Question about Samsung SyncMaster 245BW Monitor

Open Question

SyncMaster 245BW Just hooked up the new computer and the resolution will not go high enough to take up the full screen (1920 x 1200). If I raise the it to the highest resolution the screen is full of squiggly horizontal lines with the screen saver image quivering behind them. I tried the "do not scale" and setting the resolution to 1920 x 1080 but all I got is the same result as before. I think I should be using this thing as a "boat anchor" instead of a computer monitor. :>)

If you are plugged into a NVIDIA graphics card, use the NVIDIA control panel scaling option to "do not scale" then set the resolution to 1920x1080. This monitor is a 16:10 aspect ratio instead of 16:9 like HD TV's, so it is necessary to turn of scaling from the software and thus give black bars.

Samsung syncmaster 245bw is black screen. Open the monitor and no bulged capacitors.


You need to check and see if you are getting the 24vdc feeding the backlights inverter board, also check the fuse on the inverter. Does the backlights flash on for a second at all?

MY SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER MONITOR SCREEN DOES NOT COME ON WHEN I TRY TURNING IT ON. HOWEVER THE POWER BUTTON BLINKS GREEN. ANY ADVICE? THANKS SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER Monitor (black) 739S O seen at the back


The cable connecting to the PC might be loose, or the part entering the monitor could be.

Try turning the monitor on, and after a few seconds, turn on the computer. You should be able to see the BIOS POST screen text flashing by. If you can't, there is something wrong in your hardware settings.

If you can, however, that's the OS resolution set too high: the monitor shuts down to protect itself. Boot in safe mode by pressing the F8 key immediately after powering up, then lower the video resolution in Control Panel display settings to something safe - 1024 x 768 usually does the trick. At that point you can reboot in normal mode and raise the resolution again to the maximum supported by the monitor (check the manual for that).

I'd say your video card is having trouble pushing the resolution of the monitor. I'd upgrade the video card.

Monitor will not display in native resolution.


sounds to me like they replaced your vga board with another compatible one but not the same exact one I would call the repair facility that did the work and ask questions about how they repaired the monitor like if they used another vga board etc. hope this helps

Samsung Syncmaster 245BW, can't get it up and running !


Most of the time when this happens it is due to a bad monitor, if you have another pc try to hook this monitor up to that one to see if it actually works, these monitors sometimes get damaged during shipment!
