If the refresh rate is not properly set the monitor may have a wavy or an appearance that lines are going down ... This may also cause a flickering affect.
Distorted or skewed image on monitor. Issue: Distorted or skewed image on monitor.
Cause: This issue can occur from any of the below possibilities.

  4. Interference.
  5. Bad monitor.
Solution: Windows Issue If your monitor has a proper display until it gets into Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP please see document CH000121 for software or setting related issues.
Loose or defective cable You may receive a distorted image when the cable is loose or defective. Disconnect the video cable going from the back of the computer and verify that no pins are bent, burnt or broken. Once verified re-connect the monitor cable.
Refresh rate issue If the refresh rate is not properly set the monitor may have a wavy or an appearance that lines are going down or across the monitor slowly or fast. This may also cause a flickering affect. Additional information about how to change the refresh rate can be found on document CH000558.
Interference A distorted image can be caused by magnetic or other types of interference. Verify no speakers, fans or other magnetic devices are close to the monitor.
Bad Monitor If the above possibilities have been checked it is likely that the monitor is bad. To verify this it is recommended that the monitor be temporarily disconnected and then connected to another computer. This can be a friends computer, a work computer, and/or a computer at a service center. You can also help verify a defective monitor by connecting another monitor to your computer.

How do I turn off the Samsung sync-master p2050 monitor?


If it doesn't turn off by holding the power button down for 10 seconds, then it cannot be turned off by the power button alone, like most modern lcd monitors. Most modern monitors goes into standby mode. To completely cut power, you must unplug the power cable.
I've enclosed a link to the install manual for reference.

Computer monitor cycles on and off when the computer boots up but seems to have constant power when just turned on


The boot process goes through various display modes. Each time it switches, the monitor has to set itself for that mode. This causes the monitor to flicker while it's adjusting. Perfectly normal operation.

Auto adjustment locked and picture is fliker


Its not auto adjusting because of the flickering. Its flickering because the screen itself is losing voltage so it cant stay on. You can try hooking up the monitor to another computer just to rule out a bad video card but it looks like replacing the LCD is the only solution.

Why am I getting osd main controls locked flashing and then the same message saying unlocked and i am unable to clear it - posted in Monitors ... the attention osd locked is constantly flashing on and off...


Most of the monitors have a function to lock the OSD to prevent accidental changes in the configuration of the monitor.
If you are constantly getting the message about OSD being locked and unlocked then it means that the OSD locking button is constantly pressed.
Usually it is the "Menu" button on the monitor which is used to lock the OSD.
Check if the Menu button is constantly pressed.

My monitor is showing constant 'auto adjustment in progress' in every 3 sec, i cannot get rid of it.i cannot watch any movie or read my email.constant getting black out and showing me that same msg


it happens because you have selected( accidentally or otherwise) the resolution that the monitor cannot handle easily. So each time turn on the computer the screen tries to adjust itself to work with the resolution that you have selected. Select a screen resolution that the monitor can handle and work with.

Northgate Monitor - Model No. KM-718


Hi, Assuming that the monitor does not have any problem or defective components/settings, you can try adjusting your PC by: 1. Right click on any clear are of your desktop; 2. Click on properties; 3. Go to Settings tab; 4. Set your Screen Resolution to your desired size; 5. Verify that you have Highest (32bit) setting in your Color Quality; 6. Click on Advanced button; 7. Click on Monitor tab; 8. Select highest Screen refresh rate (maybe 85 Hertz) within capacity of your video card & monitor; 9. if a selection or setting does not work, pressing escape will revert you back to the previous setting; 10. Apply, OK. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
