Question about Samsung T260 Monitor

Open Question

No display on Monitor

I just purchased a Samsung T260 Monitor. The first thing I did was to plug the new monitor into my PC to make sure my old monitor was indeed dead. At this point I had not changed the graphics card or installed new drivers. The monitor seemed to work properly though the picture was poor. I assumed this was because I was still using the old monitor graphics card and drivers. I then installed the new graphics card and drivers. I turned on the computer and found that the new monitor would only display a small message box (forgot what it said) and nothing else. I then plugged in the old monitor graphics card again but this time the monitor would only display the message box and nothing else. What have I done and how do I fix it? By plugging in the monitor with the old graphics card and drivers have I somehow compromised the new monitor in some way? If I hook up the new monitor to an older computer that I have, the monitor works with very poor quality. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated!

Hi Guys.
I have had this problem and after a bit of searching found that it is a known problem.
Give Samsung a ring and if it's in warranty they will replace it

SOURCE: Samsung GH19LS LCD Monitor wont display computer signals

You should have received two cables with the monitor. One is for VGA and plugs into you video card or computer board . The second one is for DVI digidal video and if you have that cable it plugs into the square connector. Then if you look into your monitor manual or quick setup sheet it will tell you how to connect and set the monitor to either VGA or Digital. I'm sure that is what has to be set. Don't hook up both cables to the monitor and computer. Only use the one. Digital gives you a better picture if your computer has that function. Hope this is helpful. Bud

If you can open up the monitor from the back and get the cover off. Look on the power board and see if there are any puffy capacitors, most of the caps will have a silver flat top but if there are any bad ones, they will have a puffy top that stick up.

If you see any then make sure you replace them with capacitors of the same Uf rating and at least the same volts or more.

If you don't see any puffy caps then that means the screen is bad and the whole monitor would need to be replaced.

Your power supply is going out. LCD monitors have a common issue. The heat buildup in the in the cases cause parts called capacitors to overheat and bulge. When they bulge out the don't operate properly and cause the power supply to not start up correctly or not at all. First thing check the warranty, Most Samsung units have a 3year parts and labor warranty. If it is out of warranty then repair it yourself. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. Check out our web site at: We don't have your exact monitor but you should be able to look at other Samsung guide we have posted and see the parts that need to be replaced. Open your case and replace any capacitors that are bulging and you should be back going again. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for you unit, check our site for details.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

I recommend you buy a new monitor, since just fixing the panel would be more costly then buying a brand new monitor. Check out or for some good deals on new monitors.

The monitor should be replaced, by your description there is more than one issue, it has a screen display problem and several buttons are not responding to any commands, and the monitor is six years old. The cost to repair would not be justified, and a new replacement would be cheaper.

You need to check display resolution settings.
Also make sure graphic driver installed and working fine.
For that when you power up the computer press F8 key 5 to 6 times then you can see safe mode and other menu.
Enter in Enable vga mode and go to control panel->display property->settings change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I just purchased two 40in lcd samsung monitors and connected them via vga to a digital player. One monitor works fine and displays the picture correctly. The other monitor is only displaying the top left...

If the two monitors are identical adn the player works on one then it should work on the other.

Try plugging the monitor that appears "broken" into another device (such as a PC) and see if it works or not.

I'm affraid that this is not a software issue but a hardware one.

If you're not a tech expert all you can do is check the plugs and cables for damage but I seriously doubt that it would help.

The best thing you can do is either go to a service center (and pay for repairs) or buy a new monitor (and pay for a new monitor)

Sorry and best of luck

Screen tearing

You have a high quality monitor with a 5ms response time, so it is not the fault of the monitor which leaves two things. 
1) Cable If you are using a VGA (blue) connector I would reccomend upgrading to a DVI or HDMI cable. Digital cables like HDMI and DVI not only look way better than VGA (analog cables) but they deliver quicker response times, and reduce graphical errors. You Should always run a digital output if possible.  

2) Software In games in the graphics settings, you might want to enable "verticle sync" this will limit the refreshrate of the game to usually 60 fps, which will reduce and possibly eliminate tearing.
