I lowered the brightness. That helped a bit. But issue is its sort of a bit too dark.


the contrast i did lower it. But i cannot low it too much otherwise it would be too dark.

Does anyone know if there is a chance this monitor is a bit defective with this coloring? I believe he told me he used it for a bit over 2 years. This monitor is a much older model though. The coloring is just very hard on the eyes that i can barely look at the monitor long enough.

Can someone also confirm here that this can be fixed somehow with the settings or calibration or anything like that? So i dont have to go back there and ask? I have a hard time using the monitor like it is and i would assume most people would similarly as well.

The proof's in the pudding PJ, we can't confirm anything until you actually try the suggestions we've offered.

There may be a bit of hope, I went back to the manuals page for the monitor and D/L'd all the English manuals and in the one that is 6.94MB there are different settings and one of them is to allow the monitor to run with a PC/DVI.

You'll find the manual when you click on "see more" at Manuals & Downloads, it's second from the bottom (User Manual ver.1.0. (ENGLISH, 6.94MB)). Use the menu to go to "Adjusting the Picture" and it'll show you how to adjust it. the chapter starts on pg35 and goes to pg39, on pg38 it shows how to adjust the RGB red, green, and blue tones of the display, and I'll bet that's where you'll get rid of that yellowness.

It'll make it easier if you have the remote but there should still be a way to make the adjustments through the OSM - On Screen Menu. Check pg11 for menu button location.

We may be able to confirm after you go through these adjustments, and don't be afraid to experiment, there should be a reset to default in the menu.

Someone recommended me to do calibration settings. I did this however... i cannot get all the dots to be removed in gamma. The tie and the white shirt, i made no changes becaues i could tell difference. I then applied these changes only to my samsung monitor.


I noticed that the screen was a bit darker which i liked. However when i viewed pictures, it was lot darker where there is no brightness on it which i did not like. So i went back to calibration and clicked okay on each one without making changes thus its back to default.


Is there a way to make my samsung monitor display settings exactly like my laptop? Laptop is dell xps 15 and the dsiplay is just very good. Is there a way to do this on my samsung monitor to copy the exact settings? Thus check contrast, brightness etc level on this dell and copy it on the samsung? Or a laptop screen you cannot check this since its not a monitor? When my asus monitor worked, it was very good. It was pretty much the same level as this laptop screen. It was bright enough, google site showed white and it wasn't like the picture where it displayed that yellow thing.

I brought the monitor to the computer place. The guy looked it over and didn't notice the color at all. He had connected the monitor to his computer. I noticed that it looked okay. I then connected the monitor to my laptop. It looked okay but when i showed a chrome page on the laptop and one the monitor, there was a difference you notice but i didn't notice it as much at my place. I then showed pictures of how it looked if i take a picture of the google page on chrome with my iphone. I showed how its clear white on my iphone but on the monitor, you see that yellow thing. He noticed it as well. Then i went to take picture of the monitor and he noticed that there is the yellow. He then tells me he knows why and the reason is because this monitor is an old LCD monitor and LED. He said if you take a picture of it with your phone on any crt or lcd or plasma monitor of a webpage, it will display the yellow. I did not know this. Is anyone of you familiar with this? I had used crt , lcd monitors before but this was a while back. I never noticed this though... then again technology was slower back then.


But the yellow is something i noticed. He said yes everything with the monitor is fine. So does that mean i can just do the brightness/calibrate to try to get the best settings possible? Thus this monitor is like this because its LCD? Also this light isn't that bright compared to my laptop monitor. He said its because my laptop is LED screen and thats why its very bright.


I like to know is there a setting configuration out there for this samsung or any samsung lcd hdtv monitor where it can make the picture and display look the best? Such that what number to put for contrast, brightness and anything else etc.

Sounds like you have a good local tech guy, don't lose him/her.

it would be true that the different light sources for the display would emit different light wave frequencies and trying to use a video display with drivers in your laptop not designed for it would produce unacceptable results.

For now I would try adjusting the configuration settings (brightness and calibrate) to get the best settings possible.

You could try installing the drivers for the 240 if you haven't already but its an 8year old monitor and may not work with win 7.

I remember when I was looking for reviews on a samsung plasma TV I ran across some forums that members would exchange settings like this from AVS Forums: Post #28 I didn't look through the whole thread.

I don't mean to worry you but I did see this while researching your thread: Samsung T240HD Monitor repair Kit (8 Capacitors)

You'e just going to have to experiment PJ.

Look the gamma is very hard to get exactly right it varies from machine to machine but as long a it is close to that dark grey spot in the centre it should be alright to go. Having it out of whack can mak a mess of the screen as you say difficult to even look at.
