just bought this flact lcd screen second hand but it has no users guide or drivers for pc monitor use. TV reception is good but when connected to our new phillips dvd player or to our sony dvd player the images are opf poor quality. Have tried via scarts and the red- yellow - white pins leads.
Seems to be a setting within the screen itself perhaps?
If you go to the samsung website for uk at www.samsung.com/uk/ you can search for that model and download the manual in pdf format. If my link pastes OK, here is where you want to go: http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/download/supportDown.do?group=television&type=television&subtype=tftlcd&model_nm=LE22S86BD&vType=L&mType=UM&dType=D

Most likely a screen problem. Are you able to try another monitor with your PC? If a different monitor works, then the problem is your monitor. Most LCD monitors have a rather short life span (well, much shorter than the heavy old CRT monitors). But whichever kind of monitor you have, it seems to be getting power but is unable to display an image.
If your monitor is an LCD monitor, then the problem could be the backlight. If you take it to a computer repair shop, they should be able to replace the backlight - if it's cost effective to do so. Without knowing more about your monitor it's difficult to judge what the best solution might be. Sometimes it's cheaper and easier to get a second hand screen from Ebay rather than fix an obsolete LCD screen. On the other hand, if you bought the monitor within the last 12 months and spent a lot of money on it, it may well be worth getting it fixed.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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. http://www.badcaps.net http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague
You may have failure in the backlight inverter circuits, power supply, lamps. First thing to look will be the capacitors in the power supply section, look for caps with bulging top/seal. See example of failed SAMSUNG monitors here:
jane657, Hi there. Will you stop pushing the On/Off button on your lcd/fpd. It's Broke. Period. End. Finito!!! You will not fix it. However there is one test that you should do to determine hoe bad the problem is. You will need to reconnect the 931B to a known good pc that has been fully booted and has the WIN-DESKTOP or IE fixya web page showing. quickly connect the931B to the wall outlet and the PC. Turn on the monitor!!! Yes, I know it will only come on for a second..After the screen goes to BLACK, Shine a bright flashlight onto the screen at different angles, 1-2 inches from the screen. Let me know if you see something even though the screen is black. Anyway here are your options as a consumer/user. 1. Check if unit is under warranty. 2. Check withh Samsung to see if they have a SWAPOUT program. You send them your monitor+$40-$90 and they return a refurbished same model to you with a 30 day warranty. 3. Trade in for new monitor. 4. Check with local TV/Monitor repair guy who knows all there is to know about cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes, their power-source(inverter type) and lcd monitor power supplys (SMPS) 5. Repair on your own. Not recommended for amatures with no solid state troubleshooting skills and no instrumentation for support. Bye for now. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aim.com
elainenemeth, Hi, Tell me more! How old is this LCD monitor? Is it out of warranty? Did the "SHUT-DOWN-IMMEDIATE" problem occur without warning? Did the BenQ display a "perfect" image the day before? Did you actually count----1001, 1002----1010 and then it shut down, after pushing the monitor on button. Did you do the "flashlight" test? With monitor connected to a "known-good", fully booted pc with Win Desktop displayed, TURN ON the monitor! Did it display the desktop for 1-2-10 seconds ? What did you see or not see when you pointed the flashlight at different angles about 1-2" inches from the now dark (black) screen? Get back to me with your results. I will offer the best advice possible to you as a consumer/user of LCD/FPD monitor. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com Bye for now.

Quickly go to the Acer website and check FAQ's and while there also find out how to get an RMA to return it. My guess is you have a bad monitor. At $200 roughly for a replacement I would hustle. I am assuming you got nothing but a white screen but did get video on your TV.
