If it doesn't turn off by holding the power button down for 10 seconds, then it cannot be turned off by the power button alone, like most modern lcd monitors. Most modern monitors goes into standby mode. To completely cut power, you must unplug the power cable.
I've enclosed a link to the install manual for reference. Samsung SyncMaster P2050 User Manual Page 7
1. Turn Off Monitor by pressing power button on LCD 2. Shut down computer 3.
Unplug power cable from LCD, Once power cable is unplugged from LCD,
press and hold down the power button on LCD for 15 seconds
4. Unplug the power cable from the back of Desktop Computer and Hold down the power button on desktop computer for 15 seconds
5. Plug the power cables back into the LCD and Desktop Computer
6. Power on computer and then power on LCD, it should work
It doesnt sound like a windows problem. A simple test for this is to unplug the vga or hdmi cable from the monitor then turn it on if it has power it should say no signal. Also try either another power cable to the monitor or change the fuse. Hope this helps.
I love this one. I've actually done this many times before and have been successful.
1. Turn the computer off and unplug the power cord from the back of the tower.
2. Press and hold the power button for about 3 seconds while the computer is unplugged (this drains the remaining power from the capacitors on the motherboard).
3. Plug the computer back in and turn it on.
If that does not work, follow steps 1 and 2 again, but this time:
3. Open the computer while it is unplugged and unplug the power supply from the motherboard then hold down the power button again for 3 seconds. (You may also want to take the RAM out and put in back in)
4. Plug everything back in and turn the computer on.
caligrl2007, Sorry to hear you are having problem with your monitor. When very strange things start to happen with an LCD monitor, the first place I would look would be the "switch-mode-power-supply" inside of the unit. If unit does same thing when connected to KNOWN GOOD pc, then a technician will need to investigate the SMPS. 12fixlouie
Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on? If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps. If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.
Click start, then then control panel and click on the power management icon. When you see the screen, look at the power management "scheme" and pick the appropriate setting. I assume that what you are experiencing is what's known as "Power management" . In order to achieve an "Energy Star" rating, the computer must shut off various components to conserve power. If you don't want to have your monitor shut down, select never from the options in the Power Management screen. Thanks for using Fixya.com
Use a reset sequence on the monitor-
1. turn off monitor
2. unplug power
3. plug power back in, holding down the last button on the left, then push
the power button to turn back on and off three times, holding on the third try
until it comes on- hold for ten seconds and release; the monitor should work
