Question about Samsung SyncMaster 171S 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor displays white and white only!

We've tested the ports and computer and they're working fine with other monitors (even the same model) but when we plug this one in it only displays plain white regardless of the video setting. Yes, we've tried rebooting! Thanks in advance for any info.

On gateway w350i computer works HDMI works but LCD comes on but is only white screen please help


1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

My hp 1502 lcd monitor only shows a white screen


If you don't use an identical monitors, then they may not work if your video card can not handle them. The "check video cable" it means the monitor does not get a signal, and it does not mean that the monitor is a problematic monitor. You can test this monitor as a single monitor (and try to connect it using first video port, and then move it to the second video port).

White screen on hp w2007 LCD monitor.


Troubleshoot an HP LCD Monitor
HP makes a number of liquid crystal display, or LCD, monitors.
LCD monitors create an image by passing light through a liquid crystal solution that either blocks the light or allows it to pass through to a color filter.
LCD monitors are ideal for use with a computer as they present an excellent still image and cannot suffer pixel burn-in like other flat-screen display technologies.
Even quality monitors run into the occasional problem and need some basic troubleshooting before sending them in for service.
Check the power cord to make sure that it is plugged in securely to both the monitor and the outlet. If you are using a surge protector, remove it and plug the power cord directly into an outlet that you know is working.
Detach and reattach both ends of the cable running from your computer to your monitor.
If your HP LCD monitor has more than one connector, use the other one to make sure that the connector isn't the issue.
Remove any switch or extension cable that may be present between the computer and the monitor.


Restart your computer. A fresh start will correct many software issues.


Check the documentation of your video card to make sure that it supports HDCP, or High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection, since the screen may be blank when you are trying to watch high-definition content through a video card that doesn't support it.
Some older HP LCD monitors also do not support HDCP, so check your monitor documentation as well.


Go to your video card manufacturer's website and install the latest drivers for your video card. Instructions for installing the drivers will vary by manufacturer, but they should be listed with the driver software.


Change your resolution to a preset video mode to make sure that you aren't trying to operate the monitor in an unsupported resolution.
Different models of HP LCD monitors support different preset video modes.
All of the preset video modes for your monitor are listed in your monitor's manual.
Resolutions of 1024 x 768 and lower are supported by almost all HP LCD monitors.


Press the "Auto/Select" button on the front of the HP LCD monitor to correct any images that are dark or blurry.
If this does not correct the image, press the "Menu" button on the front of the monitor to bring up the on-screen display menu, where you can use the "+" and "-" buttons to scroll through the options and "Enter" to select the option that you want to change.
Adjust the brightness and contrast as needed by selecting them and using the "+" and "-" keys. Press the "Menu" button to exit the menu.


Press the "Menu" button to enter the menu, scroll to "Image Control" and press "Enter."
From here you can choose the "Auto-Adjustment" option and the HP LCD monitor will automatically adjust the horizontal and vertical positioning to center the screen.
The ability to adjust these settings is available only if you are using VGA inputs.


Contact your retailer or manufacturer for any additional troubleshooting steps for your particular model of HP LCD monitor.
If your monitor still has issues, you may need to send it in to be serviced.

Fix a White Screen on an LCD Monitor
When an LCD screen has turned completely white, there are three normal causes: the screen is defective, the video cable is not connected correctly, or the graphics card on the motherboard of the computer is faulty.

You will need to troubleshoot these possibilities to determine which problem you have.
If you are not experienced in working on computer equipment, you should not attempt to disassemble your LCD screen because you could easily damage it.
Seek professional assistance unless you have experience working on computer hardware.

Disconnect the white LCD screen from the computer by unscrewing the blue monitor cable. Connect the working LCD screen to your computer by attaching its blue monitor cable to the same slot.
If your computer display does not show on the functioning LCD screen, try rebooting your computer.
If it still does not display, the problem is with your computer's graphic card on the motherboard. Seek professional repair assistance.
If your computer display shows normally on the working LCD screen, proceed to Step 2.
Unplug the LCD monitor with the white screen.
Disassemble the rear panel of the monitor with the small screwdriver.
Carefully separate the screws into piles so that you can keep track of how to reassemble the monitor.

Locate the internal video cable, a gray cable with a plug on the end that connects to the main components of the screen.
See the References section for photos of the video cable for assistance.
http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2008/04/13/laptop-lcd-screen-turned-white/
Unplug the cable, checking for any debris or blockage.
Reconnect the cable firmly.
Reassemble the LCD screen. Plug it in and connect it to your computer.
If the screen is still white, you have a defective LCD screen.
You will need to replace it or take it to a professional repair service for assistance.




Without this test you'll have to guess because as I mentioned before this could either bad motherboard or bad LCD screen.
You'll have to disconnect the video cable from the LCD screen (connector 2) and the inverter board (connectors 3 and 1).
After that you connect another working screen and test video.
For this purpose I'm using one of my test LCD screens.
My test screen is cracked and because of that you see a wide white band in the center but it still works fine for this test.
The original screen is white but my test screen works normal (except the crack of course) and I can see the image.

After this test I can tell that the problem must be related to the screen.
After I assembled everything back together and connected the original LCD, it's still white.
CONCLUSION. In my case this problem is related to the LCD screen and it has to be replaced.

Try the plugging the setup into a different monitor to eliminate the lead however it sounds like the monitors died. With cost of screens even if you can get hold of one you'll be better off getting a new monmitor.

There may be a few issues her, try changing the contrast andbrightness of the screen, this can be done by using the buttons on the monitor,check any documentation you have if you're having trouble. If this doesn't fix it could be a monitor problem for your videocard itself. Try using another monitor,if possible, to test your video card or try your monitor on another pc/laptop. If the monitor works fine on another machine then chancesare it's a problem with your video card, it may even need replacing.
