Having problems with your Samsung 215TW SyncMaster 21" LCD Monitor ?

Samsung SyncMaster 215tw screen goes black after about 1 sec.

\015 I have a Samsung SyncMaster 215tw that the screen recently went "black" on. If I press any of the buttons on the monitor (menu, pip, etc.), the screen occasionally displays for about 1 second, then goes out again. I checked the connections, but since the menu doesn't even display, I think it is the monitor. Oddly enough, after pressing the menu button, there is a dialogue box that displays and states the monitor tested good, then it quickly disappears. In the event my suspicions are not correct, here are the other things I've done. I've checked the cables to make sure they have not come loose. I didn't swap them out, as they are the only DVI cables I have. I rebooted the computer, and the screen displays for 1 sec when the boot loader displays the options for booting. I've also turned off the monitor via the switch on the back-side and underneath of the monitor where the power plug connects, and I completely removed the power chord also (based on a suggestion I read to another issue someone was having with this monitor). Nothing has worked thus far. My video card has only a DVI connection on it, so I was not able to connect another monitor to the computer to verify it is the monitor, as the 215tw is the only DVI monitor I own.Thanks in advance for your help.\015

I have the same problem its defenitly a problem with the lcd monitor not with the graphics card nor the pc. I hooked up the digital and afterwards the vga connection both had the same result. 1 s perfect screen all visible but than black. pushing the on/off or standby button again shortly 1s the display works than it blanks. Did the same test while connected to a dvd player via the composite video... same problem . Since the previous posts are that old and without a solution I guess there is no hope in getting it fixed.
