Question about LG Flatron L1715S 17" LCD Monitor
Hi, The problem is that when i switch off my PC, whether i choose to switch my monitor off or leave it go on power save mode doesnt make a difference. The next time when i start the PC, the monitor light turns to green for a quick second (implying it received a signal from the PC) but then goes back into the standby / power save mode whilst the PC continues to boot up. The only way to resolve this is to switch the PC off and try and switch the monitor off and on and simultaneously switching the PC on. I am running windows XP service pack 2 and have a LG L1715S 17" monitor. I have also recently upgraded the Nvidia graphics card drivers that i have on the PC to the latest ones available on the website. I have also ensured the power options within windows are set never to turn anything off i.e. Monitor or PC. Short of replacing the monitor cable i have tried everything else. (although dont see why the cable would be bad as mentioned above when i switch the PC on the monitor light changes colour to green for a brief second implying some input received from the PC). Any help at all is much appreciated.
Hi The problem is to do with a 680uf capacitor that tends to bulge and fails.this stops the monitor staying on when trigerd to do so,change this and happy day.

These messages appear during if the video cable becomes disconnected or
damaged.(most likely you will need to replace it)
Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the
If your monitor screen remains blank after using the previous procedure, check your video
controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly

Sorry it is a known issue, common to all LCD monitors :( Long story short: Sometimes they do this (it has to do with the soldering metal) it is very easy to repair so if it is in warranty you can contact Lg and if not a repair will not be too expensive ( they just need to apply some soldering metal in the weak spots)
