When I boot up my desk top with monitor E197 FP LCD stays black takes a few times to go


Hello,

This is a common problem with the E197 units. The problem is caused by a failure of the filter capacitors on the power supply board, they are not holding a charge like they should and it takes several power cycles to get them charged up so the monitor turns on. The E197 uses the same power supply that the E177 uses. Here is a link to a repair guide for the E177 with video disassembly and repair instructions that will help you get your monitor going again.

What would cause monitor to show white screen when pc is booted up?


Will the monitor go into it's own config screen ? If not, it could be defective. You said it displayed a white screen so it is not likely that the brightness control is turned way down.

Check that the monitor is connected correctly to the system. Try another monitor that is known to be good. Does the monitor work on another system, say a laptop or another desktop?

Windows will boot up without a monitor and if you are running any servers on it, you can try to connect over your LAN. If the computer takes it's IP address from a local router, you can check the router status screens to see if the address is in use. That would prove Windows is running and that the monitor could be the problem.

Used monitors are not expensive these days so they are easy to replace. You should have multiple monitors anyway. This is the 21st century, not the twentieth when screen size revealed your pay grade in the organization.

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!

Screen Turn's on.You seen Acer load up Splash Screen for less then a min, Stay on until Windows Xp Load up screen then goes into sleep mode. Encontered same problem when I connected Xbox360 with HDMI to...


  • Hello chaleebradsh, the "Monitor" as well the Computer have "Power Saving Modes," [Sleep, ScreenSavers, and Hibernation]; so what you want to do is "Change the way the Computer / Monitor Sleeps!" From the Desktop Screen, click on the "Start Button," next in the [Start Search Window], type: power. In the next [window] that opens, you should see, from your point of view; a "list" in the (left column) "Change when the computer sleep, the wording may be different, but it will be clear enough. Now all you have to do is change the way the Computer and Monitor "Sleep, or Turn-off." If the Monitor have its own "settings;" just find them by the [button on the monitor], and do the same thing as above; but I'm sure the computer will take care of both. "I hope this information is of help; thanks for using FixYa, paul7of9"

How do i turn off power save mode using the screen buttons


I don't know if there is a monitor with a function button to turn off the power save mode.
As far as I know the power save mode of the monitor can be found in the display setting of the windows..

Anyway... If you want to turn off the power save mode of the monitor via windows display setting then here is what you need to do:

On control panel, double click display settings.. click the screen saver tab... on the lower portion Press the "power" button.. Select power schemes tab.. Change the settings of" turn the monitor off" to "never"
Click apply and then OK..

Hope it gave you an idea..

Hp pavilion f1703 flashes on and off. Tried pushing F8 for 30 seconds - no result.


have you checked the power connecter at the back of the monitor?

is it the whole PC that is flashing on and off or JUSTr the monitor?

the F8 key when turning on a Windows based PC, will only take you to a screen to choose how to start windows, in Normal mode, safe mode, or commandline mode.

none of this helps a flickering screen.

try and change out the data cable (VGA cable, blue screw in plug) and the power cable if possible.

Power light is green but screen is black


Do you get anything at all on the screen--like white writing at startup?
Even if your video drivers have become corrupt, they are not used until Windows actually starts.
It very well could be the flourescent backlight has gone bad. Can you adjust the brightness/contrast at all to see anything?
If those controls do nothing for you, then you're looking to get a new monitor.
Your monitor does have a sort of power supply for the backlight and that could be bad, but if you're not into taking it apart, then you are far better off buying a new monitor.

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.

Digital power saving mode


Are you sure someone hasn't changed the power setting in windows. I've seen similar tricks pulled by so called mates. :-) If windows is OK then check the manual for the monitor and if you still can't crack it take it for a ride to the repair shop. It is under warranty after all. BMW
