LG Monitor L194WT - Indicator Lights Flashing

When monitor goes to sleep, the power lights flash oddly ... purple and blue, in two different rhythms. At that time, monitor's on/off switch doesn't respond. (On/off switch DOES respond when monitor is working (solid blue light) or in power save (yellow light). When lights are flashing, monitor also does not come back on when mouse is wiggled and keys hit.

If I attempt a hard boot (did it just once) the monitor came back.

So, is this problem the monitor or the computer??

Sorry to be so dense....

    OK....so I'm trying the fix in two steps: first, I changed the Power Setting Options as you suggested.



    If this doesn't work by itself, I'll add the blank screen as screensaver.



    And if THAT doesn't work, I'll go buy a new monitor ... lol. Does that sound like a solution?? I am happy that the problem is not the computer itself.....a monitor is cheaper and easier.

    Ohms ... you are WONDERFUL. Thank you. I just found the warranty (3 year!) and original receipt (1.5 years ago) so it should all be good. THANK YOU THANK YOU......

Definitely it is not your computer. When it was given the signal to go OFF, it did but like completely off.

Comment by ohms, posted on Jun 19, 2008Oh one more thing, if the monitor still exhibits same issue after setting your Power Options as displayed above,

check your warranty with that monitor and exercise it.

Yep u got it ! warranty or new monitor

My Acer LED monitor is black unresponsive and has an unchanging purple power button. What is causing this and how can I fix it?


no PC stated,
and what does this mean.
"showed nothing."
2nd monitor ,did it work on not? please be clear.
I guess you mean the 2nd monitor works on this unstated PC.
but not the 246 ,as it is dead. or shows odd things? no photos off odd presented,
246, is 6 years old today.

ok , PC dead, but is it silent, it must blow 2 fans desktop.
ok, does the GN246HL fail on other PCs.
if not it is good.
if yes,it is bad, simple no?
all test monitor directly to a PC, DVI jack.
this monitor is only 6 years, old and is LED backlighted


what does this mean?
Dual Link DV-I.??????????
this monitor has only one DVI port (and vga , and HDMI)

now test 1.
NO pC connected
power on the monitor,
it shows LOGO sign , ACER logo message seen for 6 long years but today is dead.
Now turn it on again and push menu button, on monitor.
you get OSD screen windows, from the monitor brain and it works
and looks good , but only for 10 seconds at power on.
the 10 second rule on OSD, means you must do that fast.

the controls are in the manual

My lcd screen switch goes green and a message appears "going to sleep" and the switch light goes yellow


1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor needs replaced.

I have a acer.x223w when,it powers up the.screem stays black, n i get a blue blinking light on.the bottom


I disagree with ikkenom only due to the symptom of the flashing blue light. This would indicate to me that the monitor is not getting any display signal and is in sleep mode at least the is what happens on my Samsung monitor. Used to be that they use a two color led in the monitor, green when ON and getting display signal and amber or orange when in sleep mode. I would check the computer by trying a different monitor. If you have a second monitor, great, if not, maybe a friend will let you bring your computer over and try the computer with their monitor. Could also be a display adapter setting. Do you get any change when you first turn on your computer? i.e. Do you get the BIOS or manufacturer screen when first turned on? Also if you disconnect the monitor cable from the computer and power cycle the monitor, do you get a No Signal display for a few seconds before the monitor goes black and the blue light starts flashing?

Let me know what happens with the testing above or if you need further instructions to carry out testing.

Thanks, Jim

Check the cord and connections for the monitor; this has one wire that must have voltage on it or the monitor goes to sleep, and a broken wire or loose connection will fool it into thinking you are powering down. If this doesn't work try going into power options and setting monitor to never power down.

Blank screen after monitor sleep just blue flashing light


Hi,

First of all you can change the Power Settings in Control Panel. You can configure as you need. I mean after how much wait it should go for sleep n all.

If it takes 5 min. to wakeup that means you have so many applications running that system cannot manage or RAM is small.

The final solution just remove the Display drivers and reinstall it.

After removing please restart the system once to proceed further
