samsung 731B Monitor
« on: December 14, 2009, 05:50:14 pm »
picked this up today, nice looking LDC mon. 17in. it has a issue just not sure what.

the silver on button has a blue light behind it, and it flashes rapidly (on.off) nothing comes on screen.

cant seem to find any info about this, is the backlight out? been trying to figure out the error code this thing is giving.

any ideas?

I would guess it is an error.

If you restarted your computer with this monitor
setup then you can check /var/log/Xorg.O.log and
see if there are any errors for the monitor.
