Question about Princeton Digital VL17151 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Monitor went to sleep and won't wake up

After the screen saver times out, the monitor goes to sleep. This is indicated by the blue power indicator flashing. The monitor has gone to sleep, but will not return to normal operation. There is no picture displayed. I have tried another monitor, that works fine. I have tried rebooting, but nothing seems to help, including a power off/on of the monitor. What's happening? Thanks!

    I went to use my HP computer yesterday and it would not wake up. I turned the power to the monitor off and back on and briefly got a message about no input signal received, then back to sleep. I turned the computer off and back on and finally got it to work. Used it for quite a while with no problem. After leaving it for 30 minutes, it was asleep and again, would not wake up without turning the computer off and back on. Any ideas?

Maybe too much dust on the videocard, clean the videocard with an air spray. It was the solution for me.

I've got a HP w1907v monitor and latly it has been going into sleep mode without warning while i'm using it. All my power saver settings are set to off.


If this monitor is going into sleep mode the normally blue power led will change to yellow. This indicates loss of video signal or possible out of range resolution. If the picture goes dark and the power lite stays blue, you have a backlight malfunction. It can be an inverter power fault but this model mostly has worn out backlights causing a shutdown condition.

Dell screen (1901FP) won't come out of power saver mode


hold down the Fn and F8 keys, and it worked fine for me. or if your problem is you cannot wake from power saving mode (after your PC goes to sleep, then its probably just the driver for your video card). VISTA has some issues with certain drivers that the PC cannot wake from sleep

Base on the information given to me.

I think your computer is on sleeping mode.

first thing check if the video cable is not loose connecting the pc.

because what would happend, if it is loos it would turn on and off at times.

The other thing you can do.

right click on the desktop.
go to properties
go to screen saver
click on power

adjust the time you want your monitor to shut off.

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.

Stuck in power saver


Try the unlock procedure: With the monitor on press and hold the "MENU button for abot five seconds and see if it resets. If that doesn't work tell me a bit more about the screen - is there any OSD (on screen display) or error messages? Is the power indicator light on? If so, what color is it? Blue indicates that that you may need to turn the brightness and contrast up...\ If it is actually in power save the indicator light will be amber. What color is it? If the light is amber and all the connections to the computer are correct and it still won't come-up then it's an internal problem and the protect circuit may be keeping the screen from lighting. Good luck... And let me know. Bill
