Question about Computers & Internet
When i turn on the computer the power light on the lcd monitor flashes like it's off or on standby. I've tried disconnecting everything and hooking it back up. Anyone have this problem or know how to fix .
samsung syncmaster 940bf
I had the same problem...apparently the Syncmasters have some caps that are known to go bad pretty often. They will show visible swelling on the top with the slits. If they are flat they are probably good. The 820uF was too hard to find so I used a 1000uF with the same voltage. I had two caps blown on two different monitors so be sure to check them all. Hope this helps. Check out pics on BadCaps.com

I repair quite a few models of monitors and in MOST cases when a monitor goes to sleep, the light becomes a steady dim amber color.
If they flash that is usually an indication the the powerboard is not putting out enough power to run the unit or there is a problem with the inverter board.
It will more than likely have to be opened up to determine the problem.
