Samsung 17" Flat Panel Monitor - Streaks

I bought a Samsung monitor through CompUSA in August of this year (2007), and it was fine until a month or so ago - now, after random amounts of time, streaks will apear that make it look as if anything being displayed is moving by really fast to the left.

They go away if I lean the monitor forward and wiggle it a bit, then put it back.

I've never heard of anything like this and could not find anything online about it. Any ideas?

Re: Samsung 17" Flat Panel Monitor - Streaks

I had this same problem with my ViewSonic LCD monitor. I tried turning the monitor off from the button on the front, and tried changing the settings for the monitor. That didn't help. But then I unplugged it from the power source, and the streaks immediately vanished!

17" flat screen upper half is dark until "thumped"!

The inverter board that controls the lighting on the screen is dying. since its a 5 year old monitor and only a 17 inch. the cost to repair is greater than the cost of buying a new one. unless you know how to replace the part yourself. I think its best to just buy a new monitor

I would follow the self-test below. If you see the same issue in the test screen then your monitor has lost it's sync and would need a board replaced.

If it dosn't appear during the test, then you might want to test it on another PC.

Self-Test Feature Check
1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer.
3. Turn on the monitor.
If the monitor is functioning properly, you will see a box in the illustration below.

This box appears during normal operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the monitor.

If your monitor screen remains blank after using the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.

Samsung monitor has "streaks"

LaurieEm posted a solution which seems to work for me (in addition to some other stuff, read my problem description) for this here

Try re-plugging your LCD monitor's VGA connection. It may be a case of corrosion on the pins or bad puggin of the cable. The problem is also reduced by using compressed air to blow out the cicuitry in the back of the monitor to remove dust. Both of these seem to work, and if you can't solve the problem totally with one, try the other one as well.
