Re: Having problem with buttons they are not working

The monitor thinks the "AUTO" button is depressed continuously. If water or something got into the button membrane and shorted it out it could cause this to happen. You would have to open up the screen to try and clean the buttons but that's not a guaranty.

When i turn on my lcd samsung syncmaster 540n it displayed a lot of colored vertical and horizontal video when i attached my cpu but it turns on when i powered my cpu

boot up in safe mode (press f8 while booting) If your monitor works now, you need to go the the samsung site and download the driver for you monitor. I assume windows 7, since that is where most of the monitor problem occur.

Samsung LCD have a Maximum of 3 to 5 color plan predesigned. To use them you need to click the required buttons in the bottom of the LCD. Select the one that fit best to you.
If you think nothing happening use manual.
Or try changing the video setting for your movie player.

Good day, my sumsung syncmaster 540n monitor did not show the display however it starts after 40 to one hour .What is the problem.

Hello, The problem might be that the signal cable at the back was not properly inserted, i mean the cable with the blue color and has 15 pins. Make sure it is properly inserted to your monitor as well as the other end to your Desktop. If this continues,Bring another LCD monitor, a good one and connect it to your system, to see what happens. If it works fine then the former monitor is faulty, if not your system has the problem. Regards

I have a samsung syncmaster 204T monitor. Everything was fine until last night when i kept my system on standby for approx 5-6 hrs. Now whenever i start my system there is only a green led on front panel...

I just started having the same problem! The green light flashes, but the monitor is blank. None of the button work (menu, source, etc...) and nothing changes when I disconnect it from the computer. I was suspecting a bad graphics card at first, but now I'm thinking the monitor itself is bad?!

Funny monitor problem

If I were you I would invest in a new video display card. Sounds your card is intermittant, because the chances of a tube type display and a TFT display having the same problem is slim to none. LOL Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread
