Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Samsung Syncmaster 204B 21 inch lcd monitor that is having an increasingly darker screen. I have adjusted the brightness all the way up to no fix. When I turn the computer on, it takes nearly a half hour before you can even read the screen properly. Now though, the monitor has been on for the entire day, yet it has not gotten bright enough to do much of anything. Gaming on it is now impossible. Is the monitor on it's way out?

I have a SyncMaster as well, and it has been fine for 5 years. What you are describing sound like the backlight is getting dimmer, which is either a power supply or control board, neither of which are easy to replace. With good monitors getting below $150, I would have a hard time spending too much money to get an old monitor fixed.

Does the brightness keep increasing / decreasing or only the menu remains on ? If it keeps increasing / decreasing, that particular switch must be defective. Need to replace the switch. Samir

How long have you had the monitor. It sounds like a defective backlight. Usually when the circuit driver for the backlight starts to go bad, the monitor will blink. If this is the case, eventually the monitor will not turn on at all.

Upper half of the monitor is darker


I would try an auto-adjust first see if that helps any, also you could try it on another PC to make sure its not your video card on your PC. Another option is to reset the screen to its factory defaults see if that does anything.
