    Adjusted the brightness setting on my Samsung 245BW monitor, and it went black. The power button LCD is still lit but the screen is dead. I couldn't get the "Check Signal Cable" self-test to display.

I had the same screen and I was told that it is a design fault and too costly to repair.

Samsung 245BW No Display

have you tried this monitor on another computer? what was the result? Also, try laying the monitor down flat and see if you see any "ghosting" from the characters on the screen. (if the backlight goes out on the monitor, you should be able to see some of the graphics displayed on the screen still with a flashlight or at an angle if the monitor is working)
let me know what you find out

Samsung SyncMaster 245BW - no image - screen flickered once or twice and then went dark. Reconnected cables, tried different cables - all with same result - no picture. Any usggestions?

It may ahave 24vdc power supply problem due to bad caps, ect, or bad backlights inverter board, worst case will be the lamp assemblies. It will require in-depth troubleshooting.

Hello, I've got a S. Syncmaster 245b, but the powerbutton light is on, but the screen stays dark black. Not even the note of it searching for digital or analog signals. What would be the most...

The power supply is not feeding the 24vdc to the inverter board, or bad backlights inverter board, those are the two boards you need to check.

Monitor no longer works - all black

there is no reset button on lcd monitors, check power cable first, if the blue pilot led lights but no picture, you might need to bring the unit to the shop for servicing..

Blank (dark) notebook screen after hooking up digital ext monitor

I notice a difference in the setup of the two monitors, have you installed the correct driver for the new screen?

Try F8 on startup to get into safe mode, this should allow you to use the default VGA screen, and to reset the correct monitor drivers.
