Question about Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Unclear Display I didn't have a problem with this monitor when I was using it with Dell computer.  Sometime ago, I don't know what caused it but my Dell just died.  I've been getting error messages regarding the system fan and it suddenly died.  I just purchased a macmini and connected it to my samsung syncmaster 204b thinking that i would work fine.  Somehow, all the images are not coming out clearly.  When I open up a new document file with a white background, I see flickering red sheen over it.  Help!

Goto cotrol panel/display/settings and set the resolution to 640x480. Make your you are using the video driver from the manufactorer for your video card. Windows generic drivers do not work well for all monitors. When you get the proper video driver you can reset your resolution back to a higher setting.

How do i fix if my computer scan is out of range


I am assuming you are talking about your monitor. What this message means is that your monitor can't handle the resolution your video card is set to. Re-start your computer and as soon as the first screen goes by (you know the one with all numbers and stuff) start hitting the F8 key. This will start the computer in safe mode which uses a very low resolution (usually 640 x 480). Once you see the display set the resolution to 800x600 which any display can handle. Re-boot and log in again and change the resolution to something higher. Test different settings. If you set one that is too high and you can't see the screen again don't touch anything as the screen will revert back to the previous setting if you do not confirm.

Hope this helps. If it does don't forget to give me a thumbs up.

Need to disassemble a Dell Ee228wfpc 22" flat panel display. Video or Service Manual would be useful. Suffering from Green Power utton is on, but no video on screen.


I found the user manual for you but I am obliged to warn you that disassembling a computer monitor is dangerous unless you really know what you're doing. Please be careful.

When I connect power to my Dell E198FP monitor, the power button flashes green and there is a small chirping noise and it won't display anything. It will also not allow me to power on/off the monitor but...


This is a failure of the power supply in the monitor. It can be easily fixed by replacing a pair of failed 680 microfarad 16 volt capacitors. If you have a friend who is handy with a soldering iron they will be readily apparent as failed since the top will "bulge". I just put this monitor back together and didn't write down the designators, unfortunately. This is the second monitor I have repaired with this failure...apparently the value is not terribly critical, just don't use caps with a lower voltage rating. I actually just replaced them with a pair of 100 microfarad 50 volt caps since it was what I happened to have on hand and the monitor worked fine once repairs were complete.

First of all, please try it on another computer. And let me know the result. This will lessen the troubleshooting task. We'll be able to assume which one, whether the monitor or the Display card is the cause. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Just got a new computer DELL Studio...hooked it to my existing monitor (big W3000 / DELL)when i leave the office & it times out....i come back in & i move the mouse but the computer does'nt cpme...


Tom, try connecting a KNOWN GOOD monitor to your PC. If it works fine for 2 hrs and will recover from "time-out" then I would think that the monitor is having a problem with it's backlighting system. Have you had any problem with black screen while doing constant keyboard and mouse movement? Try adjusting time-out settings under "Control Panel" then "Display" then "Power" and select not to turn off monitor. See if that fixes the problem. 12fixlouie

ViewSonic 19" flat screen monitor goes black - intermittently


Hi,
There could be a problem with your display card settings or the display card itself. If you are using Windows operating system, make sure that you have the monitor driver installed for that specific monitor. This is to ensure that Windows only allows settings for which your particular monitor was designed.
Let me know if I can assist you any further regarding this.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Need new power cord


Elizabeth, I poked around last night but couldn?t find an absolute answer to your question so I didn?t post an answer. Since no one else has answered it I?ll share my best guess. Your monitor probably uses a standard 110v power cable. Take a look at your power socket on the monitor and compare it to this picture on Ebay and chances are good the socket end will match your monitor. http://cgi.ebay.com/Computer-power-cords-110V-10A-IEC-C-13-lot-of-10_W0QQitemZ190083846330QQihZ009QQcategoryZ45342QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Your video cable may be a little trickier. Assuming your monitor and your computer video card both have standard 15 pin VGA sockets (?D? shaped connector about 1? long with three rows of little holes) this cable listed on Ebay or one like it will work for you. http://cgi.ebay.com/6FT-VGA-SVGA-COMPUTER-MONITOR-CABLE-HIGH-QUALITY-LCD_W0QQitemZ280083462294QQihZ018QQcategoryZ41999QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem If these don?t match the connector ends on your monitor let us know, and as always please don?t forget to rate this posting.
