Monitor won't go into standby when in HDMI mode

I am trying to use the monitor to connect both my PC and Playstation 3. When both are on (either through DVI in or HDMI in) then the picture is perfect. When I power down the DVI device, the monitor goes dark after approx 5 seconds. When I Power down the HDMI device, the monitor glows bright blue.

It doesn't matter whether I turn the device off or unplug the device, the monitor still shows a blue monochrome screen

    Have talked to BenQ and they admit a bug but they are not going to fix it !!!
    The suggested to use DVI-input instead of HDMI-input.
    But in the DVI I have another computer!

SOURCE: "No signal detected" when LCD connected with DVI-D Cable

Thank you for providing your configuration details.
You have failed to specify wheather or not your LCD Display is under Warrenty.

Perhaps these simple trouble shooting procedures will get the job done.

1. use the DVI to VGA adaptor that came with your card

Plug in a regular CRT monitor to the Primary Display Output Port using the DVI to VGA adaptor
( either port can be designated as the primary by you )
I like to use the Port nearest to the motherboard as the Primary

2. plug in the your LCD monitor on Secondary Display port using your DVI cable

At this point you should be able to see your desktop on the Primary CRT Display

3. Go to the display properties and use the Nvidia Dual Display Setup Wizard

set both desktops to CLONED at a resolution of 1024x768 and set the refresh to 60Hz
which is default for most LCD displays , some have higher refresh rates , consult your user manuel

If the display resolution and refresh are set incorrectly for your CRT or LCD you will see
Signal Out of Range ( if the display has the ability to display that error message )

At this stage both displays should be showing a Windows Desktop

If you now see your desktop on both displays , you can now put the LCD on the Primary Port



No Signal Detected ( this means the display device is not receiving a signal )

If your LCD display is still displaying the error message
"No Signal Detected" after performing the trouble shooting proceedures
You may need to read the user manuel about how to enable DVI signal input.

If you are certan you have done everything correctly but still see only "No Signal Detected"

Your LCD Display may need replacement

SOURCE: The monitor screen goes dark about 10 minutes

Please verify the power option setting present in 'control pannel' option once. If you have selected to turn off the power supply after 10mins, (once the system is in idle state) then the SMPS will stop supplying power.

thanks.

SOURCE: Monitor turns black after 3 seconds

teo6925, "Switch-mode-power-supply" is in partial shutdown mode. Can you see any electrolytic filter capacitors that have a slight "swelling" to their tops? They should be flat!! You may also need to inspect all the soldered component connections very closely for cold, thermally intermittant, "frosty" looking solder joint connections. May need large magnifying glass or 10x to 20x inspection microscope to locate these thermal/vibration "fractures" and then resolder them! If you have a capacitor problem, then you will need to carefully remove and replace with new ones. If you are novice at soldering I suggest that you document your work with digital camera or video tape so you can get everything back together with no "leftover" pieces! Teo, all you need to do to find out how BAD the problem of poorly manufactured capacitors is would be to search WEB for BAD CAPACITORS!!! Look for pic's of ELITE capacitors or CAPXON brand. You will be stunned beyond belief!!! Reading is free!! READ, READ, READ. Let us know what you find and do additional comment here on FIXYA. 12fixlouie

Hi , just access the monitor on-screen display (OSD) menu and ensure Monitor input mode is configured for HDMI ( Asus speak the " desired input source" ) - Input select is accessed under tv with arrow icon : change from vga to hdmi

How to switch from analog to digital mode


Any contemporary monitor is able to switch analog/digital mode automatically if connection from signal source to monitor is set up properly.

Connect digital output from your graphic card to DVI input of the monitor. Disconnect any other signal cables from monitor and switch on both devices (PC & monitor). Wait a while. Monitor checks its inputs and a activates digital DVI, because it is only one active input on it.

If none picture excluding error message of monitor is displayed, go through these steps:
1) Check whether your monitor is set for automatic input selection. If monitor buttons have no response try to use analog input to activate screen (any picture, desktop background...) and then get monitor menu access by pressing menu button.

2) Find out what connector type has your graphics card in PC. Possibilities are: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and some their options. See Wikipedia for connector look if you are not sure.
Remember that blue D-SUB (VGA) connectors are analogue and you cannot activate digital mode through analog VGA cable.

3) Use appropriate cable to connect monitor to PC.
Example: Your PC has HDMI output. Use HDMi-to-DVI cable. Your monitor input is DVI and common DVI-DVI cable is not suitable in case you have PC with the HDMI.
Note that DVI-to-DVI, DisplayPort-to-DVI etc. cables are available. You must buy right one.

Be aware that "Auto" button is inactive in digital mode of monitor.

You need to check display resolution settings.
Also make sure graphic driver installed and working fine.
For that when you power up the computer press F8 key 5 to 6 times then you can see safe mode and other menu.
Enter in Enable vga mode and go to control panel->display property->settings change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I just bought a refurbished asus bp003 c2q q8300 from Comp USA, when I connect the PC to the monitor via the HDMI cable the monitor does not go in the HDMI mode instead goes to the VGA mode. What is it...


You might try going into the computer's BIOS / Setup and set the video settings there. I'm not familiar with Asus, but it should tell you upon boot-up which key to press to get into Setup. That's assuming this model can handle HDMI.

My monitor gets switched off when i connect to cpu,the moment i disconnect it from cpu,its switches on automatically.what may be the problem?


One of two things:

1.) Your video card is 'stuck' in standby mode, which in turn sends a signal putting the monitor in low power 'standby' mode as well. When you disconnect it, the monitor returns to normal 'on' mode. Rebooting the PC should correct this issue.

2.) Your resolution or refresh rate are set outside the range supported by the monitor. When you connect the monitor, it starts receiving a signal that it can't display, so it simply turns off. You'll need to reboot the PC and press F8 quickly to bot into safe mode and correct the monitor settings.

Monitor problem....
