The flashing power light or not turning on are the classic symptoms of this issue.

If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. If you don't want to do the repair we do offer a repair service for $35 plus return shipping.

on and off switch not working


Hello Michael,

The most common problem with the Samsung 940MW units that don't turn on is a failure of the power supply board. There are parts called capacitors that fail which in turn causes the power supply to not startup correctly so the monitor never powers up. Here is a link to a repair guide that should get you back watching tv and using the monitor in no time.
