Re: problem with my monitor

There is no reason that a monitor only 6 months old should cause problems like this. Either Acer should fix your monitor or you have a video card problem. Bringing your monitor to a computer tech place may be a good start. They should be able to hook it up and see if it does the same thing on their computer and FOR FREE. If the problem clears up on their computer, your video card or driver is defective.

Why did my computer monitor stop showing an image?

Disconnect it from computer and power. wait 15 minutes and plug only the power back in, press the power on button. The monitor may display a message that there is no signal or something like that. If that happens the problem is either the cable or the computer. If you get no message then look for the menu button and press it to see if any thing appears. If not find the manual on line and read it. Many times monitors get over-driven by computers to the point that they can't display OR they self destruct.


Another way is to just unplug everything computer and monitor for 15 minutes. Plug in monitor first then plug in computer and press the power button, the display should display the booting information if the cable is good and the monitor is good.

Blue stripe across the monitor syncmaster b2230

Your monitor has a 3 year warranty through Samsung. The issues you are having indicate that your video control board in the monitor is beginning to have issues. You need to get an RMA to have it serviced before the warranty runs out.

It might, somes companies won't honour warranty unless you have 3 to 5 dead pixels. Go to and contact customer support to see what can be done.

What does it mean by dead cells?

I assume this is related to your LCD monitor.
I think you mean dead pixels. The LCD monitor has tiny pixel elements, one for each red, blue, green color and each one of these colored pixels are turnes on by a transistor. When a transistor fails then the colored pixel it controls does not light up. This is a dead pixel and it shows up as a tiny black dot.
If the screen displays a blue screen, a dead blue pixel will appear as a tiny black dot in the blue screen.
You normally would not notice a few dead pixels unless they are grouped together.

It's seems you had a stuck pixal... Turn your monitor off and try this tips: Wn't work in every case. It may take a few attempts to make sure you are pressing exactly on the dead pixel.These instructions will fix "stuck" pixels, not "dead" ones, like red, blue or green. An alternative, but similar technique involves gently massaging the stuck pixel with a warm damp soft cloth.Alternative technique to tapping: Using a rounded pencil eraser, push with moderate pressure into screen at stuck pixel.
Good lucks!

Red Dot and OUT OF RANGE problem

You might be able to take back the monitor since you just bought it, but manufacturers generally have a specified number of bad pixels for which they deem the panel to be functioning acceptably and they will only replace it if the number of bad pixels exceeds that limit.

Redhat 9 is rather old and I don't remember if this will work, but just in case get to a prompt and type 'setup' as root. If it is there you will have several choices of what to set up. Choose X configuration. If your monitor is not in the list, select one of the generic LCD monitors that match the native resolution of your monitor.
You could also tweak /etc/X11/xorg.conf to a resolution that will work but I doubt you want to tackle that.

That dot represent lit (stuck) red sub-pixel and if it only one that is not considerable as failure due to dead pixel warranty but you can try to solve this problem with software called screen fix. It possible that during exploitation that red dot dissapear.
