Question about Samsung SyncMaster 910T 19" LCD Monitor

Syncmaster 910t blinks image perfectly once and goes back to black

I just got this samsung syncmaster 910t monitor that displays the image at full color with brightness but only for a fraction of a second and then goes black again. Power light is on and everytime I press the "source" button it blinks a small white square with "digital" written on it on the top left corner follow by the full image with "analog" on the top left screen again. Any suggestions? It seems to be an incredible screen and there is no way I could afford one of these so I would REALLY appreciate your help! Thanks!

    Yes, it's a used monitor. I have done the flashlight test now and I can see the image displaying and all the front buttons are responding. I have opened it and all the capacitators seem intact and well welded. I don't have a tester now but I have ordered one. What should I check then? Thank you very much for your help by the way :)

    Sure thing! In the board you can read P/N: BN44-00106B on the top corner and Model: PWI1704SG (B) Rev1.0 if that helps.

    I have sent you some hi-res pics to your e-mail. 

    Thanks for your help! 

    P.S.: you are F A S T in answering! :)

    Hello, did you ever fix this problem? I have the same model and after 4 years (3 is the maximum warranty service), one day, I booted up and the inverter went out. Still blinks my login screen once, but then goes black. The only difference is my PSU/inverter is listed as PWI1704SG(A) Rev 1.0.

    Larger picture will help (I'm having a hard time seeing the plug to the
    video board). What you have is a combination power-inverter board on
    this monitor and a 4 bulb screen.

    Can you post a picture somehewre or email me one.

    That will give me a better idea as to what you actually have in that monitor.

    I assume that this is a used monitor ?

    Do you have the capabilities to open it up and a tester if needed for testing voltages ?

    It sounds like a typical lcd monitor power- inverter board problem.

I've had same problem and I fixed it!
With good CCFLs, clean supplying voltages, all good capacitors and resoldered junctions, the backlight still turns on for fraction of second and goes off.
It is in the Power Supply / Inverter board. In the Inverter part there are two dual n/p-MOSFETS U3 and U4 (models STS7C4F30L, SO-8 packages). I've found they both have too high ON-Resistance (perhaps due to age and constant overheating). All you need to do is to replace them. I've checked many models and found closest by Rds and IDcont (continuous drain current) are IRF7389, you can find distributor by, but I've bought them at, they're cheap.
The hardest thing was to unsolder old chips, they are glued to PCB and because of overheated material under them, the copper could easily go apart. Therefore, the best is using fine tips cutters, cut off all legs one by one and then take chip body off the PCB and take legs from pads by iron. That's all you need. After that my monitor started working as new even with old CCFLs. Good Luck!

I found a site that sells your (our) part: Look up that model number for the power supply under "Part #" and it seems to run about $60-70. I'm probably going to order one and give it a shot as a drop in replacement.

The display on screen says check digital cable... i replace the one which is working with another monitor

If it's giving you a missing signal and you've tried a different cable it would be in your best interest to try a different monitor. It's very possible that you have a either a bad graphics card or a bad monitor.

Lock on monitor adjustments don't know how to turn off the lock so we can adjust brightness and color

Follow these instructions :
  1. Turn on your Samsung monitor (if it isn't already.)

  2. Press the "AUTO" button on your Samsung monitor. This will run the automatic configuration utility. This will look at your current computer settings and adjust your monitor to best match those. This will take a few seconds. If this has calibrated the monitor to meet your needs, you are finished with the process. If it hasn't, continue to Step 3.
  3. Press the "Menu" button on your Samsung computer monitor.
  4. Use the arrows and the "Enter" button on the monitor to highlight and select various settings categories.
  5. Use the "Brightness" menu on your Samsung monitor to adjust how bright or dark you want the image.
  6. Use the "Colors" menu to adjust how prominent certain colors are displayed on your Samsung monitor.
  7. Use the "Contrast" menu to adjust the level of black on your Samsung monitor.
  8. Select "Save and Exit" to save your changes and exit the Samsung monitor's on Screen menu.

The problem is not the LCD monitor; the problem is that the current device-driver for your computer's video-card is a "generic" ("low-resolution") device-driver.

Open "Device Manager".
Expand the "Display Adapter" section.
Double-click the video-card.
Click "update driver" and let Windows access the Internet, to search for a better driver.

Monitor is going off after a few seconds the power led is glowing


The picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the monitor, this will solve the problem and will never experience such thing again.

Take care.
