Re: My monitor screen just went white.
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.

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.
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
if the screen was fryed the fuse would of blew which means there would be no lights at all.. the best thing you can do is plug your screen into another pc to see if anything happens.. if nothing happens then yeah your screen must of messed up somewhere.. but if your screen works on another computer then your graphics card config cant be right somewhere along the line
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.
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?
IT is 18 years OLD so has CCFL back lamps that all turn yellow.
is that it? if the OSD is yellow the (white looks yellow) that means the CCFL black lamp tubes are Shot.
i cant see what you see, no photos posted.
ok the monitor has and OSD, on screen display
i see you found that. but then fail to say what you saw there.
"you could see the background on the text as white. "
what does that mean,?
no matter what that is a bad Monitor.
the OSD works with no computer at all, so if the OSD fails
OSD brain, inside, then the monitor is bad.
all monitors worked previously so is not key to why its failing now.
only the tests now, matter. today/
my post above is for any monitor that fails the OSD tests
no PC turned off. or connected to any PC that works
the PC resolution must never exceed
1024 × 768 at 75 Hz Refresh Rate
on this old old dog. or the screen goes back with error
OUT OF RANGE.
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.
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
