Glad I found this forum and hope I am posting in the relevant section? I'm sorry to be asking a technical issue question straight away, but this is driving me nuts now!!!
Basically, I have a Samsung S23A350B Monitor, which out of the blue the other day, would not come out of sleep/standby mode!!!
I'm running through it's analog connection and after checking many things (including latest firmware, MANY YouTube videos) ... I am at a loss of what the exact issue is.
Apparently, I am running the latest firmware .. but not sure if it could be damaged? ... would the installer recognise it, if this was the case?? ... of course, Samsung's website states that if you see the "check signal" OSD, then the monitor is working properly - well, that's as much help as a chocolate teapot.
Now, my wife has the exact same monitor, so swapping them out (leaving my VGA Cable and running from my CPU) all works well ... so this would tell me that the problem is purely with the monitor, whether firmware related or some other kind of fault??
So ... before I run out and buy a new monitor, I live in hope that someone out there has encountered a similar problem and can share their experiences (good or bad).
I am even toying with purchasing a DVI/HDMI cable to eliminate the fact, that it may just be a fault on the Analog side of things - if that is at all possible).
All the best for now,
