I also have the same problem with my 2494HS
I have doing several test, the result is VGA and DVI looks perfect and HDMI no; so I've searched on google and I found this thread wich saved my life
Just Switching off AV mode to have a really clear 1920 x 1080.

Many thanks for sharing your information!!!

Well, after stumping both Samsung and Dell (XPS M1330 laptop) tech support, I found that one of the monitor's own menu options (under Setup if you scroll down far enough) is "AV mode." It can be toggled on or off, but seems to come pre-configured as ON for HDMI from the factory! Everything looks great now that it's off.

Interestingly, other people who bought other makes of LCDs were also posting similar complaints about the overscan problem when using HDMI...maybe it's not just Samsung.

Filarabit Thank you so much textinmotion!!! That was exactly it... the a/v setting. I never tried to scroll that far down on the settings menu, so I never saw that option! Instantly fixed and now crystal clear on HDMI.

Perfect!

Sorry to bring an old thread from the grave but I really got to hand it to textinmotion, he completely solved the problem with AV mode. In fact I didn't even see you could scroll down for more options until my gf said something about it and he mentioned this mode I had never seen before. Sheesh I've had this problem and this monitor for ages now and only NOW am I figuring this out. Thanks!

miamimike Thanks so much for letting me know about AV mode and the HDMI issues.

I kept mine on HDMI and turned off AV mode and the blurry text problem at least went away.

I bought this thing from Costco so I may try and exchange it; sometimes they will allow that.

Regards,
Mike

waqas_pkt Hi All,

I bought this 2494HM and have the same problem , blury text and googling from 2 hours and found this forum now.

My problem is I have laptop T400 with ATI RADEON 3400HD card, and using VGA input,

I can't even find that AV option in menu?
Someone have any suggestion?

thanks..

freeDom84 Hello.

I've found out the solution of the 2494HM HDMI problem:

1. Deactivate "AV Mode" in the Monitor Menü ----> no more blurry screen
2. Set "overscan" to 0% in your advanced graphic options of your graphic drivers (eg catalyst control center) ---> no more black bar

thats it. pretty simple. the monitor is great! have fun

samuelyuen3 seems like people are happy with using their TV as computer monitor here. Just want to check: the text quality is good enough and big enough for you to browse webs and type emails even if you sit 2 meters away from the monitor? (say if your TV screen 32")

Any suggestions for wireless keyboard with build in touchpad/trackball?

Many thanks.

squish Our company bought around 20 of these earlier this year and they have been a disaster since day one. We have had numerous native-resolution issues on about 5 of the monitors. Sometimes the monitor will display the 1920x1080 resolution with about 2 inches of black bars on either side of the image. Other times, after setting to native, the screen will get distorted and display about 16 small boxes containing miniature versions of the desktop all skewed and distorted.

2 of the monitors have black vertical lines about 3 pixel-width wide that we can't get rid of.

Not only that, many of the people here use handheld radios to communicate around the building. If they use the radio anywhere near these monitors, they go absolutely haywire and start flickering on and off, or will go into an infinite loop of switching between the magicbright settings. Very bizarre!

Samsung stopped producing these monitors and no longer support them. If you contact them about replacement, they will try and ship you a 2443BW instead, which of course doesn't have speakers.

Disappointing to say the least. These things were an administrative nightmare.

texinmotion Hi jthg, that is good news.
Do post if you find an answer about linking a laptop's sleep mode with that of the monitor, that would be really helpful. So far, I'd set the monitor to a four-hour delay for its sleep mode. Sadly, it does exactly that: regardless of activity on the laptop, the monitor goes to sleep every four hours... Obviously, there's nothing in the signal on the HDMI line that indicates typing, but it should at least power-down when no signal is detected. I've not chased that problem though, and maybe another thread on this forum has some tips for us...
