I'VE BEEN HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM FOR MONTHS - SOMETIMES THE MONITOR WILL BE FINE FOR A FEW DAYS AND OTHERS IT WILL NOT COME BACK ON NO MATTER WHAT I DO. HOWEVER, I FINALLY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM AND THUS A SOLUTION AND IT ACTUALLY DIDN'T COST ME ANYTHING.

MY CPU DOES NOT HAVE A VGA OUTPUT SO I WAS GOING TO GO BUY A VGA/DVI CABLE ADAPTER BUT INSTEAD I FOUND A VGA/DVI ADAPTER IN THE BOX THAT MY COMPUTER CAME IN. I ATTACHED IT TO THE DVI CABLE THAT I ALREADY HAVE AND PLUGGED THE DVI END INTO MY CPU (SINCE IT ONLY HAS A DVI AND NO VGA OUTPUT) AND THEN THE VGA ADAPTER END INTO MY MONITOR AND WA LA... IT WORKS NOW AND HAVEN'T HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT GOING TO SLEEP.

WHAT I IMAGINE IS HAPPENING IS THAT THE DVI OUTPUT ON THE MONITOR IS FAULTY - EITHER FROM THE FACTORY OR THE PINS HAVE BEEN DAMAGED SO MY CABLE WAS NOT WORKING CORRECTLY. IN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS WRONG, I BOUGHT A BRAND NEW DVI CABLE AND IT STILL DIDN'T WORK SO I KNEW IT WAS NOT THE CABLE. THAT NEW CABLE WAS RETURNED TO THE STORE FOR A REFUND!

    Actually, had to install a new video card to my CPU a few months later. But, it was only about $70 instead of hundreds to replace my computer and the countless hours involved in setting things up again on a new system. East install, took old video card out and clicked new one in.

I started a thread on my own forum because there is a lot of discussion about this on many forums with no responses from HP and no one seems to mention that they got a replacement despite the massive problem that it is. It is out of order and I don't doubt for a second that HP knows the length of life of the components in their monitors. All of these things are tested and your talking about components used for years. They know the score by now.

Emachine ET1161-05 desktop...monitor keeps going to sleep...comes back on only if i move the mouse...very annoying, i don't want my monitor to ever go into sleep mode...pls help


This may be something that Windows (or the computer is telling Windows) to do. Everyone wants to reduce the power consumption in the computer, so be default your monitor may be going into 'sleep' mode and turning off.
1) To change this, RIGHT click on the Windows desktop. 2) When the menu appears, select PROPERTIES, then select the SCREEN SAVER tab. 3) There are 2 things to check here. First at the top, make sure that your screen saver is selecting something beside BLANK. This will cause the monitor to blank out and appear to have turned off. 4) The second thing to check is the POWER settings. Click the POWER button at the bottom on the screen. 5) Now, you will see 2 rows of power options, one for when the computer is plugged in (which is all the time with your desktop) and the other is when on batteries. We're concerned with the PLUGGED IN settings. 6) Make sure the TURN OFF MONITOR setting is set for NEVER. This will ensure that your monitor never turns off on you. 7) Now click OK and OK and now your monitor shouldn't turn off on you.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!

HPW1907 monitor goes to sleep and says no input signal. Why? How do we fix this problem?


Hello.

Your monitor is not getting the input signal from your computer. Check to see if the cable from the monitor to your computer is snug.

Test this monitor on another computer, if possible, to see if your monitor or computer is the problem.

Hope these suggestions help.

Monitor in sleep mode


This problem could be caused by windows or the monitor .You need to hook up your monitor to another computer and see if you get the same response. If you do check and see in the owners manual if there is a control for power management.Find the control and try to adjust it, or turn it off. If all this does not work than you need to take the monitor in for servicing. If the monitor works,you may have a problem with the computer bios or windows itself. Check all power management controls in the bios and window settings and see if you can find the problem.Check the Microsoft website for this problem with your operating system and a solution. Hope this helps.

Monitor stuck in sleep mode


It will do this when it's not getting a video signal from the computer. Make sure that the signal cable is firmly plugged in at both ends. Also verify that the computer is actually starting up. The monitor may not be getting a signal because the computer isn't sending any.

LCD monitor goes blank


It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.

Try this.

Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)
