Question about Computer Monitors
Could this unit be use to cool a computer server room?
This unit has shut down on us twice in the past 2 months and we can not figure out what may be the cause?
Once we turn the indoor unit off and wait for 30 second and then put it back in the on postion it comes back on.
dustcore025, Need a little more info here. Do you know age of monitor? Was it or did it display a "perfect' image on it the day before? Is it under warranty? How far are you willing to go to try and repair this thing? Do you know how to "part" the snap together plastic back cover from the bezel, after removing the pedestal? This sounds to me like a Switch-mode-power-supply or Inverter problem that occurs when some Electrolytic Filter Capacitors get a little bit TIRED of being constantly subjected to high temperatures near heatsinks that are used to keep semiconductors within operating limits. You can determine how bad this may be if you can do a test and remember what happens. Here is what to do. Make sure PC is fully booted displaying WIN desktop or some other screen. Next, with someone to keep hitting the CTRL or SP bar key every 20-40 seconds while you reconnect both cables of your MM17 back to the PC video port and ac outlet. Now try to turn on the monitor and note exactly what you see and for how long. Did it have a sharp clear image, even for 1-2 seconds? did the screen go black? OK! Next thing is to shine a bright flashlight onto the screen 2 inches away from where you know there was something a few seconds ago. Try it at different angles and not if you see anything. get back to me with results of test. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com BYE for now.

kmzwolski, NO, NO, NO!!!! Do NOT wait. Use your warranty NOW!!! Do not let them off the hook. Could be any of the things you mentioned, plus "cold", intermittant solder joint, thermally/vibration fracture of solder joint on printed circuit board (SMPS/inverter circuit) Let me know how you fair with SAMSUNG. lmistyrel on aim.com or 12fixlouie on fixya.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the advice. I wasn't sure if I had to wait for the monitor to fail completely. I called Samsung to get the process going."
You have a power supply in the monitor that is about to fail. Check out his article on our web site about repairing this model - www.ccl-la.com If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. It involves replacing 6 small parts. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for $30 plus shipping. Let us know if you have any questions about the repair or the repair guide.

SOURCE: i have to run my
When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.
