Fujitsu Display SL27T-1 LED (Solved)

Fujitsu SL27T-1 monitor sleep problem

Best Answer phillpower2 , 10 July 2017 - 03:17 PM

   JoelKeskinen, Are you sure that it is the screen that is having problems and not something else, the video card or the video cable etc. Do you have another screen you can try... Go to the full post »

Hi!

I've been having this problem for some time now and I thought I'd ask if there was a possible fix for it. 

 

I have a Fujitsu Display SL27T-1 LED, it worked fine for a long time, but then it suddenly decided that it was too tired or whatnot, and decided not to wake up on its own. 

 

Example:

1. I start up a game.

2. Screen switches to full screen mode.

3. Screen is black for a second and a half.

4. Screen goes to sleep.

5. Screen doesn't wake up like it should (pressing any key).

6. Have to restart monitor from monitors power button.

[7. Also screen turns black for a few seconds when trying to watch some videos (doesn't have to be a full screen video).] 

 

 

The monitor has no warranty and it isn't worth having being sent out and repaired.

 

System Specs:

Win 10 Pro 64-bit

Intel Core i5-3570K

Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 Ti

8 GB RAM

SSD

2xHDD

 

Thanks in advance, Joel

:welcome:   JoelKeskinen,

 

Are you sure that it is the screen that is having problems and not something else, the video card or the video cable etc.

 

Do you have another screen you can try to see if the problem is the same.

 

Have you checked that your video cable is in good condition and that the connections are secure (finger tighten only).

 

Can you post the brand and model name or number of your motherboard for us.

Gday.

A couple of other tests to try.

Boot up in Safe Mode, result?

Remove the GPU and connect to the MB ports, result?

My apologies for forgetting to mention, that my monitor is connected via hdmi-cable. 

I do not, unfortunately, have another monitor with a hdmi-port.

My motherboards make and model is Asrock Z77 Extreme4, with no hdmi-port.

I restarted in safe mode and it seems that screen doesn't turn black during full screen video mode, does this mean that the GPU is to blame?

As the screen did not turn black during full screen mode in safe mode, I could not test if the monitor wakes up properly after sleep.

 

Thanks.

Odd as your MB specs here say the board has a HDMI port   :headscratch:

 

I restarted in safe mode and it seems that screen doesn't turn black during full screen video mode, does this mean that the GPU is to blame?

 

 

Possibly a driver issue, what is the actual brand name of the GTX 660 Ti, ASUS, Gigabyte MSI etc or is it an actual Nvidea card.

 

No need for any apology btw, we understand that computer issues can be both stressful and drive people nuts  :(

I must apologies again, for I am blind. Yes it does indeed have an hdmi-port.

I have to attend my mother-in-laws birthday party, but I will test switching the cable to my MB when I get back home and report back here the results.

I believe my GPU brand to be Gigabyte. I will verify this tonight and post back.

 

 

Thanks.

No rush here, you go enjoy the celebrations  :thumbsup:

Unfortunately it is not as easy as just switching video ports, the add on card has to be removed from the MB else you will not get any display, see info here to see if it helps any.

Hello again.
 
I have verified my GPU to be a Gigabyte card.
I have also removed said GPU and plugged my hdmi-cable into my MB and the problem, unfortunately, still persists.
 
I have rummaged through my possessions and found a working hdmi-cable.
Alas, you genius gentlemen have solved my problem. It seems the simplest solution was the correct one. The hdmi-cable was faulty.
I sincerely thank you gentlemen.
