Dell SP2208WFP Flat Panel Monitor goes straight to power save mode

\015 I have had my computer in "hibernate" for about two days when I came back my monitor wouldn't come out of power save mode and was left staring at a blank screen. I checked and rechecked all of the cables and cords...unplugging, replugging, changing USB locations, power off, and power on for about an hour. My last experiment was to unplug both the monitor and the tower from the outlits for about 2 minutes and...volia, the monitor is working again. \015\012\015\012Yay, problem fixed, right?\015\012\015\012Well, this isn't the first time. I don't remember how I got it fixed the first time because the issue lasted about 15 minutes (this time 1 hour). If anyone can shed some light as to why this happens or how to prevent it from happening again, it would be greatly appreciated.\015

Answers :

If the monitor is not turning blue that means it isn't picking up on the signal that is coming to it.
\015\012Pushing the power button on the monitor should make the monitor work and give you a no signal note if it isn't getting signal.
\015\012If it won't power on with its own power button you maybe having a low\015\012voltage problem in the monitor itself which isn't giving it\015\012enough to fire up after it has been sitting.
\015\012Just a note these monitors use and make power even when they are off, unless they are unplugged.
\015\012I'm thinking along this route also because when you said you unplugged it for a while that it did turn back on.
\015\012Only way to verify it, is to double check the monitor on another\015\012computer. and if it is the same then it will have to come apart.
\015\012Power issues are very common in lcd monitors, Lots of heat in a confined space. The bigger they get the hotter they get.
\015\012You would think they would have incorporated internal fans in these by now. But then they wouldn't sell as many !!!
