Question about Samsung SyncMaster 940BE 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen goes black and have to restart

Hi, my Syncmaster 940B will just go black without a reason at different times of usage and the screen will show analog/dialog messages changing every few seconds in the left hand side corner. The power light stays on, but I have to restart my computer to see anything again. Sometimes this will occur every few minuts, other times it will be fine for hours. Thank you for any help I receive.

Looks like you have a DRY SOLDER or COLD solder , if your handy with tools , you have to open monitor and check the PC BOARD, specially where some transformer is located look around that area for some burnt spot , re solder it , and try it again , should be working properly , hope this helps AJ

It seems from the begining you have had nothing but trouble, if under warranty return the item, because it will eventually fail, it is a matter of probability.

Shine a flash light onto the monitor, if you can see icons/desktopon the screen then you know you need a new monitor!

Samsung Syncmaster913v Monitor. The screen is totally black, but when I remove lead from computer it shows "Check Signal Cable" in colour. Also when I press Menu, in top left hand corner...


If the color still works, and it works on other computers, there is something wrong with the computer in question. But this is not the case, so logically, something is wrong with the monitor. Check the cable for broken pins.

I have a samsung syncmaster 943NW which goes on for about 5 seconds and then just goes black. When restarting the screen it does the same again, goes on for about 5 seconds and then black. Is there...


I had the same problem with this monitor (Samsung 943nw)
When turned on it would only stay on for less then a full second.
When shining a light on the screen I could see what was on it, so it was just the backlight that was shutting down.

After I turned down the brightness of the monitor, the next time I powered on the screen the backlight stayed lit and it was back to normal.

My samsung syncmaster 920nw picuture goes blank after a period of a couple of minutes. If I turn the power off and then back on the picture re-appears but goes off again. It is not he pc since it works...


If you get a flashing screen which show your screen for few minutes and then goes blank it may be an issue with the Monitor.

Try to restart the computer and go to BIOS setup screen. If you experience the same issue in BIOS then the monitor needs a repair or replacement for sure.

Sounds like you have a video card problem. If it works on someone elses PC and not yours. Replacing this video card on your PC should fix it..

Samsung SyncMaster 17" LCD Blacks out


If you have a second monitor, you could use your computer until the monitor goes black... then plug in a replacement monitor. My guess is that one will display black too...

My gut feeling is that your VGA card is on the fritz... I'm not convinced it's your monitor. Do you have a replacement VGA card you can try? I'll bet that'll take care of the problem.
