I have SyncMaster 940nw LCD monitor, which works strangely: screen is often black(sometimes I can see unclear flickering), power indicator is double blinking one time per second. Menu doesn't show up...

The problem is in the inverter board which powers the back lights behind the screen. The cause is bad capacitors that sometimes bulge at the top indicating they are open. The board needs to be changed or an attempt made to repair the old one. Now you indicated a second problem with the menu not coming up, you probably would be further ahead to replace the monitor.

The monitor will not work. We switch it on and it flashes POWER SAVING MODE and goes dark

hi laura,

you may have to disable the POWER SAVING MODE by using the monitor's menu settings(see front buttons, on older models they're hidden
behind a click-panel in the front of the monitor)
it is the same menu you would use for adjusting the monitor's brightness etc.)

If you still face the problem, do hook it up to another PC and boot up.
Try using the PC with another monitor as well, just to double-check the video card is ok.

If stilll the same prob, it could be broke .

Good luck

The problem of OSD Menus popping up automatically are usually caused due to a faulty switch in the Menu button which is getting switched on automatically.

This menu will not harm the computer but constant OSD menu will most probably lead to permanent damage to the pixels in the LCD screen plus it is a constant irritation to your eyes which are most precious.

This problem can be rectified by replacing the faulty menu switch. Hope this solves your problem Thanks.

Hi Denise,

Hope this helps; If you can control this before, ask for asisstance in opening monitor chassis with certified technician due to High Voltage Shock risk. Resolder the menu buttons and the control circuits. Resolder also SMPS module driving voltage to control circuit.

Best regards,
you are an idiot i have the same problem several times with this unit too. and it has nothing to do with a burnt wire you ********* stupid ********.
