Question about Samsung SyncMaster 932B LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Screen is blank.

We recently had a power surge at my company when a storm rolled through. No lighting just a surge. The Monitor has a blue on switch witch blinks but the screen stays black. I've swapped out the monitor with another and that one was fine. I also tryed this monitor on another PC and it still didn't work.

    I flipped a breaker on my breaker box doing some troubleshooting on another problem and when I turned the breaker back on my Samsung SyncMaster 932B screen was black and the blue button on the lower right side was blinking.I have no picture. I re-booted the computer and checked all my connections but it still does not work.

Could have blown some capacitors inside the monitor.
I just fixed one today that had no power, the blue ring around the power button didn't even light up when plugged in.
I open it and found 3 bulgingcapacitors on the power/inverter board.
They were all 25V 470uF rated capacitors.
Went to radioshack and found 2 35V 470uf, got them at $1.29 each, then I found 1 50V 470uF out of a dc car power adapter for an ipod, it was as close as I could find.
Replaced the 3 broken/bulging ones with the new/salvaged ones, put it back together, plugged it in and the blue light came on when I pushed the power button.
Plugged it in to my laptop with vga cable, and it works great.

If the monitor does not display anything, even on another PC, I would have to say I'm sorry, but it seems fried.

Contact your insurance company and make a claim. Lightning damage to electronics like that is hard to repair.

If this happened after a storm, the monitor may have been subjected to a power surge, which unfortunately might have killed it.

If you have another monitor (or a friend who has one) try plugging that other monitor into your computer. If the second monitor works, yours will need to be replaced as the input was probably destroyed by the power surge.

If the second monitor also doesn't work, there may be a problem with your computer, most likely with the power supply (this is the part most often damaged by a power surge). You may want to have it examined by a professional computer repair person at that point.

Hope this is helpful!

Does it beep? Do you have the fans spinning? If it is a notebook, can you connect an external monitor and check if you get picture on it?

I am unable to turn on/off my dell 20" monitor. On/off button doesnt work.


Hi! Most modern monitors have on/off switches that are NOT actual power controlling devices. (i.e. they simply tell an IC chip to cut power to the display section while leaving the rest of the power supply energized.) In the earlier monitors, when you flipped that power switch, you actually cut AC power to the whole unit. Now, with today's faster computers, LCD and plasma displays, instant-on is the norm. Regardless if the button is physically damaged(usually pressed too hard) or the circuit is defective, unless you are a tech you'll have to take the unit in for repair. Is the monitor under any type of warranty? Was there a storm recently? Do you use a surge protector? If the display was damaged at all by the storm, there is a very good chance you'll be covered by the surge protector warranty.(that's what you paid for)---hope I was of assistance---Rick

The monitor was working one day and the next day, it would not come on, screen black. My grandson has had the monitor for almost three years.


Hi,
I'll hope for the best and assume the simple fix first. Check the plug at the back of the monitor to insure it wasn't pulled out slightly. Sometimes, moving something around can cuse the plug to lose proper connection.
Also, check the power source to insure that you have power to the unit. We had a lightening storm recently and the power strip surge protector did it's job. I turned it back on and everything powered up again.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

Blank Screen


Be sure that the power cable and the video cable are plugged into your monitor, the power cable is plugged into a good outlet, and the video cable is plugged into your computer. It's possible that you simply have a loose cable.

If everything is installed correctly, and if the screen is completely blank (no "cable disconnected" or "test mode" messages), then it sounds like your monitor is simply dead. Since there was a heavy wind storm recently, it was probably hit by a power surge. If you don't already, I recommend that you use a surge protector for all digital equipment.

Monitor Failure


Your system was not affected because the PSU can prevent power surges. Your monitor's backlight has went out due to surges in electricity to your monitor. Unfortunately, you can not replace the backlight. I would suggest you buy a new monitor. 19" LCD Monitors has have went down dramatically in the past month.
