Question about Samsung SyncMaster 753S 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

All the words on the screen suddenly became distorted and unable to read, kind of the same appearance if someone were to press hard on a screen of this kind how it leaves a wierd color impression. Also wierd lines allover everything. I rebooted, didn't help, tried to restore, computer froze, finally I hit the off button to the computer,then the monitor,waited, turned them back on and now it is fine. Does this mean my monitor is going bad? I do leave it on 24/7 with screensaver photos, does that also shorted the lifespan? Only had it 3 years.

Sounds like a videocard problem, thermal issue with the GPU, and yes running it 24/7 will decrease the lifespan of the monitor.
However getting 3 years life from a samsung CRT is a pretty good effort considering how often their picture tubes fail.

It was working good all of sudden screen became black and the PXE E61


It seems to have lost communication with the hard drive. Check physically (pop out and then back in) and in BIOS. Make sure its the 1st boot option.

Also disable PXE boot in BIOS or remove from 1st boot option. This is a LAN (network) boot option.

Replace or resolder your convergance IC's. What is a common problem is over time the heat emitted by the chips weakens the solder joints on the circuit board. If your lucky just a resolder job is all it needs.

The blue screen that you couldn't read the words on is called "the blue screen of death"..
If you're already stuck, no one will probably be able to lead you through this. Your best hope is that you have some kind of warranty still available that may cover it.... Otherwise, you're gonna need to call around for someone to try to repair it. Pretty much give them what you wrote as your question, word for word, and they should know if they can help. Chances of ever using it again are about 50-50. .. Sorry - good luck.

Lines on the screen goeing through the #'s making it hard to read


Hello,
Since I do not see the kind of screen you have, I surmise (maybe wrongly) that the split screen is activated.
Press [MODE]. Use [DownArrow] to scroll to where is says Full Horiz G-T. Highlight FULL and [ENTER] Then [2nd][QUIT].

If that does not solve the problem
[2nd][MEM] [7:Reset][2:defaults][2:Reset]

Hope it helps.

Hitachi 46'' Rear Projection TV has distorted picture


Make sure no one pushed the front screens in a little. That will cause exactly what you have. I've seen cases like this where someone would move there set with one had pushing on the front screen and dis-lodging them creating that problem... Hope this helps.

If you were to gently "squeeze" the screen bezel where the lines are, do they go away, or get worse?
