Question about Samsung SyncMaster 172B (Silver) 17 inch LCD Monitor
Dear all experts,
I have a really strange problem with my LCD monitor. I'd appreciate if someone help me, cause I'm in a big trouble.
OK the problem is kind of complicated, so I've bought "Samsung SyncMaster 172B 17" for a long time ago (about 4 years). It was working fine until a couple months ago it starts to lost the whole picture at one time with making a strange lines and it look like a galaxy or something. So, I noticed if i leave it on for a couple hours it will be fixed by itself. BUT later the problem became worst than that and could not be fixed by itself at all.
So, please please dear all experts I really NEED your half as soon as possible. And the worst part is that I cant find it nowadays in all markets.
Thanks in advance,
same problem here...
here is a translated version of a webpage discussing the repair for this error...
solder a 50 ohm resistor on pins 5 & 6 of Novatek NT68F63LG chip...
good if you can DIY, best if a qualified technician do it for you..

I would follow the self-test below. If you see the same issue in the test screen then your monitor has lost it's sync and would need a board replaced.
If it dosn't appear during the test, then you might want to test it on another PC.
Self-Test Feature Check
1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer.
3. Turn on the monitor.
If the monitor is functioning properly, you will see a box in the illustration below.
This box appears during normal operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
If your monitor screen remains blank after using the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.

Follow the instruction below to solve your problem:
Restart your computer and enter Safe Mode (press F8 right as the computer starts booting up. Choose Safe Mode in the menu, press Enter twice).
While in Safe Mode, open Control Panel and go to Add/Remove Programs (Programs and Features on Vista/7) and uninstall the display driver software/drivers.
Restart your computer and boot normally. Now you should be able to see everything. Things might look bigger and uglier, that because there's no display driver installed. All you have to do now is reinstall the display driver. Use it's original disc or go to the manufacturer website and download the latest driver.

The hissing sound is coming from the power supply board. It is not dangerous per say but it indicates the power supply is failing and you will begin to have more problems such as wavy picture, slow to display the picture and then finally no picture at all.
