Question about Samsung SyncMaster 245BW Monitor
The subject says it all... I was filing some papers - nothing unusual going on - heard a very sharp snap or crack sound and the monitor was no longer working. The power button was still working and getting electricity, but a dead screen. Any ideas what this could be? I'm pretty handy with repairing PCs and I was able to get the back cover off with no problems, but couldn't see anything obvious.
Thanks for any help.
Be very careful! Some monitors/TV's have 30,000+ volts DC in them even when not plugged into AC house current. The crack/snap sound was most likely an electrical component breaking down and shorting against the metal of the case of the monitor. I would take the monitor to an authorized repair center because the danger of getting shocked/killed is very possible while working on this type of problem at home.
