Just got a Samsung 906BW 19" monitor for Father's Day.
Only problem is that some of the black lettering has a red or green tinge to it. My graphics card is a 128MB DDR Nvidia GE Force FX 5200. My computer is a Dell 4600 Pent.4 2.4 GHZ and 512MB Ram.
How can I get rid of this?

Re: black lettering has red or green highlights
Try turning on cleartype if you are using Windows XP.
1. Right click on the desktop and select 'Properties'
2. Select the 'Appearance' tab and press the 'Effects?' button
3. Check the box for 'Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts', then select 'ClearType' in the dropdown list
4. Close the Effects dialog by clicking 'OK' and click 'Apply' to complete the process

Try it on another PC first. If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on: Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague http://www.badcaps.net Capacitors kit: http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/
This seems to happen to a lot of then Either the Inverter Board is bad or the power supply board is bad. Good luck getting it fixed. Samsung seems not to even think they made them.
I emailed all over trying to get mine fixed with no luck. Do you mean the 7 day of recording,this will record til the day you turned it off YES!! even with the screen black it records DO THIS!!!
First... On the back of the monitor look for VIDEO OUT Its down near the Camera wires
Do you have a set of VIDEO and AUDIO cables there red, white,&yellow????
Get a 19'' tv with video and audio INPUTs NOW!! with the RED cable hook it to the Monitor Video out and the other red end to the tv Video in Just the RED ONE don't worry about white or yellow.
NOW turn the Security Monitor ON , NOW the TV let them warm up The tv must be in Video1 or
Video 2 ---NOW YOU SHOULD SEE THE CAMERA's or the screen POINT the remote at the monitor to do things like menu, search. Sorry I'm not to good at explaining things THIS Should work GOOD LUCK
rommelnmariv, 906BW will need to use warranty or if you are not a tech with soldering equiptment then unit will need to visit a tech to be evaluated for it's Black screen or It's Blank n Black screen problem. Read my older fixya responses (late 2009) and follow all links. Yes, some of these can be fixed-up (DIY) for under $10. Read my fixya profile for about an hour !!! Maybe you will ask your 906BW " What Brand of capacitors do you have inside you??" Bye for now. 12fixlouie
This is 2007 monitor, time to look for bad caps in the power supply first, the problem acn also be in the inverter circuits, or bad lamps. Open it up and post back so we can guide you further, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
