Ok. as stated in chat, here is the button sequence that will reset your monitor to default. if this doesn't work, then your menu button is either jammed or broken and will continue to pop the message up. at that point it will need to be repaired of replaced.I have a SyncMaster  - 13f16c4.jpg

    Sorry, the chat window froze up on me before I could finish with you, but we were nearly done. If the reset doesn't work, you can take the extra step of taking the cover off and checking to see if you can free the button. Other than that, you may just have a broken button that needs to be replaced.

    How can this possibly be innapropriate? I was giving you the information I was attempting to pass on to you when our chat session froze up.

    Please reconsider. I understand if you don't rate my post, since we dealt with this in chat, but placing an innapropriate on me damages my rating for no purpose. please reconsider

I have a samsung SyncMaster 2233 monitor.. the black colour on the monitor doesnt seem sharp enough.. i mean black is not exactly deep black everywhere, there are some places on the monitor that show some...

I see this monitor was produced in 2008. I guess you purchased it used. As used monitors cost any where from $10 and up I'd just replace it. It just isn't worth saving.

If you know how to open it up and get to the power supply you will find three capacitors 2-820uf and 1-330 @ 25vdc 105o.they will have puffed up tops replace them. FYI the monitor has a 3 year warranty.

Re Samsung Monitor

TFT means Thin Film Trangister. You are using LCD (liquid crystal dispaly) this means in lcd monitor use trangister on/off to create a pixel. you should give your monitor to repair at workshop for this problem. i don't know any workshop which located in your city. and about the expence it's all around rs 600 to 1000.

Noise and popping sounds

But the important question is really,does it have a good beat ?

Sorry couldn't resist.
Chances are you just have a few bad capacitors on the power supply board. Any TV repair shop should be able to take care of this quickly and reasonably cheaply. Best bet is to make a few calls to local shops first though for a rough quote, and also to make sure they do service LCD monitors there, not all do.

Hope that helps.
