Question about Samsung SyncMaster 173P 17" LCD Monitor
After turning off the computer and cleaning out the dust in the CPU, we reconnected everything and now the monitor is giving us the above message. We cannot find our manual. What do we need to do to get the monitor up and running again? We would like to use it in digital mode. Thanks.
This message is pretty standard and translates into: "I'm fine but your cable or video card isn't."
You may have dislodged the video card while cleaning or possibly bent one of the fine pins of the video connector.
Check the seating of the video card, pulling it up slightly and pushing fimly back into the slot (sometimes the contacts aren't contacting) and then the video output connector.
Pull the latter and examine it carefully for bent pins, not missing ones since not all pin positions are used and those may be empty.
