Question about Samsung 204T 20" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I turned off my pc, with no problems, and when I turned it back on again, the monitor is displaying a strange problem. The blacks no longer exist, and the colors are washed out,slightly staticky, and mildly inverted. I didn't drop it or spill water on it or anything. The only thing I did was move my pc to the other side of the room. I've tried rebooting, unplugging and plugging back in.. Please help!

    I did. and even when the cable is unplugged entirely, instead of going black with the "no input" message, it shows a washed out greenish white.

Check that the video cable is seated properly and secured to the port with the screws.

Hi guys! Im having problem with my Dell monitor. When i turn on my computer it will load but my monitor just display 2-3 seconds and it will turn black again..the power light is working when i turn off and...


This is a problem with the CCFL bulb (the back light) or the inverter that powers it. This bulb is inside the lcd pannle and requires great care to replace. Some local PC Repair shops will be able to fix it however most will not. The inverter which is (most likely) the problem can be found on ebay for $20-30 USD and is easily replaceable it is general a small curcit board below the lcd pannle hidden in the bevel. However same times the board is merged into a much larger board which will be tricky to replace as it is specific to the monitor.

Hi,
This is definitely a display issue ,going black could be the inverter or cable, as you are getting vertical line, it seems you need to change the display.It seems the heat produced by the video card in your system is too high if the cooling is not enough it might give you this problem due to over heating. Maximum GPU Temperature (in C) 105 C for nvida GEFORCE GT 120M.

The screen resolution for your laptop is WXGA++(1600 x 900) which is 17",for this kind of display I would say display nothing less than 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 is high defination (HD) display.

The GRAPHICS card you have in the system it has

  • Maximum Digital Resolution 2560x1600
  • Maximum VGA Resolution 2048x1536
  • Maximum GPU Temperature (in C) 105 C
  • Maximum Graphics Card Power (W) 50 W
Try to decrease the hardware acceleration of the video card and check how it works.Other wise replace the display.

You might need to change the screen refresh rate. Go do Control Panel> Display> Setting> Advance, choose 60 Hz. In order to make your Monitor able to display, restart the PC, press F8 on the keyboard frequently upon splashing ( 1 or 2 seconds after PC restarts). Select enable VGA mode by pressing up arrow of the keyboard> press enter. The display should look bigger, then you can start adjusting the screen refresh rate to 60 Hz

Monitor displays the PC screen but switches off within 10 second


Unfortunatley your monitor is going out. I just had that problem. My sceen would come on, but after about 10min. it would blink off and turn black. I would have to hit the off button on the monitor, then turn it back on. It would work fine for a few minutes then black out again. I got a new/used monitor where I no longer have that problem.

I did check to make sure my hybernate was not activated, it wasn't, I had it set to never turn off.

Good luck.

Monitor does not display picture,only the mouse pointer


If you're seeing only the mouse pointer it means there is likely a problem with your hard drive. Perhaps windows has a bad file. Has anything changed recently? Any new programs? A short? a strange smell?

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..

My FN+F6 doesnt keep my screen on the laptop open


Change the settings from the display settings panel. (Right click on the desktop and go to display settings)
You should see 2 monitors graphically represented there. 
You can make the monitor that is greyed out active by right clicking on the monitor, and selecting active.

they normally turn off like this when they aren't receiving a video signal from the pc (same as when you turn off the pc). make sure that it is connected properly, and that the video output is activated. try disconnecting from the other monitor while its on and connect the problem monitor...if it still isn't working then there may be a problem with the cable or the monitor itself. Try another VGA or DVI cable. Hope this helps

245BW monitor not working (stranges colors ad aeternam...)


I had the same problems as almost all of these people and the answer seems to be that I uninstall the current Nvidia Drivers and use a previous set. The 169.28 were a real problem for me. Just when I thought it was working I would get the strange wash out and I could not turn it off except with the back power switch, aslo using the DVI turns off all the on screen controls.

Good Luck
