I would first check to make sure your video card is seated properly, unless you have an integrated video chip then you might want to insert a video card on the PCI slot to make sure that the problem is not with your motherboard or your PCI slot. If no problem with that, use a flash light at an angle to light up your monitor when your computer is on and plugged into your monitor to see if the screen is on but maybe too dim too see. If that is the case it sounds like the capacitors in your monitor might be causing a problem. Sometimes the capacitors do no look busted or bulged at the top, one might be bad internally without giving an indication by looks.

SOURCE: check signal message when data cable unplugged. blank screen when data cable plugged

This problem is most likely to be caused by a bent or broken pin on the CRT video cable at the VGA connector, OR, this could also be caused by a damaged VGA connector on the back of the laptop. If neither VGA connector is at fault, the problem could be caused a damaged (kinked) CRT data cable, or internal damage to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop, though I suspect the problem is more likely to be external, and you probably won't have to disassemble the laptop to locate the culprit...

SOURCE: Nothing on the screen at startup

If you cant get into the setup menu then I would think the monitor is defective,you did not state if you hooked up the monitor to a computer that has a vga port that works.

SOURCE: Samsung 244T 24" LCD Monitor suddenly lost

Hello,

The problem you are having is a common symptom of a failure in the power supply. Parts called capacitors start failing. When they fail they stop filtering the voltages correctly and the power supply shuts down to prevent additional damage. If you would like more information on capacitor failure please check out this page on our web site explaining what they are and what they do: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/capacitors/ If you can solder then you can do the repair yourself. We have a kit available with all the capacitors that you need to replace. The kit details can be found at: http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=124 The kit contains all of the capacitors that need to be changed on the board to return it to full operation again. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for this unit. You can get details on our repair service at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/service-request-form/

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Syncmaster 913v not optimum mode


I just resolved this problem for my SyncMaster 913N.
It seems to be a known issue, however it can take quite some time for the problem to occur. In my case about 3,5 years, so well out of warranty.

Short term solution: unplug your monitor from power. The switch on the front is not good enough. Pull the plug and leave it for an hour or so (all night if you can). Good chance the monitor will work next time you power it up.
The problem will is likely to come back..

Permant fix requires some basic soldering as per this video:



I just managed it and it has been ages since I soldered a resistor so you may very well be able to do it. I spent $25 on tool and part and saved me from buying a new monitor.

When i start up my computer, the screen is all black even tho the monitor is powered. Then when i press menu, it says test good, and goes back to black screen?:s


There are two kinds of inputs your monitor can take. I believe you are currently using the VGA input. Try DVI and see if it resolves the problem.

Sai.

Just bought new tower pc,when connecting to monitor getting error box which says"not optimum mode,reccomended mode 1280 x 1024 60hz ? any thoughts?


hi,

I think the operating system your using has less color drives or on board VGA has less color dives which would work with the monitor .
An upgrade of your operating system would fix it .or buy a VGA card and this will come wit its color drive installation CD ie

Good luck

Samsung SyncMaster 913N screen not working


There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

Please post back what you find.

Samsung SyncMaster 215tw screen goes black after about 1 sec.


I have the same problem its defenitly a problem with the lcd monitor not with the graphics card nor the pc. I hooked up the digital and afterwards the vga connection both had the same result. 1 s perfect screen all visible but than black. pushing the on/off or standby button again shortly 1s the display works than it blanks. Did the same test while connected to a dvd player via the composite video... same problem . Since the previous posts are that old and without a solution I guess there is no hope in getting it fixed.

HOW DO I HOOK MY SAMSUNG SYNCHMASTER TO MY COMPUTER? I HAVE THE DVI CABLE CONNECTED TO BOTH AND IT KEEPS SAYING CHECK SIGNAL?


Hi,

Prior to attaching the SynchMaster and if there is another monitor, pls try lowering the Screen Resolution of your Display Properties. It may also be necessary to lower down the Screen Refresh Rates. In some video card, you may have to activate Twin/Extended view or enable the use of a second monitor assuming that your regular monitor is connected to the standard 15pin VGA and that the Samsung would be the 2nd monitor using the DVI.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
