Question about Samsung SyncMaster 740N 17" LCD Monitor
I have a SyncMaster 740n which has a brightness/gamma problem. When I turn the monitor on I can see everything. But then right after it turns on it seems that the brightness/gamma fades down real dark. I can barely see the screen. However it still shows the screen. I faced it towards the sunlight and can barely make out my screen. I was thinking the gamma/brightness in the screen to be broken. But why would it show my screen perfectly for a second and then fade slowly dark?

This is common problem observed in many monitors compaq,HP,HCL,IBM this is happens mainly in rainy season due to moisture,by this moisture monitor button circuit get rust inside and button pad remain pressed. so it shows a strip at the middle of monitor like contrast or brightness. So this is minor problem just replace the monitor display control button sensor or circuit.Temporarily you can warm up the monitor by hanging a bulb of 60 watt nearer your monitor to takeoff the moisture.(Dont hang the bulb too near to the monitor). It definitely solves your problem.
Have a Nice Day

eduardo_iros, Read more of my responses to others in my FIXYA profile so that you will know ALL the options you have to doing a repair or having someone else do it for you!! Follow all the links to other web sites and you will understand why your monitor has a problem with BLACK SCREEN or BLACK and BLANK SCREEN. Your monitor no different than any other CCFL backlit LCD display!!! It can be fixed (DIY) for less than $10 (sometimes) or for 4x that if you contract out the work! Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie. READ, READ, READ before you do anything.
