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.

My dell in1910n monitor goes into power save mode and I can't access anything. How do I fix it if I can't get to control panel?


Right click on an empty area (not on an Icon) of your desk top and select properties.
Select the Screen Saver tab.

Click on the Power button in the lower right corner.

Use the Turn off monitor: pull down menu and select never. You may want to set the other parameters to Always On for Power schemes and never for System standby: to never. I set my power scheme to the above settings, since I work with photos and graphics and the color will change as the monitor warms up.

My monitor is stuck in power saver mode


There is something electrically wrong in your monitor which an electrician can identify and fix. There is nothing to worry, some capacitor might've shorted out. It'll be fixed cheaply. Hope this works.

Dell E173FP Monitor requires unplugging/plugging back in to wake


Perhaps your computer is hibernating instead of going into standby which takes a little longer to wake up from. While you are playing plugs and cables it give it enough time to come out of hibernation.

When the computer is in this mode the USB ports turn off which disables keyboard and mouse so the only way to wake up the computer is to press the power button on the computer itself.

One tell tale sign a computer is in hibernation is that the power light on the computer will slowly blink.

I hope this helps.

Power button stuck in off position on Dell Flat screen Monitor


Does the button move at all? What model LCD is it? Most of the time if the monitor does not power up it is the power supply inside the monitor not the button sticking. The power supply can be repaired if that is the problem. Please let me about the movement on the power button and I can help you get back going with your monitor.

Stuck in power saver mode


Go the desktop, right click with mouse and select properties (if it XP) then it will open Display properties --> there you need to go to Screen saver and then to power option

Disable any power off mode on/ Sleep mode. It will solve your problem.

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
