Question about LG L1953H-BF (Black) Monitor

Open Question

Power saving mode

I tested the cable.
I can use the monitor on my notebook.
I can use my pc with a different monitor.
When I connect the pc to the monitor all I get is a message on the monitor saying "Power Saving Mode" for a second and then the screen goes black and the power indicator turns amber.

I didn't have to install any drivers on my notebook and there were none pre-installed.

Any ideas?

SOURCE: monitor doesn't work

I'd try this monitor on a spare computer. It sounds like the video card (motherboard integrated or otherwise)is not putting out any video information or missing sync signals. The monitor must receive these signals or it will go into standy/sleep mode. If the computer has integrated (on motherboard) video, check your bios settings to see if it is properly enabled. If it has a slot video board, then try a different video board. Your present board might be dead. Another possibility is a bad cable connection. check the connectors for bent pins. Assuming the connector is the standard HDB-15, it is easy to bend a pin over.

SOURCE: my LG flatiron W1943TB turns on, says analog power

Hi erin mckinle,
That is probably it's, uh, analog power saving mode. When the screen goes black and the power button flashes, make some mouse gestures or hit some keys that would not affect anything (try spacebar). That should bring up the screen. If you think it goes into power saving mode too fast, go to Control Panel --> Power Options, and change the values. Hope this helps.

When I turn on the monitor, I get an error message: "Warning PC entering power saving mode", then it turns off.

Unplug your dekstop from the electricity then press and hold the power button on your desktop for couple minutes with out no power cable attached to it then let go of the power button then connect your desktop back to electrical outlet and press power button once that should give you display once it turns back on you can go into your power saving options and turn off power saver mode as its conflicting with your LCD sometimes this can occur if you have Norton antivirus installed
if after doing the power drain and still get same message then you can try using a different monitor if you have one for a test.
this issue is not with your monitor but with the PC has been stuck in sleep mode but the power drain should solve your problem.

Stuck in power save mode

stlmeuzyk, Internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"ccfl-inverter-supply" will probably need to be refurbished (repaired). Use Dell warranty first if valid option! Try monitor on different pc or verify your pc is working properly with old, but known-good monitor. If your E228WFP unit is still not working then you or qualified electronics technician will need to tear-down monitor to evaluate and repair the ac to dc power supply printed circuit board. Before you do anything read my fixya profile to learn flashlight test that every ccfl back-lit lcd monitor owner should know how to do and interpret the results of test. The basic design and operation of your E228WFP isn't any different than any other brand!!! Read the older solutions in my profile and follow the links you find there. Then do additional comment if need more info. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

LG LCD Monitor won't exit Power Saving Mode

Does your desktop/PC display show anything before the monitor goes into power save mode? If nothing comes up, its possible that you have a loose VGA connection or that your video card/motherboard are defective in some ways. Try using a different monitor.

If the other monitor works fine with your computer, try changing/lowering the screen resolution. If in XP right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust the resolution. If in Vista/Win7, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there. Then check and see if your LG monitor works on it.

If the other monitor also doesn't show any display, most likely the problem is either with your video cable or your PCs video card/motherboard, not the monitor.

Hope that helps. Good luck

"power saving mode"

Have you connected and then power on PC? does this monitor works any other PC? Is old monitor works in your PC? Some models of monitor has menu functin from what type of connector use to recieve data but they also automatically adjast it. Try to find if your model has any. If PC works in others and all connections is all right its better to bring your monitor back to shop.

My new Dell flat screen monitor is blank and posting a message - entering power save mode- ... when I restart it briefly displays the Dell logo and other normal display at normal startup then switches to...

You'll need to troubleshoot a little. SOmething may be broken, but you'll need to find out what. 1: Try the monitor on another computer, see wether it will work on that one. If it doesn't, the monitor's broken and you're probably going to need a new one. 2: If the monitor does work, put it back, but now use another cable to connect it to the PC. If that fixes it, your cable was broken. 3: If not, you could try to switch the graphics card in the PC with another one. Do not attempt that, however, unless you know what you're doing. If you don't, get someone you know to do it for you, or take it to a computer shop. If the PC will boot with another graphics card, the old one is broken. 4: If not, it may be your motherboard that's broken. Repeat step 3 with it. These steps should fix your problem. If not, please post back here. Regards, Yannick.

Flatron LG monitor safe mode

Your monitor goes to Power Saving Mode when the signal it is receiving is not correct. In all probability this is not a problem of the monitor itself, rather you should check the connections and the computer the monitor it's connected to. For example you could try a different RGB cable and try it in a different computer.

Monitor flashes POWER SAVING MODE.. monitor dosnt turn on

A quick Google tells me this is a VGA analog interface monitor. Have you another monitor to test with, to see if the problem is the PC or the monitor. If another monitor works (esp. a CRT) your L1730s may still be fine. Set the refresh rate of the graphics adapter to 60HZ. then test your LCD again. Some monitors just blank the screen when they get a refresh rate they cannot handle. p.d.
