Samsung 172n monitor

I just got a used samsung 172n cheap and for the most part it works fine. I do notice that there is some 'ghosting' of the vertical lines. what I mean is that I see a few echos or ripples of the image which decrease in intensity to nothing and appear to be equally spaced. any ideas? it shows up using two different Dell sx270s, (which I don't see on my CRT monitor) I have a dvi to vga converter on the computer and a 6 foot vga cable. Thanks in advance. Ned

Where do the speakers plug in

Welcome to Fixya!
With the model of the monitor that you have, it should come with a multimedia stand.
if it does not, contact the place where you bought it.
you could see the manual on this link:
once you have downloaded it, refer to page 20.
Hope this would be help!

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 172n monitor and the screen stays black when I turn the power on. The power light starts flashing about 3 seconds after I turn it on. All the power cords are plugged in, the...

When the monitor starts up you should be able to see the Samsung screen logo, if not it does point to the monitor. But lets be sure! hook a spare monitor to the computer, if it is okay! the Samsung Monitor is the problem and is not cost effective to repair, cheaper to replace. Now if both screens show the same problem, this indicates the Video Graphics Card in the computer is the culprit.

First place to look will be the power supply section, look for bad caps with bulging top/bottomseal, blown fuse, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors due to bad caps:

Dead samsung 172n power light flickers

Have you checked the power output from the power board? Is it constant and steady? Try reflowing all the joints if you haven't already. Especially transformer and coil joints. Maybe a bad logic board? Do you have spares to try? Does it do this with everything disconnected from the pwr board (switch, logic, inverter)?

Samsung 172N 17" LCD monitor blacks out seconds at a time with increasing frequency and eventually displays scrambled graphics until system restart.

The problem I have is that when we connect the screen it wiorks fine then blacks out after 5-40min
It then flickers on and off iregularly and every now and then shows distortion and eventually just blacks out

I have two 172N monitors and both now show the same symptoms

We have used different VGA cables and different computers in different locations all with the same result

There is no external influence that we know
