Question about Samsung SyncMaster 214T 21.3" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Window screen problem

My monitor is SyncMaster 226BW, Samsung. If the resolution was set at less than the maximum, the window screen stayed at the center of the monitor screen and takes only a half or 2/3 of the monitor. I tried to use the monitor adjusting buttons to change the size of the window screen, it didn't work. If the Pixel was set at 1680x1050, fonts of other programs are very small and all the websites are presenting on the half of the screen. Please help me with this problem. Thanks.

Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW Monitor "Not

The "native" resolution of the monitor is the "optimal" resolution -- it looks best to use this resolution.

So, right-mouse click anywhere on your Windows desktop "wallpaper".
Click Properties.
Click Settings.
Move the "Screen Resolution" slider to the recommended settings.
Click Apply.
Click OK.

If i try to connect to 1680x1050, my screen goes dark. but when im using 1600x1000 it still desplays

The resolution 1680X1050 is the native resolution for your monitor. This means that the best view for your monitor is for this resolution. Your problem in not at the resolution, it's at the refresh rate. How to fix this? Go to the settings for your screen. At the lower right corner you will locate "for advanced users" button. Click on it and choose the "screen" tab. At the lower part of the window you will locate the "refresh rate". Click on it and change it at the lower setting (about 60 - 70 Hertz). Click on aplly - OK. You will be back to the resolution settings page. Set the resolution at 1680X1050, apply - ok. Go back to "refresh rate" window and change the setting to a higher setting STEP BY STEP. In case of an "out of range" and blaack screen DON'T DO ANYTHING, at 15 seconds you will come back to the previous settings. With this procedure you will get the native resolution for your screen with the higher refresh rate.

I have samsung syncmaster 740nw how can i increase screen resolution to 1024x768?

you cannot set the resolution to 1024x768 but instead try 1280x720 or if you have graphics card try to set the resolution using its custom resolution by setting 1280x768.
It will surely solve your problem.

Hi, I cannot get my syncmaster to show the whole screen of my laptop

What is the current screen-resolution of your laptop, e.g., 1280-by-1024?
What is the maximum resolution of your LCD screen?
If it is "less" than the laptop's resolution,
part of the picture will be "off-screen".
Reduce the screen-resolution of your laptop to match the maximum resolution of the LCD.

I have a samsung syncmaster 915a which resets to max resolution. Can I change their Motherboard equivelint??

Resolution is determined by the display settings, up to the limits of the hardware. In windows, if you right-click on your desktop and select settings, click the "display settings" tab on the resulting window, you can select lower resolutions (icons etc. get bigger, less stuff fits on screen) if you desire. Be sure to click "apply"

Samsung syncmaster 226BW no backlight

Look for any bulging capacitors, instead of a flat top they will look "pregnant".

If you see any of those then replace them with capacitors of the same UF rating and the voltage needs to be either the same or higher.

If you dont see any bulging capacitors or burnt parts, then its got be the LCD at that point thats not staying on and the cost to replace the LCD is as much if not more then to just get another monitor.

I want defalt settings of samsung syncmaster 793s 2004 model monitor

The default resulution is 1024 x 768, you can keep the Screen Refresh list at 75 Mhz

If you have been at "Out of Range" then you need to reboot and press F8 before windows load up, then choose VGA Mode. When windows finished loading you can fix the resolution again as you like. Hope this fix your problem

Best Regard!

Movie on monitor

Hi, Normally I would suggest that you first lower your laptop's screen resolution, refresh rate and color quality and verify that you have enabled the external monitor or dual view in your Display Property Settings as well as the Fn key + F?. However, this kind of problem should not exist with an LCD Widescreen monitor with specs and features as your Samsung 226BW. If trying the reco on the first paragraph and you still have no movie display (but all other laptop display shows), perhaps it is a problem with the Samsung 226BW. To my knowledge, this particular brand/model uses no less than 3 different panel display, some not as good as the others. Verify that you have an original Samsung panel display in your Samsung monitor by looking at the sticker at the back of the screen, it should say Model: 226BW [R] S. If it says A or even a C, then perhaps the display panel is not living to its specs/claimed capacities. You of course can request a replacement from your dealer and cite your problem but insist that it be an "S". Most instances (but not always) an "S" would mean panel screen by Samsung, "A" by AU Optronics and "C" by CMO. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
