Re: Samsung Monitor

On the front panel press the Menu button for about 5 seconds. Once you press it the OSD will pop up. Keep holding the button until the OSD disappears. The setup should be unlocked now.

Re: Samsung Monitor

Have you tried a universal remote control , you can get one from Wally World and it may give you your fuctions back again. Have you cycled power , turn off set , unplug and let set for a few minutes then try again.

Locked out, monitor controls dont work ie vol,source, programmes, no remote control, help please

Without a remote control, you can't proceed. To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site Check this site too. Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some online sites too, which deals with electronic spare parts.

Remote turnes on both pc

The remote codes for each model of monitor is the same. Most manufacturers only use a 1 or 2 codes for every TV or monitor made so the same remote will always work both units. You would need to have 2 different brands to have independent control.

Incidentally, i am using the monitor as tv, not computer monitor--it is hooked to the satellite(Dish)--image is perfect, but no sound. The adjustment on the remote works, and I can see that it thinks it is...

Hi well i assume you are using the HDMI output? or maybe you are using the ordinary Video out? In any event what you may need to do is hook up also the Red & White Stereo Audio... on the TV to the Output of the PC's sound card. This will then give you sound.
Also when changing the sound NOW when using the two you must control the sound by first setting a volume on the TV with the Remote, and set a level, then ALSO you can adjust this as well with the remote or Volume control of the receiver, ie: The PC's volume,

You could get a universal remote that will let you operate multiple devices all from the same remote. You would probably need to check it to see if it would control the monitor, but you might be able to treat it as a TV.
