I have a Samsung Syncmaster 920NW monitor that turns off after 3 minutes. Any idea how to fix it?

Asked by LuckyGuy (35873points) May 28th, 2010

The monitor is just about 1 year old. 19 inch. It works perfectly for about 2 to 3 minutes and then shuts off. I tried dimming the screen to see if it was heat related but could not see any effect. If I turn it off then on, it will run for about 10 seconds. The resolution is great – when it runs. Is this a common problem? Any idea on how to fix it? It is very frustrating.

I would call the manufacturer and see if they have any suggestions or warranty information.

idk but I have a 24” samsung that is about the same age and it has an annoying flicker… hoping it doesn’t turn into your problem.

I spent too much time screwing around with it and threw it out vowing that my next purchase would not be a Samsung. I got an Insignia, and it has been working great for 2 years.
