Hardware :: Using Samsung SyncMaster T240 - Screen Sleeping?

I had two of these screens connected to my 2009 MacPro, one to the Ati 4870 and the other to GeForce GT120. I was using them both together mounthes and was happy with them until this morning, when I woke my computer from slee[, I thought that my ther screen was sleeping or may be I had maximized a streaming youtube video while sleeping and it ended and it was the black screen I thought, so I pressed escape to get rid of full size mode but I noticed that the screen was working, but it was hardly noticeable, I mean, everything is all black as if the screen is turned off. I can very hardly see the wallpaper. The Problem is that when I turn it on, the screen is as it should be for 1 second then goes back to like this, even when I click on settings of the screen from the side buttons, they are dark too but I arrived to check the settings and brightness and contrast are on maximum.. and the problem is that I bought the screens when I was in France and now I am in italy, I dont know what to do.

Mac Pro :: Using Samsung SyncMaster 2253LW
I recently purchased a 2009 Mac Pro (ATI 4870) and am using it with the 22" Samsung SyncMaster2253LW monitor. I'm no monitor expert, but a lot of videos etc look highly pixelated etc. The Desktop and everything else is fine. Most of the options aren't accessible esp the contrast. I have it connected via DVI and VGA :P Does DVI or VGA mark a major difference?

I know the monitor is a bit old. It's dynamic contrast is 8000:1. Is it purely because of the monitor that the graphics look so cheap and pixelated? Even the DVDRips look quite cheap.

Do movie quality improve cause of the graphics card? Ofcourse on my compact 13" MB, DVDRips look brilliant. Should I get a better monitor? I feel my poor 4870 is feeling unused.

Hardware :: Samsung SyncMaster 906BW Menus Not Available
When I press the "menu" button on the bottom of my Samsung SyncMaster 906BW both the Picture (brightness and contrast) and Color (MagicColor, Color Tone, Color Control and Gamma) menus say "not available" at the bottom and I am unable to access them. I tried installing MagicTune, but it is not compatible with the 906BW, so offer an alternative solution. The monitor is hooked up via DVI to a Mini-Display Port to DVI convertor to my MBP.

IMac :: Connecting To Samsung SyncMaster P2450H?
At the moment I have a 24" iMac (early 2008 model) which has been a fantastic machine. But I would like to extend the screen size by plugging in either 1 or 2 extra monitors to spread my windows out. I'm a web designer now, doing things related to Wordpress, so it is useful to have all the applications open in front of me, without having to CMD + Tab between windows or use Spaces.

I asked at a local Apple reseller some time ago what options were available for pluging in an additional monitor. I was told it wasn't possible with the then newly launched Cinema display, but was told something might be possible using VGA and a third-party display.

I'm now thinking again about extending my display space. I note Apple state the 24" cinema display is now iMac compatible and I've since found various video's on YouTube showing multi-monitor configurations with the iMac. I've seen a Samsung SyncMaster P2450H (or very similar) in person and thought the picture quality was excellent. Online the SyncMaster P2450H picks up good reviews and is much cheaper than a Cinema display. So my questions are as follows:-

1) Would there be any compatiblity or other issues connecting the SyncMaster P2450H to an iMac?

2) What cables / adapters / splitters would be required for a single monitor or two monitor setup?

If anyone's got any experience of the SyncMaster P2450H or can suggest something better, I'd be interested to know.

MacBook Pro :: Using Samsung SyncMaster 2333HD Resolution
I have a brand new unibody Macbook Pro with a 15" screen. I bought a Samsung 2333HD based on reviews from other Mac users.

The problem is that the max resolution available when I plug in the monitor is 1600x900. This isn't high enough to make a sharp, clear picture on a 23" monitor. The monitor should be capable of 1920 x 1080 but that isn't an option.

Hardware :: Finding Compatibility Of Samsung Syncmaster 906BW
So I bought a 19 inch Samsung Syncmaster 906BW to use with my Macbook after reading a lot of good reviews on it. When using this monitor on Windows it is nice, lots of screen real estate and good color. However when using it with the Mac I am unable to get it to look decent. At first it was incredibly bright, which was only amplified because I have a light background. I ran the Apple display calibrator and that fixed it somewhat, but it is still too bright. There is also a noticeable difference in colors between the Macbook display and the Samsung display. The colors on the Samsung are very deep, but they're almost too deep that it is distracting. For example look at the record, it's a goldish color on the Macbook (which makes sense because it complements the lower stripe), but on the Samsung it's a bright green. Another thing to notice is the dock, the dock border is apparent on the Macbook screen but almost blends in on the Samsung. One last problem is that even with it on the max resolution (1440x900) I really don't gain any extra desktop space. On Windows when altering the resolution there is an obvious increase in real estate, but with the Mac everything just seems to become disproportionately large. (For instance the top menu bar)

MacBook Pro :: Samsung SyncMaster T220HD DisplayPort To DVI Connection ?
I have a Samsumg SyncMaster T220HD monitor.I recently bought a new MacBookPro with the following characteristics:

Model Name: MacBook Pro
Model Identifier:MacBookPro5,1
Processor Name:Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed:2.8 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2

When I connect my mac to the monitor with a DVI-D cable the monitor's screen starts flickering and I see blinked pink pixels everywhere.

I tried with and old Mac Book Pro and the monitor works just fine.

I think that the display port doesn't supprt my resolution (1680x1050) ; in fact if I decrease the resolution to something like 1200x900 the problem disappears.

I also brought my mac to the apple support center here in Italy, but the problem persists with every new Mac Book Pro they tried.

Do I have to wait for e patch? What can I do? this problem is very tiresome!

MacBook Pro :: External Display - Samsung 27' Syncmaster SA550 Monitor Won't Connect To It?
I Late 2008 Macbook Pro. My needs have shifted lately, as I am now using it mostly with an external display. I ran it into my 23(?) LG 1080 LED monitor with no problem. I recently bought a Samsung 27' Syncmaster SA550 monitor. I am in love with it, however I cannot find a display size that fits the monitor. I am currently running the 1080p resolution setting on my computer but it is easily 2-3 inches too small. And with overscan its too big to see my menu bar and dock at all. Running at a 24-25' screen size is still much better than my 15 inch macbook pro screen, but it would be awesome to use all of the 27 inches of this monitor. I have been unable to find a working setting, if there is a trick, or a way to setup a custom size As well I am running this as the sole display (not dual screens)

Pro, iOS 5.1, External Display: Samsung SA550

MacBook Pro :: New MBP 13 Is Not Sleeping But Display Is Sleeping?
I have a week old MBP 13 and it I don't think it is going to sleep like it is supposed to. I have it set to sleep after 10 minutes on battery or power. But it just isn't doing it. I come back after half hour or more, even over night and the white light is still solid and not blinking. And it immediately comes up when I touch the mouse or keyboard. Basically the display is just sleeping.

MacBook Pro :: Screen Goes Black When On Top Of Sleeping
the screen would go black for several seconds (maybe up to a minute) before coming back again. He had put it on top of his sister's sleeping white macbook (early 2007 Core 2 model). The problem went away as soon as he put the computer directly on the table, and we could reproduce it by putting it on the sleeping MacBook again. If this doesn't point at a bigger problem with his machine, it's of course not a big deal, it's probably a bad idea to stack the computers anyway BUT I would really like to know why this happens. Does anyone know? Could it be that the sensors of the machine gets confused by magnetism from the white macbook and reacts as if the lid was closed? It didn't seem like going into full sleep though, only screen sleep.

Mac Pro :: Unable To Turn On LCD Screen - Sleeping / Dead?
1. My main LCD screen won't turn on. Seems to be in sleep mode? 2. The biggest screen always takes lead to be the main screen - when plugged in (even in secondary slot). That's a problem since the big screen seems to be in sleep mode. The biggest screen is black, but the "power light" is blinking on and off (Like it does when the screen is in sleep mode). How do we awake the main screen from sleep mode? We've tried to turn both screens off and start the computer. But still, the big screen won't start. The small screen stays in secondary mode until we unplug the big screen - then the small screen turns over to being main screen. We've also tried to switch plug in slots on the screens(big as secondary, small as main), but still the big screen won't turn on.

Hardware :: Now The Picture On The MPB That Used To Fill The Samsung Screen No Longer Does?
I have a 23 inch Samsung LED that I am using with a new 15 inch i7 MBP. Everything was working wonderfully until today when I had to power my MBP off due to a program lockup. Now the picture on the MPB that used to fill the Samsung screen no longer does. It leaves about 1 1/2 inches of black on either side of the Samsung that is just dead space. Some of my programs now hang over into those areas and you cannot see them fully.Why would it have changed like this just due to a power off and how do I get it back to displaying the full screen on the Samsung? I have toyed with this for over an hour now and am getting nowhere.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Connect System 17" To Samsung Plasma Screen
it only has DVI or component inputs, no HDMI. For years, I connected my old MacBook Pro which had a DVI output, to the DVI input on the Samsung, and it worked (sort of). The computer recognized the Samsung as a 1024x768 display and the Samsung was able to act as a second computer display, albeit with the image aspect ratio incorrect, but watchable.

Hardware :: Connecting Samsung LCD To MacBook - Screen Starts Pulsating?
I just purchased a 20" Samsung SyncMater P2050 LCD monitor to hook up to my Macbook. I also bought the mini-DVI to VGA adapter, the cabling is right. After powering on the Samsung and booting my MacBook the Samsung is recognized and the snow leopard desktop comes up on the Samsung. I am able to get to the monitor set up in the preferences window, and move the external monitor to where I want it. After a short time the Samsung screen starts pulsating, first at the out side edges of the display, it progressively gets worse, ad then the screen goes black. This happens every time after I shut down the Samsung, and then power it back on.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Samsung P2370HD 23" Monitor - It Does Show The Entire Screen
I just got my Sammy HDTV/Monitor, which is a 23" 1080p HDTV. However, when I connect my MBP via my mini-displayport to HDMI adapter, the screen gets cut off on the top and the bottom. I have tried to switch the resolutions from 1080p to 720p, but it still does the same thing. It gets off both when I use the external as a secondary monitor and when I mirror the displays and use it as a primary monitor. When I turn overscan off in System Prefs, the 1080p image shrinks and there are black bars around all sides (however, it does show the entire screen). Does anyone know how to fix this? I want to get the most out of my recent purchase, and I know this is possible because I've seen it.

Power Mac G5 :: ATI Radeon 9600 XT & SyncMaster 305T
I just purchased a 30" Samsung SyncMaster 305T and have been trying to get it to run properly. I have a Dual 1.8 GHz G5 with the ATI Radeon 9600 XT card. The largest resolution it's allowing me to set on the monitor preferences window is 1280x800 (ideally i'd like the option for 2560 x 1600). Anyone know if there's any incompatibility issues with this monitor/graphics card combo?

OS X :: MBP Not Sleeping?
I have santa rosa 2.6 mbp with recent firmware update running Leopard 10.5.7.

It seems since then MBP will not always sleep when told to via screen menu in top left, it hangs on a bluey grey screen instead of transitioning to normal black power/lights out screen for sleep mode.

Only way to fix is by holding power button down..

There is an old thread about same problem but with no solid conclusions as to why so i though i would see if anyone has any new ideas as to why this is happening?

OS X :: MBP Not Sleeping Under 10.5 Or 10.6?
Ever since I reinstalled 10.5 last January, my MBP (early 2008) refuses to sleep automatically - it works fine if I direct it to sleep manually or close the lid. I had hoped that 10.6 would fix this issue, but it has not. All the settings are correct under System Preferences, so I have no clue what is going on.

PowerPC :: G5 Shuts Down Instead Of Sleeping
I hadn't been using sleep mode on my iMac G5 for a while (but it always worked previously to me setting it to "never"), and now yesterday when I turned the sleep mode back on, it has decided it wants to shut down instead of sleep. But it's not a nice just powers itself off, as if it was unplugged. It always boots back up with no problems.
