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.

color code on a samsung LCD? Answered

I had this old laptop wich had a burned out motherboard, so i took it apart for parts. obviously, the LCD screen caught my eye. this thing has 1 connector, with  bout 40 pins. 5 wires are going to the inverter (i guess taht's it at least) and the rest goes to a circuitry on the back of the LCD. now, there are 15 wires (D-sub standard right?) going to the LCD, and i would love to know how to wire them, that is, what wire takes what voltage, data, or whatever it needs. btw, the connector to the circuitry has 20 pins, dunno what that means (multiple ground lines?) the only chip on the circuitry is labeled: LXD91810                                                           VS246AB note, the 6 could also be an 8, some genius used a permanent marker to write a 3 over it, wich makes i very hard to read... is there any site online that is about these kind of mods? i was looking but couldnt find any... i have included pictures of what i think is important, please ask if theyr either unclear, you need anything else or whatever :P any info is welcome and greatly apreciated!

Samsung series 9 keys not responding? Answered

I own a samsung series 9 ultrabook and a few days ago some of the keys on the keyboard stopped working.  Almost all of the function keys wont work and several letter keys, as well as backspace, escape, and enter.  I have no idea why this is happening.  The only inkling i might have is that microsoft intelipoint may have installed a weird keyboard driver on my laptop and now it's messed up but i was never notified of a driver update.  I have used a wireless keyboard for the computer for a while now so i don't think it has anything to do with a driver from that.  anyone help please? samsung series 9 3d gen intel core model 900x windows 7 64-bit thanks for your time :)?

Samsung lcd bad cap problems

Hey guys, recently I scored a Samsung 943nw monitor from my friend who says it's broken. So i thought, why not try repair it? Upon opening the lcd monitor up, I can see that the caps were bulging, samwha brand. The infected caps were three 25v 820µF and two 10v 1000µF. I went and sourced the caps from a couple of devices (a modem, and a power supply) When I turned the lcd on, the led was blinking. After the repair(with my crappy soldering skills), the monitor turned on, but not the backlight. I figured that the cc backlight inverter was spoiled. Then, after a probing at the components, I reset the monitor in hopes that the inverter would work. Instead, now the monitor showed no signs of life. Probing again showed that the 5v rail was 8.45v and 15v rail was 4.5v and 3.3v was ov. I still can't find the problem after hours of searching. (and a fatal electrocution from the mains input cap). Could it be my bad soldering, parts or some transistor problem? DId I also accidentally fry the image processing module?

Can someone help me with a broken samsung plasma tv?

Pic links below. So I have a 58” Samsung Plasma Model: PN55. It is having the clicking on and off problem. Apparently a lot of these TV’s are having the same issue. After I researched into it the general issue was capacitors going bad on the power board. I removed my board and inspected it and see no problems with anything. The board from what I have been told was replaced a year or so ago but I cant confirm that. So my question is: What other things can I try / test to help narrow down the issue? Here is where I am at: I have the X and Y boards unplugged so just the Power board, main video board and main logic board are plugged in. The TV will not do anything with atleast those 3 plugged in. I am leaning to the main video board as the fault since I know it has not been replaced. And from what I understand the power may loop into the power board, then go into the main video board then back into the power board. I have messed with electronics some but would consider myself between a noob and a novice, but I am willing to try anything since I will be buying replacement boards if I cant figure it out. The relay that clicks is on the top left. The power comes in on the bottom left and then out/in to the video board on the bottom right. I didn’t know if there was a way to test the voltage or something coming back in from the video board, the plug has a pin explanation next to it. Thanks in advance for any help.

Has anyone found a way to sync a Samsung Pixon with a Mac - iSync doesn't work.?

I've swapped my old Samsung D900 for a Pixon, mainly for the 8mp camera. I've managed to get my contacts onto the Pixon via repeated Sim card copying but I used to be able to sync both contacts and calendars using iSync over bluetooth but it doesn't work with the Pixon. Ideally it needs to be a non web-based technique because I have very little phone signal in the remote rural location where I live and the Pixon does not connect via wi-fi.

help identify numbers on this chip? Answered

Okay, so im looking to replace some IC's in a laptop. simple enough, but theres one thing. the part numbers differ by only one digit, and searching for either returns identical results. its a DDR ram chip, made by samsung, part "K4D551638F-TC40". the number that changes on two of the four chips is on the first line, with the word "Samsung". one two of the chips its a "510", while on the other two its a "540". if i google the chip and go to images, most of the results show one with a 510 on it. i know it isnt the clock speed, because according to the datasheet that is shown by the "TC40", so does anyone have a clue what those 3 digits on that first line mean? if anything?

what to do with 2 15" LCD monitors with a bad backlight?

The inverters are no good so reparing and selling is out of the question. so is using them, i already have a new one for my desktop and multiple monitors never work out for me. my laptop could possibly have another monitor hooked up to it but i still cant replace the inverters. it would be too expensive to fix either, (one has a bad inverter and the other has a whole bad power board) i can power up one, a Samsung SyncMaster 740N, it has no backlight, and repairing it would cost too much. i can also power up the other one, an Acer AL1706, without using the power board, but a PC power supply. the LCDs are ok as far as i can tell without backlights (ive had them both hooked up to my laptop to test them), so what can i do with these two monitors? i have no clue what to do with them, i need some inspiration. PS: one of my friends suggested i use the acer one, with a LED backlight, in my car in conjunction with a PC, when i get my car, that is.

Sometimes I accidently 'flip' On-Off-On the power switch of my TFT LCD, could this cause any harm to the LCD's circuits? Answered

Or the appliance has some protection against this? (my worry is that such on-off flipping cause some surge or arch). It's said that in modern PC LCD monitors like mine (where the power switch is just a touch sensitive area of the front bevel) most of the actual circuitry remains on all the time so I have nothing to worry about, is that correct?
