    Louie12fix, Thanks so much for the info. Other monitors do work from that port. Thus, I think the one monitor is done. I think I got my monies worth: I ran it for about 18 hours/day for about 600 days. Do u think the other monitors are about to go bad as well?? Thanks again, ejones999.

Ejones999, Could be toast. if under 3yr old, contact samsung and see if they will do swapout for you. Did you connect working monitor to the port where the bad unit was to PROVE 710N is really bad? Tech type person will need to evaluate unit to see if it is a viable candidate for possible REFURBISHING. You failed to state age of unit and /or # of total "ON" hours unit may have. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel on aol .com Bye for now.

    ejones999, I would never try to predict lifespan of any monitor be it CRT, PLASMA, LCD. Too tough to call. I'm looking at a Gateway with a manufacturing date of 2006 !! It could fail in 2 days or 531 days! Who Knows??? Not I. Have you been to YOUTUBE and searched for "LCD Disassembly" video clips that are 8-12 min long. Also check out LCD repair vids. and research stuff on Swollen Electrolytic Capacitors or try www . badcaps.net or a hundred other sites dealing with LCD monitor failures. ejones999 you have fun now! Louie nth of windy cty. bye

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

First thing I would try will beusing this monitor with another PC using the same the same setup to see if it works OK. We need to narrow down the cause of the problem first since you have three parts that can be bad; Monitor, DVI cable, PC Video card/PC. It is just a process of elimination to locate the problem.

Monitor is only showing vertical/horizontal gray/white screen


Your video card has fried unfortunately. If you are familiar with the internal workings of a PC you can open it up and check the power cells on the video card itself, they will usually show signs of damage such as cracking etc. I would have a qualified professional take a look at it. I would recommend www.tigerdirect.com as a starting place for finding a new one

Lcd monitor 20.1


The white screen is caused by a total lack of control over all pixels. The opposite effect; all black, happens when a failure turns all pixels on, blocking all but a small amount of light.
This could have more than one source; one output of the power supply has failed so the logic section no longer is receiving supply voltage or an external source has damaged the video input of the monitor. The backlight responsible for the white screen is obviously working as this is a separate power supply output to an inverter that powers the backlight lamp.  I'm afraid this is not a DIY repair.

Still having trouble with EMachines T3882


I feel your pain. I finally moved my pc to a room with no windows! But seriously, try a different monitor first. See if you can borrow someone's to just try it before you do anything else. If that borrowed monitor works fine, then you know what the problem is. (Which I believe is the problem.) By the way, what started all of your problems?

Connecting lap tops to monitors...


Try connecting a mouse and keyboard to the laptop and then start it with the top closed. Not sure if this will work on your model, but it works on a lot of laptops. This should force the PC to use your external monitor as the primary one.

I am trying to connect my laptop to the Polaroid LCD TV, as i would like to use the TV monitor as a computer monitor (my laptop monitor is broken). So I connect the correct wire to correct places, however...


The simple patch that I found (same problem) was to start by using any old monitor that I could borrow to set up my Dell Laptop.
After getting the Laptop booted on a regular monitor I right clicked on the desktop and went to properties then to the settings tab.
Here I found the dual monitor settings (#2 will usually be dis-abled by default.)
Click on #2 monitor and set the resolution to the lowest number (800 x 600 works well)
Then I clicked on "make this monitor my primary monitor"
As soon as I clicked apply the PC Windows screen appeared on the Polaroid TV screen

Earlier I had set the secondary monitor as "extend this screen to this monitor"
This also worked but I had to "drag the current screen to the right all the way off the
"borrowed monitor" until it appeared on the TV screen. The mouse pointer will be there also.
At first it took a little getting used to but in a few minutes I was up and running.
Hope this helps your situation
