Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20.1" LCD Monitor ?

Samsung 204B random blank screen

\015 The troublesome monitor is 1/2 of dual monitor setup. Randomly the (left) monitor abruptly goes blank. Cycle power w/ front panel button restores monitor function immediately, but only for another random interval (2 - 5 minutes, sometimes longer), then screen blanks again. Both inputs (VGA - digital) & computer video channels yield same results (it's not cables or VGA card). Time interval between blanking seems totally random. Other (right) monitor exhibits NONE of these symptoms with either computer output.\015
