Have you run the microsoft updates? Start, All Programs, Microsoft Update (or windows update). Select Custom. And make sure you get all the updates and service packs.

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.

I have a mac mini osx10.4 with a 512N syncmaster samsung monitor. The monitor worked fine for 2 years and up till the last month while I am on the computer the monitor will go black with a message saying...


samabbott, Toni, The very first thing to check is Samsung warranty.. If not valid you will need to check and see if Samsung has a cash+old unit swapout program for refurbished same model??? Will this 512N do same thing if connected to different pc? If so, then I would suspect the unit's power supply. Whenever strange or weird stuff starts to randomly take place with an LCD display, I would first check the "switch-mode-power-supply"! Have you tested the pc with different Known Good lcd unit? Try the above stuff and report back with a new comment. 12fixlouie

Turns off when a signel is connected to it


Try to connect LCD to another computer.
If it is ok something then went wrong with your PC.
Either your display card defect or the CPU need to reinstall the OS (operating system).

Samsung SyncMaster 570 VTFT


Get a new LCD monitor, and sell the bad one on ebay. LCD monitors are very cheap now.

Here are some places to buy monitors, I never buy from a retail store:
http://www.geeks.com/products.asp?cat=MON

http://www.tigerdirect.com/

http://www.newegg.com/

Currently Geeks.com has $1.99 shipping on several items.

Type this search string into ebay to help find what bad LCD monitors are selling for, (broke*, bad, as is, as-is, part*, fix, repair, damage*) lcd monitor*
