Question about Samsung SyncMaster 205BW LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I have two Samsung SyncMaster 205BW screens connected to my computer. After about 2 years of working correctly, one of the screens has started showing blue or red colouring only on tones. I swapped the screens over on the connection leads and the same screen continued to malfunction. So it must be the screen which is at fault.

OUR sAMSUNG sYNCMASTER 205BW has a red tint in the background and cannot adjust it out.


The red or pink tint indicates that the back light florescent bulbs are failing. These bulbs are just like the bulbs in home and office lamps just much much smaller. When the reach the end of life the light output turns from pure white to red because the bulbs are not fully turning on. Check the manufacturer date on the back of the monitor, if its less than 3 years then the monitor is still under warranty. If its older than 3 years then its time to get a new monitor because your is about to fail.

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

You have to use the dvi-d cables on both video card in order to get the higher resolutions on both screens. also the nvidia control panel must be set up the right way so that both screens receive the higher resolution.. there should be a selection for panning across both screens, and another for selecting apps on 1 screen and main os on the other. try changing those settings around, more than likely that is the reason that it's going at a lower resolution.

Smasung Syncmaster 205BW Screen keeps recycling on and off I get a quick flash of the computer desktop and then off again. Checked cable connections that it was plugged in right etc nothing helps....


This sounds like you have a bad power supply, it tries to power up the unit but then shuts down. Check our web site at: We have repair guides for many LCD monitors I think the Samsung 204B guide will work for your monitor. If yo don't want to do the repair we do offer a repair service for $35 plus return shipping.

My Syncmaster 205BW monitor has speckles & button's don't work.

Your monitor is defective. The speckles are actually dead pixels and the problems you're experiencing have to do with a defective board. Basically, it's dead, you need to replace it.
