Question about Samsung T260 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!

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Resolution Issue "Not Optimum"
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

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.

Testimonial: "Opened the LCD monitor up, and it was as he said. A bad capacitor. Thanks!! Replied within minutes."
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:
www.ccl-la.com 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.
