Question about Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20.1" LCD Monitor
I have two Samsung 204b Monitors that I have set up as dual monitors. They have worked correctly for over 6 months, just yesterday one of the monitors began to lose brightness and begin to flicker, I have checked all the cables and re-started my computer. Now today the monitor will not turn on. The power button is flashing. It seems that my mouse can get lost in the other monitor if i drag it in that direction. I have tried removing and attaching in the display panel. Is my monitor just broken or is there something I can do ?
It does sound as if its ?broken? but some quick tests will help figure out whats going on. When the other monitor dies switch where it plugs into the PC with the other monitor. If the problem follows the monitor then the PC end is OK and we shift our focus to the monitor. Some monitors have video cables that will disconnect from the monitor. If that is the case with your?s then try swapping cables, again does the problem follow the cable or stay with the monitor? If it follows the cable then just replace it, if not then the problem is definitely in the monitor as you suspected. If you monitor is less than a year old (or whatever your warranty is) contact Samsun tech support for a warranty replacement. When you call make sure you outline the process you went through, it will make the process quicker. If its older then what you do next depends on you, if you have the skills and some basic equipment you can try troubleshooting. I usually recommend that the typical user either take their monitor to the local authorized repair shop for this sort of thing. Most users simply do not have the experience or tools to take on the job.
