Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen went black, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see any icon or image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of CCFL lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

What's your problem?

First, make sure this isn't coming from your signal source; these items are not listed in any of the functions described in the manual for your monitor.
If disconnecting, changing or turning off your signal source doesn't get rid of the control item display, try resetting the monitor (maybe the display has some extra firmware features not in the documentation):
  1. Press the Menu button on the side of the monitor.
  2. From the On-Screen Display, navigate to the Setup&Reset menu using the arrow buttons, then press the Source/Select button.
  3. Navigate to "Reset" and select it.
This should restore everything to the factory default setting and get the TV/monitor out of whatever mode it's in.

Lock on monitor adjustments don't know how to turn off the lock so we can adjust brightness and color

Follow these instructions :
  1. Turn on your Samsung monitor (if it isn't already.)

  2. Press the "AUTO" button on your Samsung monitor. This will run the automatic configuration utility. This will look at your current computer settings and adjust your monitor to best match those. This will take a few seconds. If this has calibrated the monitor to meet your needs, you are finished with the process. If it hasn't, continue to Step 3.
  3. Press the "Menu" button on your Samsung computer monitor.
  4. Use the arrows and the "Enter" button on the monitor to highlight and select various settings categories.
  5. Use the "Brightness" menu on your Samsung monitor to adjust how bright or dark you want the image.
  6. Use the "Colors" menu to adjust how prominent certain colors are displayed on your Samsung monitor.
  7. Use the "Contrast" menu to adjust the level of black on your Samsung monitor.
  8. Select "Save and Exit" to save your changes and exit the Samsung monitor's on Screen menu.

Osd main controls locked

*NOTE* This answer was actually found on another source.
The easiest solution to try is to reset the on screen display in the menu. Hold down the Menu button (it is probably marked Ok) for at least a minute. A menu list will appear on your monitor screen. Using the adjust button, press the arrows to enter the menu. Scroll down to the Reset section. On the right side of your screen, you will see an alternating Yes/No choice. When the Yes message flashes, press the Ok button. The menu should be reset and the flashing OSD control message should disappear.

If resetting the OSD doesn't work, then you probably have a physical problem with your Menu button. Sometimes, particularly on older machines, the connections to the circuit board are dirty or failing. Because you have to actually get into the monitor itself, you will probably void any remaining warranty by attempting this fix. If your monitor is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer to see if there is a local repair shop that can help you.

If you want to tackle this issue yourself, grab a screwdriver and take the plunge. Remove the casing on the monitor itself and locate the contact switch for the menu button on the circuit board. Sometimes, just working it with your fingers or a screwdriver is enough to unstick it - you can try to clean off any dust or grime that has accumulated around it to see if that is the cause.

How do I make the page to cover the whole screen?

Cut a larger sheet of paper. Just kidding!
What 'page'. Do you mean Windows desktop? Or an application within Windows?
If the desktop is not filling the screen, the monitor should have an 'auto' setting within its menus.
My Samsung monitor (different model) has both a menu button and an auto button.
If you are referring to an application window (you can see some of the desktop around the outside of your application, just maximise your application.

I've just connected my Samsun LCD monitor to a new HP desktop. I had been with a Dell. Part of the horizontal as well as vertical data is off the screen. I can't figure out how to adjust it with the...

you are probably not going to adjust it with the buttons.
You need to go to the video settings in Windows and choose a resolution that fits the screen.
I would be willing to bet that the new screen is not the same aspect ratio as your old one.
You can change resolutions until you find the correct one for your computer and screen.

Problem with syncmaster 204bw

Hi there.
unfortunately this is not a driver issue. if possible, test this screen on a different PC/Laptop.
it sounds like a problem with the screen itself - meaning you will have to take it to a service centre, or if its under warrantee - take it to the shop you baught it from.
*** NB note: samsun screens normally carry a guarantee of AT LEAST 3 years, and not only 1 Year.
