Having problems with your Sylvania L181 18.1" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

Monitor goes to white at cpu shutdown

\015 I need help on finding out why my monitor goes to white.\015\012I shut down my windows XP system and the monitor started to go to a white screen, and stays that way until I unplug the monitor or restart the computer.\015\012Turning the monitor off with the monitors on/off does not work, it stays white.\015\012It is so bright at night I have to turn off the surge strip to cut the power to the monitor, so I can sleep.\015\012\015\012Please help.\015\012Thank you in advance, Kevin\015

Answers :

The problem is in the "soft switch" technology:\015\012On some of Sylvania's newer monitors they have incorporated what is called "soft switch" technology. This allows your ATX power supplied computer to turn your monitor on and off using it?s software controls. Therefore, your monitor?s light will always stay on blinking even when your computer is off. \015\012\015\012The monitor in normal operation consumes about 80W of power; in the "OFF" state it will be reduced below 8W. The "OFF" mode of the monitor can be controlled by the PC input signal or by pushing the soft-power button to disable the PC signal control for manually turning off the monitor screen.\015\012\015\012Thus, when the monitor is in soft-power "OFF" mode it still consumes a very small amount of power. For the purpose of making it noticeable to the user that the monitor is in soft-power "OFF" mode, we designed the power indicator to provide for a slow blinking signal (every 2 seconds). If you need to totally turn off the power, then the power cord would have to be unplugged. The same is true of the PC itself, but the PC does not provide for notification while in "OFF" mode.\015\012\015\012Your monitor looks like it may be in need of repair, contact info: \015\012\015\012PTI Technologies Inc. \015\0127372 Doig Dr. \015\012Garden Grove, Ca 92841 \015\012Phone: 714-799-3899 \015\012Fax: 714-379-6290 \015\012\015\012Hours: Mon - Fri 8:00am to 6:00pm PST
I am having the same issue, but it is with a lenovo netbook. The original screen was cracked so I replaced it. It works fine if the computer is turned on, but as soon as I shut it down the screen turns white and will stay there unless I unplug it and take out the battery or it runs out of juice. Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks

When I power off my LCD monitor, the screen goes all white, but once I turn the monitor back on it goes right back to displaying whatever it should on the screen. Or when I shutdown the computer it also goes white, staying white regardless of power off/on. The only solution is to unplug the power cable. If, before I unplug the power cable, I leave the monitor powered on the screen goes back to all white once power is re-applied. However, if I press the power switch, then remove the power cord

For the past week, when my Sceptre LCD monitor goes to sleep after inactivity, it won't restart immediately. The blue LED blinks every second or so; eventually, the screen begins to flash the display, and then a few minutes after that, will finally turn on. Sometimes the whole process takes five minutes, sometimes an hour. How can I fix this problem? (I can't find the documentation to say exactly what model this is; if that's important, I can look again.)
