(SOLVED) Why Samsung Monitor keeps entering Power Save Mode?

Why doesthe Samsung monitor keep entering save mode?

The main reason why your Samsung monitor keeps entering power save mode is because of a faulty motherboard, faulty RAM or a drained battery.


For computers, their motherboards are the “nucleus.” Any problem with them impairs the function of other devices.


The monitor receives signals from the CPU. When it is out of order, it fails to give proper signals to the device. Consequently, the device continues to go into power save mode.


Possible Causes:

  • RAM issues
  • Overheating
  • Drained-out battery
  • Loose connections
  • Bad capacitors


RAM issues

Your entire system runs on the crutches of RAM sticks. The RAM allows you to run your programs seamlessly. At times, it fails to bear the load of the programs.When RAM sticks are near their capacity, they start showing performance issues.



The prolonged use of your system may heat it. Your CPU has fans that let your system cool down during its running. But when it gets difficult for the tiny fans to continue with the cooling process, the CPU signals other device to go into sleep mode to avoid the system from bearing irreversible damage.


Drained-out battery

Like all other components of your computer, drained-out batteries cannot run forever. When the batteries start losing their charge, they keep forcing other devices shut down. It sometimes leads to your monitor going to power save mode.


Loose cables/ loose connections

Your monitor is connected to the CPU through a thick cable wire. Even though these wires are fixed tightly, they can move away from their place when you are dusting or cleaning your computer table. It may result in your monitor slipping into power save mode.


Bad capacitors

Bad capacitors in your monitor badly affect its performance. Out-of-order capacitors don’t allow your monitor to work seamlessly.


Dust buildup

Dust buildup inside the monitor causes it to perform unsatisfactorily. Regular cleaning of the device is essential to rule out this possibility. Also, ensure that you keep water or other liquid away from your system. If you accidentally drop water on your monitor, it may keep working temporarily. But you will still need to get it fixed. So if you have had such accidents, you should take it to a computer repair shop and get an expert to check it.
