Question about Samsung SyncMaster 940MW 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Describe your samsung syncmaster 940mw poor reception Problem: I thought the TV tuner was digital-ready, but I can't pick up hardly any stations with it - the ones I do get are fuzzy. But with the same antenna, my HDTV picks up crystal clear digital channels with the same antenna. Do I need to use one of those digital converter boxes required for older TVs to pick up the new digital channels with my antenna?

Hello,

That is a hell know problem with the 940MW tv/monitors. The power supply has failed because of parts called capacitors have shorted. If you can solder then you should be able to repair your monitor. Here is a link to the repair guide for this issue.

Syncmaster 940 mw says 'digital' on the front but I cannot receive digital tv after the switchover. Do I need a set top box?


Hello,

Yes, You will need a digital decoder box. The tuner in the Samsung 940MW TV does not decode digital signals. The digital input that you are seeing is for the DVI video input on the back that you use when you connect the unit to a DVI port on a computer. Any of the digital decoder boxes from Radio Shack, Walmart or Best Buy type stores will work just fine.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

Do i need a converter box for a samsung syncmaster 940 mw


It depends. What are you using the monitor for? If you want to watch digital TV, you need a digital to analog converter. (It has an NTSC tuner.) Note: the digital to analog converters that were subsidized by the US government coupon only gave SD out.

If you are connecting to a PC, it has DVI-D (21 pin SCART) and VGA connections (15 pin SCART). (An HDMI to DVI cable or adapter would connect to HDMI video cards.) Most other set-top boxes will connect to the component, composite or S-video connectors.

I hope this helps.

No digital reception with HD ready TV.


Someone did not explain to you what HDTV "Ready" means. It means you do not have a ATSC tuner in it to except over the air digital signal. The only way you will get digital reception is either from a HD Cable box with RGB outputs that plug into your RGB inputs, or being on Satellite connecting the same way. Seven years ago manufacturers never made it easy to understand and Salesmen only made it worse. So in short the term HDTV Ready meant it can, with a BOX.

Poor reception on atsc portable tv


an external or outside antenna will improve the amount of stations picked up and maybe a amplified antenna will help
but the boxes they sell seem to do better in reception even with only a rabbit ear antenna.
I use a box on my 32in LCD because the internal tuner just does not get all the channels without having to get up and move the antenna and the outside antenna , well I'm not going to go out there to move it all the time , and the amplified antenna I still have to keep getting up to move the antenna
so in all the box( "zenith","digital stream"are good , have yet to test others) works the best in recieving the digital channels without much worry of the antenna
