Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 910MP 19" LCD Monitor ?

Switching between sources on a Samsung SyncMaster 2033

\015 I have both a PC and a DVD player connected to a Samsung SyncMaster 2033 monitor (through VGA and DVI, respectively). How do I switch between sources on the monitor?I'm sure this is a stupid question, but I bought an open-box monitor because I desperately needed a replacement, and it didn't come with a manual.\015

Answers :

A computer monitor is not truly designed for the purpose you have in mind
\015\012As far as the VGA connector is concerned it is still meant for connection to a COMPUTER
\015\012The same for the HDMI.
\015\012We are seeing this problem more and more as people look at the price rather than its intended use.
\015\012A TV is a TV.
\015\012Yes you can hook up some external components as you have done but the only way i have seen it work is by the following and is not 100% guaranteed to work in all situations.
\015\012Turn off the device you no longer wish to watch using the remote
\015\012Turn off the monitor
\015\012Turn on the device you wish to watch using its remote
\015\012Turn on the monitor.
\015\012The only reason that method works at all is that some monitors auto detect which input actually has a signal on it.
\015\012You can buy switching boxes also if you don't mind adding to the amount of cables etc. Remote switches may cost quite a bit more than a manual one.
\015\012This is the ONLY answer I can give you. Your monitor does not have a remote and the reason for that is that it is not a TV.

It would be very decent of you to consider the quality of our experts answers and judge them accordingly as you pass through FIXYA.
Thank you
It does not come with a manual even when you buy this monitor completely new. There is a CD that supposedly contains a manual but the CD would not work on any of the computers in our house. The Quick Start Guide was all over the place too. This was the first ever Samsung hardware I bought. I returned it and have never bought Samsung again.

My Samsung SyncMaster 2463UW no longer auto detects the video input. I normally use it with my MacBook Pro - I turn it on, it detects the digital output and Bob's your uncle. Today, I turned it on and it continues to cycle through analog, digital and HDMI input sources. However, I can actually see the correct output when it switches to ''digital'' mode - it just won't stay there.
