Question about Samsung 204T 20" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Samsung Syncmaster 204T flashing

The monitor on my dual-monitor system is set to turn off after 5 minutes (to save energy and lifetime of the monitor). When I turn the sytem back on (mouse movement, etc.), the monitor flashes darkly (that is off, then dimly lit, etc.) at a high rate (10-20 times per second), slowly getting brighter in the on phase of the flash, until it is fully bright. Then it switches off. If I turn it off then back on (with the power switch) it will often stay on, without flashing, but sometimes turns off again, until I repeat that process.

It seems to me that this is some failure, and I am trying to contact Samsung about it.

Hi,
Please check that all the cables are plugged in firmly on the back of the monitor and on the back of the computer.
However....
It sounds like the back light on the screen is faulty. If this is the case it is definitely a return for repair problem. You should be able to find the warrantly procedure for your area on the samsung website.
Cheers
Dave

When I play some games on my syncmaster 215tw, the screen goes black after 5 minutes. I have to reboot everytime to get the screen back on. The blue light flashes but i cant do nothing until i reboot....


that means your VGA is not big enough to run the game.This problem is not from the monitor but your system.I suggest an upgrade in your system to enhance better performance.

I have a samsung syncmaster 204T monitor. Everything was fine until last night when i kept my system on standby for approx 5-6 hrs. Now whenever i start my system there is only a green led on front panel...


I just started having the same problem! The green light flashes, but the monitor is blank. None of the button work (menu, source, etc...) and nothing changes when I disconnect it from the computer. I was suspecting a bad graphics card at first, but now I'm thinking the monitor itself is bad?!

My son crack the LCD glass on his 204T SyncMaster


The glass of the panel is glued or welded to the LCD wafer below, it cannot be replaced separately. Since the panel is the most expensive part of an LCD monitor, its probably the cheapest option to just get a new monitor - spare part ordering and extensive manual work required for the change simply outweighs the remaining value of the monitor.

My screen acts as if it's on energy-saving-mode but doesnt activate...


Check and reset the Screen Saver to the settings you want, even if its set properly. Did this work?

If not, reset the monitor to factory defaults to flush its memory.

If that doesn't work unplug the monitor for a minute and replug.
