Question about Samsung 793S 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Control locked Hi,in my Samsung monitor, i get a prompt window displaying "Control Locked" with a 'Unlock' button, which is getting clicked automatically and closes the prompt. within a fraction of second, the prompt pops out again. This process continues. I cannot drag that prompt with mouse pointer too. At times, the monitor properties menu opens(without pressing the menu button), and the screen resolution changes automatically. If i press the menu button on the monitor, the prompt disappears(till i press the button). please render your help at the earliest possible. Thanks in advance, yours,Adav.

Try pressing the buttons (with your monitor turned off) if they have allowances for switching (if it is a push button then each should be pressed slightly and you should feel that it switches through!) if you pressed it and felt hard ( like something was stuck) then the buttons might have misalligned from the switches on the board. do not open your monitor unless you have electronic servicing experience. other causes might be the monitor's sync. processing IC. it could be defective.

hi Dale,
I think the press to on button in your monitor has struck and its locked the switch permenently.That is why You can not telease it and get a click sound as the menu is always enabled.
Try releasing the button with a pin or a sharp tool without any damage.
