Question about Matrix HANNSFREE 19 Analog and Digital Widescreen Active TFT LCD Display HW-191D Monitor

1 Answer

Switch from Analog to Digital

Things changed after hooking up monitor. Game shuts down completely when certain "moves" are used. This did not happen before new monitor was hooked up. In fact, I was using game with best sound in order to decide if I wanted to use monitor speakers. (no) Game worked yesterday. Monitor is only change. While troubleshooting, I found monitor was on Analog mode. That doesn't sound right. I tried to switch to Digital mode and got nowhere. I found no valid way switch to Digital. I'm not even sure that's the problem. I used the buttons on the front of the monitor to try to solve this then went into troubleshooting programs. Couldn't find a HannsG troubleshooter. By the way, I don't have a widescreen. HannsG JC199D is what I have. Square flatscreen. The directions given by HannsG are choppy and seem to be a translation. (someone did not a grip on their prepostions) My depth of knowledge of computers is a mixed bag.

Re: switch from Analog to Digital

To move to Digital (you need to have a DVI cable for this)

I'm using the monitor now and typing these instructions Mine is a HW191D Silver:

Button Layout:

(1) Menu
(2) Auto Adjust (does nothing when in digital mode)
(3) Move up in menus
(4) Move down in menus
(5) Power

Press the Top (1) button to display the OSD Main Menu

The Press the button Next to the Bottom (4) twice (Input Setting should be highlighted)

Press the Top button (1) once to allow you to select between Analog and Digital (use the button next to the bottom (4) to select between the two)

Press the Top button (1) and it will change to the input that you selected.

If you selected Digital and you don't have a DVI cable connected, the display will go black and then return to Analog (VGA)


I hope that helps

How do I turn off the Samsung sync-master p2050 monitor?

If it doesn't turn off by holding the power button down for 10 seconds, then it cannot be turned off by the power button alone, like most modern lcd monitors. Most modern monitors goes into standby mode. To completely cut power, you must unplug the power cable.
I've enclosed a link to the install manual for reference.

Inoperative monitor

Here are a couple things to try.

1. try the input select button on the monitor (The minnus button) without pressing the OSD menu button 1st, see if it changes to analog.

When the DVI self-test screen is up, it is indicating monitor is in DVI mode.

2. If that doesn't work, try a DVI to analog converter on the DVI port on the monitor and connect the analog cable to the converter. See if you get any video that way.

3. If you can access the On-Screen Display (OSD Menu) perform a factory reset.

Monitor switchs between digital and analog

I had a similar problem, the monitor was going blank once in a while (since I don't have a VGA input), so I switched the Auto Source feature to "Manual" and so far it's working fine for the past 2 days, if I run into the problem again I'll update this message.

On the side panel of your monitor, press the top button to access the menu, scroll down to the setup menu (by pressing the 3rd button down on the panel), press the 4th button down to enter the setup menu, scroll down to "Auto Source", use the 4th button to select, "Auto" & "Manual" are your choices.. press the 2nd button down to select "Manual" then the top button to exit the menu(s).

This monitor is set up to be able to do multi display with the software included. Utilizing both Digital and Analog signals. I'm not using this feature so I'm not sure how switching the Auto Source off will affect the performance of this feature.

Problem with Digital Input


You may need to switch monitor selection in your Display Properties. You need to activate twin/dual view in your Display Properties. Right click on any clear area of your desktop, click on Properties, click on Settings tab, select monitor 1 or 2 depending which is your primary and which is your secondary (analog/digital). Check (or uncheck-whichever works) on box "Extend....". Apply, OK.

There is an application that is supposed to facilitate twin or dual view configuration, UltraMon. This may be better/safer way to address your concern.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you have other concerns.

Good luck and kind regards.

THE ONLY WAY THIS WILL CHANGE IS IF YOU HAVE A DIGITAL INPUT SOURCE CONNECTED to this mointor like HDMI AS THIS MOINTOR AUTOMATICALLY SENSES ANALOG SIGNALS AND DIGITAL INPUT SIGNALS if a digital signal is available it will switch over if a digital input singal is not available you will only be able to use the analog option

Screen shutting down

Well, Gestion Alim is French for "Power Management." It means that your computer is shutting off power to the video using the ACPI power settings, probably stand-by or hibernation. Bring up the Power Management settings in your operating system (in Windows, it's the Display icon in the Control Panel) and change them to something more reasonable. If you want to disable them completely in Windows, change to "Presentation" and make sure that hard disks and display are both set to "Never" shut-off.
