Question about Samsung SyncMaster 172N 17" LCD Monitor
When the monitor is turned on, the display is mainly a bright white color with horizontonal lines across it, also a 1/2 inch black horizontal line seems to be floating down the monitor, like a waterfall and starts back at the top. I need to know is this a power supply issue(capacitor replacement) or is it some lighting issue. If it is the lighting issue, anyone know how to fix it and walk me through step by step. Thanks
I have the same problem with my monitor and it did not happen until windows update started installing a driver---before that my monitor was working fine. (It was on automatic update) I think it is because the new driver sets the monitor at 100hertz and the syncmaster works best at 60 hertz ( I think).
Since I am unable to see anything on the monitor I do not know how to reset this though. I do think if I could get it working at a lower refresh rate then it would work again---damn automatic updates anyway.
I took my puter back to an earlier date before it had upgraded but my monitor still has the line thing going on. Hope someone has some suggestions for this.

Tips for a great answer:
You can adjust the
brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and
to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.
To improve the results
when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use
Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these
color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display
color in Windows,
see Calibrate your display.
The way you adjust
brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.
Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast
controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following
On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some
displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and
contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by
pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.
