Question about Samsung SyncMaster 540N 15" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Funny monitor problem

When I turn on my computer with the power supply to the monitor present there is no display. And if I restart my computer again by pressing the restart button( may be a few times) then the monitor starts displaying. Sometimes if I switch the monitor on after switching on the PC at a " particular instant" then the diplay starts coming up but that is not always the case. Previously I had a CRT display monitor even that had the same problem, at that time I presumed that it was the old monitor that was giving me the problem and so I changed it with a newly bought samsung TFT but the problem continues. I have even upgraded and downloaded the device drivers for the specific monitor that I have purchased from the official samsung website but that did not help as well. Please suggest me a solution to this problem. I am afraid this frequent restarting of computer will corrupt my system. Thanks

If I were you I would invest in a new video display card. Sounds your card is intermittant, because the chances of a tube type display and a TFT display having the same problem is slim to none. LOL Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread

Have you tried checking with another monitor. Meaning that if the second monitor does not come on then the problem is with your computers mother board. But if the monitor other monitor you check it with comes on then of course it is your monitor.

Please connect an external monitor to the PC removing the present one. If the PC boots and the display stays steady the fault is confirmed to be on the monitor. If so we need to check on the power supply before confirming that it is relative of the main board and will require closer look.
However if the display acts the same manner then PC motherboard has a fault , it can be with the display drivers, the power supply or the mother board.
Take consensus to estimate and decide.

Screen goes blank when first turned on, have to keep restarting m


Hello,

If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

The display turn off after few minutes (blank screen, no message). When it does that, the power led stay green. When I turn it off and on, the display work again for a few minutes and the same problem...


jackperson, Might be internal problem with the units power supply (ac line in to DC conversion) having shutdown issues. You will need to do some reading in my fixya profile for a while and then you will know what to look for inside unit. If not into electronic repair stuff, skip the reading and trade-in unit for new, if current unit is 4, 5, 6 years old. 12fixlouie

The monitor screen goes dark about 10 minutes


Please verify the power option setting present in 'control pannel' option once. If you have selected to turn off the power supply after 10mins, (once the system is in idle state) then the SMPS will stop supplying power.

thanks.

Will not display output from Computer


Probably the video resolution or the monitor Refresh Rate (eg: 50/60/75 Hertz) is set too high in the operating system, which over-drives the monitor electronics and it is unable to display anything.

If you restart the computer manually (hold in the power button for 5 seconds, the computer will shut off, turn it back on again) you will see the normal BIOS and Windows startup display on the monitor, but then as Windows completes it's startup it returns to the error message you see.

To fix this, restart the computer manually and start the computer in Safe Mode. To do this press F8 just before the computer starts to load Windows, and choose Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode, you should see the monitor working correctly.

Now restart the computer in Normal Mode and everything should be fine.

HP desktop monitor problem


hi try this ,,,
  1. Ensure the video cable is connected (and connected to the correct video port).
  2. Turn off the monitor using the monitor's power button and then restart the monitor.
  3. Cycle the power on the monitor as follows:
  4. Turn off the monitor. The power light on the monitor should be off. Leave the computer turned on.
  5. Unplug the power cord.
  6. Wait 5 seconds.
  7. Plug in the power cord.
  8. Press the power button on the monitor to turn on the monitor. One of two things happens:
    1. The image from the computer displays on the monitor and you can use the computer again. This indicates that the monitor was unable to detect that the computer had awakened from suspend mode. Turn the monitor off when it is not being used or disable suspend mode. For some computers, updating the BIOS corrects these types of suspend problems.
    2. The power light on the monitor comes on but the screen displays one of the messages again. The monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer that it can detect and use. Continue using these steps to adjust the Windows display resolution to the Monitor's native (default) resolution
    3. Connect the monitor to another computer that you know is working to determine if the monitor should be serviced or replaced:
      • If the monitor displays an image from another computer, you know that the monitor works. Troubleshoot the video connection and graphics adapter on the computer.
      • If the monitor remain blank when connected to another computer, the monitor signal processing hardware may be bad. The monitor should be repaired or replaced.
      hope it will work for u .. little_angel
