Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

I have a syncmaster220 wm monitor and it dosen't power up. I have had it for 7 months and just yesterday it was operating ok. I unhooked it from the desktop computer and hooked it up to my laptop with the power cable plugged directly into the wall. Still no response. Should I take it back to the vendor for a replacement?

Hi I am mervin and this is the only thing that i can tell you 
The power board on the inside is broken and yes it happens. This is a common problem with the samsung range I receive 9 to 15 monitors a week with this problem, the best is to take it back to the store and have it send for repairs remember that you still have a 1 year warranty on the unit it will take 2-3 weeks to get it repaired or faster if the repairer is fast

When you tried it in your laptop.. did you use the function keys to try to get image on your monitor?
check your laptop documentation it shoud tell you how you can get the image in another monitor or get to show on both, your laptop lcd screen and your monitor or on only on your monitor. if you did try that as per your laptop documentation... you may want to read up on your monitors warranty.. you're within the year so should be ok.. get the receipts of your purchase ready.

How do I unhook the back of the monitor?


Disconnect the Power Cord by pulling it firmly straight back or down depending on the monitor. Loosen the two screws on the video cable and pull the cable off.

Hi all,my AIO OneTwo M3851 is showing only black screen when pressing power button.the fan is running power light is lit.what maybe the problem?


Dear Rei Garcia,
Simplest thing first: Check the monitor. If it is ok, then try booting into "SAFE MODE" ...Hang on Rei...just did a search on "AIO One Two M3851" & initial hits talk about a LAPTOP? You have posted in DESKTOP PC's? IF it is a laptop, then try pluging a known good monitor into the video-out socket - ( usually a VGA output); if the second monitor works ok, then you need a new monitor. If the 2nd monitor doesn't work, then it looks like your graphics adaptor may be "had it"? GBU!

My acer aspire am3420 will not power on


the way to troubleshoot this is to unhook everything except the monitor and see, that means remove the drives, the ram and the cards if there are any. See if it boots. Most likely it is the power supply though

All my wires in my monitor r unhooked where they go can you tell me.


If your wires are unhooked, Usually new monitors wires are colour coded , for example, blue to blue, yellow to yellow etc.
If your wires are not colour coded, There is only one way the wires can go, They won't fit just anywhere. If they fit into one connector, then that will be where it needs to go.

Hope this helps

Monitor comes on for 2 seconds and then goes all black. What type of problem do I have?


May be you have set "Changed" the setting of your monitor power. If it's set then try this step and see whether it's helpful to you or not. In Windows 7, Vista, or XP, to change the power management settings. To change power management settings in Windows 7, Vista, or XP: Note: If this doesn't match what you see, refer to About navigation settings in Windows.
For Windows 7 and Vista From the Start menu, select Control Panel. Then choose Power Options.
From the list in the left panel, click Choose when to turn off the display or Change when the computer sleeps.
Set your options. For each action, "Turn off the display:" and "Put the computer to sleep:", you can select times ranging from 1 minute to Never.
Click Save changes.
Windows XP From the Start menu, select Settings, and then Control Panel. Double-click Power Management or Power Options. From the "Turn off monitor:" drop-down menu, select a time from After 1 min to Never. Click Apply, and then click OK.

All the Best!

Attempting to install tft lcd monitor on new processer, have intall disc, but monitor will not come on ????


Hello.

Be certain that the install disc software works with your operating system. What specific monitor and your operating system (Windows 7, etc.).

Also, be certain that the monitor cable is connected to a USB port. Try another port.

When you said "not come on" do you mean no power or a dark screen ?

Try your monitor on another PC to see if monitor problem.

Hope this helps.

My monitor screen is ok for awhile but suddenly turns a dull yellow color. I just bought it a few months ago.


Hi,
you must adjust the display settings in the software program that was being used to change the display setting.
  • If you have a flat panel LCD monitor, unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor.
  • Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet.
  • If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad.
  • follw the another steps-
  • Replace the monitor power cable.
    1. Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
    2. Replace the video cable. Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
    3. If the monitor does not work after replacing the cables, replace or service the monitor
  • Thanks,

    Samsung syncmaster 953bw


    Oct 23, 2009- This is how it went for me..I have a Samsung SYNCMASTER2.gif 2053BW. I leave my monitor on and let it hybernate when I shut down PC. I'm 3 months outside of my warranty. Two weeks ago something started happening. I boot PC and video doesn't come up for 10 minutes, and when it came up it worked perfect. VC/Monitor/MB?? It became 20 minutes and ...now..I have the analog/digital box in top left screen, power light on monitor flashing, no menu available on monitor and none of the other buttons work for anything. I test the monitor on Laptop..nothing(same as above)..I break out the old(working) monitor from deep within the closet. Plug it in and I'm up and running. So...

    HOW TO OPEN A SYNCMASTER 2053BW

    NO SCREWS!!! Assuming that the stand mount has been pulled out..The seam around the screen frame is where you start. The frame has the prongs, the back cover has what the prongs slip over.The frame is coming off first! I got the side to open by finger, then used a small standard screwdriver to pry ever so gently(lifting frame from rearcover). Leave the power button assembly on the frame, pull wire only a little to relax any tension..you get about 3/4" in extra taped to panel. The hard part is done.;) Still holding the frame...Now lift the panel (where the power button assembly wiring goes under panel) with the power housing that is under it as a whole and you will see where the powerbuttonassemble detaches.Remove frame. Now..holding edges of panel into back cover, lift and flip the whole thing over and place panel face down on a perfectly flat surface..a towel on my desk works. Lift and remove back cover.Your now looking at the back of the board housing. The ribon is simple, on the panel end of the ribon, squeez the outer clips together and slide it away against the panel..The secondary tin plate is removable, two clips super close to where the sets of wires come around the housing and into the panel.Unhook the 4 plugs(pink inside/blue outside)...Now lift the power housing off of the panel. The big board has the power. One screw to remove a ground plate first. Two screws to remove power board. Pics from phone.56ec44b.jpg
    aae8fab.jpg
    Reassemble but DO NOT re-snap the frame into place....yet... Test it! There is a reason the caps got hot in the first place, therfore it has a good chance of happening again. This is not fullproof...but.....mine has been on now for close to 6 hours with no glitches whatsoever. So I have resnapped mine back together. I hope you can too. Oct 23, 2009- I must also add that this is one of the best producing monitors I have ever seen...in 60hz. The clarity is top notch. If you purchase one get the extended warranty. FYI...I paid $4.00 for those caps.

    Monitor not working


    It may well be dead. Try testing the monitor on another working PC. Also try a working monitor on the problem PC. Then you will know whether it's the monitor or the PC graphics card that's faulty.
