    I had exactly the same problem with my Samsung SyncMaster 940BW. I had read somewhere that poor earthing might be one of the causes of monitor problems and just switched the socket into which I was plugging my monitor. Immediately the problem went away and my screen is back to bein g crisp and clear as it always was!

Monitor this old will more likely to have bad DC filter caps by now, but you also may have failing LCD panel also. I would inspect the caps and voltages in the power supply section first.

Screen cuts off image


To see the button on the right hand side of this monitor you will need to shine a really bright light on it, but the buttons from top to bottom are: 1, up-arrrow, down-arrow, and 2.

  1. On the side of the monitor press the 1 button to activate the menu.
  2. A configuration menu for the monitor will appear; from that menu highlight the "Input Select" menu item using the up and down buttons on the monitor; when you have the item high-lighted, press the 2 key.
  3. A new menu will appear, and then you can select the menu item called HDMI on the left and PC waaay over on the right. Select this menu item with the up and down arrows and when it is selected,
  4. And press 2 like you did in the previous step.
Apparently there's some sort of a strange difference between using this monitor as a "video monitor" and using it with a computer.

Have a gray transparent band on right side of screen


do you ever run dual displays using a monitor?if so,is the gray band on that screen too?if you grab the screen at the top and flex it left or right does the image change,if it does,check your display connection to the graphics card on the motherboard,and inspect the ribbon for signs of damage,if the same image is on a monitor in dual display,it may be a software problem uninstall your display adapter and all monitors in device manager,,and any software related to it ,restart and when it automatically finds new hardware,cancel it,go to the ibm support site get the latest bios update flash it exactly as the instructions state,,download fresh graphics driver and reinstall,hope this helps aloha from maui todd0708

Dark band on left side, Samsung HL-R5668W


the reflecting mirror is likely loose and falling down inside the light reflecting tube. you should have seen the band getting darker and larger,
the small mirror is in front of the lamp and bends the light,
remove the lamp and look down the tube (light path)
