Question about Samsung SyncMaster 913V 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Image not displaying properly

I know this is an old monitor now, but my Samsung SyncMaster 913v TFT monitor always had this problem since I got it (off a friend, not retail). When set to it's native 1280x1024 resolution, the image would be larger than the screen. E.g. the icons on desktop would be 'going off the screen'. This is especially annoying when playing games because I cannot see the edges of screen, missing out on information such as gold count etc.
I have downloaded the driver from Samsung's website to no avail, anyone know how to fix this?

    Attached the monitor to a laptop, still no good. Guess I'll just have to put up with it

    Hey guys sorry for not replying, must've lost the notification email somehow until now.

    I did try to install drivers on both my PC and laptop, but still the monitor does the same thing. Guess it's a faulty unit, I did get it free so I'm not too fussed. Both laptop and desktop computers display fine on on other monitors, so I doubt it's the graphics cards.

    Thanks for the help anyway, glad there are people out there helping us noobs out in time of need

    Cheers

Did you install the drivers for it? the drivers instruct the video card on how to properly 'talk' to the monitor. My parents' have a wide-screen monitor that does 1400x900 native. Before installing the proper drivers it would go beyond the edges and have distorted icons.

    jerry raises a good point. A computer I recently built included an integrated video chip that could not support certain aspects.Older cards and integrated chips simply didn't exist when some of the more odd, especially anything that's 16:10 (1680x1050), aspect ratios were introduced.

Before assuming it's the monitor, try it on another display card.

It is possible that there is a problem in the configuration of the display card, or a defect in the display card.

Is there a computer service place, or a monitor sevice center near to where you live. You can then take the monitor to have it properly checked for you.

Samsung syncmaster 913v gives message ' not optimum mode"


The 913V has a native resolution of 1280x1024. If you use a higher resolution than that, you'll get slightly blurry text. If you use a lower resolution, then images will be slightly choppy around the edges.

To get rid of the message, set your resolution to 1280x1024.

In Windows XP, you do this by right-clicking on the background (desktop) and selecting "Properties" to bring up the display properties.
Select the tab marked "Settings" and look for a "Screen Resolution" slider. Move that slider to the right until it displays "1280x1024" and hit "OK"

Samsung lcd 913v self test ok, no image when vga connected


This problem often occurs in samsung SyncMaster LCD monitors.

The solution is open your look for the LCD monitor power supply module (which have PCB connector to the AC power), on that board look for capacitors, now look for broken one which upper part is bloated, like the image below:

If you find a damaged capacitor as in the picture then you should replace it with the same value.

Samsung SyncMaster 913V it's displaying red lines


Sometimes this happens when the pins on the vga connector are bent. You can either try to straighten them (very carefully with tweezers) - be sure to check both ends, or try a new cable.

Syncmaster 913v color problem


Appears to be something in the connection. Check the video cable and pins on the video connector. Also verify the color settings have not been changed on the monitor. There should be an area where you change the RGB levels.
