Just a little while ago, I was surfing the internet and my monitor just switched to a completely blank white screen. I rebooted my computer, but now the monitor will display nothing but a blank white screen. I can't see the boot up screen, windows loading screen, or even the actual monitor controls (brightness/contrast...the buttons on the monitor itself). I use my xbox 360 on this monitor too, using the VGA connection. It also only shows a white screen for everything. I unplugged the monitor from everything so only the power cord is plugged in and turned the monitor on...nothing but white screen.
My monitor is listed in my Sig along with my other hardware. I have never had a problem with this monitor since I got it a year and a half ago. There has been no dead pixels or anything. It just happened right out of the blue.
Well I called Samsung support and they shipped a replacement to the nearest UPS store in my location.
Problem solved I guess. I hope I get one of the newer models....but doubtful.
