My monitor hates me :(
« on: May 28, 2009, 08:43:14 am »
I have a samsung 971P 19" monitor it is very nice but about a month ago it started having spazez at me when i started it up and i know that it wasnt the computer. what was happeneing was when i turned on the computer and monitor at the same time (which i always did) the monitor would flicker and then go black but still be turned on. I know as a fact that it is the monitor and not my computer or the cables because i changed them both and it still did it. I think that it might be the backlight.


Any help would be nice  :)

If it is the back light, the monitor is scrap.  It simply isn't worth the cost to repair it when comparable screens can be bought for $100 - $200.  http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010190020%201309821317&name=19%22

If it is still under warranty then Samsung should repair or replace it for you.

If it isn't under warranty, I recently bought the 22" version of this monitor for my wife: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009127 and it is a really great bargain for the price of $120 including shipping.  Here's the one I got, it is $40 more than the 19" one:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009145
