Samsung SyncMaster Monitor Suddenly Goes Blank
by solids22 - 4/25/11 7:12 PM
I've had a Samsung SyncMaster 220WM computer monitor for several years. The monitor is connected to my laptop and it's used as a dual screen set up. I've never had any issues with it until today.
When I went to turn on my computer this morning, the laptop monitor started as usual, however my Samsung monitor turned on for about a second and then went blank. I unplugged the monitor from the computer and tried turning it off and on. It briefly displayed "Digital" and then "Analog" in the upper righthand corner of the screen (again, only for a second or so), then promptly blanked out. The monitor was powered on, but the screen was absolutely blank. None of the buttons at the bottom of the monitor were responsive.
Anyone know how to resolve this problem? Is my software out of date? For what it's worth, I haven't changed any of the computer settings or installed any new programs recently.
Thanks in advance for any time spent on my behalf!
