Question about Samsung Syncmaster 730B 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Picture not filling monitor screen

I have a Samsung, SyncMaster 730B monitor at work that I plug my laptop into. It's been working fine for 3 months.
Now the vertical has been shrunken so that it's not taking up the whole monitor screen.
Adjusting vertical control on the monitor adjustments doesn't work as it won't 'stretch' the image out, it will only move the whole image up or down.
Any help?

For that problem, you should try to system restore your computer to the point before the problem occurred.
That's the way I fixed mine.

SOURCE: I have a Samsung SyncMaster 931c monitor (2.5 yrs

jcacolice, Most likely your 931c will need work done on it. When strange things start to occur with any LCD CCFL backlit display I would suspect the "switch-mode-power-supply" first thing!!! If unit is out of warranty you or someone will need to inspect and troubleshoot it. A good place to start will be to see some DIY videos on YOUTUBE. Try search of "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" and learn all you can about the TOP CAUSES of monitor failure. Then visit (FYI) www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and www.badcaps.net for more info. Explore ALL your options before you do anything. Then get back to us here at fixya if you still need some asssistance. Read some of my other responses in my fixya profile and other those of other tech's on fixya.
Hope to see you back on fixya with a plan of action!! 12fixlouie

SOURCE: Samsung SyncMaster 730B LCD monitor isn't backlit at all

Most failure in LCD monitors are due to cheaply made caps being use. If you are going to DIY repair, please read below, or if you are going to have it fixed then at least you will know if you are being ripoff or not.
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.

Just downloaded windows 7 onto desktop. screen is now too large. i have a samsung syncmaster 730b and it wont let me change the resolution to make the screen smaller


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. For you to be able to change the resolution of the screen you need to install the driver of your video card or onboard video and it will fix the problem.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Vertical strip on the screen


You have failing T-CON board which is part of the LCD panel assembly, it will get worst with more lines, new panel will be needed. You can try reseating the ribbon cable on the T-CON board.

Disconnect the monitor from the docking station and plug it directly in the laptop connector. If all is well it might be the docking station. I had one crash a computer and had to rebuild the operating system to make it work again.

My acer laptop with windows xp will not allow me to select the optimal resolution for my samsung moniter. How do I fix this?


The Samsung SyncMaster 730b is a 17-inch analog and digital TFT-LCD monitor delivering crisp, clean text and bright, vivid colors. This display offers a 600:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 1280 x 1024 resolution, 160/160 degree viewing angle, scanning frequency of 30-81 kHz horizontal and 56-75 Hz vertical and 0.294mm pixel pitch
The SyncMaster 730b display offers the option of using either a digital or analog interface for viewing images and text. The Digital Video Interface (DVI) ensures a shaper, cleaner image and a more accurate representation of the original video source. Since video starts out digital in a PC graphics card, the digital output is directly interfaced to the digital input of the LCD panel and always provides the optimum quality image. In addition, no adjustments are required with a digital display, even when randomly changing resolutions. Input connectors for this display include 15-pin D-sub and DVI-D. Available in black, the SyncMaster 730b delivers a maximum of 16.2 million colors. The monitor is Windows Plug and Play DDC 2B compatible
The important stuff here would be the following:
(1) 30-81 kHz horizontal and 56-75 Hz vertical
(2) SyncMaster 730b delivers a maximum of 16.2 million colors
(3) 1280 x 1024 resolution
nVidia card settings should not exceed these monitor parameters. The monitor is not designed for more performance output without increasing liability toward failure. ?. Put your card settings, under the nVidia tab, at the following:
(a) Refresh rate set at 75 Hz
(b) Set colors at 16 million
(c) Set resolution slightly less than 1280 x 1024
It?s quite possible your monitor is at fault, but start with its optimal parameter settings for the display card first. The display card probably exceeds the monitor?s capabilities. Hopefully, this will stabilize your PC session and the blank outs cease if hardware is not faulty
