This monitor is no longer under warranty and I am sure that it can be repaired I just need to know how to do it. It is my first LCD and has performed really well until now.

the manufacture date on the monitor is june 2005 so it is just out of warranty. If the supplier that I purchased it through was still in business I think that I would have been OK but unfortunately these things happen.

Have you tried to boot in safe mode?

by edunayo In reply to Help SOLVED recommended m ...

I'm sure you did. As you know, when in safe mode, windows uses the good-old 640x480 and it is possible that your monitor can handle it. It it can, then you can adjust an "easier" (for the monitor) resolution/frequency.

I hope this helps.

Yep

I tried that. I can get it to display everything up to 1024x768 and nothing above. Unfortunatly as soon as the screen saver or monitor shuts off I get the error. Even disabling the screen saver and monitor shut down doesn't help as around 20 mins later the error message appears. I even tried it using 800x600 on a 4th PC. When the error message is displayed I can't even access the menu on the monitor. The only button that will work is the power switch. I have tried leaving it just turned off with the power button and cable connected but until I physically remove the power cord I still have the error message.

Hi Rob,<br>
The problem you are having in fact a common problem and the cause was a bad MCU IC in the main board and you need to get the main board from samsung distributor.<br>
