Question about Samsung Syncmaster 730B 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I am writing to ask for help regarding my parents' computer monitor. Unfortunately, they arent very familiar (confident) with computers, so I am trying to help them with their problem. I have been away out of the country for several years and also not too familiar with the new LCD monitors, flat screen, etc. They have always left the computer on. To be honest, I dont know if that is a good thing or bad thing nowadays. They have had the monitor for around 2 years now. So, you can assume that the computer has nearly always been on, even though it is used very little. Anyway, to get to the problem, I have told them (again I am not very familiar with these kind of monitors) that maybe they should be turning their monitor off every once in a while. So they have started doing this. We have noticed that the monitor is having problems rebooting when we turn it back on. It starts making weird noises (kind of like a squeeking noise) and the picture is just barely seen on the monitor (the screen is very dark). It continues making the weird squeeking noises for around an hour and finally makes kind of like a rebooting noise and the regular screen (as it should be) comes on. Other than rebooting the monitor after turning it back on, they have had zero problems with the computer. I have been researching on this trying to study up on LCD monitors the past several days and have found that it is recommended to go with a "blank screen" screensaver and to put the option of turning off the monitor automatically after a several hours of inactivity. I dont know understand, however, why the monitor has trouble rebooting after being turned off for several hours, though. Maybe it is normal? or the monitor should be treated in another form? If you can help at all with this problem, I would appreciate it. Thank you!
Mcdevito75 here LCD, or liquid Crystal display, chances are the crackling is the inside liquid display trying to capture the in comming electricity to make a display picture. Remember even an LCD is nothing more than a light bulb, a very intricate light bulb but a light bulb, and you have light bulbs burn out when you put them on and almost never as the are on burning. Turning the monitor itself off won"t really save electricity or the monitor itself as, when you shut down the computer from Start (left side of screen) the monitors screen saver comes on for 10--20 minutes then goes off, at this point the electricity is at the monitors on/off switch and not going thru the monitor at all. If you turn the monitor off at it"s on/off switch, the sudden jump of electricity to the monitor from it"s on/off switch could hurt it, or even the switch. I have a friend who turns off the monitor also and that friend had a bad monitor in 3 years. I never turn my monitor off just the computer itself. I'd speak with a Radio Shack, Staples, Best Buy ETC. for more advise. Me I;d say leave the monitor on. Hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
Turn on your NintendoWii and enter the Settings Menu.
Click on ParentalControls.
It will ask you foryour Pin Number but just click "I Forgot".
Now it will ask youfor the answer to a security question, just click "I Forgot" once again.
You will now see aconfirmation code on the screen, this is what you should give to Nintendo whenyou phoneup. But we arenot going to do that.
Head over to: http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp
Enter the confirmationcode which the Wii is showing into the box on the site.
Make sure the date isright and click "Get Reset Code".
You should now have an unlock code to enter in the Wii.
