Question

I just bought a samsung b2330 23" monitor. I think it's supposed to tilt but I can't seem to get it to and am afraid of breaking the base if I try.

Can it tilt and how do I do so safely?

Simply hold down the base with one hand and gently push back the top of the monitor with the other hand to tilt it back. You won't break it--I was afraid to break it, too, lol.

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM INITIALLY, CALLED SAMSUNG SUPPORT, AND WAS TOLD THAT EITHER I NEEDED TO UPGRADE MY GRAPHICS CARD, OR MY USE OF THE CABLE ADAPTER SO THAT I COULD PLUG INTO THE USB PORT OF MY MAC MINI WAS CAUSING A PROBLEM. THEY SUGGESTED I CONTACT MAC SUPPORT. HOWEVER, BY THE TIME I HAD DONE ALL THE SETUP I COULD, MY MAC MINI (BOUGHT JUNE 2009) "HAD FIGURED OUT THE THE NEW MONITOR" AND I FOUND THAT AN EXTENDED LIST OF RESOLUTIONS HAD APPEARED AND THE RECOMMENDED RESOLUTION SOLUTION WAS NOW PRESENT. SO IN THIS CASE, IT FIXED ITSELF.

answer 2
You have two possible problems.

1) The hardware on your computer (graphics card or onboard graphics) is limited to that max resolution (1280X1024).
2) You need to update your graphics drivers for your hardware.

Simply put, while the monitor is capable of going beyond 1280X1024 the rest of your computer may not be. I would first verify what the highest resolution your computer is capable of.

Its there just in another subgroup. Another issue with registration also comes from incompatible browser. Weird as it sounds, but I had to use Mozilla Firefox to register my monitor because IE8 wasn't jiving correctly. Good luck.

If your model of monitor did not appear, then you choose the wrong sub menu. Take a paper, write down each sub group you tried (and failed to find your model monitor), go back and try the NEXT sub group. Process of elimination! I know! It drove me crazy too! But! you must eliminate each sub group that does NOT reveal your model number. Then go to the next! I know, some of them do not seem relevant to YOUR MODEL, but they use some stupid descriptions in the sub-group product identification menu's!
Like,,,(what the heck, does essential mean??) but, there are monitors listed, in EACH sub group!
So write each sub-group down, as you try, and eliminate them, until AT LAST you will find YOUR MODEL,,,, most likely in one of the vaugely described, an inappropriatly titled groups!
I swore, up and down,,,, that my model,,,was NOT LISTED! But it was,,,,tucked away in an unlikely sounding subgroup that didn't even sound like a monitor's group!
Check them off,,,one at a time,,,until you finally,,,,finally,,,come to YOUR MODEL!
It's THERE HONEY! Honest! You just gotta be crazy, patient, and eliminate the groups that DON'T have YOUR MODEL! I'll go back and see if I can find your model! I bet it's there!
Another hint! Don't write down your model number or serial number, (as written on the shipping carton) LOOK ON THE BACK OF YOUR MONITOR, you will find a different numeral, or letter written on the actual monitor! Write to them and give them Heck! I did!

Question

Is there a an insert to the podium or stand, so I can adjust this products poor angle.

The bottom appears to take inserts, and I would love to buy one so I can use this monitor. My husband and I are 6' and 6'2" I was hoping you have an insert so we do not have to sit on the floor to use. For now it will have to stay in the box until we find a solution for the problem

The monitor tilts back: all you need to do is hold the base down with one hand and then push back the top of the monitor to tilt it back with your other hand. It can tilt pretty far back. You should have no problem with your height.

Don't be afraid to apply some pressure when tilting the monitor on its stand. The joint for mine was very stiff at first. You just have to work it back and forth a few times.

Question

How may I tilt the SyncMaster B2330 -- I do not like the downward tilt from the stand.

Also I have a stand but the mounting bracket does not fit the holes on the B2330 in case I want to move to a stand. Do I order that part from you?

About the tilt: I had the same question--until my mom walked in the room, laughed, and simply pushed the top of the monitor back with one hand while holding down the base with her other hand. The unit tilts back very easily that way... in retrospect, I don't know why I couldn't figure it out myself, lol. Glad to know I wasn't the only one.

Most likely the product is defective. I had the same issue and just bought it today. After fiddling with it and changing outlets it suddenly awoke to life, it works now, however there is no light on the power button and that button is inoperative. I will return the monitor tomorrow probably for an exchange.

Check Signal Cable means that the Monitor does not have a cable attached (VGA, DVI, HDMI, etc.) The cable must also be attached to a source such as a computer or cable box. The Check Signal Cable message will appear if no cable is attached or if the source is not sending out a signal.

If you have MagicRotation installed, right click on your dektop. At the bottom of the menu under Properties/Personalize, depending on your OS, will be the MagicRotation Menu. Select Rotate to 0 to fix this issue. If you do not have MagicRotation installed this issue is caused by the rotation functions in your graphics card. You should contact your graphics card manufacturer to resolve this issue.

How do I get my new monitor to display my desktop and programs?

My new monitor B2330 displays the background on my desktop but does not display the icons. It only displays the background screen when I open a program. It does not show my mouse unless I move it outside the screen area on my laptop monitor. I am running XP on a Sony Vaio laptop VGN-S360P.

I presume your wanting to "extend" your desktop onto your new monitor. If so, it won't have icons on it unless you drag them over there. If you really do want the icons, you're probably wanting to "duplicate" the desktop.

Just right click somewhere on the desktop and select properties and start playing around. You probably can't kill it.

Question

Samsung b2330 "not optimum mode"

Hi, i have a concern with my samsung monitor, i have used this item for roughly 1 year and have had no issues with it, unfortunately recently a number of the programs that i use when i place them into fullscreen mode i am getting a "not optimum mode" message, even when the program is in 1920x1080 at 60hz refresh rate, which is the optimum mode for this monitor. i also want to stress that these are programs that previously were working correctly in the past and no settings have been changed. it seems to only do this randomly as well, some applications will work just fine but others will not, what can i do to resolve this issue?

Some applications default to a "performance" resolution, particularly certain games. The optimum mode is the native resolution of the monitor; e.g. for 1080p HD it is 1920x1080x32bit and 60Hz refresh. If your application overrides those settings it may be because your PC performance would lag if left at optimal. In the case of games, there should be settings within the game's configuration. If this happens when normal applications are fullscreen-enabled, it may be that the application is out-of-date for your OS, or that it is running in an emulation mode. Since you do not mention your OS, I am assuming it is likely Windows XP or Windows 7. In either case, you should be able to adjust your monitor's settings either from within the standard video settings framework, or directly through your video card's software (if you have a discrete card). If you have an onboard (integrated) video solution, perhaps increasing the amount of shared RAM might alleviate your problem. I hope this helps. Cheers.
