Question about Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20.1" LCD Monitor
Hello, I am writing about a problem with a Samsung LCD TV "Model No. LT-P1745
Model Code: LTP1745X/XAA",
I use it as my monitor with my desktop, Desktop info below. "My Monitor JUST BLACKED OUT" or SOMETHING BURNED OUT.
I was able to hear like a crackle or sizzle, before it went out, and I was barely able to smell something burnt, like rubber or something else burnt.
The "Cable" that connects the monitor to the desktop, the cable is missing one pin on each end, in the exact same place. Unless that is how the cable is supposed to be, I don't know?
The Pin or area where there is no pin, is the middle row of pins, up-right position, and number 4 is missing.
The cable has two turning screws
that screw the cable head into the monitor or desktop.
The cable is made by Belkin, with 14-pins in a 15 pin head. Both sides or ends of to the cable are missing the same pin, in the same area. The desktop setup was not new when I got it, the monitor/TV came with it.
If anybody can help me out with info on LCD TV/Monitor Repair, or any information would be helpful and appreciated.
In the past, I had a problem with the cable the plugged into the power outlet (surge-protector). It had the same smell and sound in the past and I would just wiggle the wire or take it out and replace it, until it was in the right spot. It was kind of like how Headphones go out. I never got a new wire and I know I should of. I'll probably end up at Radio Shack or something if there is a Save, for the monitor. I'm not sure if it's a cable or if that is possible. I just hope I can get some help on information. Thanks
I have a "emachines" desktop,
Intel Celeron D Processor 330 or &
Intel Celeron CPU 2.66GHz,
2.67GHz 504 MB of RAM or &
If more information is needed, Please let me know?
It sounds to me like the monitor/TV needs to either be replaced or sent in for repair but there are a few things we can test.
The first thing would be to set the TV to connect a cable line to the TV and see if you can get any type of picture on it at all. (Don't forget to change the input mode)
Then I would try connecting a different monitor to the computer just to make sure it didn't blow out the video card.
If both options work then it is the input on the TV and it needs to be repaired.
If only the TV works then it was the video card on the computer.
If the second monitor works and the TV doesn't then the TV either needs to be replaced or repaired.
Oh and by the way it is normal for the pin to be missing on those cables, that is how they are made.
