I have a Compaq TFT500 monitor which appears to permanently stuck in sleep / hibernate mode. I can't reset it through it's on screen menu as stated in its manual as the screen is permanently blacked / blanked out.

The Power light is supposed to be green when the monitor is in use but at the moment it is a sort of amber / orange / yellow colour.

Can anyone help me bring it out of sleep mode so I can use it.

Is it correctly connected to the graphics card? Does another monitor work on the same machine?

Yes the old CRT monitor works on it with no problems. Has never gone into hibernation / sleep mode.

It has had work on its innards before according to the previous owner. I think it is a recurring problem with this model but have been unable to find any information in the online documentation for the monitor.
