(Couldn't find the monitor in the product section so i chose the earlier model.) I just got a 2232bw Samsung monitor and went to go set it up. When it came time to put in the DVI Cable, it would not go in. It goes in on one side but the other side has just doesn't fit. When looking at the jack in the monitor, there are cutlike things where the red is that look like it is off center. It will plug right into the computer. Do i need a new monitor or is it fixable

This happened with my 2232bw also. The problem was that the 5 820uF capacitors that had burnt out so I replaced them with 5 1000uF capacitors and it's now working like a dream. Hope This Helps Slick2160
toolman6872, Didn't you visit YOUTUBE and see some video clips about "lcd monitor disassembly" and or "lcd monitor repair" ? Let me know if you don't find some info there or at www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm Also try using very, very DULL butter knife, not screwdrivers. If you found this helpful, rate it on fixya! 12fixlouie
Sounds like you may have had a power surge.??
Disconnect power and signal input.
Turn the unit off for 20 minutes or so. Check the outlet against another device. ( Light )
Turn unit on without connection to PC video.
If you get a no signal, you good to go . Reconnect. If you continue to get a flashing light on power button,
Check warranty, get it back to Samsung for repair.
Hope this has helped
firstly you check this monitor to another pc. it the same problem accure then
i thinks this problem due to falure of power supply or dead of flurocent tube. or any the vga cable is faulty.
There is nothing broken, but you must become aware of the different standards in DVI connectors.
1)DVI-D which you have, does not have the 4 analog control pins around the alpha bar meaning it only works on digital devices.
2)DVI-A only has the 4 control pins and no bar, as well as a total of only 9-10 pins altogether. This is designed for analog only, and rarely see it anymore.
3)DVI-I stands for Interlaced, meaning it can work both ways, but will not fit in monitors that are set up for DVI-D because the analog pin sockets do not exist.
You can get more detailed by counting the pins in the rectangular area, if you use all 24 pins you have what is called a Dual-Link cable, so it can support resolutions over 1920x1280 if you have about 9 pins missing it is single-link and is limited resolution.
Please do not adjust RGB unless you know what you are doing. For critical color work, you will need to use a photospectrometer and calibration software to analyze what your monitor is spitting out. There are a million obvious reasons you should not trust your eye making arbitrary RGB adjustments off the hip.
