Question about Samsung 226BW Monitor

Problem with Samsung SyncMaster 226BW

When the picture is dark, the screen slowly fades a bit out in contrast and the screen stars buzzing very low buzzing, but I'm able to hear it. Sounds like a coil that is not 100% fastened. When the image lights up again, the summing dissapears and the contrast is back to normal. I suspect the powersupply is starting to kick of, nd I would like to hear if anyone else has had this problem. (I have tried another display... No problem)

Click the top button on the side of the monitor to open the monitor's settings. In the "Picture" Settings, scroll down to "MagicBright" and open those settings. Chances are you have it set to "Dynamic Contrast". Switch that up to any of the other settings and then it won't try to adjust the gamma based on what is on the screen.

Hope this helps, I struggled with the same problem for quite a while until I found this setting.

I have a samsung moniter itts about 2 years old lately the picture keeps going grey like a lack of contrast,I have checked monitor leads i dont lose picture. I am a novice coulde it be my pcs graphics card...


If you mean by lack of contrast, that the screen illumination is low, then you probably have a faulty backlight, i.e. one or more of the cold cathode flourescent tubes is not working. Although this may be repairable, it may be more economical to buy a new monitor. Get a quote from a TV repair shop.

My tv is about 2 years old. It just started burning old images into the screen and they slowly fade away but its very annoying.


Removing burn-in takes time. The best practice is to avoid creating the images.

Whatever the image is coming from has been left on screen for an extended period of time. The TV should be turned off or the source turned off when not watching.

You may find some relief by lowering your contrast (which I am suspecting is still at or near 100% as they come from the store). Bring contrast down to, say 60. Use brightness or backlight to brighten the screen if you think it is too dark with the contrast lowered. (Best picture quality is near 50, the center of the scale.)

Check the contrast (darkness/lightness) on your Samsung LCD. There's a menu button on the monitor, press that and select contrast setting from the Menu.

Brightness automatically going low when the brightness is at 100


hello, please make sure the magicbrite option is not set to "dynamic contrast" as this will change the contrast levels by itself, change the settings by pressing the down arrow touch key on the monitor, change it to any other setting, game mode is blinding on my one (when the monitor works, but thats another story!!!) good luck with samsung customer care centre 0870SAMSUNG (uk)

Syncmaster 226bw goes black


If you can still faintly see data on your screen, it will be a faulty backlight in the panel most likely.

LCD panels have fluorescent tubes in them that provide the light needed to see the data. If one of these goes faulty, the circuit that drives it will turn off ALL the backlights, giving you a black screen.
Note: a faulty circuit that drives the backlights will often give the same apparent fault.
You will need to take the monitor in for repair.

Dark screen/picture.


This 30" flat screen TV set may have a problem in the high voltage circuit of the TV set. You may be able to adjust this by taking off the back of the TV set. Look for the block where the large red wire runs up to the top of the picture tube. On this block will be two controls. one will say screen and one will say focus. Try and slowly turn the control that says screen or S on it clockwise and see if you can make the picture brighter. Turn up the control till you just start to see faint lines in the picture, then back the control down till the lines go away. If the picture does not come up when you turn this up, and all you get is a blank screen, you will need to have this set repaired by a qualified repair person. Good Luck
