Samsung SyncMaster 914v monitor - blank completely pink screen

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 914v monitor attached to my laptop. I'm trying to view some video footage downloaded from a surveillance camera. The video file is from a proprietary software and has an mp4 extension. The monitor shows the video as completely pink (no picture) but the laptop shows the video fine. But - the laptop is stored under the desk and I can't view the footage on it without changing my whole setup, which I don't want to do if the fix is easy. I've been able to view these videos on this monitor before, although it's been a few months since I tried. The monitor doesn't seem to be dying. What is going on?

Pink and Green Horizontal lines across screen


Normally, horizontal lines on an LCD or LED monitor indicate a bad control board inside the monitor. However, occasionally the problem can be caused by loose or bad cable connections. The only things that you can really do is to disconnect both ends of the monitor cable and reconnect them firmly. Also, you can disconnect the monitor cable completely and just leave the power cable. With only the power cable attached, you can turn the monitor on and off. The monitor should have a "startup screen" or display a message that says something like "Video Cable Disconnected". If the green and pink lines are still present without your computer connected, then the monitor has gone bad. The good news is that Samsung SyncMaster monitors usually carry a 3 year warranty, whereas most monitors only have a 1 year warranty. You may be able to have the monitor replaced at no cost to you if it's less than 3 years old.

Samsung Syncmaster 204bw has a red screen


A red or pink tint to the screen indicates that the back light bulbs are failing and are about to burn out. Its time to look for a new monitor.

What adaptor do i need to connect a new Mac Mini with HDMI input to an older SyncMaster 914v?


I assume you mean HDMI output. You'd need a 'HDMI Female to VGA Male' adapter or a 'HDMI Male to VGA Male' cable.

Such as:

I've no idea if that site is reputable or not, just did a search on Google.

Samsung syncmaster 914v monitor problem. Right side of display is darker image. Can see dots like a newspaper print or looking through a screen. When display is black it almost appears like an image is...


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

This is likely the LCD panel itself - you are describing a left/right image error that can be only created by the left/right division by the LCD driver wrapped around the outside of the LCD panel.
If your monitor uses a separate circuit board to drive the LCD, it could be this driver board.
Either way, it will require an LCD panel - $$$

My samsung syncmaster 914v isnt working when i plug it in and turn it on all it does is flicker every like 10 seconds


Ok, a few basic things to check/try.
  1. What colour is the power LED, does it change when the screen flickers?
  2. Is the power cable firmly seated.
  3. Is the monitor cable firmly seated.
  4. Try another power lead.
  5. Take a look at the plugs on the monitor lead, does it look like there are any bent/broken pins.
  6. Again, try another monitor lead.
  7. Try connecting the monitor to another pc.
If none of these have any effect, you'll need to take it in somewhere to get it looked at.

My screen just turned yellow for no reason. I tried restarting, shutting down, and system restore but it is still yellow


Screen-colours are "additive" -- mix just 2 of the 3 primary colours, and you could get "yellow" -- mix all 3 or the primary colours, and you will get "white".

In order of "easy" and "cheap" to "difficult" and "expensive":

Check that the "data" cable is tightly connected at both ends,
so that all 3 colours are being transmitted from your computer.

Try a different "data" cable between the computer and the LCD.

Try connecting the LCD to a different computer (laptop or desktop).

Try adding a different video-adapter into your computer.
