When small square appears in the upper left hand

Ahaa, Beth... Yours is a older and tired puppy. You already know it's only 17" so "details" are SO easy to miss... even WHEN it's working! (I will whisper to you that it MAY be your power supply failing?) (*whispers) ... eBay 232038053660 $11.99 USA seller) Soooo... since money IS a issue (for most of us)... consider this: Go to GOOGLE and search for: "Craigslist North Carolina" Find the city nearest to you and HUNT ~ and HUNT for the best used 21" (or so) monitor you can afford. OF COURSE you will INSIST that they "demo" monitor BEFORE you pass the bux. WHY invest in repairs or diagnostics for a broken monitor your TECH may not be able to get parts for?? IF it can be repaired, at what price for labor+parts and WHAT will fail again? Beth, I found a past FIXYA Link that HAS your manual WITH a "Troubleshooting" section! The other Link describes problems others have had with your same model... So there you have it! FILM at 11:00! Anthony

Have a Samsung SyncMaster 731B (Black) 17 inch LCD

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

Samsung Synchmaster731b monitor stuck

Well, I have few questions. What if you unplug the monitor from the computer and turn it On? Have you tried the monitor on another system? Have you tried with another monitor on the System?
Things you can try: 1. Reseat the Ram/s and make sure they are properly/securely seated.
2. If you have video card installed on your computer, reseat the video card.
3. Reset the Bios, you can do this by removing the system battery on the motherboard or enter the Bios settings and restore it to "Default.."
Please post back with more details if nothing seems helpful.
Good Luck.

Try removing signal cable and refitting at both ends.

Screen comes on during startup for only a second

That issue is normally caused by the backlight in the LCD. The compact florescent light in the display is burning out. They will normally light for a few seconds when first powered on, then shutoff.
Ultimately, the bulb needs to be replaced. If your into hacking electronics, you can get a replacement bulb online and DIY. Otherwise, the cost of having it repaired is usually very close if not more than a new monitor.

My Samsung 731BF Monitor has recently started

The problem is most likely the backlight or the power supply that feeds the backlight. The bulb will be the most common problem and will likely require replacement. For the cost of replacing the bulb, you would be better of replacing the monitor.
Just keep doing your power reset technique and use it till it dies.
