Re: my monitor has no power on

First thing to check is the power supply cord that plugs into the monitor. Sometimes the internal transformers fail. Let me know if you have power to that. The way to check it is to plug the cord into the wall socket and use a multimeter tester set to DC Volts and see if you get voltage to it. Let me know if you get voltage there

My lcd screen switch goes green and a message appears "going to sleep" and the switch light goes yellow

1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor needs replaced.

LG L1730S 17" LCD Monitor

Hi Anand,

You need to check your power options settings and modify it , so that your monitor does not turn off automatically.

If you are using windows xp , go in control panel and then there would be an icon for power options , double click the power options and then you would find settings which read turn off monitor , turn off hard disk etc... select the turn off monitor to never mode or as per your convenience and you would have your problem solved.

Hope this helps.

On-off switch does not function

As in power switch? I don't think they make power switch replacements, you may need to either send it back to Dell (if it's still under warranty), or purchase a new monitor.

It wont power up bro

It is possible that your monitor is on a GFI switch. These switches turn off if they detect a problem that could incur a shock, or if they are getting worn. Check if there is a power outlet in the same room with a red and black switch. If so, push the reset switch, typically the red one.

Your monitor may also be on a switch activated outlet. Is it plugged into the top outlet? See if a wall switch nearby controls the outlet. then try turning on your monitor.

Is the surge protector your monitor is plugged into turned on?

Check the cord on the back of your monitor. It is possible it may be loose. Plug it in all the way.

Some Viewsonic monitors have a power pack that is not inside the monitor case. Check the wiring between it and the wall and between the pack and the monitor for frays.

Power button on view sonic monitor does not power up the monitor; is it repairable

Please check the power cable if it is not loose. Also check the power switch if it is working. The power switch button for your monitor could have been damaged. But yes, it is replaceable.

Monitor shows ''NO SIGNAL''

This is normal. The monitor is telling you it is not getting a signal from the computer, which is true because you've turned off the computer. The monitor power is still on, however. The monitor power is not controlled by the computer power switch. Just turn it off with its power switch after you shut off the computer.
