Make sure that you are using the correct driver for your OS. If not the original, you can expect anomalies such as the ones you have described.

It wants you to set the PC video card video output to its native resolution (1280*1024 60hz). Are you running the PC resolution on this mode? otherwise you can turn off the resolution warning by going into the monitor on-screen setup menu to turn off the resolution warning.

Your game is trying to feed the video signal to the monitor that is too high for the monitor to display, you need to set your PC video resolution to 1280 x 1024 @60Hz. If the game needs higher than that, then you need a better monitor. Does your game allow you to lower the video resolution?

I used 2 resistor of 100 ohms (1/8W) to make one of 50 ohms. Like others instruction, just put the 50 ohms resistor between pins 5 and 6 of this chip and the problem is solved.

This is just your computer trying to give you the best resolution your monitor can handle. With the extent of modern technology being what it is, most devices will communicate information between themselves without a human being needed for most of it. This case is a perfect example. Many new monitors will "tell" the computer what their maximum resolution and refresh rate are, and the computer will automatically set your video card to use those settings. Resolution is the "1280x1024" part of the message, which refers to the number of pixels and size of area to be used on the monitor. Refresh rate is the "60Hz" part of the message, and isn't really important unless you see a flicker on your monitor or are getting into the advanced usage of a large, powerful monitor system.

The message you received was because of a miscommunication between the monitor and the computer. The monitor had no factory set value for its "Optimum Mode", so your computer was forced to ask you for input. The recommended mode should work just fine for you, so feel free to ignore that message unless it starts causing you problems, like an odd flicker in your screen or the screen not displaying your desktop properly.

1280 x 1024 @60Hz is the optimum resolution for this monitor.

It sounds like you are connecting with the power on. NEVER do this!

Shut off your computer AND your monitor. When both are off, THEN connect your cable.

Then you can turn the PC and monitor on (the proven old school way is to turn on monitor first, then PC)

If nothing was damaged from connecting them "live", you should be OK.

The backlight invertor seems to be defective.
Check the main power supply board for bad capacitors (visible damage ) and make sure that the invertor tubes do not light up for a moment when you power up the monitor ( in that case their probably is one or more light tube defective (burnt)) --

Samsung... | Answered on Oct 19, 2010


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder jopints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Solder a 50 ohm precision resistor between pins 5 and 6 of the Novatek NT68F63LG

I had this same problem on 3 Samsung 710N displays and this fixed the problem.

I have read others have also been successful but the value of theresistor was slightly different in some cases. I would start with 50ohms as that seems to be a common value fixing most displays.

Here is the reference URL to the ORIGINAL person that solved the problem.
