Question about Samsung SyncMaster 214T 21.3" LCD Monitor

4 Answers

Annoying background image

I have this extremely annoying problem with my monitor. A small box - centered on the screen - pops up nearly all the time. It is semi-transparent and simply says "0 [degrees]" degrees = the symbol for angle. It is certainly something integral to the monitor and I do not believe it is associated with a driver or anythign like that. Can anyone provide advice on how to disable this very annoying feature? I have been extremely disappointed with this Samsung monitor, I DO NOT recommend it for anyone else. Ken

    This is not the problem, it does this from the minute that the monitor is turned off, even after weeks of being turned off. It is due to small vibrations, not heat.

Ken, Unplugging the monitor for 48+ hours to disapate all electronics within the monitor may work. otherwise its probably a heat problem. When the monitor heats up something stops doing its job. Tim

I dont think these solutions will help for the issue. I came to know from my vendor that this is the problem related to Micro Controller inside the monitor. So i am gonna replace my DELL monitor with TFT Dell.

Anyhow some Geek must find what made to cause this issue.

Thanks Guys !

Boxes opening on screen often when I am typing. Am I hitting a key that is causing this?


That is usually the development inspector window to view HTML code that runs in the background to give the pages. it is usually a combination of key strokes such as ctrl+shift+k in the web browser Firefox. I would suggest to try a different web browser and go from there, if you don't want to switch more information is needed to help assist your problem (operating system "winddows 7,8, linux, mac", web browser, etc.

The on/off button on my monitor doewn't work. in fact, none of the buttons work right. the annoying this is the screen for adjusting brightness, contrast, imaging, etc. keeps popping up


Sounds like one of the buttons is jammed or broken (stuck). Try pressing each button one at a time. Does one not click or feel like the others? You might need to pry at it a little to unstick it. Let me know if that works or not.

My tv is about 2 years old. It just started burning old images into the screen and they slowly fade away but its very annoying.


Removing burn-in takes time. The best practice is to avoid creating the images.

Whatever the image is coming from has been left on screen for an extended period of time. The TV should be turned off or the source turned off when not watching.

You may find some relief by lowering your contrast (which I am suspecting is still at or near 100% as they come from the store). Bring contrast down to, say 60. Use brightness or backlight to brighten the screen if you think it is too dark with the contrast lowered. (Best picture quality is near 50, the center of the scale.)

Audio adjust screen pop up


I contacted ViewSonic with the same problem. They told me to turn off the monitor and unplug all the cables. Then hold the power button on the monitor for 10 seconds. Turn it back on and it should be gone.

If that doesn't work, I was told to do a memory recall on the monitor by pressing the 1 button and selecting memory recall from the list. It sets the monitor back to factory settings.

I haven't tried any of these yet but hopefully they work for someone.

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.
