Question about Samsung SyncMaster 1701MP (Silver) 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Problem with display

My monitor is driving me crazy! after about a half hour it goes screwy! The best way I can describe it would be a colored negative, lowering the contrast on the screen makes it a little bearable, though it's still too distorted for reading. Funny thing is, after I turn it off for a couple hours it goes back to normal and then the process repeats itself.

    Just an update and some info I forgot to add in my last post; the monitor is a samsung syncmaster 1701mp, and I've found that raising the contrast on the monitor and lowering it on my vid card will give me a clear screen, though it's shaded grey. Any help would be appreciated!

It sounds Heat related. As the monitor heats up, it begins going crazy. Maybe unplug and blow out with compressed air.
Hope this gives you some ideas.

SOURCE: 931B tries to come on but shuts back off

Problem solved by changing 3 capacitors (C112, C113, C316).

Replace the 470uF 25V with a good quality low ESR type and the two 820uF 25V with 1000uF 25V low ESR types.

The 1000uF caps should be 10x20 in size, however I managed to get 13x20 caps in, but it was a bit tight.

SOURCE: No display on SyncMaster 920NW after reboot from power failure

Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. Look in our monitor repair section for step by step repair guide for this model it should be the same power supply as the 930. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

SOURCE: Laptop LCD goes black after a few seconds

Hello,

Yes, The pink tint is an indication that the backlight is failing. Now the backlight is basically dead, the best way to get back going is to do an Ebay search for your model laptop and get a new screen. Most screens can be purchased for around $50.00 - $70.00 and they are very easy to swap. Email me if you need more info.

You could have a faulty inverter board or faulty CCFL lamp which can cause the screen to flash.

How to change the 'Contrast' and 'Brightness' on the monitor screen


Bootup your computer and display your Windows Desktop. Make sure yourmonitor stays on for at least half an hour before you begin, so that itis properly warmed up.


Seta pure black image on the monitor so you can adjust the brightness. Toget a pure black image, do the following: Choose Start, then ControlPanel, then Display. This will open the Display Properties dialog box.Click the down arrow next to the representation of the desktop color inthe Color field. Choose black from the color palette, then click OK.


Maximizethe Brightness control on your monitor, then slowly reduce it until theblack of the image perfectly matches the black at the edge of thephysical screen. This puts the brightness at the proper setting.


Open a screen with a plain white background soyou can adjust the contrast. One of the best ways to do this is to open aword-processing document without any text in it. Gradually reduce the contrastsetting of your monitor until the white area of the screen begins to lookslightly gray or off-white. Then gradually increase the contrast until thewhite area on your monitor is pure white. This will give you the proper whitebalance. Now you've got your monitor ready for peak performance.

Hope this may help you solve your problem.

My monitor goes to black. i power off and on and


Your problems describe a bad Power Inverter. It's a small circuit bard inside the monitor, it powers the CCFL lamp of your monitor. Could be cheap to replace, but in most cases you just buy a new one. It could also be a bad CCFL lamp.

42" Polaroid LCD loses most colors


Try replacing your lcd controller. It's the board that actually makes the screen display the picture. Usually you will see the colors getting a little screwy and then the longer you have the tv on the hotter it gets and the worse it gets. I had one that started to look silvery then got worse as it got warmer. For lack of better ways to describe it, it was like you were watching tv on a crazy acid trip. Once you change the controller it should be ok. If that doesn't work 99% chance it's a bad lcd panel. I've seen about 6 of those all with similar issues as you have, they were all brand new tv's and all Sharp Aquos.

Try to use other monitor and check that there is still that problem or not. If not, the problem is from monitor otherwise, it would be from CPU.
