    I have the same issue. I've plugged in a 1GB SD card to the appropriate slot, and I already have the USB connection in place and working with a 2GB USB flash drive and an external USB hard drive. The SD card worked on my PC at home but it's not working with my monitor. Any suggestions?

Transfer pictures from sd card to files

First the pictures stored on your SD card are already files. There are many file types for graphic images I'm guessing you want to transfer the files on the SD card to your computer so you can work on them with Photoshop or other Photo Editor or maybe just print out hardcopy pictures. You will need a computer that comes equipped with a SD card reader slot. Then all you do is plug the card into the slot and the computer will treat it like another hard drive device and will assign a drive letter to it like E: or in my case J: At this point you can drag and drop the files on the SD card to folders on you PC. If you don't have a SD card reader slot then you will have to resort to other methods. Most modern digital cameras come with a special cable and proprietary software that will allow you to plug your camera directly into your PC through a USB port. My Canon SX 500 allows me to do this. This way you can transfer the pictures without having to remove the SD card from the camera.

Card reader is not reading the card

Thats a slightly difficult problem. Have you tried the card on another reader? Just to eliminate the possibility that the card is not good. If it works on another reader the card reader you have may be bad or somehow got disconnected.

Monitor not connecting to tower. it is plug in to the tower. but shows that it is not connected.

three things can be the issue here:

1. No signal from the tower (VIDEO CARD)
2. Bad cable or bent pin on the d-sub 9-15 pin vga connector.
3. Bad signal board inside the monitor itself.

Things to try:

1. another computer.
2. check the signal cable for bent pins.
3. check the video card in the tower.

Before you "think its a bad monitor" you always want to assume the computer first as computers are 9 times out of 10 why the monitor is not coming on such as BIOS errors, Bad video card, bad power supply etc etc.

Digital frame do not show pictures from memory card. It was working good then stack on one pikture then stoped.

My thought is to remove some of the pictures from the Card or the one you put on and see if it starts working again!

Screen goes blank on 933SN monitors after it is on for short whil

I have not yet solved the problem. They are brand new monitors. Don´t see why I should need to pay to get them to work. I have worked with computers for years and years. Never before saw a monitor that didn´t work when it was new unless of course it was defective. Not your porblem I realize. I need Samsung to help me or stand behind it.
Thanks so much,

Monitor is missing pins?

If the monitor is working correctly, there is no problem. Not all 15 pins are used, therefore there is usually two missing.

The Contrast screen pops on all the time

It looks like your UP button contact is demaged.
SOLUTION is to insert a piece from your business card mostly above the button to adjust it down or up. It works fine.

Horizontal lines on my monitor

I have a similar problem with a 2 year old Samsung monitor. I have tried to make a screen dump of it, but the horizontal lines do not show up then. This I have read indicates that the problem is in the monitor and not the video card.
