Posted by: kaliguy42 Oct 25 2012, 08:08 PM

I have a Samsung Syncmaster 913v,the power light flashes and the monitor is black screen.I have since been using another monitor on my desktop and left the syncmaster plugged in to the power and disconnected from a computer to see if it will wake up.It still flashes the green power light with black screen.

Os Linux Mint 13

Typically without a signal a monitor will automatically go go sleep. Can you access the configuration menu? If not the monitor may be broken.

No,its just a black screen.

What happens when you turn it off and then back on. Do you see anything on the monitor?

If you can not access the set up screens via menu switches nor see any indications when powered on then the monitor may be broken. Have you checked the manual for some troubleshooting help?

I left the monitor on while not hooked up to a pc to see if it would come back on and give me a no signal error and it did.I've hooked it back up to my pc and rebooted and now its working.(I'm not going to shut it off)I'm thinking it might be a driver problem doing this?I've had this happen with a different pc and monitor running in a past linux version.
