Question about Samsung SyncMaster 710N 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Samsung SyncMaster 710N 17" LCD Monitor - Grey screen

When the monitor is turned on, grey lines appear on the screen and obscure the very faint screen image behind it. The grey lines vary in shade and are both horizontal and vertical, varying in width from 5" to 1". Within a minut of the monitor turning on the screen image slowly fades to black. I first noticed this problem when I returned to my desk at home after being away for 1-2 hours. The monitor is typically on except when I turn it off at night. The menu buttons at the base of the monitor no longer function, or if they do, the problem with the display prevents viewing. Neither the power cable or video cable have been changed or jostled. Does this problem sound familiar, and do you know any solutions. My fear is the monitor is toasted or in need of an expensive repair. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Does this unit have an external power supply (wall wart)? If so, substitute a known good one of similar specs. If the original is 12 Volts/1.2 Amps, find a 12-15 Volt/1.2 or greater Amp. DO NOT go over the voltage more than about 15-20%. DO NOT go under the current rating less than 90% for just long enough to see if it works. Be sure the connector fits PERFECTLY!!! Some will appear to fit but will be loose. Do not under any conditions replace a DC supply with an AC one or vice-versa.

HP Pavilion F1903 flat screen monitor dimmer with grey lines


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I have also experienced the same problem on two occasions, but my Sony TV KDLV3000 has actually been backwards and forwards on three occasions to be repaired. I have had a new control unit and will be having a second screen replacement shortlymad.gif. I have contacted my local Sony Centre and they have stated that they will only replace the TV if there are THREE IDENTICAL faultsfacepalm.gif.

COME ON SONY CENTRE GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER AND TAKE A NOTE FROM JOHN LEWIS THERE CUSTOMER CARE IS SECOND TO NONE.

Not sure I'll buy a Sony again after this experience having been a loyal Sony customer for a number of years, will probably look at a Samsung or LG next time.

Scrolling colored lines on the monitor, overlaying the screen.


You either have extremely screwy drivers, a bad cable or your monitor/panel is shot. Replace any of the above to resolve the issue.

Inspiron 1150 lines on screeN problem.


Connect an external monitor to the laptop and see if it also has the vertical lines. If the external monitor looks fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is bad. If the monitor has the vertical lines displayed on it, then your graphics card or motherboard is bad.

I have a packard bell EASYNOTE MZ36 the screen has gone blank, not even a faint image on the screen. but works fine on a external monitor?


First try and press and hold the FN key and then press the F4 key. The screen will disappear from the external monitor and should appear on Laptop. Try a few times and see what happens. This is a common problem and usually can either be a keying error or the back light operation of LCD screen needs replacement. Cost can vary from $70 - $150 AU. Go to ebay and find if there is a replacement for you. See how you go and let me know!
