Question about Samsung SyncMaster 915N 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

After 5 years with no problems, my Samsung SyncMaster 915N monitor is blank with the exception of an error message that says something about needing optimum resolution. At first we thought it might be the video card in the CPU so we plugged my laptop into the monitor and it was still blank. We tried to adjust the resolution via the buttons at the bottom of the screen, but the only one that seems to do anything is the power button. Any ideas out there?

The optimum resolution for this monitor is 1280x1,024 @60Hz.
The resolution setting is done at the PC not at the monitor.
After 5 years, more likely components failure will be the filter caps in the power supply section, that will be the first thing to look for inside. You can see failed SAMSUNG monitors here:

Why my monitor screens is color green


Your RGB settings has most likely been altered, resulting in some problems. Check your settings menu on the monitor itself and reset the settings to default. If that is not the problem, it's probably the computer's settings that has caused this change. You will need to go to the computers monitor settings and reset that to default to get back to normal colours.

Light blink for awhile when started boost


Hello,

This is a very common symptom of power supply failure on this model. There are parts called capacitors that go bad and this keeps the power supply from starting up the monitor right. You can fix the problem by replacing the capacitors on the power supply board. They will need to be soldered in but it is an easy thing to do. Here is a link to information and a parts list.

try to connect monitor with other computer, this way u will confirm weather the fault is in monitor or in computer. if it is in monitor, check for bent pins in connectors which connecting computer & monitor, firmly connect both ends of connecter & tighten the screws. if problem not solves then u need to replace main board of monitor.

Sansung 915N no video


the monitor gets the wrong signal from the computer (refresh rate too high or scan rate too high )
check the screen refresh rate from Display properties / Settings tab / Advanced button / Monitor settings
worse case: damaged hardware

Go into advanced settings from the settings tab of "display properties" and select the "monitor" tab, from there, try changing the refresh rate. Toggle "hide modes that this monitor cannot display" if you do not see any other settings in the drop down other than the one that is already selected.

Monitor works for about 30 mins then goes blank with a messahe reading 'Not Optimum'


Hi Rick I have the same problem. Have you found a solution yet? I had the power supply tested, that is not the problem. It seems to go off when it gets hot. If I point a fan at it, it seems to last longer before blacking out. Pete
