Samsung monitor strange behavior?

I have a samsung S27A350H 27" 1080p TN Monitor which for a long time has worked just fine, permanently plugged into the HDMI of my old desktop. However I now have a better laptop which replaced the desktop, but I find that the monitor occasionally will not display a picture when plugged into my computer. I have nvidia display output settings set to output 1920*1080, 60p, with full (not limited) 8 bit colorspace. I do not know the settings of the HDMI output. I find that if I close my laptop lid, W10 goes into either a sleep or hibernate mode, and stops providing a signal to the monitor. If I wake windows again, the monitor will not display anything. Windows appears to detect the monitor fine and extend my desktop as it should when this monitor is detected. However the monitor appears to bounce between looking for a "digital" and "analog" source (HDMI and VGA respectively) Unplugging and replugging the HDMI connector has no effect. Windows detects the monitor fine, monitor does not. Changing the output resolution, frame rate, and colorspace does not appear to change this behavior. The monitor requires a deep power-cycle. Powering it off for several minutes (supposedly to allow charge to bleed away from internal capacitors.) usually (but not always) temporarily fixes the issue. The length of time needing to be unplugged seems to vary between seconds and days. When the monitor enters this nonfunctional state, no HDMI signal is detected. (tested by replacing my computer HDMI source with a raspberry pi. I did not go so far as to adjust the HDMI output settings of the Pi by editing the config file, but the settings were previously changed to optimize the picture quality with this particular monitor in the past anyway. This monitor appears to have a simalar issue with the VGA adaptor. However fixing it is generally a matter of unplugging the VGA and plugging it back in again, or opening up the display settings on W10. Online sources appear to suggest that a firmware bug in the monitor is the culprit, and the only way to fix the monitor is to connect the monitor via VGA and use the samsung firmware tool for this monitor to update / reflash the firmware,the explanation being that a bug in the firmware causes it to overwrite parts of itself, corrupting itself as a result. However the executable provided by Samsung immediately crashes after a successful installation of it and the driver when clicking to reflash the firmware in the software. I found no information regarding the error message that appears. (note my current and only laptop does not have a VGA output. Not sure if this is the reason it crashes, the error message does not give much detail. ---- When I first received this (supposedly broken) monitor from my uncle for free, I found that it was under the warranty period and the problem at the time was that it would not display VGA or HDMI signals. Samsung offered to repair the monitor under it's warranty, and since, it has worked fine, being connected to my main computer permanently.  I suspect the problem then is the same one manifesting now.

LCD Monitor flashes primary colors

I have a nice 22" LCD monitor here, its a SCEPTRE X22WG-1080P, the monitor originally wouldn't get any signal at all. After opening it up & blowing it out, reseating all connections the monitor will turn on now, but it simply won't respond to anything. It flashes white, red, blue, green, black, etc in a repeating fashion. Anyone have a clue to what the problem is & maybe an instructable to fix it? Thanks!

Elevator type platform for heavy, CRT monitor

I have to sit sometimes and stand sometimes to use my desktop computer. I use an old, heavy, jumbo-sized CRT type monitor which has a space-saving stand on its top for my printer. Currently, when I stand, I raise the mouse on a box and elevate the keyboard on a piece of foam and I peer downward to look at the monitor. This is not always a good way to see everything on the monitor.  What kind of simple elevating/lowering platform could be constructed so that the monitor can be raised to be level with my head when I stand and lowered when I sit in front of it? I suppose some electrically powered or non-electrical hand-cranked platform would be fine. Remember: both the motor, hardware and platform have to be able to lift, lower, and support a heavy CRT monitor which has a plastic platform holding a printer above the monitor. [Due to severe space limitatons where I live in my ultra-tiny apartment, I can't really use a shelf to hold up the monitor when I stand, and besides, it would be a pain in the neck to frequently lift/lower and set in place the monitor on either the shelf or on the desktop.] Thanks

Need help to create a DIY USB monitor

Hi all, I am working on a project to create my own portable usb monitor (eg. ltn101nt02) and a LCD controller board.  However, the controller board requires a 12v power input with more than 2A. I am thinking of using a boost converter but I'm not sure if it will work. Also, with the USB as power input, can it still work as a screen input for my monitor? Can anyone advise if i can modify the board such that I can use a USB for both power input and screen input? Thanks!

Tips for cleaning a coated monitor?

I have a very large and very nice silicon graphics monitor, but the screen marks very easily. It's coated in something purple that I assume is some sort of anti-reflective coating. Basicly the problems are that pretty much anything that touches will mark it and the marks are occasionally difficult to remove. Cleaning it also leaves smear marks that can only really be removed by rubbing the screen quite hard with a cloth and crap just seem to collect around the edges. I've tried water/soap/petrol/alcohol and pretty much anything else i can get my hands on but nothing seems to work. Any tips?
