Question about Samsung SyncMaster 731B 17" LCD Monitor
When I turn on my monitor, it flashes analog and digital. How can I get just digital?
Your monitor should have come with two cables. One is for analog and the other is for digital and is rectangle. Before turning on the computer connect only the Digital cable to your monitor and the video card on the computer. Most monitors will automatically seance the Digital and operate when you start up the computer. Make sure the monitor is ON when the computer starts. Your manual should have instructions that will help.
DO NOT CONNECT BOTH CABLES UP. Only the one needed.
Hope this helps. Bud

Double check the monitor cable, both going to the monitor, and going to the computer. Ensure it's securely connected. If this doesn't change anything, try rebooting your computer. When the power light flashes, it's in sleep mode and doesn't detect either an analog or digital signal - so either your computer has gone into sleep mode (you can awaken it by hitting any key or moving the mouse) or the cable isn't attached securely. Since your computer is brand new, it's unlikely that anything has broken down already. Another thing to check is to make sure that the resolution in your Display Settings is the correct resolution for the monitor - although it's hard to do this if you can't see what you're doing.
Best of luck, hope this helps!

To clarify, you know that analog is referring to the VGA 15 pin video input, and digital is referring to the DVI video input, right? You can't have the digital video unless you use the DVI input, which requires a DVI output from your computer (and a DVI cord of course).
If you already knew this and you mean that it won't switch over to your DVI, then there could be several problems. Most of them being with your DVI signal source (computer). Try booting the PC with ONLY the DVI cord attached between the PC and the monitor. If you have a VGA cord plugged into either, UNPLUG IT FROM BOTH ENDS.

1. this may be due to cable select and or cable not being secure at connection point
2.check your instruction manual for proper setup for digital signal to the LCD monitor and the to your video source.

Hi, 12fixlouie here. LCD monitor may have intermittant solder joint on power supply board inside unit. May only need you to resolder it to fix. Locating it is a whole other problem in itself!!! If not into monitor "teardown" and all the other stuff that you will need to attempt a repair, then let me know right away. 12fixlouie
