LCD problems... Can you help me?

Hello, I have a Samsung 710N lcd display and I have a problems with changing screen resolution on it... I changed once resolution to 1280x1024x75Hz and then my problems started. A message appeared on my screen that says : Not optimal resolution 1280x1024x60Hz Then I restarted my PC and I saw same message on black background. I waited for a few hours and try again, then I got a picture, so I could see my desktop wallpaper. I left PC to work few minutes IDLE and when I got back the same message appeared. So I reinstall my operating system and install XP sp2. Everything seems to be right, but resolution was DEFAULT (800x600x60Hz) so I wanted to change it before installing monitor drivers, and then I got the same message. I was sending monitor to service,and they say that all electronical devices function properly and there is maybe monitor's driver wrong. All ideas are welcome... Forwardly greatful, icer

Re: LCD problems... Can you help me?

I already made an investgation about it, seem s that the main board of the lcd "pass away", so it only works few minutes before shut down the screen and show us the famous warning.
The only solution is to change the circuit board, not the power board for the lcd. definetly is NOT a PC failure

Re: LCD problems... Can you help me?

I've got also the same problem. I bought the monitor less than two years ago and I started having problems last week.

Samsung here in Argentina offers 3 year warranty. If I find the purchase ticket I will be able to use the warranty if not I will just have to use it in 1024x768.

My 710N has had the same problem, the serviceman said that it's a hardware failure and after 3 weeks, they returned another one to me because they didn't have replacement parts (IC). But recently, the problem come back, I have to put it to my shed :(

Re: LCD problems... Can you help me?

It has nothing to do with your computer, if you put the monitor on a different computer it will do the same thing. the message comes directly from the monitor itself. you have to keep your screen resolution at 1280 x 1024

My syncmaster 710n is not working. I get the box where it ses what resolution si the right one, but the syncmaster 710v works normaly. Does that means my 710n can`t be repared anymore? Thanks

Not completely sure what you're saying. Here's what I got out of your problem:

You have a Syncmaster 710n that displays a box saying the best resolution is _____ x _____, but your Syncmaster 710v doesn't show that message.

The main question I have to ask you is whether or not you see the screen or display behind the message on the Syncmaster 710n.

In either case, I doubt that this is a hardware problem. I also highly doubt that your monitor cannot be repaired. Try the following:

1) If you see the display/screen is showing behind the message box, this is almost definitely a setting issue. You need to press the menu button on your monitor and look for an option that says something like "display resolution message" or "ideal resolution message", or something else like that. Then you need to change the setting for that option, for example if "Yes" is selected, then you need to change it to "No" or if "Enable" is selected you need to change it to "Disable".

If you have the manual for the monitor, it should make it easier to know what setting to change. If not then go here:

and download the Manual that you need.

2) If nothing is being displayed behind the message, try to change the display settings of your computer. While using a different monitor, try the following: If in XP, right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust the resolution to something compatible with your monitor (like the one it suggests you to change it to). If in Vista/7, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there.

Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

Half of the screen is black - Samsung SynchMaster 710N

I am a technician-informatic. I have repaired about 80 Lcd Samsung monitors with theese problems. I offer the repair manual.
Manual has been done with the experience of the repairing Samsung Lcd monitors. Manual was made by me and shows how to open monitor, how
to solve dark screen problem, how to check and replace capacitors, how to solve the problem non-optimal mode (without reprogramming MCU or
changing the main board) photo are included. 100% functional. The repair process is very simple 30-40min. (does not need a lot of
experience in electronics and expensive instruments) and is not expensive. With this manual you can solve problems by yourself and save

"Not Optimum Mode 1280x1024 60Hz"
- The monitor turns on but turns off by itself, the LED blinks green.
- If you detach from the PC points to "control cable" the picture runs continuously in the vertical direction or presents while line , and
as soon as it is reconnected, the monitor goes off.
- The monitor does not turns on and dont dispaly anything, the LED blinks green-lit, if you detach from pc points to "control cable".
- The monitor turns on, works well some time, but after a window apiers "Not optimum mode. Mode recommended 1280X1024 60Hz"
- The monitor turns on, works well only with low resolution 800x600, when try to change a window that reads "Not optimum mode. Mode
recommended 1280X1024 60Hz"

the manual you can find on ebay (my ebay name is asnerejas123):

When you can't change the screen resolution then most likely only the default VGA driver has been installed. You need to install the graphics driver of the video card that is installed in your computer.
To check which graphics driver is installed, click on Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advance - Adapter tab. If the graphics adapter is set for Standard VGA then the graphics driver was not installed.

Samsung 913V LCD Monitor--No display when vga plug plugged in

1. please check by pressing num lock or caps lock key to verify that your machine is booting up, if yes then check the cable and if after changing the display cable it doesnt show up anything, it means you have a faulty unit

2. if numlock/caps lock key doesnt work, then your machine is not booting up, please check for loose ram etc.

Samsung Syncmaster 710n no display and no LED light

The power button should be on the FRONT BOTTOM RIGHT. and there should be a little led/light next to it. make sure everything is plugged in correctly and press the power button, the led should light up, and then boot your computer.
