Question about Samsung SyncMaster 216BW Monitor

1 Answer

My Samsung 216BW is dead I think?

I have had my Samsung 216BW computer monitor for a little over a year now. The other morning I went use it and the monitor was dead. It wouldn't power up at all. After my frustration subsided I noticed that there was a very slight chirpping sound coming from the rear of the monitor. Is this an indication of what may be wrong with it? Thanks

It seems it is the power suply, because some componets inside make that noise that you said.
Or It may be the power cord so be sure the 120 volts are passing some time it can be break in the base rear the monitor.
The probelm is that I don't now where you can get the parts taht you need for your monitor.
I hope it helps you.

Out of nowhere my monitor is showing Check Signal Cable and the digital analog box is showing as well - why?

It is possibly a loose VGA or DVI-D connector on the monitor internally. Those are the outputs to provide you video. I would suggest replacing cables, or too buy a new monitor.

Samsung 216bw does not turn on initially. It starts to, then goes black. If I turn it off and back on several times, it finally stays on.


The problem you are having is an indication of a failing power supply. There are parts called capacitors that fail and cause the power supply to not start up correctly. When you keep pressing the start button the voltages coming out of the power supply will finally stabilize and the monitor will display a picture until you turn it off then you have to start all over again. The power board can be easily repaired by replacing the ad capacitors. You can get information about the parts needed here: The repair will require you doing a little soldering but its very easy.

I hope this helps, if so please please rate our solution.

I have 3 samsung monitors and all of them went black within weeks of each other and they are only 2 years old, whats wrong

That is about right time for the monitors to fail, look for bad caps in the power supply first and report back so we can guide you further, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors due to badc caps:
They are made to fail, even MAC uses cheaply made parts.

Sansung monitor going black!!

I have done some research about your product. If you have checked all the cables and connections to make sure the pins are not bent and cables are connected properly, etc. You stated that you hooked the monitor up to a different computer system that is known to be working and you still experience the same problem then it is not your video card and is your monitor. According to the samsung website your monitor is covered for 3 years parts and labor but you will have to pay for shipping and handling, you can check the site to confirm this among other bits of information. I think the monitors back lamp has gone out and will need service done to repair it which you may or may not want to do your self, but the following is a tutorial on how to replace the back lamp yourself. Just remember if you choose to do it yourself you could void any warranty that currently covers your monitor and this tutorial is just to give you an idea of how to replace a back lamp on an lcd monitor and is not your specific monitor instructions. Check the samsung website first as they also have troubleshooting guides to help you run basic tests and such, but they are very basic and will not help you much in my opinion as I have looked at them. They simply want you to send your monitor if for services. I hope this has helped you and if you need further assistance please let me know with a comment under this solution and I will be more than happy to help.

If you do not mind please rate my help, I would appreciate it. Thanks
