Question about Samsung SyncMaster 712N 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Samsung SyncMaster 213T - DIM DISPLAY

I've had a SyncMaster 213T for about 4 years. It worked beautifully until today. Now the top half of the display is dim! Really after only 4 years? At first I thought I could degauss, but since it's a flat panel, I'm thinking that it doesn't need to be degaussed. Any suggestions (besides throw it out and get a new monitor)?

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.

Height adjustment on monitor stand is stuck. This stand is used on the Samsung SyncMaster 213T and the Dell 2001FP monitor.


I'd call or email samsung. They actually want to know about product problems so the next edition is an improvement. Their Owner's manual should have contact info, or the install cd or google. Tomshardware.com
always seems to be very helpful and may have a "fix".

Check signal cables means there's no signal on input. If your PC still shows up on a different monitor then it's a time to replace a mainboard in your monitor.

Sporadic connection


Try it on another PC but more likely to be in the monitor itself, just like other failed SAMSUNG, bad caps (bulging tops/leaking). Please look through my albums so you know what to look for.

Connect to a set top box with HDMI?


Yes. You will need a HDMI to DVI-D converter or cable to connect them. Be aware that you won't have any sound though as the monitor (unlike flat panel TVs) hasn't got any built-in speakers.

this is not a monitor issue it is a networking issue you can operate on the same workgroup, by doing this you wil be able to start one computer them when it is booted up move the monitor to the new computer then start it when you are done you should be able to see in your network places then you may simply move files from the old computer to the new one.
important both computers must be connectedf to a network , router or hub so they can see eachother. other than that no special equipment needed
