Problem when turning monitor off

I am writing to ask for help regarding my parents' computer monitor. Unfortunately, they arent very familiar (confident) with computers, so I am trying to help them with their problem. I have been away out of the country for several years and also not too familiar with the new LCD monitors, flat screen, etc. They have always left the computer on. To be honest, I dont know if that is a good thing or bad thing nowadays. They have had the monitor for around 2 years now. So, you can assume that the computer has nearly always been on, even though it is used very little. Anyway, to get to the problem, I have told them (again I am not very familiar with these kind of monitors) that maybe they should be turning their monitor off every once in a while. So they have started doing this. We have noticed that the monitor is having problems rebooting when we turn it back on. It starts making weird noises (kind of like a squeeking noise) and the picture is just barely seen on the monitor (the screen is very dark). It continues making the weird squeeking noises for around an hour and finally makes kind of like a rebooting noise and the regular screen (as it should be) comes on. Other than rebooting the monitor after turning it back on, they have had zero problems with the computer. I have been researching on this trying to study up on LCD monitors the past several days and have found that it is recommended to go with a "blank screen" screensaver and to put the option of turning off the monitor automatically after a several hours of inactivity. I dont know understand, however, why the monitor has trouble rebooting after being turned off for several hours, though. Maybe it is normal? or the monitor should be treated in another form? If you can help at all with this problem, I would appreciate it. Thank you!

Mcdevito75 here LCD, or liquid Crystal display, chances are the crackling is the inside liquid display trying to capture the in comming electricity to make a display picture. Remember even an LCD is nothing more than a light bulb, a very intricate light bulb but a light bulb, and you have light bulbs burn out when you put them on and almost never as the are on burning. Turning the monitor itself off won"t really save electricity or the monitor itself as, when you shut down the computer from Start (left side of screen) the monitors screen saver comes on for 10--20 minutes then goes off, at this point the electricity is at the monitors on/off switch and not going thru the monitor at all. If you turn the monitor off at it"s on/off switch, the sudden jump of electricity to the monitor from it"s on/off switch could hurt it, or even the switch. I have a friend who turns off the monitor also and that friend had a bad monitor in 3 years. I never turn my monitor off just the computer itself. I'd speak with a Radio Shack, Staples, Best Buy ETC. for more advise. Me I;d say leave the monitor on. Hope this helps.

Hello, unfortunately this is usually due to hardware problem, In this specific situation it is most likely the problem with lcd panel itself (electronic on panel). Sometimes it can work after the units becomes cold (not working for some time) and you power it on again.
Anyway if you are not familiar with electronics , please visit proper service center, due to the high voltage inside.
Hope this helps.

If you can only see two lines appearing on the screen this may indicate that the parent unit is searching for a signal from its partner and cannot locate one. Check that the nursery unit has fresh batteries and is switched on. If all ok with the nursery unit you may need to "re-pair" the two units together as per instructions. Note that the maximum distance between the Parent Unit and the Nursery Unit is approx. 100 metres indoors. In reality the Signal Strength Indicator on the parent unit should show the strength of signal between the Parent Unit and Nursery Unit. The Out of Range Indicator should alarm when the two units have lost connection and the Out of Range Icon will be visible in the Parent Unit screen. However these units sometimes require a "re-pairing" exercise to get them to communicate with each other again. Ensure both units have fresh batteries.
In the unlikely event that the connection between the Nursery Unit and the Parents Unit is completely lost, please follow these steps to restore the connection:
1. Turn both the Parents Unit and the Nursery Unit OFF
2. Turn the Nursery Unit ON
3. Press and release the left wing 4 times. The nightlight will fl ash.
4. Turn the Parent Unit ON. A blue screen will appear with the NO SIGNAL icon in the Parent Unit Settings Bar
5. While pressing the TALK BACK button on the right hand side of the Parent Unit, press and release the POWER button on the left hand side of the Parent Unit
6. If successful, the video capture will appear on the Parent Unit's screen again. The connection was successfully restored

In order to solve your problem I have to let you run several checklists with your help. Before that let me know whether you are a familiar user with the computers, operating systems and hardware. And also let me know whether you are familiar with electronic diagnosis tools.
Describe your last activity with the machine.

Please answer these simple questions (Ignore the Software usage problems if you are not familiar with them. I ll ask during the process).
Because if you are not familiar with them I need to give you more detailed solutions.
If you are a familiar user with machines and Operating systems:

Monitor display


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me"

Unfortunately, an HCL HCM782M monitor is an unknown model. However, on similar instances and occurrence of this problem, it would seem that the controls are damp. Specifically, it would be the internal contacts of the buttons. Pls check if you can dis-assemble, remove the board/control/buttons and perform cleaning. Pls pay particular attention to the rubber pads or the small buttons themselves. if I may ask, any recent continuous rain? If yes, this may have contributed or caused your problem.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
