Monitor Not switching ON after booting

By ssundip ·
Hi, I am facing strange problem with my samsung 17' inch syncmaster montior all of a sudden. Whenever i switch my computer on the monitor doesnt switch on, it switches on only after pressing the monitor button(on/off) many times. Sometimes it switches on after pressing it 2 times, sometimes it takes 10 times.It happens even if i turn off the monitor & try to turn it On after sometime. I checked by connecting my monitor to different machine, but the same problem occured. What might be the problem?? Please help.

Some checks

by NickNielsen In reply to Monitor Not switching ON ...

It's possible there is some corrosion in signal contacts. Disconnect the signal cable from your monitor, re-connect it and see if that helps.

If that doesn't help, your monitor is failing and will need to be replaced soon.

I agree

Check both ends of the cable (if it can be disconnected from the monitor end) and check for bent, broken or corroded pins. If your lucky it might be the cable - do you have a spare? If that's not it, and the unit is not under warranty, say goodbye and get a new one.

Bad pins can be fixed

if you can get a replacement monitor cable. If a new monitor cable does not fix the original problem, you will have to replace your monitor.
