Question about Samsung SyncMaster 214T 21.3" LCD Monitor

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

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

Re: Annoying background image

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 !

Check the cable going into the back of your monitor and the cable from your monitor into your computer, one of them is most likely loose.

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.

I have a ViewSonic vx1940w. How do you remove the back to get to the components? The back has no screws or visiable fastners.

There are only 2 screws under the stand plate.
You need to get a small screwdriver and run it around the back plate where it fits into the front surround. It will pop out.
There are several links to manuals if you google the monitor.

I had to replace four electrolytic caps to stop annoying lines scrolling up the screen.

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.

Annoying Nuisance on the monitor

Run your system in 'Safe Mode'. Go to Display settings and set lowest possible resolution. Then restart computer and run windows again in normal mode. Should have normal screen. If this will not work - then under safe mode uninstall graphic card. Then run windows with standard ones and in LOWEST possible resolution install drivers again. I have had it many times and it made swear first time.
