This is called Burn In or LCD residue. Normal wear on monitors. To save this from happening quicker, when the monitor is not being used, just press the monitor power button and shut the screen down instead of using the screen saver. You can still leave the computer running, when your ready to use it again just turn on the power button to the monitor.

and had a sleep mode inside, (problem 2) sure.

so with PC turned on, the push the menu key

it is not compatible with NEWER PCs at all.

LG L222WS half bottom screen white

There is a problem with the capacitors in your monitor. This is a normal problem these days with flat screen monitors, I am trying to find out why it is always like tha. This will normally be caused by improper shut down or power fluctuations in your monitor. Capacitrs in your monitor are responsible for holding down the power from the supply, fr the proper display on your monitor. If a capacitor is damaged, or buldged, it no longer holds power long enough for your display, and that is why your screen goes black after a few seconds. This can be solved by opening up your monitor, using a sharp and flat object, opening it starting from the bottom working your way up until the cover is completely out. You will notice finger-like clips that are holding the two covers together. Once you are done, check on the circut board where you connect the power cable.... that is where you are going to find the damaged capacitor(s). You can identify them by noting their bulged head or if there is any liquid coming out of it. Before you replace the, take note of the polarity (+) and (-) so that whenever you replace with the new one it is in the same direction. This will fix up your problem. Note: make sure you let a Computer Technician to do this for you, unless you can do it yourself without damaging the monitor. Thank you

Flashing screen when i first turn on my SamsungSyncMaster 2232 bw

I had a similar problem with my LCD computer screen. I took it apart and noticed a capacitor that was raised up on the flat end and appeared to be leaking a substance. Replaced it with a similar capacitor and works fine, for three years now.

it is a time clocked feature, and a pain to use on modern PC.

Hp w2007 blank screen

we have here , like 1000s of black screens posted here now.
all the same all with CCFL lamps. that die. same solution.
older monitors have a power saver mode inside it,
push the front button called menu, then see OSD menu
then find and turn off power saver.
if the OSD fails to show up; the CCFL are dead.
this monitor was made in 2007, and 2010 is the starting year
for ending the usage of CCFL (starting on large screens working to small)

im reading your manual for you now, free.
page 4 tells you it has CCFT (T mean Tube, L means lamp)
same same.

now lets look at the page on saver. power

page 7, (its on by default ) oops !

turn saver OFF
see next page 8 and turn DDC ON.
see sleep timer and turn that all off.
if you push factory reset, it the problem begins again.
bad. for you.

you can in fact download the whole manual.
for free. here. the site on the internet in this regard.

all old HP monitors are made for old PC 2000 year.
your PC is not 17 years old i bet.
so all this old saver stuff is now WRONG.
(all this is old school Energy Star , malarkey, )
