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!

Hi Mdamon,

Please follow the below steps to solve your problem :-

Your LCD panel has the settings button which you need to use to adjust your LCD screen to the center and make sure there is no black strip remaining after appropriate settings,

To make things easy for you , click on the below to download the manual directly so that you have a complete idea of the steps that are supposed to be taken for the screen adjustment.

There are many factory settings of different settings that are preset and can be activated using the panel.

Tip :- Try changing the screen resolution via the display properties from your desktop as an incorrect resolution could result in bad images or blurred images.

Hope this helps, your feedback would be appreciated.

Color is very washed out, contrast very bad even after adjusting. Very hard to see lines. Basically the screen is all washed out!

You can try going into the display functions using the menu buttons and performing a factory reset. Good luck.

well you are correct and when it come's with the lcd monitors it is known that when a pixel is subjected to same amount of charge for a long time it might retain the residue of charge even after the amount is changed so this reason why you get this problem and in order tackle this just try to use some changing screen savers or just turn the monitor switch off while you are not around it.

good luck.

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.

Proview monitor PL926WSi Screen goes out after about 5 seconds

Hello Joe,

A red or pink coloration on the screen indicates bad backlight bulbs. They are just like standard fluorescent bulbs just much smaller. When they start failing they light up with a pink color and that will make the screen look pink or red. You can change them but it may not be worth the trouble. You can do a Google search for compact fluorescent tubes and check prices.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Titiling green pixels over greys an blacks

If your getting weird pixels combos on the monitor then the screen itself is going bad and the monitor will have to be replaced.

This has to do with the air pockets behind the screen losing its resilence and not able to keep a charge.

Samsung samtron 55v display problem

assuming that u r a professional..
i guess there is no problem with ur monitor, it sounds like itz due to graphic adapter..either the adapter on ur system main/mother board/agp/pci/pcie is damaged or itz simply 'driver corruption'..
don't panic..check for driver update/download n reinstall graphic/display driver..
however, 1st make sure that the Screen Resolution (1024x768 or as applicable) and Color Quality (32 bit or as applicable) is correct..from Display Settings->Settings tab..
always better to contact system admin/vendor....
