I've done quite a bit of research on this and the problem is with the LG monitor. For some reason the DVI and HDMI ports have a history of going bad and when this happens, the monitor goes into "power save" mode because it thinks that there is no signal coming into the monitor. Other than getting a new monitor (which I wouldn't suggest) the only other way to fix it that I know of is to use the VGA input on the monitor. In order to do this you will have to have an XBOX 360 VGA HD cable. You can get them from Amazon.com for $32.49 with free shipping. Here is the link:

For faster results (which I'm sure your son would love) you can also purchase this cable from Best Buy if you have one close to you for $39.99 plus tax. Here is the link:

Purchase this cable and your son will be on his way to gaming again in no time! Sorry for the problems you are having with your monitor but this will get everything taken care of for you. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi,

this is a resolution compatibility issue

the xbox gives out a fine display that the LCD can no longer sustain, thus setting self to power save mode. to resolve this, set the resolution to a lower value like 1280 x 1024 or 1400 x 900 just to refresh the display, or you can use it to a regulat computer for the mean time.

if this did not work download the latest video drivers for the xbox and that will surely solve the issue.

regards,

voodoo

it is possible the monitor is going out


another possiblity is monitor setting--when the monitor comes from the factory they put setting in for the monitor, & you have to go in & adjust them to what you want
Windows 7
Go to control panel
Go to hardware & sound
Go to power options
Select a power plan
Which ever one you pick--click change power settings--to what you want the settings to be
And go to each power plan so the settings will be the same
Each time click save

For windows xp
Go to the control panel
Go to appearance & themes
Go to screen saver--at the bottom you will see monitor power--to adjust monitor power settings & save energy click the power button
The menu will say power option prosperities
Turn off monitor setting--click what you want it to be
Turn off hard disk settings--put what you want
Turn off system standby--put what you want

If this monitor works with your lap top or the other PC (not your son's PC). Then your son PC video card may not be sending out the video signal so the monitor goes into power save mode.
Did you try another monitor with your son's PC yet?
Does the PC has plug in video card or it is integrated with the mother board, you can also try reseating the card and the RAM.

Flatron monitor


You need to check the monitor cable if it is correctly connected to the motherboard port. If the analog display or no signal it means the monitor cable should bot connected. If you have a video card in your motherboard you can plug your monitor cable to the external video card.

Monitor shuts off during boot. Let the machine boot full up, hit the power button, the monitor flashes windows for a split second, and goes back to power saving mode


Hey there Celius,

Chances are the 'Refresh Rate' somehow got set too high for the monitor. On flatscreens , the result is a black screen.

If you have an old monitor (crt type) hook that up temporarily and reboot.
  • Right Click the Desktop
  • Click Properties
  • Click Settings
  • Click Advanced
  • Click Monitor
  • Lower the refresh rate or set at optimal
  • Check the box 'Hide refresh rates this monitor can't display'
Shutdown, Switch back monitors and try it now.

Good luck
Mike
