Question about Samsung SyncMaster 940MW 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen colors washed out

We are having trouble with our screen washing out colors--it's constant and happened all at once. Greys and light colors are literally impossible to see. We have to tilt the screen at an obnoxious angle but still can't see lighter colors. My husband thinks our toddler pushed some buttons, but we've adjusted the bightness and contrast to no avail. Any help?? Thanks!

Blurry, purple bar across middle of plasma tv screen

Plasma screens are extremely susceptible to getting broken from any impacts to the face of the screen. What you are describing sound very much like distorted or dead pixels. It may not be a fixable issue, you may have to replace the entire unit or live with the purple bar. The reason you don't notice it as much when the screen is dark is because purple is on the darker end of the spectrum, and will be most visible in contrast to lighter ad brighter colors.

Splotches on mostly light colored cotton clothes. Happens once in awhile. Don't know if washer or dryer. Any ideas out there?

Try pouring hot water on the item it could be something that is reacting to heat or maybe it's oil based and the water cannot penetrate the fabric in those areas

Akai 52" rear projection...colors are off and screen is washed yellow

Sounds like the blue gun has died. I would say that you should call Salvation Army and have them collect it for you and buy a new LED flat screen TV to replace it.

When pc left on after 15 minutes the screen keeps changing colours from reds /greens /greys/blues constantly is this normal

Maybe this is a Screen Saver, set to start after 15 minutes. Open up Control Panel then Appearance and Personalization, then Screen Saver to check on this and perhaps choose a more pleasant screen saver.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Sharp Actius AL27 pixel problems

From what you described, it seems as though your LCD panel is going bad or the inverter board is bad. Does it change colors if you were to reposition (tilt) the LCD back and forth in either direction?

How does the Viewcam perform in sun light?

Very well because of the 1% low reflectivity color LCD view screen. The color LCD view screen absorbs 99% of all reflective light, thus reducing "wash out". Sharp is a leader in LCD technology.
