Question about LG Flatron L1715S 17" LCD Monitor

3 Answers

When the PC starts the monitor does not come out of the power standby mode

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.

    Apologies as the above description is not completely accurate once i checked the problem out again.
    Once the monitor is on standby and i power my PC, the monitor does not come out of the sleep mode and become active. i have swapped the monitor connecting cable and swapped the power cables and the same problem still occurs.

    any thoughts anyone?

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)
