Hi,

Normally the orange light should turn green when everything is a go. Often the problem of orange light is not really the monitor but the PC. There is not video output from the video card and the monitor in sensing this assumes that the cable is unplug and thus does not switch on (green).

The sure way of determining which is at fault is to try and use a different monitor to your PC (as well as the cable). Should problem persist, then it is the PC that would need to be checked. On the other hand, if the PC works with another monitor, then you have just verified that indeed the monitor is defective.

Should you have verified that it is the PC, suspect would either be the video card and/or the memory sticks. In some instances cleaning with a pencil eraser the little gold pins of either the video card and/or the memory sticks helps.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Why has my monitor turned orange. model dylm19r6 computer monitor


If you mean the light on your monitor is orange instead of green, it means the monitor is not receiving data from the computer.
Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

When computer off monitor displays orange light.when i turn computer on green light briefly on than goes out. Monitor remains black'


Hi,
This is not always a problem with the monitor. It could also be caused by a faulty display card in your computer. Try plugging your monitor into a working computer to determine where the problem lies.

Best wishes,

Unlikely unless you discharged a large static shock into the connector as you were doing this. I have never seen a monitor or computer video port damaged by connecting the cable while power is on.

Try unplugging the power cable to the monitor for 10min or more and then reconnect and see if it starts to work.

Power indicater light is orange instead of green and computer screen is black


This usually indicates no signal from the video card. If this happens at boot and no POST screen display is seen, try checking the connections between the monitor and the video card, there may be a loose cable. Inspect the ends of the cable for bent or damaged pins. Or try swapping the connection cable.

If this is happening after the post screen, then you have a video driver problem, which can be resolved by booting into safe mode, uninstalling your video card drivers and restarting into normal mode.

Hope this helps,

Monitor dead


Check your power cables properly and make sure it is attached. Check your power button, maybe you have pressed the wrong one.

My monitor doesn't display anything, though it's receiving input from the CPU. I know that input is being received because the monitor status light is green, and times out (turns orange).


Same thing happened to me! Went to bed last night, everything was fine. Woke up today, orange light came on, no display, slight flickering seen, but that's it. Cables and cords are fine, tried unplugging and plugging it back in, NOTHING. Totally dead. I'm guess off to buy a new one today. Typical made-in-China JUNK.

Screen went blank and orange light is on


fiona_sheeha, If ACER warranty service not an option, then unit will need local tech to troubleshoot unit's power supply/inverter circuit for possible COMMON and repairable printed circuit board fix. You must read more of my fixya profile and visit the web links you find there so you will know and understand what ALL your options are!!! Some units require less than $5 in parts to refurbish them to working status. Your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" backlit LCD monitor isn't any different than any other brand of monitor in it's basic operating principles!! I hope this helps. 12fixlouie

Screen Goes Blank


Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

No display


if your monitor is not connected to a pc, then it cannot find a vga signal input and therefore go into power saving mode, which is indicated by the orange light, but as soon as you connect to the pc and power on the light will go green and the monitor will power up.
