SOURCE: Samsung 172N 17" LCD monitor blacks out seconds at a time with increasing frequency and eventually displays scrambled graphics until system restart.

The problem I have is that when we connect the screen it wiorks fine then blacks out after 5-40min
It then flickers on and off iregularly and every now and then shows distortion and eventually just blacks out

I have two 172N monitors and both now show the same symptoms

We have used different VGA cables and different computers in different locations all with the same result

There is no external influence that we know

SOURCE: i have a samsung 17''

The message says that the monitor doesn't receives signal - which is normal. Since the problem appears only after you plug in the cable in means that the problem is located there - something is wrong with your pc, most likely the video card has died.

If you would like help we would need the DTC - diagnostic trouble code .Is their a Reduced Engine Power Mode message showing on the instrument cluster ?
Reduced Engine Power Mode
When the PCM detects a problem with the throttle actuator control (TAC) system the PCM enters one of the following Reduced Engine Power Modes:
• Acceleration Limiting--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however the vehicle acceleration is limited.
• Limited Throttle Mode--The control module will continue to use the accelerator pedal for throttle control, however the maximum throttle opening is limited.
• Throttle Default Mode--The control module will turn off the throttle actuator.
• Forced Idle Mode--The control module will perform the following actions:
- Limit engine speed to idle by positioning throttle position, or by controlling fuel and spark if throttle is turned off.
- Ignore accelerator pedal input.
• Engine Shutdown Mode--The control module will disable fuel and de-energize the throttle actuator.
IF you do not know this your best bet would be to take to a qualified repair shop .
DTC P0506
DTC P0507
The throttle actuator control (TAC) motor is controlled by the powertrain control module (PCM). The DC motor located in the throttle body drives the throttle plate. In order to decrease idle speed, the PCM commands the throttle closed reducing air flow into the engine and the idle speed decreases. In order to increase idle speed, the PCM commands the throttle plate open allowing more air to pass the throttle plate. If the actual idle RPM does not match the desired idle RPM within a calibrated time, this DTC sets.

Step 1:
Hangs When Idle for a Long b> Normally your computer will turn on a screen saver or enter sleep mode after a certain period of idle time, to protect your monitor from suffering a "burn in" of an image that appears on the screen for extended periods of time. This also helps to save electricity during periods of inactivity. Vista owners report via Internet tech help forums a seemingly rampant "bug" that causes the machine to freeze after being left idle for long periods. No single factor seems to cause this, and instead requires troubleshooting and trial and error to find a fix that works.

Screen Saver Failure
When your computer freezes after a long idle period, it could be due to a malfunctioning screen saver. Turn your screen saver off, by clicking "Start" and then "Control Panel." Under "Appearance and Personalization," click "Personalization" and select "Screen Saver." Select "None" under the screensaver drop-down list and hit OK. Pay attention next time your computer goes idle for reappearance of the problem. b> Power Saving Options b> Windows Vista provides users a way to select how their computers behave after sitting idle for a certain amount of time. In many cases, the hard drive and monitor are instructed to enter sleep mode or even shut down after they've been idle for a specified time frame. To check or alter your settings, click the "Start" button and then "Control Panel." Under the System and Maintenance icon, click "Power Options." Under this tab you can change the amount of time before your system goes to sleep, and the actions it takes after reaching the idle time. Malware b> When mysterious things begin happening to your computer for no apparent reason, there's a good chance a malware program is behind it. Malware are nasty, hidden programs that download themselves onto your computer to cause havoc and even steal your personal information. These invaders monopolize your CPU, clog your RAM, and generally make using your computer unpleasantly slow and frustrating. Their presence can affect everything from program operation to operating system functionality. Always update and run malware protection software regularly to keep these pests out of your computer. b> Update Windows and BIOS b> Your computer's operating system and BIOS files are responsible for proper operation and functionality. Over time, these files can become outdated, requiring patches, fixes and other updates to correct compatibility and security problems in your computer. Microsoft provides regular updates for its Vista operating system to correct reported problems. The BIOS in your computer is programmed into the motherboard, so the board's manufacturer may have an update available for your version. In many cases, the brand that sells the computer may offer a link to the BIOS update, so check with Microsoft for any updates available. b> Too Many Processes b> Your computer will register as "idle" if you haven't used it, even if you have programs open on the screen. After a certain amount of time, the system will send the data you were working on to the RAM as the system settles into sleep mode. When trying to wake the system after this idle period, it may have a hard time resuming the programs that are open, causing a freeze. Close down any program you are not actively working in to save the CPU from unnecessary work, and lessen the load placed on the RAM when it's left idle. right mouse click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications if you see something running that should not be running select end now you might even uninstall that specific program if its no longer needed also in the processes tab see whats ticking over in the background might be a virus or malware.

Power management lets you reduce your Notebook power consumption. Your Notebook has two power management modes:
  • Hibernation is an energy-saving feature and safeguard that saves information to the hard drive, then turns off your Notebook. When you resume from Hibernation, your information returns to the screen where you were previously working. Your Notebook hibernates when the Power button is pressed, when the battery has little power left, or when your Notebook (operating on battery power) is in Sleep mode for more than one hour.
  • Sleep, also called Standby, is an energy-saving feature that reduces power to system components that are not being used. When Sleep is initiated, your information is saved in Random Access Memory (RAM), and the screen is cleared. Your Notebook is still on, but the display is blank. When you resume from Suspend, your information returns to the screen where you were previously working.
Automatically put your notebook into hibernation Windows can automatically put your computer into Hibernate mode after a specified period of inactivity. Or Windows can detect when your batteries are running low, and then automatically put your computer in Hibernate mode to save your work before the battery fails. NOTE: Using Power Options in Control Panel, you can adjust any power management option that your notebook's unique hardware configuration supports. Because these options may vary widely from computer to computer, the options described may differ from what you see. Power Options automatically detects what is available on your computer and shows you only the options that you can control. To automatically put your computer into hibernation:
  1. In Category view, click Start , click Control Panel , click Performance and Maintenance , and then click Power Options . In Classic view, click Start , click Control Panel , and then click the Power Options icon.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, select the Enable hibernate support check box, and then click Apply . Figure 1: Enable hibernation check box c00035872.gif
  3. Click the Power Schemes tab, and then select a time period in System hibernates. Your computer hibernates after it has been idle for the specified amount of time.
Manually put your notebook into hibernation This feature is available only on notebooks with the Windows XP operating system installed.
  1. In Category view, click Start , click Control Panel , click Performance and Maintenance , and then click Power Options . In Classic view, click Start , click Control Panel , and then click the Power Options icon.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box. NOTE: If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. Click Start , and then click Turn Off Computer . In the Turn off computer dialog box, hold down the Shift key. The Stand By button will change to Hibernate. Click Hibernate .

The bulb in your HP PSC remains on for a specified period so that the unit
is immediately ready to respond to your request. When the HP PSC has not
been used within that specified period, it turns the bulb off to preserve
power and displays Power Save On in the front-panel display. (You can exit
this mode by pressing any button on the front panel.)
Your unit is automatically set to enter power-save mode after 12 hours.
Follow these steps if you want the HP PSC to enter this mode earlier.
1 Press Setup.
2 Press 5, then press 6.
This selects Maintenance, and then selects Power Save Mode Time.
3 Press until the desired time appears, then press Enter.

Lamp Replacement

some projectors have a shut down timer. if it not being used for a specified amount of time, it'll go into a "sleep" mode to save the lamp. but the projector was designed for continual use. if the lamp get too hot, say after 12 hours, it'll go into thermal shutdown to cool off. turning it off when not in use saves the lamp a few hours or minute, but it's not necessary. just like keeping your car idle while you're in the house is ok, but it wastes gas and is not necessary.
