Go to system preferences > displays, then there's an option to rotate the display. You'll also need the corresponding cable to connect it. Enjoy the mac!

SOURCE: Samsung SyncMaster 710N Monitor SLEEP MODE


The monitor is not going to sleep the power supply board is shutting down. If you can solder you should be able to repair the monitor yourself. The problem is caused by blown capacitors on the power board. Go to our web site at : We have pictures of what to look for. Open your monitor and look at the power supply board for any blown capacitors, replace all that you find. The replacement parts can be ordered from several places on the internet or we can supply them for you. The replacement parts will need to be high temp and will be marked 105c. The values you need to get will be marked on the sides of the ones you take out but will be something like 220uf, 470uf, or 1000uf etc. and then a voltage rating. When you install the new ones be sure to insert them with the polarity stripe going the same direction as the old ones come out. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for $35 plus return shipping. If you have any questions just let us know

I hope this helps if so please rate our solution.

Get Your Samsung Syncmaster 245bw 24in monitor to rotate

Samsung ships this monitor in two flavors according to my converstation with L2 tech support, the stand that rotates and the one that does not. According to L2, I have the one that supposedly does not, as the one that does says so on the outer carton. But the stand has a round mount that attaches to a 200 x100 mounting hole bracket that attaches to the back of the monitor. But out of the box even with about 20 pounds of force it only rotates about 3 degrees clockwise or counter clockwise and then hits a hard stop (like a pin) and there is no release button. You cannot rotate it....yet. So here is the trick. You need to remove the 4 screws that hold the mount to the back of the monitor and remove it from the mount. Now when you look at the rotate mechanism you we see a phillips head lock screw....remove it. Remount the monitor and now it will rotate as it was designed to do. My guess is that when Samsung sells this monitor with the "optional rotate" feature, they get a few more bucks for it! Hope this helps...BBRAND.

There will be buttons on the front of the monitor where you can change the position of the screen, you could also do this in the display driver on your macbook although I couldnt tell you exactly how on that particular mac, pretty sure the menu onthe monitor will get it sorted though.

Brightness automatically going low when the brightness is at 100

hello, please make sure the magicbrite option is not set to "dynamic contrast" as this will change the contrast levels by itself, change the settings by pressing the down arrow touch key on the monitor, change it to any other setting, game mode is blinding on my one (when the monitor works, but thats another story!!!) good luck with samsung customer care centre 0870SAMSUNG (uk)

Samsung T220 monitor hook up to new macbookpro-how-pc driver only-help


I think you're using the adapter in reverse. The adapter that changes from VGA to DVI but not the other way. You should plug the adapter into the DVI out on the macbook and then plug the VGA end of the cable into the monitor. If the monitor has a DVI input then you should be using a DVI to DVI cable to hook it up.

Once you have the cable plugged in you'll need to enable dual monitors or switch to external monitor on your macbook. Don't worry about the driver's cd, they are not necessary to make the monitor work on your mac (or on a PC for that matter).

There are two great instructions on how to do this, just google for "macbook switch to external monitor"

One here.

Second one here.
