Question about Computer Monitors
My monitor was working fine until i unpluged it now has no power. after setting for a while i plug it in and it came on then i turned it off and now no power again. can anyone help me please
The problem is in the "soft switch" technology: On some of Sylvania's newer monitors they have incorporated what is called "soft switch" technology. This allows your ATX power supplied computer to turn your monitor on and off using it?s software controls. Therefore, your monitor?s light will always stay on blinking even when your computer is off. The monitor in normal operation consumes about 80W of power; in the "OFF" state it will be reduced below 8W. The "OFF" mode of the monitor can be controlled by the PC input signal or by pushing the soft-power button to disable the PC signal control for manually turning off the monitor screen. Thus, when the monitor is in soft-power "OFF" mode it still consumes a very small amount of power. For the purpose of making it noticeable to the user that the monitor is in soft-power "OFF" mode, we designed the power indicator to provide for a slow blinking signal (every 2 seconds). If you need to totally turn off the power, then the power cord would have to be unplugged. The same is true of the PC itself, but the PC does not provide for notification while in "OFF" mode.

If it's still under warranty I would call for repair service. It sounds like typical internal power supply trouble that needs electrical troubleshooting.

It's not a "windows" problem. At the bottom of your monitor there should be a 'menu' button. Push the button and use the up and down, right and left arrows on your keyboard to scroll to color. Get the "red" color and adjust it down. You can also scroll through to 'contrast' and adjust that. You don't need to pay a bunch of bucks to have this fixed.

Perhaps your computer is hibernating instead of going into standby which takes a little longer to wake up from. While you are playing plugs and cables it give it enough time to come out of hibernation.
When the computer is in this mode the USB ports turn off which disables keyboard and mouse so the only way to wake up the computer is to press the power button on the computer itself.
One tell tale sign a computer is in hibernation is that the power light on the computer will slowly blink.
I hope this helps.

The power supply in the unit has died. This is a very common problem with this series of monitor after 2-3 years of use. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. Check out our step by step repair guide posted on our site at: www.ccl-la.com Our guide gives parts values and location information as well as how to open the unit up. If you don't feel like doing the repair we also offer repair services, see our web site for details.

Testimonial: "Excellent site"
It seems it is a motherboard battery problem. It most likely is not the monitor which is in "sleep mode", it is the computer itself.
When you cannot get a computer out of "sleep mode" by any other means, typically the cause is that the button-cell-type battery of your computer, which is located on the motherboard, is empty. When your computer detects this battery is empty, it goes into a low-power mode. The solution is to replace the button-cell battery on the motherboard of your computer
