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.

Why has my monitor turned orange. model dylm19r6 computer monitor


If you mean the light on your monitor is orange instead of green, it means the monitor is not receiving data from the computer.
Here's some tricks I would try...
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 orange 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).

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.

Benq g900w monitor used to work..now displays message 'no cable connected'. i have checked my laptop and it says that it IS connected and working effectively???


Well with all generic monitors, even after working fine for so long, one day you will wake up plug them in and there it goes no cable connected...
IF that is the case, i usually recommend the drivers first.. Uninstalling the drivers...
Go to manufacturers of the laptop website, more than likely the drivers can be outdated, the actual port is not working and or the monitor is bad, those are the three things that can really happen in this case...

Go to the laptop manufacturers website. Under support and downloads section,
update the driver for the display adapter, and that will resolve any issue with the drivers usually if it is a port issue it can just be outdated drivers as well, so once updated and restarted try connecting back the monitor and see what happens...
if it used to work and stopped test the monitor on another system see if it works if it does then and you already updated your drivers for display on laptop then call the laptop people and see what is happening... but the drivers should be your resolution...
Good luck hope this works for you...
