The magicbright screen appears in the left lower corner of the monitor, the checkmarks cycle rapidly through the 4 settings, and the brightness changes rapidly. This started a few weeks ago and is intermittent. What do I do?

The magic bright screen should show up once the magic bright button is pressed on the control panel. The magic bright button (is a sensor) is very sensitive. Make sure that there are no objects hitting any buttons on the control panel.

The control panel uses a sensor behind the smooth plastic bezel to register when your finger touches a 'button'. Clean the buttons or the sensors using a soft brush.

Try to power cycle the SyncMaster. Disconnect it from the outlet and from the computer. Leave it disconnected for about 30 minutes then turn it back on.

If you get the same problem, then there's a problem with the sensor and needs to be serviced. If the SyncMaster is still under the warranty period, contact the manufacturer for repair.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

Hi

This issue happens when the inverter in the monitor is broken; it occurs mostly due to filter caps gone bad (capacitors with a bulging on top). It can be that one of the backlights in the monitor is broken. This would result in parts/half the screen being much dimmer than the others/half. LCD Monitors wear in light intensity over time, but when it happened suddenly and is very noticeable, it's probably the inverter that has gone bad. If you have warranty then you can use that and get this fixed. If not, then a complete inverter replacement can be quite expensive and it’s good to buy a new monitor. But if it's due to faulty caps, it's an easy and quick fix for any electro technician, replacement caps are just a couple of bucks. You can contact a authorized local repair shop as it might be a cheap fix.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

How to use buttons on front of Monitor for vertical Horizontal settings


Oldie, The first thing to do is set the monitor resolution, color depth and monitor refresh rate to what you want then adjust the monitor accordingly. Adjust resolution, color depth and refresh rate for Windows 2000/XP: -Right click any clear spot on your desktop and select properties from the menu that appears. -From the Display Properties box that appears click on the Settings tab. -In the screen resolution section (lower left corner) experiment with the resolutions and see what you like. -The color quality box should be set to the highest (most colors) color setting listed. -Click on the advanced button in the lower right corner. -In the next window click on the monitor tab. -Typically you would want to set it at 70 Hertz or better. The higher the setting the less flicker you will notice, however, there is always a trade off. I would start with 70 Hertz and gradually move up; at some point your monitor will reach a setting it can?t support. If the screen blanks out Windows will reset back to the previous settings as long as you don?t hit any keys. -click the OK button twice. More to follow?.
