Question about Samsung SyncMaster 912N 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen blanks out after aqbout 50 minutes to a little over an hour

Screen blanks out. but the computer is still operating correctly. Or if I do a restart it will not come up to desk top. bvut gives me a black screen. I have to turn off for about half an hour or a little more for it to come back up.
If i turn off the computer. the dos screen comes up the windowsXP comes up then i get a gray screen for a moment and then it goes black.So I have to turn it off and wait for half an hour and it comes up like normal.
On a restart if I leave the computer come all the way up I can hear the computer to on line in the speaker. I have taken hooked the computer up to another monitor and it restarts fine every time. Left it on for over an hour on the other monitor and it worked fine. So it has to be the monitor or the driver. when I disconnect the monitor with power on i get the ICON indicating that the monitor is alright.

Please advice.

Thank you,

Paul Reece

Asus Monitor boes blank and comes back after power recycle

1. You can see images on the screen for a few minutes. That means there is nothing wrong with your computer.

2. When your screen goes blank, if you disconnect and then reconnect the monitor, it shows fine again for a few minutes before going blank (or dim) again. That means the problem is not with you video card.

3. It always shows the image after reconnection for exactly a few minutes before going blank again. yes? this means that there is nothing wrong with your cable.

Conclusion: Sorry, but you do not have many options. I bleieve that the problem is with your monitor that's going bad. Its far cheaper to get it replaced than to repair it.

Multisync LCD 1700V turns on then screen goes blank and shuts off

Does the power light stay on? If so, you have an inverter problem. If the power light goes off, you have a power supply problem.

My screen only displays after 4 /5 hrs

Try a different screensaver.

Also look in the display properties by simply right clicking the desktop and clicking properties.

Then locate power management.

the initial seems to be a bad screensaver judging by the 20 minutes, but the 4-5 hours seems to be a sleep mode that bypasses the screensaver issue.

Screen whites out on boot up

try this test: put your PC into hibernate mode after the event of ..."After about an hour in this state, the screen will, after a further power on and off, resume normal operation. Functions perfectly...". Then force a hibernate state (START-SHUT DOWN-hold shift while hover STANDBY). Now, while in hibernate state, force a "resume Windows" state (space-bar on my PC). Any change on display to note? Hoping you answer yes, it is better now. If so, then continue with hibernate mode.
