Question about Samsung SyncMaster 910MP 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

TV lost it's color. It is only black and white.

Over a couple of weeks the TV in the monitor began to separate colors into stripes. It would go from stripes to good color - back n forth. Now the TV has no color - only black and white transmisson. The monitor itself has good color. The cables are tight. The settings are normal. The monitor has always been slow to paint pictures, such as the shortcut icons, however the problem seems limited to the TV. The TV picture is not as sharp as it used to be but it is not fuzzy. The monitor is 3-4 years old.

Re: TV lost it's color. It is only black and white.

Either you have a problem with your aerial or a hardware problem with the internal TV tuner, make sure any other TV's in the house don't have the same problem. You can try a chip-set reset, unplug power and hold down the on button for 30 seconds (time it to be sure). The manual for this TV is not readily available so I can't tell you if there is a reset option in the On Screen Display, you'll have to press menu and have a look through, but if there is use it and see if it helps. Failing that it's sometimes possible to fix this kind of issue by unplugging power, taking the casing off the TV with a screwdriver and re-seating any internal cables you can find, but as I stated info on this TV is not readily available so can't tell you for sure. If non of this helps it will likely cost you more to get it repaired than to replace it. Hope this helps but message back if you need any more info.

It may sound strange but be absolutely sure the cable is plugged into the monitor. Adapter on the computer. The serial adapter on the back looks just like video. Video actually has a faintly noticeable monitor icon rigtht next to it. Plugging into a serial can eventually blow out your monitor. Also, a.badcable can do the same thing. And if you have messed up the monitor's settings you will see the same

I'd say about the blinking to a black screen would be your cable provider. As for the stripes that means that your board panels can be going bad, you can try updating the firmware of the TV to help but if that doesn't work you're getting very close to full failure on the TV.

Right half of screen is Black with a White vertical stripe

Yeah, I have this exact same problem, except my mom slammed my laptop shut in frustration around half an hour ago, so that's why it's like this. The right half of my screen is black with two colorful stripes (mostly white), but the left half is visible. I've researched a bit and found out that this is because the LCD in your monitor has burnt out, and since you don't have a monitor to attach, the only thing you can do is to go to where you bought the laptop and either get it fixed for free or return it for a brand new one (if your warranty still stands). If not, you might as well get a new laptop. I think my warranty has expired, so I'll get a new laptop, hopefully.

Hope this helps!
