Question about Samsung SyncMaster 216BW Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor works fine until the power goes out, or the standby button is pushed rather than the power off button when closing down Windows XP. I do have the computer and monitor on a Working APC Battery back-up...but wonder if a bit of electrical glitch is still triggering something in the monitor. I have tried unplugging everything...leaving it for a while and then plugging it back in and the monitor still won't come on. BUT...24 hours later, the monitor will pop back on, all by itself. I have checked to see if any of the Energy savings in the computer could be doing this, but don't see anything either. This is the 3rd time in a year that this monitor has done this. I hate having to wait a whole day for it to come back on. I can't find a reset button for the monitor either...and I would think totally unplugging it from the computer and the power would do that??? Any help/suggestions would be welcomed.

Monitor goes into power saving mode while working with xp operating system


Probably not a problem with the monitor but rather the power settings for windows. right click on the desktop and go down to properties select the screensaver tab and click the power settings button. Under here you can change the settings for when the monitor shuts down. Personally I would select never.

How do i get out of hibernate mode and get into standby


To get the computer back up again and out of hibernation you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.


Also the following may be of interest.
You must be logged on as an administrator or member of either the Administrators or Power Users group in order to successfully complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, the forced network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure. In this case please consult your Network Administrator.
  1. Click Start, then Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box.
    If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. Click Start, and then click Shut Down then select Hibernate.
    If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional with Fast User Switching turned on, the Shut Down menu will present the options to Stand By, Turn Off, or Restart your computer. Hold down the Shift key, and the Stand By button will change to Hibernate.

Relisys TL766 monitor. OSD menu continually open, wont close. Standby button doesnt always function.


Here is a definite solution to all those having problems with OCS menu on Relisys TL 766 Monitor.
Having tried many of the posted solutions none of which worked. The only option was to visit my local PC repair shop who disconnected the OCD monitor for UK £15.00. Spare parts for this model are no longer available. Only down side was the power indicator light in middle of now redundant control buttons does not work. Otherwise a monitor works perfectly. NO MORE STRESS.

No Signal when desktop wants to load


It does not hate that monitor. I believe the problem is in the settings on your video. Your monitor cannot display them. You will most likely need to start your computer in safe mode and change the display settings on your video card or, alternatively, download updated video drivers. Also, if you can't get Windows to start in normal or safe mode, one of the options you get when you press F8 on startup is to start in VGA mode. That will get you in so you can tweak your settings, which are probably set to a resolution too high for your monitor.

Monitor will not turn on

Solution: Replace cap. Radio Shack sells a 1000uF, 35Vcap for $2. This will work.

Why did the cap gobad? The cap is too close to a heatsink and over heated.

What does this capdo? This cap sends a signal to an ICwhich keeps the monitor 'on' after the power switch is pushed. When the cap is weak, AC ripple voltage isapplied to the IC and it sends a signal to shut the monitor off.

Opening the Monitor:These monitors are difficult to open.

The two plastic pieces snap together and must be pried apartwith a flat screw driver.

After removing the stand, you need to insert a flat screwdriver at the bottom of the screen where two slots are located. Then work the screwdriver around until the two plastic pieces are separated.

Remove the cover plate and unscrew the push button circuitboard.

Unplug the monitor cords from the driver board and removethe screen.

Unscrew the mounting screws from the power supply board andremove.

You will need to pinch the plastic support in the middle ofthe board to remove.

Cap Replacement:

Cap is located near a copper heat sink and the value will beon the side of the cap. It will be bulged up on the top. You will see burnmarks on the board surrounding the cap. Unsolder the cap.

Install the new cap and solder. Make sure you connect + ofthe cap to + marked on the board.

Be careful not to solder across joints.

Keep leads long so you can bend the cap as far away from theheat sink as possible.

Reassemble monitor and turn on.

This should solve the problem.

Will not close down


These monitors go into a standby just incase you are only restarting the PC.
To turn it off properly, hit the power button on the monitor before Windows has completely turned the computer off.

IE: tell Windows to shutdown, when you see the blue screen telling you Windows is shutting down, turn it off then.

Hope that helps

Monitor goes standby after boot


Look the problem it may not your monitor it's your windows XP. Let me guess you have a VGA/Svideo card. From prior experience I can tell you that dual output Nvidia cards will default to Svideo first, and then "adjust" your windows settings to do so every time even if a VGA monitor is re-connected (HIGHLY ANNOYING). So if the last thing you see before nothing is the Windows XP boot screen, here's how to fix it. Boot to safe mode uninstall your video driver, reboot then reinstall. You can substitute a system restore for uninstalling your drivers if you can remember when the monitor was last working. This really really pissed me off when it happened to me.
