Have a Dell E228WFP monitor keeps going into power save mode.

does it go into power save mode with your actually doing something. Like for instance if your typing does it go into power save mode? If its going into power save mode when your not doing anything on it then its as simple as a setting either on the monitor itself or in the power settings within your computer accessible by the control panel and screensaver

Monitor Goes into Power Save Mode

old post 2017, 1 year old. Desktop and very old monitor.
This old monitor is CCFL and those fail super easy now.
built in 2005, backlamps are mostly dead now.
VGA cable? or DVI#1 or 2 port connected
the monotor told you PC went to sleep mode
I believe it. I bet the monitor works on any other PC you try, I bet.
so put the PC VISTA in into presentation mode.
(like we do with presentations, or kiosk mode, or using a nice DLP projector in theater)
just one app does this below
or learn to use
control panel, + Power settings, and advanced.
turn off all sleep modes,all hibernate modes.
turn on all wake-on modes, for sure USB ports.
make sure device manager is not showing dead devices (chips) if it is , that means get the missing drivers from Dell, for VISTA. Dell has them on your support page
and we are not DELL.,0301-28162.html

Will not leave power save

This could be a computer problem more than a monitor problem. To check the monitor disconnect the video cable from the back of the monitor and see if you get any colored lines. If yes then the monitor is file. If even with the video cable disconnnect the monitor shows power save mode it a bad monitor. If you get the lines then you need to troubelshoot the computer. Try powering off the computer and then power it on and tap F8 as the computer restarts. If you get any display it should be a screen with the options safe mode etc. Select safe mode and start the computer up and once at the desktop restart, Let me know if this helps.

My Dell E176FPc monitor seems to be stuck in power saver mode. There is no way to access the on screen menu. When the monitor is unplugged from the compouter, it shows a self test screen with 3 colored...

Try the monitor if you can on another computer and see if it stays in power save mode. If it does then the monitor is bad.

If you try the monitor on another computer and you get video then that means theres an issue with the original computer.

In power save mode

The monitor is not receiving signal from the computer. Is the power light on on the computer? If so - press and hold power button on computer until the power light goes off, then press again to restart. If the computer starts and you still have no picture it is most likely a video card or motherboard problem.

I think your monitor is unstable. Is it showing power saving when you boot your PC? Does it show something when the Windows XP splash appears?

Flatron LG monitor safe mode

Your monitor goes to Power Saving Mode when the signal it is receiving is not correct. In all probability this is not a problem of the monitor itself, rather you should check the connections and the computer the monitor it's connected to. For example you could try a different RGB cable and try it in a different computer.
