Question about Samsung 906BW LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Waves I just bought this monitor and it is brand new out of the box. I am using this monitor with a mac mini. I constantly have "waves" streaming from the bottom to the top of of the screen. I have tried adjusting settings and nothing works. I know that sometimes a tv can causes this so I turned off all electrical devices and it still continues. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the help. I unplugged the cables and plugged them back in and it solved the problem. I thought I had them tight the first time but I guess not. Thanks again for your help.

Hi hoovs, Waves streaming normally comes from the 60 cycles hum of the AC mains. Sometimes this is caused by poor or loose grounding in the video cable or at times a weak or defective capacitor in the power supply of the monitor or at times low voltage supply to the monitor. If after checking your cables (both power and video) are not loose and are snugly fitted to their connection points and you still get the waves, then you are probably better off returning the unit for replacement. Another thing you can check is if the monitor is getting enough power. If the monitor's power supply is rated 100~240 VAC, then it should work out ok. If it's got a 240 rating and you are using it in 110, then the monitor is not getting enough juice which may cause the waves. On rare occasion, waves may be eliminated by simply plugging in the AC plug of your monitor the other way around. Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

I ran into the same problem with this moniter. I am running it as a secondary moniter off of my laptop and I tightened the connections and the waves went away a little but were still noticable. So I went back to the store I bought it from and exchanged it for another and got back to my house and it still had the same problem. I then decided to plug it into a different outlet from my laptop and speakers and it works perfectly, no waves or any problems at all.

My Monitor has impulse waves.


It may be the DC filter caps in the power supply going bad, that will be the first place to look. See failed ACER and other monitors here:

may be a problem with your motherboard connector. Try connecting the monitor using another comp and check for the waves. But before this, try to reinstall your display driver.

On my monitor it is showing some waves... picture is not clear.. showing some lines(less darken)


If it is a flat screen monitor: you should try different monitor resolutions and refresh rates. Specifically, you should set your resolution and refresh rate to the specifications set by Sony. You can also use the "detect displays" button in the "display" system preferences.
If it is a CRT: Try the above, but also try "degaussing" your monitor. This is a command on the monitor itself, and it's location depends on the brand / model. turn on the On Screen Display menu and look around for it.

Nebulizers problem


There are two main types of nebulizers: jet and ultrasonic devices. Jet nebulizers form droplets by using a compressor to deliver a pressurized jet stream of air down a narrow tube and through an opening. This creates a vacuum (through the Venturi effect), thus drawing liquid from a reservoir. The resultant small droplets of liquid are propelled out of the machine by the continued jet stream. Ultrasonic nebulizers produce aerosolized droplets using high-frequency sound waves generated by a special crystal. Liquid drug is usually delivered to the crystal, where it forms a thin layer. Electricity excites the crystals, causing them to vibrate at extremely high frequency. This vibration forces the thin liquid layer through an adjacent mesh, creating a fine mist. Droplet size varies with the frequency of the sound waves created by the vibrating crystals.

Samsung monitor randomly flashes black


> brand-new out-of-the-box

Presumably, it has a "warranty".

So, take it back to where you bought it, and demonstrate the problem to them, and make them repair/replace it, under warranty.

"Waves" generating from the right of the screen.


It's power distortion. If you move the monitor away from the pc, the waves will stop. It's magnetic distortion causing this interference. Your monitor is fine.

Faulty screen


You might need to replace the surface mount capacitors. measure the ESR on them, the higher it is, the more likely you are to get ripples. If this doesn't say much to you, take it to a lab. Use the warranty if you have it offcourse. Good luck
