Question about Samsung SyncMaster 971P LCD Monitor

2 Answers

It's simply gone blank... or into a coma perhaps.

I've had my screen for about 4 months with no problems, but today it just went blank, flipped between the digital/analog boot up in left hand corner, went to sleep and switched itself off. Now I can't turn it on again, all it does is the above for about 5 secs and turns itself off again. Help! Don't want to have to go through warranty annoyingness... thanks

Re: It's simply gone blank... or into a coma perhaps.

My 917P has had similar problems recently. Sometimes cycling the power switch 5x (pausing between each try) brings it back to life. As screen sometimes flickers, when the problem occurs, thought it might be the backlight. However mine is clearly due to the power supply not supplying proper power to reliably get the backlight going. As it is an external power supply, Samsung may well cover a replacement. Some Samsung LCDs, such as 971P, have a 3yr warranty.

try to reinstall your browser, or the email app. If that does not help, perhaps you are not using the correct password?
Perhaps someone hacked you address?
Perhaps something went wrong while setting up the address?
On the login screen press forgot password, and look if you get a mail in the mailbox you gave the provider as backup address in case you forgot the password. If nothing happens, the address is (no longer) yours.

This is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen went blank, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

feel free 4 further assistance .rate the particular experts solution as fixya that helps u understand n solve ur problem

The need to reboot your computer to get your monitor working places the blame totally in the computer. You have a virus, or the computer is overheating and shutting down for thermal reasons.
