Question about Samsung 710V 17" LCD Monitor

Pixel size error

Can someone please help me? My monitor is diplaying a message that says "Not optimum resolution. Try 1024 x 768". That is what it is on. If I connect a different monitor to it and reboot it works fine. Then I connect the Samsung up again and it will work for a couple of days and then randomly turn off again. I thought it could have been the graphics card because it was very old so I replaced it and it is still happening. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks

Re: Pixel size error

Hi Philter, when you change the resolution to their recommended pixel (1024x768), is it solve your problem? If not, this properly is the lcd mainboard problem. Because i have try some of the samsung lcd monitor have this type of problem. If you're a component level repairman, then you can try to change the EPROM IC and reprogrma their data inside that ic. This will solve problem. Any lcd repair information, please visit this site . You also can get some lcd monitore service manual.

Re: Pixel size error

Ensure you are at Maximum resoloution in Advanced Settings, Also set the "Colors" to 32Bit if available,, maybe thats wat it means 1024 x 768 x 32bit ? But a lot of monitors your size should do is 1280 x 1024 x 32bit .. can you set that up? ... Make sure you go to the Video Card Manufactureres site and download latest driver for your exact Card and system

My computer monitor shows a message "out of range". I can't get rid of the message or show anything from my computer.

The resolution your computer is sending is greater than the maximum support resolution of your monitor that isn't working or is a resolution not supported. Connect one of the monitors that works and turn down the resolution to something small (800x600 or 1024,768) and then switch to the original monitor back, you should see a picture and can adjust the resolution to something larger that the monitor supports.

When i turn on my computer i get the message"NOT OPTIMUM MODE, RECOMMENDED MODE 1280x1024 60Hz" What is the meaning if this?

This is just your computer trying to give you the best resolution your monitor can handle. With the extent of modern technology being what it is, most devices will communicate information between themselves without a human being needed for most of it. This case is a perfect example. Many new monitors will "tell" the computer what their maximum resolution and refresh rate are, and the computer will automatically set your video card to use those settings. Resolution is the "1280x1024" part of the message, which refers to the number of pixels and size of area to be used on the monitor. Refresh rate is the "60Hz" part of the message, and isn't really important unless you see a flicker on your monitor or are getting into the advanced usage of a large, powerful monitor system.

The message you received was because of a miscommunication between the monitor and the computer. The monitor had no factory set value for its "Optimum Mode", so your computer was forced to ask you for input. The recommended mode should work just fine for you, so feel free to ignore that message unless it starts causing you problems, like an odd flicker in your screen or the screen not displaying your desktop properly.

Error message

Kathryn, In the lower left, under the screen there is a row of buttons... One is labled "AUTO" have you tried pressing auto and if so does anything happen?? If not try pressing "MENU" first and then "AUTO"... What we are attempting to do is to get the monitor to accept the current settings so we can get the screen up and then deal with changing the resolution... In a Windows operating system the resolution is changed by going to "START" - "SETTINGS" - "CONTROL PANEL" - "DISPLAY" and in that window click on the "SETTINGS" tab and reset your resolution. This one might take some better communication that emails - because it would be easier to know in real-time how the monitor is reacting as you input various things... You can give me a call at 360-642-4993 or we can set-up a live chat. I'm assuming since you were able to place this post you have a second computer to work from? Bill

Regarding L1515S 15" LCD Monitor Resolution

Hello mallik, The LCD monitor is actually a active matrix of small transistors (3 for each pixel). They have one native resolution, a FIXED one for example you monitor has 1024 x 768 pixels. This results in 786432 pixels displayed on the screen. Because each pixel is controlled by 3 transistors there will be 2359296 transistors controlling your entire screen. This is a fix number. You can't raise the resolution to 1280 x 1024 because this will require as you can see now... a lot more transistors on the same surface. All you can do is to lower the resolution, in this case 4 pixels (12 transistors) form a larger pixel acording to that lower resolution. The image can look blurry in these situations. THe bottom ideea is that a LCD pannel (more corectly said, TFT (thin transistor film) pannel, has one optimum resolution, it's native one. The higher the better, when choosing one to buy, but you can't raise the resolution over that. You can just lower it. It works different then the normal conventional CRT monitors. Sorry for my bad english as I live in a non english-speaking country. Also if you have anymore questions please post a comment.
