I figure it out that best solution for the problem is to press and hold button Monitor adjustment with same tape or stuck it with piece of wood. Message never appear it again!

Re: Power button won't turn off monitor

Problem is made by switches which are bad quality, you have to take your monitor to the nearest samsung service center or if you want you can change this switches by yourself. You can find them in conrad stores named phap3363 and 700310 - 62.
Best regards

Does this happen when you leave your computer idle for few minutes? If so,then the Pc is
simply turning off your monitor to save power when you don't use it.And you can turn it back
on simple by hitting keys on your keyboard or moving the mouse to and fro.However if you
would like to disable/change this option the please do the following.

If you are using Win XP,then

1.Click the windows Start button,then click Control Panel,click Performance And Maintanance
and then click Power Options.

From the window that opens,choose the time period after which you would like your monitor to
get into power saving mode (the default is 5 mins) or choose 'Never' from the drop down box
next to where it says 'Turn off monitor'.Then click the apply button and finally the ok button.

If you are using Win 7 or Vitsa,the please follow the following link to learn how to disable this option.

The power switch does not switch (no click)

Unplug the monitor from the power
Unplug the monitor from the computer
Plug the monitor back in.
Try turning it on.

DOES IT SAY "NO SOUCRE DETECTED" or soemthing like that???

if it DOESN'T it means there is something wrong with the computer.

if it DOES:

plug it back on to the computer, turn the computer power off.
Press and hold the power button on the computer for about 15 seconds.
Plug the computer back on.
Try turning the computer on.
if it's not turning on again there a problem either with your monitor cable, or the plug, or the video card plug. It is unlikely that your video card is broken if you hear no wired series of short and long beeps when you try turning the computer on.
Good luck.

Won't turn on

This is a problem with either the power supply or or logic circuit. It could also be caused by a failure in the back light circuits. One of these problems has caused the power supply to go into protection mode and will not turn on due to bad voltages sensed in the feedback circuits. Return to dealer for service. Hope this helps you .
