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?

Re: Waves

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.

Re: Waves

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 View Sonic VX2250-wm-LED monitor has suddenly gone pink. I work on a Mac Mini and the monitor has always looked beautiful. I just recently bought this brand new monitor within the last 4 months. ...

I would replace the cable that connects the monitor to the computer. If that doesn't fix the problem then return the product, it should still be under warranty.
Good Luck!

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:

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.

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
