✔ Best Answer
Was the monitor powered on before you got there ? If yes, why ?

"My computer workd fine with other monitors."

If that's supposed to be "My computer works fine with other monitors"
as in, it works fine with other monitors NOW, the Samsung monitor is defective, if you're plugging the other monitors into the same video port.
If it's still under warranty, if it's your responsibility, take it to a local place that is authorized to repair Samsung products.

If it's NOT still under warranty, take it there anyway and get an estimate. In some cases it's relatively inexpensive to fix it.

E.g. A friend's older LG LCD model did that - I opened it up and took a look, found a failed capacitor - I replaced two made by the same brand with high quailty ones - parts less than 10 bucks.

yes, the monitor was left on all night. would not come out of sleep mode. and yes, other monitors are working on it right now. I guess I will have to take it in and have it looked at.

Monitors don't go into "sleep" mode on their own. The operating system has to activate that.

The monitor appears to be in "sleep" mode whenever it isn't getting a video signal.
If no monitor worked with your computer, then there is something else wrong with the computer that is causing the monitor to produce no video.

The chances are good your Samsung monitor can be fixed for a reasonable price. I have several old CRT Samsung monitors I've had no problems with, and a friend had two newer Samsung LCD models, one of which is a combo TV / monitor - the latter had a problem after about two years with the TV display only, but it was fixed free locally, covered under the 3 year warranty. She used both of them 24 /7 most of the time for over 5 years and the display still looked excellent.
