Re: On-Screen Menu

No solution yet. My 17 inch flat screen monitor clearly says
Samsung Model 731 on the label on the back and yet this model is not recognized by this site. I need help getting rid of this pesky box that keeps popping up in the middle. Other models obviously have experienced the same.

Lock on monitor adjustments don't know how to turn off the lock so we can adjust brightness and color

Follow these instructions :
  1. Turn on your Samsung monitor (if it isn't already.)

  2. Press the "AUTO" button on your Samsung monitor. This will run the automatic configuration utility. This will look at your current computer settings and adjust your monitor to best match those. This will take a few seconds. If this has calibrated the monitor to meet your needs, you are finished with the process. If it hasn't, continue to Step 3.
  3. Press the "Menu" button on your Samsung computer monitor.
  4. Use the arrows and the "Enter" button on the monitor to highlight and select various settings categories.
  5. Use the "Brightness" menu on your Samsung monitor to adjust how bright or dark you want the image.
  6. Use the "Colors" menu to adjust how prominent certain colors are displayed on your Samsung monitor.
  7. Use the "Contrast" menu to adjust the level of black on your Samsung monitor.
  8. Select "Save and Exit" to save your changes and exit the Samsung monitor's on Screen menu.

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 931BF. I love the screen, but for quite awhile, the screen has been having a hard time coming on and staying on. I'll have to cycle the power multiple times to get the screen...

Remove its stand
Unscrew all the screws in the back.
It doesnt just lift off I guess you could say, there are many clamps around the edge that need to be "popped" by sliding anything thin enough to get between the front and back of the case to pop them.

I popped mine open the other night. The clamps appear to be hard to break, at least in my circumstance. None of them broke with a fair amount of pressure from pulling being applied.

Also, mine had your exact same issue until one day it no longer turned on completely. It just flashed the screen once and showed a flashing power light around the button. Replacing 3 capacitors that were just barely bulging on the top fixed the issue.

My auto synch screen flashes on and off periodically and the birghtness menu comes on the screen for no reason and wont go away. How do I fix this?

More likely to have power supply problem when it does strange things.
Very common problem with all LCD monitors. Look for caps with leaking/bulging tops.
See failed SAMSUNG and other brands here to get some idea what to look for inside if you are going to DIY repair.

Stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing DELLe152fp

That is the OSD (On Screen Display) system built-in to your computer monitor. Check that when you hit the ON/OFF button on your monitor, that you do *NOT* hit the 'OSD ON/OFF' button.

Most of the time, the OSD will disappear after 10 seconds of "non-use".
