Question about Samsung SyncMaster 17 in. LCD Television
The vga signal on my screen suddenly has become very dim. All the other functions of the monitor are the proper brightness including the onscreen menu in pc mode. Can anyone help? I don't know if it is the cable or the screen or what. It has done this on a pc and a mac. Thanks, Jonathan
This seems to be a known issue with the 170MP monitors. Last time I contacted Samsung they seemed unwilling to replace this model. I took my screwdriver to it to no avail (only reseated an IC). The only solution I've found is jury-rigged at best: Enter the OSD, PC Settings. Third tab from the left is "Color Control." Selecting User Mode here, you can move all the color sliders from 50 (default) to 100. You'll get a minor (in the long run, barely noticable) rise in brightness. Whatever the root cause of this failure is, it's too deep for me to find on my own. Considering previous (read: warrantied) repair orders resulted in a new/refurbished monitor being sent to me, it's possible that we as consumers are unable to resolve this one.
