    Screen is black and any button you push on the monitor it will say the monitor is going to sleep. The mouse doesn't wake it up.

    The monitor has a black screen and keeps going to sleep with every button you push on the monitor. The mouse will not wake it up either.

Thank you, but that will not work because you only have approximately 2 seconds to do anything before the screen goes black. The best solution I found was to dispose of my frustration for $1 at the recycling bin and purchase a new monitor. My Dell was less than half the cost and has been working wonderfully.

SOURCE: Black screen

Faulty capacitors in the power supply will cause this to happen.
The capacitors will be sending out bad current to the controller board and give you the results you are seeing.

Take it to your local TV repair shop and get them to change the capacitors, it should not cost alot to have it done.

Hope it helps =)

SOURCE: monitor stuck in sleep mode

It will do this when it's not getting a video signal from the computer. Make sure that the signal cable is firmly plugged in at both ends. Also verify that the computer is actually starting up. The monitor may not be getting a signal because the computer isn't sending any.

SOURCE: Screen keeps going black

you may need to change the video output to output 1 in your pcs monitor settings - if you have 2 outputs from pc, swap cable over and select identify monitor. the default for the monitor should be 1( a huge 1 over the display appears)

mishwilly. If monitor will do same thing with different KNOWN GOOD pc, then monitor will need it's "switch-mode-power-supply" fixed. Could also need CCFL inverter circuit checked! Do you have warranty service? Follow the links to other web sites that you find in my FIXYA profile to read about other options open to you. 12fixlouie Read, read, read.

I have a HP vs17 monitor that keeps going to sleep. It will flash to windows when I first start and immediately goes into sleep mode. When this first happened, I had managed to make sure any sleep modes,...


trixieb1, It's NOT going to sleep mode. Use warranty if possible!! If that not option you will need to read about "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" and the voltage inverters that power them. Learn to do flashlight test when screen goes to black or blank n black!!! Read my fixya profile and those of other ccfl back-lit lcd monitor technicians. We already know what is wrong with your unit. And It is a VERY big problem for all LCD monitor manufacturers. Just do some reading before you do anything else. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

My monitor goes to sleep and doesn't come back on.


For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode .
Then go to display property and set screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok.
if still not work then try safe mode then uninstall graphic driver and reinstall.
When you power up the computer press F8 key untill you see windows logo.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Monitor blinks the log on screen and then goes black


If possible you should try and connect the monitor to a different computer and see if you experience the same issue (or connect a different monitor to your computer and see if the same issue occurs). Sometimes the issue is with the graphics card not pushing the signal strength with enough power to keep the image on. If it is indeed the monitor that is bad, I would suggest buying a new one unless the monitor is still under warranty. You can get a decent size monitor from $150-300 and there are plenty of great deals out right now.

Monitor Goes black, or flickers on and off


The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

although it hasn't worked for me because my screen stays black, one of the options given to me is to try to start in safe mode and then adjust your settings to "never" on the energy/sleep/hibernate mode

Viewsonic monitor seems to be stuck in sleep mode


Sound's to me more like a Video card issue, try the monitor in another computer if you are able 2 , otherwise please make sure video card is in tight and secure , not 2 sure what you mean by sleep mode, are you using windows vista? or xp? you may need to change some settings on your operating system , when you turn on computer do you see anything on screen at the start up? also when you click the menu button on the monitor does anything come on the screen then ? if so then its in your opertating sytem settings , disply settings e.c.t, i really need more info to help you solve this , the best thing i can suggest for now is to try the lcd on another computer a friends computer maybe , before considering the monitor is toast , hope this helps some way , good luck !

When I select sleep or hibernate mode - the monitor stays black...


Hit the keyboard keys. It is better to just turn sleep and hibernate off and just use a screen saver or tun it off.
