Question about Samsung 913V 19IN BLK LCD

Open Question

Problem monitor Samsung 913V. New, worked for 4 months. Then, did not want to stay on native resolution. Even if fed correct resolution, get message: not optimum resolution. It would then work on lower resolutions. Finally, it does not react at all to any resolution. Unplug the VGA cable, it gives the message: no cable connected! Connect the cable: screen blank. Suspect something went wrong on the input board, because the power supply and screen work properly.That board has the SE7889-LF processor on it. Any ideas, anyone, because it's such a shame to dump it if a small component needs replacing.

SOURCE: syncmaster 913v not optimum mode

I just resolved this problem for my SyncMaster 913N.
It seems to be a known issue, however it can take quite some time for the problem to occur. In my case about 3,5 years, so well out of warranty.

Short term solution: unplug your monitor from power. The switch on the front is not good enough. Pull the plug and leave it for an hour or so (all night if you can). Good chance the monitor will work next time you power it up.
The problem will is likely to come back..

Permant fix requires some basic soldering as per this video:

I just managed it and it has been ages since I soldered a resistor so you may very well be able to do it. I spent $25 on tool and part and saved me from buying a new monitor.

"Input not supported" even though it appears to be displaying correctly.

You will need to go to advanced settings under resolution options and set the display to 60hz refresh rate then go back to resolution and set your native, the problem is its probably trying to default to 75hz and is causing an issue

Samsung syncmaster 913v gives message ' not optimum mode"

The 913V has a native resolution of 1280x1024. If you use a higher resolution than that, you'll get slightly blurry text. If you use a lower resolution, then images will be slightly choppy around the edges.

To get rid of the message, set your resolution to 1280x1024.

In Windows XP, you do this by right-clicking on the background (desktop) and selecting "Properties" to bring up the display properties.
Select the tab marked "Settings" and look for a "Screen Resolution" slider. Move that slider to the right until it displays "1280x1024" and hit "OK"

ViewSonic Optiquest Q7b 17" LCD Monitor has a fuzzy picture

LCD monitor needs to be fed with native resolution from the PC video out, this monitor native resolution is 1280x1024 @60Hz, try that setting to see if it helps before opening up the monitor to look for failed components.

Not optimum mode

This means your computer windows resolution is not display in the correct resolution which your samsung LCD will take.

What you need to do it boot the computer in safe mode. (pressing F8 at start up and select safe mode) This should bring the windows to start up in the generic 800x600 resolution.

Once you are able to see the display in safe mode, go onto the display properties and change the resolution.
* right click on desktop -> properties -> settings

Native resolution suddenly scrolls.

The native resolution for the Acer AL2216W is 1600X1200. It is acting correctly for the resolution you have set it to.

Image not displaying properly

Before assuming it's the monitor, try it on another display card.

It is possible that there is a problem in the configuration of the display card, or a defect in the display card.

Is there a computer service place, or a monitor sevice center near to where you live. You can then take the monitor to have it properly checked for you.

The problem is main board inside monitor which is needed to be changed with new one. So I suggest you to take monitor to the nearest samsung's service center.
