Turn On/Off Screen - LCD Screen



  • Hello 🙂

    I have an LCD Screen and I’d like to turn it off when I’m not using the magic mirror.
    My problem is that the tv displays the brand’s name for 5 seconds when it is turned on.

    I can’t figure out a way to solve this problem…
    Do you let your screen On 7/24 ?

    Thank you.



  • i also see the “brands name” when turning it on, but cant disable it.
    switching the monitor (standby/wakeup) on a Raspberry Pi:
    tvservice -o
    tvservice -p

    @BillyCallahan Based on what @Dom1n1c said: My screen does not show the brand when it wakes up from standby, sometimes you might be able to find an option in the internal menu of the screen.

    As for triggering the tvservice commands, there are modules that do it automatically based on a PIR-Sensor or via a webcam. They switch on the screen when someone is moving in front of the mirror, and switch it off after a fixed time (e.g. 60 seconds).
