on it's way out.

This will short out a very small transistor inside the monitor on the video board and in turn, then monitor cannot see that there is a signal so goes to sleep.

If you get brave enough to venture inside the screen, then check near the cable input. The transistors are only around 3mm and have 3 legs (two one side and one in the middle on the other).

If you find anything like that burnt (get a magnifying glass) then replacing the board is the easiest option. Just don't be tempted to wipe the board before you look at everything very closely, you may wipe away the tiny bit of evidence you are looking for.

Hope it helps =)

The monitor itself is black, and the power light is changing color from green to yellow to orange and flickering.


Hi there!
Changing the monitor light from green to yellow/orange/amber means that the monitor is in power saving mode. Make sure that the video signal cable is properly connected to the back of the monitor as well as to the computer.
Hope this helps.
