Smeared image I have a Samsung SyncMaster 731B and the image on the screen looks smeared from left to right. Anything that is on the screen has a smeared effect pushing toward the right. Any suggestions?

    Same here. Just noticed it about a week or so ago. Tried adjusting the controls at the bottom of the screen, but so far no luck. Hope someone knows the answer. Otherwise, it's a great monitor!

Try removing signal cable and refitting at both ends.
Signal cable also could be faulty.

    I didn't really think that would work, but it did! Both sides were firmly in place, no sign of problems. I pulled them out, put them back on and tightened everything up. Problem has disappeared. Thank you!

And me too! SyncMaster 940BW. Was fine on Saturday then on Sunday all of a sudden everything is 'streaked' and 'smeared' over to the right. It's awful! Will do what Samir suggests and also check to see if the dirvers need updating.

Have a Samsung SyncMaster 731B (Black) 17 inch LCD Monitor. The screen is black other than a very very very faint glow of the box when pushing the setting and menu buttons. Any ideas?


Might be a case of the backlight giving up. If this is the case, you have two options, replace the backlight (expensive and pretty difficult to do a good job of) or replace the whole thing. I'd go with the second option, as LCD monitors are pretty cheap at the moment! Stick with Samsung SyncMasters though, they do good price monitors that are reasonably reliable too. Either that or a Dell monitor.

Thanks

My samsung syncmaster 731b monitor screen turns off when i start up my system. I have to turn it on and off several times to get it to stay on .Do i need a new monitor. Harold


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Samsung syncmaster 914v monitor problem. right side of display is darker image. can see dots like a newspaper print or looking through a screen. when display is black it almost appears like an image is...


This is likely the LCD panel itself - you are describing a left/right image error that can be only created by the left/right division by the LCD driver wrapped around the outside of the LCD panel.
If your monitor uses a separate circuit board to drive the LCD, it could be this driver board.
Either way, it will require an LCD panel - $$$

Well in monitor you can do one thing - disconnect the monitor cable*(VGA Cable) from the tower and chk still if u have the same faint screen that means monitor gone bad if not than uninstall the Grapics Driver and shut down computer... if u have internet than restart and go to device manager ( Run - devmgmt.msc) under display adapter right click on grapics name and update driver.
