Unplug the device. Wait 30 seconds, and re-plug it in. Press the power button.

Sounds like you've got a problem recovering from Hibernate or Sleep mode. This is not uncommon. Suggest disabling one or the other, or searching for known issues and possible solutions.

SOURCE: dell monitor dialog box says monitor is in the power save mode

This error normally occurs when the monitor is not receiving a singanl from the tower. So 1st check the cable connection to the VGA port on the back of the tower and ensure that the cable is securely connected. While looking at the back of the tower, look at the diagnotic LEDs near the PS2 ports marked ABCD. They should all be green If they are not, then there is a problem with the tower and you need to post the indications on the LED (GGAA for example indicates a RAM failure)

If you are using an LCD monitor, you may also need to check the input select button on the monitor if you accidently bump or press the button, then you could change in input selection to DVI and then get this error too.

SOURCE: My Gateway 500s monitor is stuck in power save mode

Try tapping the F8 key while booting the computer, you will get the start up menu, choose safe mode, when you log on, go to the display settings, that is right click on the desktop, properties, screen saver, advanced and make sure that hibernation is off, along with turn off disks or whatever , probably see turn off monitor after XX minutes, I make ours 15 minutes (150 computers and servers), I don't let the disks turn off. Choose always on also, not home/office. Try this and see if these settings help.

SOURCE: how do we turn off the POWER SAVING MODE on the monitor screen?

Try going into your Start Menu then going into your control panel...then clicking on your "power options"....then switching the options to 'always on'..if this does not work..(as it seems you may not be seeing this because the monitor is in power saving mode) try fiddling with the setup option on your monitor and find a possible powersaving mode enabled function and disable it. every monitor is different so I couldn't really help you here...if this doesn't yield results try another monitor to see if it's the monitor having the problems or the computers video card...the video card could very well be the culprit...

Monitor automatically clicks into power saving mode


Laptops often have a function key which switches from laptop only, external monitor only, laptop & external. One of the top number keys, along with the function (fn for short) must be pressed simultaneously to step through these.

Where these keys are at, may differ from laptop to laptop.

Power saving mode


Power saving modes are automatic for some LCD monitors some have setting like after 20 ,30 mins to an hour the computer monitor itself will go into standy saving modes like power led switch indication go to yellow led lighting or the monitor of the lcd screen go blank if ur computer have no pictures for displaying as a screen saver modes.Power saving modes it best for uses if ur computer it on all day long.If u don't touch the mouse or a keyboard the monitor will go in the power saving modes for less electricities consumption for less stress for the monitor electronic components for working to hard for the monitor not to malfuctions sooner or the monitor life cut too short because the computer it on all day.

My flatron L1710S flat screen will not come out of power saving mode. When I turn on the monitor the power button/light is green for a few seconds, the screen indicated "power saving mode", then...


I switch on my PC, ensuring that all cables, leads and power supplies are connected properly. The tower powers up no problems at all. I switch the screen on, the green led lights up, the screen is completely black. A blue box appears centrally on the screen with the text 'power saving mode'. The green led light turns amber and then the screen just goes black.

Please don't suggest going to control panel, as I can't get that far.

PLEASE PLEASE CAN ANYONE SUGGEST ANYTHING give me

No desply monitor aoc crt problem


WHY IS THE POWER LIGHT ON MY MONITOR NOT COMING ON? Make sure the power button is ON and the Power Cord is properly connected to a grounded power outlet and to the monitor.
THE POWER LIGHT OF MY MONITOR IS ON AND THE COLOR IS AMBER, BUT THERE IS NO VIDEO OR DISPLAY. WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF THIS? Your computer may be in screen saver mode, it has instructed the monitor to go to power saving mode, or the the monitor's video cable is not properly connected to the computer. Another possible cause of this is a locked-up or in-operative computer since the computer is what supplies the monitor with all the display data or information. Move the mouse or press a key to de-activate the screen saver or power saving mode. Check the monitor's video cable and make sure it is snugly connected to the computer. To see if the computer is operating properly, press the CAPS LOCK key on the keyboard repeatedly while checking the CAPS LOCK light. If the light is not turning ON & OFF, the computer is non-functional. Contact your computer manufacturer for help.

Computer screen goes into "digital power saving mode"


You should be able to adjust the settings on the monitor to prevent it from going into power save mode, or at least to delay how long it takes before it goes into power save mode. Press the menu button and look for settings that might disable or change power save mode.

Also, 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 newer 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 PC's video card/motherboard, not the monitor.

Hope that helps. Good luck

Will not leave power save


This could be a computer problem more than a monitor problem. To check the monitor disconnect the video cable from the back of the monitor and see if you get any colored lines. If yes then the monitor is file. If even with the video cable disconnnect the monitor shows power save mode it a bad monitor. If you get the lines then you need to troubelshoot the computer. Try powering off the computer and then power it on and tap F8 as the computer restarts. If you get any display it should be a screen with the options safe mode etc. Select safe mode and start the computer up and once at the desktop restart, Let me know if this helps.

Try the monitor if you can on another computer and see if it stays in power save mode. If it does then the monitor is bad.

If you try the monitor on another computer and you get video then that means theres an issue with the original computer.
