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