Question about Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20.1" LCD Monitor
The troublesome monitor is 1/2 of dual monitor setup. Randomly the (left) monitor abruptly goes blank. Cycle power w/ front panel button restores monitor function immediately, but only for another random interval (2 - 5 minutes, sometimes longer), then screen blanks again. Both inputs (VGA - digital) & computer video channels yield same results (it's not cables or VGA card). Time interval between blanking seems totally random. Other (right) monitor exhibits NONE of these symptoms with either computer output.
I too have a dual monitor Samsung SyncMaster 204 setup. My monitors started flickering, then a week later had turn on problems like your describe. I found a fix on this fixya website and followed the fairly techie suggestion. It worked. I wrote up a .pdf set of instructions so others might also benefit. Hope this helps. Doug
