Question about Samsung SyncMaster 172N 17" LCD Monitor
I know this is not an isolated problem as my friend has the same monitor and it has the exact same problem. In both cases it only manifested after the monitors were about two years old. I have also noticed by internet search that other people have had the same problem with the same model monitor. I have tried latest drivers and even removed Samsung drivers so that the monitor runs on winXP drivers with the same result. Any input would be appreciated.
The problem I have is that when we connect the screen it wiorks fine then blacks out after 5-40min
It then flickers on and off iregularly and every now and then shows distortion and eventually just blacks out
I have two 172N monitors and both now show the same symptoms
We have used different VGA cables and different computers in different locations all with the same result
There is no external influence that we know
