Question about Samsung 192MP (Silver) 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

How do I increase the size of my desktop and remove the blue border?

My 192MP monitor is hooked up to my laptop running XP. When used as a TV everything works fine but now when I use it as a monitor the screen size has changed so that it appears smaller & there is a large blue border where the screen used to occupy. Basically it looks like the desktop is set in the center of a blue background. The resolution has not changed so why does it appear smaller and how can I fix this?

There are three size settings you can choose from, Normal, Wide and Zoom. Try changing it using the 'Size' button on the remote or by going into the On Screen Display (OSD) settings. If you don't have a manual you can get one here. Hope this helps.

When I play dvds or watch videos on youtube the screen has a black border on both sides reducing the size of the screen


If you hit full screen on the youtube video and its not full screen, then it sounds like your monitor resolution is to low.

Rt click on a place on your screen and pick screen resolution, then pick resolution and increase it.

The first number is width, so say it's on 800x600 then go 1024x768

Need to increase font size without effecting pixel clarity


The first step for optimal readability is to set your PC's graphic output to the native resolution of your monitor.
The Samsung 2033SW is a little unusual in this regard since it provides a matrix of 1600 x 900 pixels, which is not very common.
If your graphics board has DVI output, I'd also make sure to use a DVI cable to connect to the monitor instead of VGA.

Windows XP and above support a font rasterization technology called "ClearType", see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ClearType. This page also provides references to the ClearType tuner PowerToy for XP, which is available to Windows users at no extra charge. Windows 7 has a control panel for ClearType out-of-the-box.

If you still need to increase font size, you can increase it from the Display Control Panel, too, "Medium" font size scales to 125'%, "Large" fonts to 150% the normal size.. Changing the DPI (dots per inch) setting in the monitor control panel cannot be recommended since some software cannot cope with alterations here (dialog boxes or user interfaces with text in wrong places or sticking out of the window... yeeks.)

Remove cover from HP w2408h monitor


pop the roundish 'HP' cover of the back of the stand. Remove the 4 black screws and the stand comes away. The case is just a clamshell affair, the main piece is the rear cover, the LCD front plastic border locks into it. The screen with components mounted is sitting loose in the back cover once the front border is removed. The trick is to pry off the front border without damage. Hook the fingers under the border where it lays against the LCD screen, wiggle, pull, curse and do it again. The top and bottom borders come loose easier than the end borders. Once these are popped free, stand the unit on end between your knees and pry away the end borders. A wide putty knife slipped between the border and metal frame will save your fingers but don't damage the screen. When the front border is off, lay the unit face-up on a table, undo the screws for the control panel and power switch modules, flip it over and lift off the back panel. Everything is under a metal casing.. I had no voltage from the power supply, trying to find a Fairchild chip SG6902SZ on the small control module, P/N ILTR-003, else the Pwr Bd, P/N ILP-004..

How do I retune my Samsung Syncmaster 19''LCD TV as channel 5 is not available.


Manually select channel 5 (NOT by pressing "channel-up" while viewing channel 4) and press the 'ADD/DELETE CHANNEL' button.

Or, run through the complete "automatic channel seek" first-time-setup function to "re-discover" all the available channels.

Desktop too large for monitor


This has to do with the resolution settings on your display, or someone has changed the default dpi, or the bios has been adjusted.
What OS are you using? xp? vista?
What make & model # of computer?
Right click the desktop, choose properties> then settings>make sure the screen resolution is set correctly, then choose advanced and make sure the dpi is set to normal. Reboot.
If that doesn't work, check for another graphics tab in the advanced settings for your display, like Intel graphics or something, and check the screen resolution set there and adjust it if necessary.
Otherwise, check the osd for your monitor and see if it's set to factory specs.
But I'm guessing the techs that did the work on your power supply had a different sized monitor hooked up and made an adjustment they forget to reset.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
