Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 912N 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

The magicbright screen appears in the left lower corner of the monitor, the checkmarks cycle rapidly through the 4 settings, and the brightness changes rapidly. This started a few weeks ago and is intermittent. What do I do?

Answers :

The magic bright screen should show up once the magic bright button is\015\012pressed on the control panel. The magic bright button (is a sensor) is\015\012very sensitive. Make sure that there are no objects hitting any buttons\015\012on the control panel.
\015\012The control panel uses a sensor behind the smooth \015\012plastic bezel to register when your finger touches a 'button'. Clean the buttons or the sensors using a soft brush.
\015\012Try to power cycle the SyncMaster. Disconnect it from the outlet and\015\012from the computer. Leave it disconnected for about 30 minutes then turn\015\012it back on.
\015\012If you get the same problem, then there's a problem with the sensor and\015\012needs to be serviced. If the SyncMaster is still under the warranty\015\012period, contact the manufacturer for repair.
\015\012Hope this helps and have a great day!
\015\012This issue happens when the inverter in the monitor is broken; it occurs mostly due to filter caps gone bad (capacitors with a bulging on top). It can be that one of the backlights in the monitor is broken. This would result in parts/half the screen being much dimmer than the others/half. LCD Monitors wear in light intensity over time, but when it happened suddenly and is very noticeable, it's probably the inverter that has gone bad. If you have warranty then you can use that and get this fixed. If not, then a complete inverter replacement can be quite expensive and it’s good to buy a new monitor. But if it's due to faulty caps, it's an easy and quick fix for any electro technician, replacement caps are just a couple of bucks. You can contact a authorized local repair shop as it might be a cheap fix.
\015\012Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

My computer shuts down when unatended for a few minutes. This is the second desktop to have the same problem. I have a couple of dell 3100 computers. I had been using one for a while with no problem.

For 3 weeks My Dell 4700C had difficulty starting. It took from 3-6 attempts to start. In the 3rd week the fan began to sound like a plane starting up.
