What monitor is it?? Does it have software for colour adjustment?

Samsung... | Answered on Feb 02, 2018

Follow these instructions :
  1. Turn on your Samsung monitor (if it isn't already.)

  2. Press the "AUTO" button on your Samsung monitor. This will run the automatic configuration utility. This will look at your current computer settings and adjust your monitor to best match those. This will take a few seconds. If this has calibrated the monitor to meet your needs, you are finished with the process. If it hasn't, continue to Step 3.
  3. Press the "Menu" button on your Samsung computer monitor.
  4. Use the arrows and the "Enter" button on the monitor to highlight and select various settings categories.
  5. Use the "Brightness" menu on your Samsung monitor to adjust how bright or dark you want the image.
  6. Use the "Colors" menu to adjust how prominent certain colors are displayed on your Samsung monitor.
  7. Use the "Contrast" menu to adjust the level of black on your Samsung monitor.
  8. Select "Save and Exit" to save your changes and exit the Samsung monitor's on Screen menu.

REset the screen resolution. I suggest getting the drivers directly from Samsung and then follow thier exact install directions, not plug and play.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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.

This sounds like a blown power supply. Heat buildup in the monitor case causes parts called capacitors to overheat and blow out. If you can solder then you can do the repair yourself. Check out our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm We have pictures of what the blown capacitors look like. Open the back of your monitor and look for the blown caps. Replace all the ones that look like the ones in the pictures and you should be back up and running. The values you need to get are going to be marked on the sides of the ones you take out. Be sure to reinstall the new ones with the polarity stripe going the same direction as the old ones come out. You can order replacement parts from several places on the internet or we can supply them for you. You will need to use high temp caps that will be marked 105c, these are not available from Radio Shack. If you use ones that are not rated correctly then you will have more issues in a month or two. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for $35 plus return shipping.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's the problem. You can confirm that it's the monitor and not your computer or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try. If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old your monitor is and how much you've invested into it, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

Looks like we got disconnected during our chat session. I still think it may be those bulbs. If there was any kind of surge, it could have taken them out. I'm looking for specifics on the lamp though. If I find anything, I'll post it here.
