Question about Compaq FP 5017 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I am getting a message traveling across my screen that says, "Input Signal Out of Range." Then, after about 1 minute I get a "going to Sleep" message, and the screen goes into sleep mode. I keep having to hit the menu button to get a screen again. Also, the menu only blips on for a half second, so I can't really try to figure out how to reset the monitor. Can anyone help? Thanks!

That message means, you have the unstated PC, set to a super high resolution, that is totally ******* on this old screen,
buy a newer screen,
or change the resolution.
no PC stated , at all. model , is it HP?
no OS stated, if XP hit F8 and run safe mode and lower the resolution to 1024x768.

only these work,,never higher.

SOURCE: Going to Sleep

Due to the power surge, it is highly possible that the monitor was given a boot by your computer on it's way out.

This will short out a very small transistor inside the monitor on the video board and in turn, then monitor cannot see that there is a signal so goes to sleep.

If you get brave enough to venture inside the screen, then check near the cable input. The transistors are only around 3mm and have 3 legs (two one side and one in the middle on the other).

If you find anything like that burnt (get a magnifying glass) then replacing the board is the easiest option. Just don't be tempted to wipe the board before you look at everything very closely, you may wipe away the tiny bit of evidence you are looking for.

Hope it helps =)

SOURCE: No DVi input, then computer goes to sleep

DVI input means Digital video input, check the cables on both monitor and the back of the computer. If they are solid and tight then you may have a bad cable. hope this helps biigg53566

SOURCE: problem with compaq MV 520 monitor

Your monitor is operating normally. After Windows starts it is setting the video resolution to something outside of the monitor's range. That's why you see the Windows splash screen, then the message from the monitor about the settings. Most likely the computer was used before with a monitor that had a wider range of resolutions available.

Restart the computer. When the manufacturer's logo screen appears, press the F8 key three or four times. This should get you a startup menu screen. Pick the option of starting in VGA mode, and Windows will start with video settings that your monitor supports.

SOURCE: Monitor keeps stating "monitor going

This is probably a video setting issue. In Safe Mode, Windows starts with low resolution and color settings, so the monitor can display them. But when it tries to start normally, Windows is using a video setting the monitor can't handle.

Start the computer and press the F8 key three or four times when the manufacturer's logo screen appears. This should get you to the Windows startup menu screen, and you can pick the option of starting in VGA mode. This will start Windows with video settings any monitor can handle.

Once you have Windows up and running, make sure the video card and monitor types are properly set up. It would also be a good idea to download and install the latest drivers for your video card. You can usually find them at the manufacturer's website.

SOURCE: monitor stuck in sleep mode

It will do this when it's not getting a video signal from the computer. Make sure that the signal cable is firmly plugged in at both ends. Also verify that the computer is actually starting up. The monitor may not be getting a signal because the computer isn't sending any.

Check if you VGA is properly settled in the PCI slot. Try to take it out, clean the slot for dust.

Second level tv has a signal but the main tv on first floor has no signal.


Hello! It sounds like there are a few things that could actually be going on. If you are getting no picture on the TV(you have a black, blue, or snowy screen), you will want to make sure that the TV is on the correct channel and/or input. You will want to be on channel 3 or 4, and possibly on a Video 1 or 2 or HDMI 1 or 2 input. If that doesn't work, then try unplugging the receiver from the power source for about 10 seconds. If you are still not getting a picture, let me know!

If you have a signal loss message on your screen (Signal has been lost, Partial SIgnal loss, COmplete signal loss, or Acquiring signal), you will first want to unplug the receiver from the power source for 10 seconds. You will get the Acquiring singla message as the receiver reboots after you plug it in, but that should only be about 5 minutes at the most. If you get the message after 5 minutes, you will want to make sure that all of the cables going from the back of the receiver to the wall are tight. If that still doesn't do it, please let me know!

I see that this monitor has a DVI input, in additon to the VGA input. I suggest getting a suitable cable to use the DVI input, to see if the fault replicates. If it doesn't, you have identified the problem - an issue with the analogue signal processeing circuitry in either the monitor or the computer. The monitor's auto sleep analogue circuitry, for example, may not be sensing a signal, and going to sleep. BTW, if you use a DVI-DVI cable, you avoid the video signal ever going through an analogue stage, and the image will also be purer.
