Once you've hooked up your monitor and you begin using it, you might experience power loss problems with your device. You'll want to know how to adjust your monitor quickly and efficiently before working on projects and settling in with your computer.

Push the power button to make sure the unit hasn't been turned off. You'll know that the power is on when the power indicator light, located on the front of the monitor, is illuminated in blue. If the light is amber-coloured, the unit is in sleep mode. To wake the monitor from sleep mode, simply move the mouse.
If the monitor was in sleep mode, but the indicator light was completely off, suggesting there was no power going to your monitor, you can enable the light by first pushing the "Menu" button on the monitor's front panel. The main menu will appear. Use the up and down navigation buttons to highlight "Setup," push the "Auto/Set" button on the front panel to select it, scroll to down to "Power Indicator," and push "Auto/Set." If the power indicator light is set to "Off," switch the selection to "On," and push the "Auto/Set" button to save your selection. This will turn on your power indicator light to let you know your monitor is receiving power.
The power cord might be compromised, thus blocking the flow of power to your monitor. Twist your monitor so that the back is easily accessible. Examine the power cord from the monitor to the wall outlet for frays or damage. If you see damage, replace the cord.
Unplug the power cord from the wall and monitor to reset the connection. Plug an electronic device into the wall outlet to test the outlet for proper functionality. Firmly insert the pronged end of the power cord into the wall outlet and the opposite end into the monitor. Confirm that both connections are solid and not loose.
"Check Signal Cable"
A loose analogue signal cable, which runs from your PC to your monitor, can prevent a picture from showing on your monitor. Your monitor displays the message "Check Signal Cable" on the screen when the cable is disconnected. Confirm that the supplied signal cable is screwed in tightly to the monitor's "D-Sub" jack. Disconnect the cable from the monitor by unscrewing both sides, and examine the receptor for any bent or damaged prongs. Check the cable's connection to your PC in a like manner. The connections should be firmly screwed in and sturdy.
Your screen's brightness may have been brought completely down, giving your monitor the appearance of being powerless when you move the mouse. You can adjust your brightness by pushing the "Menu" button. Use the navigation buttons to select "Picture," push the "Auto/Set" button to select it, navigate to "Brightness," and push "Auto/Set." Use the navigation buttons to raise the brightness until you can see your computer's screen saver.
