I have calibrated it as best I can with brightness at 100 (its actually not too bad. With hdmi black level to low, gamma mode 3, r g b at 43 50 53 respectively and then contrast at 58, it actually looks pretty nice. though over satturated and quite washed out at the high end). Obviously this still isn't ideal though. I really don't want to have to RMA the monitor so any tips would be appreciated.

Never had that issue with my Samsung S23A950D.

I adjusted the brightness on my S23A950D and I'm not hearing any buzzing noise.

Perhaps you got a faulty monitor. You should contact the retailer to get a replacement.

discovered that the noise is actually coming from the power brick.

doesn't seem very safe...

It's just a buzzing coil or transformer. There is no safety issue here, just an annoyance issue. Contact Samsung and see if they will let you just return the adapter.

I have seen other monitors with internal power supplies do this exact same thing. When we get one in our shop I just replace the power board. In this case, you'll need to have the ac adapter replaced. The only other option I can suggest is to try plugging it into a different outlet on a different circuit and see if maybe some noise in the power line was causing the issue.

That's not dangerous at all. Ask Samsung for a replacement.

Apologies if this has been covered before, but I couldn't find a definitive answer by searching/browsing this thread.

Is there a proper fix for the "screen turning off" issue when running from the DisplayPort? I just bought a S27A950 to add to my existing dual screen setup. I've set the SA950 up as my primary monitor via DisplayPort and the older monitors are connected via DVI ports. The SA950 occasionally goes blank... I've seen numerous reports of this from others on various forums on the web.... the only real solution given has been to not use DisplayPort on the SA950... that seems like a pretty poor option... have Samsung still not fixed this problem? Is the DisplayPort on the SA950 completely useless?

I'm guessing I'm going to have to move the SA950 to the dual link DVI and move the old monitor from there to the HDMI.

Not sure if it makes any difference, but my videocard is an Asus 660 Ti. (Incidentally, this is also causing me some unrelated issues... since the recent Asus BIOS update, the DisplayPort is disabled on post screen/restart/bootup and I have to log into Windows and re-enable the monitor to use it.... problem only happens with all three monitors plugged in... DisplayPort stays on after restart/bootup if I only have a total of two monitors connected).

Wow, that really sucks. I would have returned it already if I had of come across that problem. I bet it needs a firmware update, but how Samsung does firmware updates on their monitors is unknown to me. I know Viewsonic will make you send the unit into a repair shop for a firmware update, and some other companies monitors can have it done through a USB port, but I haven't looked into it on Samsung monitors.

The really sucky thing is it can be hard to get straight answers from Samsung. Their support isn't very good even though their products are pretty sweet. You could get an display port to DVI adapter and use one of your other monitors on the DP output of your video card. The DVI-D Dual works great on this monitor so far.

In one of my previous posts I mentioned I was going to experiment with blu-rays and 3D this weekend.

I have an ASUS Blu-ray burner, and Corel WinDVD Pro 2010. I installed the WinDVD Pro and tried Blu-rays, and they work fine, however all the 3D options were greyed out. I was going to purchase a 3D Blu-ray just for experimenting, but since the options were greyed out I think I might just be wasting my money.

I'm wondering if they may be because I'm not using HDMI? I know there are DRM issues if you don't use HDMI, however the movies I tried worked fine in what looked like 1080p. The monitor was in 1080p, but I couldn't tell if the BR Drive was outputting in 1080p, or just 480p and the system was upconverting it to 1080p.

I have heard in my line of work (and actually experienced it) that if you are not using HDMI (like some of the older plasma TVs with just component outputs) that you cannot view Blu-rays in HD and they will only work in 480p. This is because the component outputs are just outputs and have no two-way communication, while HDMI is a BUS and the DRM can communicate between the blu-ray player and the display device.

I did plug my PC into my HDTV using HDMI and I know the resulting picture was 1080p because of how sharp it was. If anyone gets 3D Blu-rays to work on this monitor in any way other than plugging a PS3 or Blu-ray player into it (in other words, using a PC) please let us know how you managed it.

Samsung released a new firmware update a couple of months ago:

Most people said that their monitors don't have the screen turning off issue after downloading and installing that update.

Actually that firmware is not applicable to the SA750 or SA950 series monitors and is for some of the lower-end models. I have attempted to apply this firmware update to a number of S27A750D and S27A950D units and it was not applicable to those models. The SA series of monitors is very broad and this firmware is most likely aimed at lower models such as the SA350 series. I have had a number of users contact me stating their disappointment that the firmware wouldn't install on their SA750s - it simply isn't meant for them.
