Question about Samsung SyncMaster 931B 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

LCD Monitor went Dark

After minimizing a game, my monitor went dark and the color looks weird. I have restarted my computer - I also did a system restore to the day before. I went into the display properties and i changed the contrast / brightness / gamma and got it to look decent on the desktop, but the game still looks so dark, and the games display settings have never been changed before. They did not change, but i did mess with them, and the game still looked like ****. I don't know what to do now.

    I've had my Samsung Syncmaster 931b about 2 years. Recently it went dark with the computer idling and the screensaver running. Returning to the monitor, I saw clearly that the display was a lot more dark, too dark. I wonder if it might be the hard drive or the os, since I don't know why the monitor itself should suddenly change, unless it's dying . . . .

    The color on the monitor went dark. I have tried to manage the color through settings but it has not improved it much. I have attached it to other PCs to test if it is specific to the current graphics card, but it did not change the color. I have read two other postings which this same problem was observed but I have not seen a solution yet? Any suggestions?

Hi bear2243055

I suggest reinstalling your graphics device drivers and maybe the game as well.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, 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 DELL 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.

Disconnected Data cable from the monitor to the back of the CPU. Do a self test on monitor if u get colors on the monitor it is working fine.
check for loose cables. Try to do factory reset on monitor using buttons on monitor.

Monitor Barely readable and dark but display is correct


We have about 20 of these at work. Four of them went dark, to varying degrees, in the two years they were covered by warrantee, and were sent back to the factory for repairs. Since then, eleven more have gone dark. I finally got around to looking at them a few days ago. I have repaired five so far, and in every case it has been the same cause.
The capacitors on the inverter board are burning out. There are two 470uF, two 1500uF and a 1000uF that are not holding up.
Costs about 4 bucks for replacement parts at digikey; qtys and Part numbers are:
2 PN #493-1561-ND
1 PN #565-1664-ND
2 PN #P13124-ND
It takes about an hour, and minimal skill with a soldering iron to fix.

hi have you checked your PC output? check it with another screen (whichever) and see if the output signal is good if soo check the cable and connections to your LCD check your PC for software configuraitions: 1) TV output 2) good resoulotion 3) media borad is strong enough to handle this LCD if all is good then maybe the TV borad is sending a low voltage/current then the LCD can see good luck
