Question about Samsung SyncMaster 245BW Monitor

Syncmaster 245B Monitor Shivering horizontal lines

My monitor has these "dancing" horizontal lines running the whole width of the screen. If I follow one "line" I notice it is gradually moving up or down the screen -soetimes up sometimes down. Each "line" is a distortion between 2-5mm thick. They are very difficult to see against a white background (such as this page on which I'm typing). I've tried different Magibright settings but it makes no difference

Dead pixel 100% My first 245BW had a dead pixel, exchanged it. This is why you buy these because of the 3 year factory warranty.

Re: Syncmaster 245B Monitor Shivering horizontal lines

Which type of video connector are you using? VGA or DVI?

If you are using VGA, the horizontal line could be due to interference, like from an electric motor (fan) near the video cable.

Other thing to try is to change the refresh rate. In Windows XP: Control panel --> Display Properties --> Settings tab --> Advanced button --> Monitor tab --> Screen refresh rate. The default ot 60Hz for LCD monitors. Bump it up to 75Hz. That could give a clue to the problem or maybe even fix it.

Try getting anything that may have a magnetic field away from the LCD (speakers, phones, any electronic product), does the problem persist?

Solid line completly across screen, monitor is brand new

Your comp's video card refresh rate (in Hertz, abbreviated Hz) may not be totally compatible with the monitor. Check the properties of your video card, and change the refresh rate (you may have to look around for it) to 60 Hz. This is a pretty standard refresh rate that works with just about every monitor. If it's already there, I'm afraid someone else will have to try and help!

Hope this helps, and please rate my answer, good OR bad.

Good luck!
