Samsung monitor keeps turning off

I recently acquired a Samsung monitor for my workspace, filled with anticipation. However, I quickly noticed an issue – the monitor kept shutting down only moments after being turned on.

At first, I thought maybe there was something wrong with the power supply or the cable connections, but after troubleshooting those things, nothing seemed to be working. 

After some research, I discovered that it could be caused by several different issues. In this article, we’ll look at why your monitor keeps turning off and how you can fix it.

Let’s get started!

Why Does My Samsung Monitor Keeps Turning Off

You should try these steps if your Samsung monitor keeps turning off.

1. Loose Cable Connection

As a result of a loose cable connection, the monitor will not working well. 

When you face a problem like that, you must check for a loose connection. If you find a loose connection, you may need to tighten it carefully.

After tightening the connection, turn on the monitor and check if it works.

2. Faulty Power Cable

A faulty power cable can also be an possible issue for the monitor to keeps turning off. In order to solve the issue you should check the power cable for external or internal damage. 

If you find any damage in the cable, you need to replace it with a new one. If you found no external damage, check the cable with another monitor. 

Sometimes you do not find visible damage, but the cable can be internally damaged.

If the other monitor is not working well with the cable, you need to replace the cable. After replacing the cable, turn on the monitor if it works.

3. Check Power Setting

Window 11/10 has a setting that determines when your monitor/computer screen will turn off.

If you save the setting incorrectly, you might face a problem with your monitor turning off.

Following the steps for checking the setting

  • Search a control panel in the taskbar search box
  • Click on the power setting
  • Select the option when to turn off the display
  • Select Never from the drop-down list
  • Select the save changes 

4. Disable Screen Saver 

Like the power saving mode, the screen saving mode blanks or turns off the screen when it’s not in use.

In order to solve the issue, you should check that the monitor is in screensaver mode. If it is, then you must disable it.

Here are the steps to disable the screen saver:

  • Right-click anywhere on the desktop
  • Now select the “personalization” option 
  • Select the “lock screen” in the left panel of the screen 
  • Now scroll down and look for the screen saver settings 
  • Set the screensaver to none 
  • Then click on the OK option to apply the settings

5. Run The PC In Safe Mode 

Running the PC in safe mode will remove the unnecessary drives and files. It will only leave some basic drivers to work.

It will also stop any application from running on the startup; in order to solve the issue, you should run your PC into safe mode.

Here are the steps to do it:

  • Hold the shift key, then go into the start menu
  • Now click on the power icon while keep holding the shift key 
  • Keep holding the shift key and press the restart button 
  • Now select the troubleshoot, then go to the advanced and navigate to the startup settings 
  • Then select the restart 
  • Now press the f4 key to login into the safe mode 

Now, if the PC is working properly without the screen turning off, it’s most likely that the issue is a third-party application or corrupted driver; uninstall these files and corrupt drivers to solve the problem.

6. Change Power Supply 

If the power supply is not able to supply enough power to the system, the system will not be able to work properly.

In that case, the computer might suffer from various issues such as random system crashes, screen flickering, or other parts that do not perform as they should.

Inspect the power supply to ensure it is not faulty. If it is, then you must replace it with a new one.

7. Update Window 

An outdated window may have communication issues with the other hardware parts that are connected to the PC.

In order to solve the issue, you should update the window with the latest version.

Here are the steps to do it:

  • Click on the search bar and search settings and click on it 
  • Now go into the window to update 
  • Select the security and update tab 
  • Now navigate to the window update for whatever window you’re using 
  • Click on the check for updates. It may take 5 to 10 minutes to proceed
  • If there is any update, then you must download and install it 
  • Once you have downloaded and installed it, restart your PC and turn it on again to see if it works

8. Overheated

The most common issue for the monitor turning off may be overheating. When your monitor is overheated, your monitor turns off automatically.

Dust and vent blockages are the leading cause of overheating. Dust blocks the vents, and heat can not escape and causing overheating.

You should clean the vents properly with the vacuum cleaner before using the monitor.

Another cause of overheating is not balanced room temperature. Before using the monitor, turn on the fan or ac for the balance temperature.

9. Faulty Graphic Card

A faulty graphic card is a common issue for your monitor to keep turning off. You need to determine if your graphic card is defective.

You just need to remove the graphic card and turn on the monitor. If your monitor is turned on, so your graphic card is faulty, you need to replace the graphic card.

If your monitor is not working without a graphic card, you need to clean the graphic card with a brush or cloth.

After cleaning the graphic card, insert it back and turn on the monitor if it works.

10. Check With Another PC 

If you’re still facing issues, you must inspect the monitor for visible damage; if there is, repair it. If it does not resolve the issue, check the monitor with another PC.

If the monitor does not work correctly with another PC, you must replace it with a new one instead of wasting money.

11. Contact Customer Support

If you are still facing the issue with your Samsung monitor after trying all the above steps, contact Samsung customer support.
