Question about Samsung Computers & Internet
I press the power button the screen turns off then the LCD (touch buttons) blink for about 5 - 10 seconds then monitor turns itself back on...sometimes the screen blinks while the red lights are blinking and then it displays analog/digital top left corner and then after switching between the 2 it settles on analog and shows my desktop. The only way I have been able to get the monitor to shut off completely is by unplugging from outlet. I have tried various methods of troubleshooting. holding finger over menu button for 5 seconds to lock the functions doesn't change anything. unplugging from power, and PC, then turning it on without plugging into PC, doesn't change anything. other than the monitor not being able to turn off by use of the touch button it works fine, occasionally it will shut off for no reason but it just does the same thing blinks on and off then comes back on fully.
If it doesn't turn off by holding the power button down for 10 seconds, then it cannot be turned off by the power button alone, like most modern lcd monitors. Most modern monitors goes into standby mode. To completely cut power, you must unplug the power cable.
I've enclosed a link to the install manual for reference.
