Monitor stays blank after power on-off


Hello!

First off I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong place, I'm at my wits end and I'm tired of blindly obeying the "solutions" I've been finding from Google searches.

OK so this issue started from trying to solve another issue which I will mention second.

I created a xorg.conf file by following the console mode steps of disabling lightdm, creating the file then restarting lightdm.

AFTER DOING SO, now my monitor stays blank when I turn it off and back on again.

THE ORIGINAL ISSUE, turning the monitor off then on results in me having to MANUALLY change the screen resolution EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Annoying, to say the least.


As you can assume it's a Debian XFCE system, and I'm using a TV as my monitor.

The original issue has been a PITA for as long as I've had the system (about 3 years) but now that I tried some genius' solution of creating the xorg file, now I have the issue I'm pressing here today.

What do.

The first thing I would do is test that monitor with a different computer, even if it means lugging it over to a friend's house.

There is a good chance that this is a hardware issue with the monitor; that possibility needs to be ruled out before mucking about further with software.

Hi:

I have my Vizio T.V. as my monitor and the only thing that fixed it for me is to plug in the vga to the back of the T.V. and than plug in the opposite end of the vga cable directly into the graphics card.

The screen was still blank but what solved it was going into the settings and putting the T.V. in RGB mode.

I'm not good with the xorg.conf file but I think that's what you might need if the above doesn't help.
So....I'll leave that file for a member with experience with that.

Maybe this Debian WiKi on Xorg will help.

Sorry but no, dude, it's not. Please re-read my post.

This issue started by creating xorg.conf. That alone indicates there's a software mishap. Also considering that I mentioned I've been using this monitor for 3 years.

To anyone else that thinks it's hardware:

when I power the monitor off, then on again, blank unresponsive screen HOWEVER

I can switch into console mode and bam it's back, Ctrl+Alt+F7 and I'm back into GUI.
But then I'm at the original issue where I have to manually change the resolution back to the correct setting LOL

Have a look at the xrandr command to change the resolution.

again, not a hardware issue, the TV is TOTALLY fine (as far as blanking after on/off)
this issue started AFTER CREATING xorg.conf

I tried deleting it, but whatever creating it did PERSISTS after deletion.

AGAIN I REGRESS NOT A HARDWARE ISSUE DEFINITELY SOFTWARE
THIS ISSUE DID *****NOT***** HAPPEN BEFORE CREATING xorg.conf
Thank you

I know how to change the screen resolution. It just doesn't stay persistent.
I repeat, I have to change the screen resolution every. single. time. the monitor is plugged in, turned on-off (the ORIGINAL issue), etc.

Let's get to that AFTER we figure out why it has started to blank after on-off.
Thank you.

Please show us is your xorg.conf, Xorg.0.log, xrandr output and TV model.

If it were me, I'd still test the monitor; certainty is better than supposition--coincidences are rare, but they do happen.

I am aware of the Hotplug option in xorg, I added that per advice I read somewhere else concerning the on-off issue, it appears it has no effect whether I have it there or not, I'm leaving it there just in case.

Now what?

You skipped providing the TV model, necessary for any of us to determine its unique specifications.

Your Xorg.0.log indicates you are still using the xorg.conf file. If you think you need to continue using it, then it needs to be matched to your display's specifications. Its current generic state is littered with unnecessaries having nothing to do with display, and almost certainly is in need of tailoring specifically to your own TV's specifications. 1360x768 is rather unusual, 1366x768 much more common.

What exactly is it that you have been having to change the resolution manually to?

What does 'inxi -G -c0' show when X is correctly functioning?

Before I give output of that command, another thing I'd like to note is I just tried to play my TV playlist in VLC and WHOA we have more issues. Video playback is WEIRD.

Look at this point I just want to revert whatever the heck xorg did when I created the file. I went 3 years without a xorg.conf, I thought creating it would fix the in-persistent resolution issue and it looks like it opened another can of worms.

Also I will repeat this again,

everything started after I created the xorg.conf file (today)
none of the main issues I've discussed to day occurred before (that's 3 years with no problems aside from the in-persistent resolution)

I'M SURE the xorg.conf file has errors, come on, I've stated at least 5 times now that it's what started all of this.

At this point I'd like to undo the changes caused by it's creation (which cannot be done by deleting it evidently)

As far as changing the resolution manually, nothing unusual, I'll either do xrandr, or the xfce display settings. But my preferential resolution is not persistent. Yeah I'm sure my resolution is a weird one, I use this monitor at a distance with extremely high DPI, that's intentional.

And the output of that command is command not found, looks like I'll have to install it.

How did you get the xorg.conf file? You can try again this way. Kill the xserver
Code:
$ ps aux | grep gdm|X | awk '{print $2}' | xargs sudo kill $1
Then run
Code:
$ sudo xorg -configure
That will create /root/xorg.conf.new. Copy the new file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf. And try again.
