Samsung 172T Flat Panel Crooked - Need Help

Q: Samsung 172T Flat Panel Crooked - Need Help

Hi, All.
I just purchased two Samsung 172T black flat panel monitors. After I opened the double hinge stand and stood them up, the panels tilted to the right. In other words, they are not level. The shelf is pretty level. The panel is not level or parallel with its base. Both units tilt the same on different shelfs. So, I cannot believe that I got two bad units.

Is there an adjustment screw on the hinge that will enable me to level the unit? I have yet to call Samsung - I thought that I would try here first.

If you are looking for HDTV's LCD technology is the way to go. I'd say that monitor is pretty good but for a couple hundred more you can get much better. Save your money until you have enough to get a better one.

Suddenly my monitor quit working a couple days ago. I guess it's about 4 or 5 yrs old. Never a problem until Sun a.m. When I got up my computer was dead. Put a new power supply in and then everything worked. Checked my e-mail and later came back and the monitor wouldn't work. I have a new moniter now, but wonder if there is any way to trouble shoot the old one. I don't know if they are worth doing anything with or not.

i need recommendations for 17" and 19" flat panel monitors that are reasonably priced.

A:flat panel monitors



Check out SAMS or CostCo or Best Buy.

About $350~450 for a 17" model. $550~700 for a 19".

DVI is a bit better for 17" displays, but a must for 18" and bigger.

DELL offers a flat panel in both Analog and Digital mode. For ordinary usage would one see a significant difference between the 2: enough to justify what, I believe, is about $80 in the case of the 19" screen?

A:DELL Flat Panel

IMO, no. Others may have a different opinion. I have two 19" LCD's on this system, one connected DVI and one analog. If there's a difference, my eyes aren't good enough to see it.

That being said, if I buy another panel for another system, I'll be buying one with both VGA and DVI inputs for maximum flexibility.

Hi all, I'm thinking about purchasing a 15" LCD monitor and I was wondering if the hookup is as easy as removing the old monitor and plugging in the new one or do you have to install some drivers ?
I was looking at the ViewSonic VE-150 model that goes for around $360. Any other recommendations ?


A:Flat Panel monitors

Yes, it really is that easy, and yes, you will likely have to install some drivers in order to take full advantage of your monitor. Windoze will probably recognize your new monitor on the first boot after installation and prompt you for drivers (or at least offer you the option of installing drivers).

I use a Samsung (570S, I think) flat-panel that allows the screen to be rotated so I can see an entire document page at once (very useful for text/word processing work). Obviously, I need a special driver in order to do this (supplied with the monitor).

Love the deskspace!

Initial Problem.....

I have Toshiba Model 32LV67u 2007 Model w/PC Input 15 pin RGB Analog; 3 HDMI Inputs; s-video; a/v cables; coaxial; and Optical audio inputs

The problem initialy seemed to be the driver Not allowing my Display Resolution to be in Wide Screen Format and the Resolution is to Large on my Flat Panel TV Monitor....

With from this forum and other sources I was able to narrow the problem(s) down to 2 seperate issues.......

1) The Monitor Driver 2) Input Selection 15 pin RGB Analog or HDMI


As stated in the other thread Adriver problem did exist from on the resolution issue BUT since the NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS forced a analog signal format monitor driver into the TV Flat Panel and resricted the Resolution to a limited 1024 x 768 although I could adjust it in the Nvidia Control Panel it was UNSUPPORTED by the TV Flat Panel.....

After trying several attempts with forcing differnet drivers and resolutions Unsupported and viewing specifiactions in the TV Owners Manual it led me to try one more thing before giving up and it worked.......

The NVIDIA GeForce and Other Graphics Cards come with DVI adapters converting the signal from DVI to 15 pin RGB Analog as you do on you PC Monitor and the most Flat Panels have the same Input (15 Pin Analog PC Monitor Input) BUT some Flat Panel TV's sush as mine the Toshiba Model 32LV67u recommends that you use a HDMI Input for the best Resolution afterall it has 3 HDMI Input slots wit the 15 pin PC Input...

Hey, I'm wondering if I should hurry up and exchange this monitor before the 30-day period is over.

Last night for a few mins it looked as though everything on the screen sort of had a trail. Like when you have the trail turned on for the mouse. Anyway, it went away a couple minutes later. But this morning when I turned it on I had the same trail type look on all the icons, and there was an occasional blink of the screen. I tightened the monitor cable but the trail remained. Then I left the room and came back, and they were gone.

Do I need a new monitor, or does this happen with all flat panels?

A:Flat Panel Monitor

It may not be the flat panel that is the problem. First check to see if this trail exists outside of your operating system. Like go to the BIOS or DOS, does it happen there too? Don't use the MS-DOS shortcut in windows because you are still running the monitor driver that it loaded. Your problem could be software related, corrupt or incorrect drivers.

If you do have correct drivers and connects, it may be monitor. I don't know it all, but this is my theory.

I'm finally going to change my 19" monitor to an LCD flat panel. I've been using a borrowed one and the ergonomic improvement in my desk layout has convinced me to let the moths out of the wallet...

Anyway, when reviewing the available monitors at BestBuy.com (for reference info), I'm finding all sorts of different specs (using 19" as an example)... e.g., 2 ms to 8 ms, 1000:1 ratio to 10,000:1 ratio, etc, etc...

I'm assuming that all of this really means something, but since I'm not doing any online gaming or heavy video stuff, what kind of specs should I stick to? My usage is all standard MS Office, some graphics, Internet cruisin', etc...

I'm using XP Home, SP2 on an older custom built PC with updated cards, etc. It's driving this borrowed 19" Westinghouse LCM-19v7 flat panel monitor just fine, so I don't expect any issues there.

Any advice or recommendations?


A:What to look for in Flat Panel LCD Monitors?

Well: 2000:1 ratio is fine, 300 cd/m*m is with almost all, 5 ms is good (if it's not GTG), 2 ms is for gaming uses, 8 ms sucks.
How much is there living with the moths? Could link something somewhere (most propably newegg, they have good items for nice prices)

I am looking at a new computer and will be getting a flat panel monitor. I have some questions. When I look at the pixel pitch for a 17 ,19,and 20 in. The 17 and 20 has .255 while all the 19's have .294. Why is that. Also is one that is digital worth the difference in price vs analog?

A:Flat Panel Monitors

Each "pixel" on an LCD maps exactly to a display adapter pixel, the larger the screen the (slightly) larger the pixel. The higher the native resolution the smaller the pixel. So the difference would be a mix of native resolution vs screen size.

You should only run an LCD at its "native resolution", anything else can result in a poor picture.

On a CRT there is no such this as a "pixel" in reality, it is the size of display pixel equivalent determined by how fast the beam can turn on and off.

For that reason the LCD is often much sharper than the CRT.

Digital interface is good, providing your graphics card supports it (DVI). With DVI, the screen displays the exact mapping. With VGA connection a digital to analogue to digital conversion is required.

I run 2 x 19" LCDs here, one DVI and one VGA connected. The difference is minor, but it's there. They are both 0.294, and have resolutions of 1280 x 1024.

Higher native resolution does mean smaller (but crisp) characters.

I have a flatpanel monitor that is 3 years old. It's a BENQ FP767. Here's the problem:

After my husband plays a video game, such as Dawn of War, the colors look normal. However, if he reboots the computer, the colors are far too bright. They cannot be adjusted back to normal using monitor controls, and the problem can be "fixed" by loading the game and then exiting out. What can I do to fix this?

A:Flat Panel Too Bright....But Only Sometimes

Since they eventually get back to "normal", how do you accomplish that? My guess would be to turn off the monitor, but that's just my guess. The monitor may have a problem, or your video card may be confused.

Hi all,
I know that LCD flat panel screens eventually start going dim after a few years, but the question I have is what is best to perlong the life of the screen: shut it off if you won't be using it say for 10 minutes....or just leave it on all the time? Basically which harder on the screen, turning it off and on when not used for short periods of time or just leaving it on?

I have been leaving the auto shutoff for 10 minutes or so on the LCD, I know CRT's it is better just to leave them on for short periods between use and have a screen saver on to prevent burn-in. But as I said what is best for LCD? Thanks in advance.

I have a 17" Microtek (i know, but it wuz an X-mas gift, and has worked wonderfully) Flat Panel LCD monitor... my cell slipped out of my hand and hit the lower right hand corner of the monitor screen, causing what i can only say looks like a spider-web pattern to appear - that part is very small, but there are also very fine lines that extend from the bottom to the top of the screen on the right side and 2 very fine lines that go from right to left and in towards mid screen about 4"... in the very bottom right corner there is a part where the background color is black (still with the lines thru it) but on the entire rest of the screen i can see my wallpaper just fine, no problem with resolution, etc... just these very fine, very bothersome lines where it used to be absolutely perfect....
My question to u is : can this monitor be repaired ? If so, is it something that i can do myself given the right information and having access to the parts ?....(im not as challenged as u might think, but then again.... maybe... ) Please advise... look forward to hearing ur thoughts on this... no way can i replace this monitor right now, and really dont want to learn to live with it this way.....

Hi all, I will be purchasing this soon and I was wondering if it's ok to leave the monitor on for a few hours (screensaver on). Would this adversely affect the monitor ? I don't think it affects regular CRT monitor life, but I'm not sure about LCD monitors.


A:Flat Panel Monitor question

As far as I know, there's no problem leaving the monitor on for an extended period. I use two LCD flat-screen monitors and have never experienced a problem. Note that if you have power management enabled, your monitor may go into sleep/suspend mode even if your screensaver is active, which definitely is not a problem.

Hope this helps.

I am currently experiencing a problem with my monitor, and I am at a loss to explain the cause. I have a Liquid Video 17" flat panel, and as of three weeks ago, it has begun to "blip" out, intermittently. There is no regular pattern to it, and I can find no specific action that causes the monitor to act up. I have tried updating the video drivers, to no avail. The video card has been replaced (due to out-dated-ness), also to no avail. In order to test the monitor, it was hooked up to another person's computer, and the monitor works perfectly.

The computer was originally built by CyberPower Inc., in 2002. Since that time, the MoBo, video card, memory, and two hard drives have been upgraded or replaced. Am currently running W2K. Processor is an AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1.3Ghz, and has 1GB memory, with a 40GB and 60GB hard drive. Vid card is GeForce FX 5200, with 128MB memory.

Hello , and welcome aboard

I am not very sure, but it might be that as in the BIOS it is only the basic graphics works, so the connection from the GPU to the monitor is inactive.

If, for the time being you connect the cable to the motherboard's slot , most probably the bios menu will be shown .

I was prepared to purchase a Dell Ultrasharp 19 inch monitor for a system I am currently building when someone suggested that I consider a Dell 17 inch LCD TV monitor instead (screen of TV a couple of inches shorter in height but a couple of inches wider). They said it would function the same, but would allow me to split screen documents (view two pages at once) and be better for video viewing (movies, presentation videos, etc.).

I do biomedical research so my primary use for this new monitor/computer will be statistical analysis (medical and financial programming (SAS, SPSS, EXCEL), internet research, digital picture analysis (MRI, CAT, ultrasound images, etc.), digital video (presentations and analysis)...and non-work related DVD viewing and music recording, burning and listening (all work and no play... gotta have a life too. ;o) ).

I'd really appreciate help to know which monitor system would be best for these uses? Would there be any difference in refresh rates or letter clarity (documents)? Ultimately I guess I am wondering about the pros and cons of each type.

Thank you *very much* once again for your help!
