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

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

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.
