Question about Samsung SyncMaster 1701MP (Silver) 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor

Open Question

Problem with display

My monitor is driving me crazy! after about a half hour it goes screwy! The best way I can describe it would be a colored negative, lowering the contrast on the screen makes it a little bearable, though it's still too distorted for reading. Funny thing is, after I turn it off for a couple hours it goes back to normal and then the process repeats itself.

SOURCE: 931B tries to come on but shuts back off

Problem solved by changing 3 capacitors (C112, C113, C316).

Replace the 470uF 25V with a good quality low ESR type and the two 820uF 25V with 1000uF 25V low ESR types.

The 1000uF caps should be 10x20 in size, however I managed to get 13x20 caps in, but it was a bit tight.

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. Look in our monitor repair section for step by step repair guide for this model it should be the same power supply as the 930. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

SOURCE: Laptop LCD goes black after a few seconds


Yes, The pink tint is an indication that the backlight is failing. Now the backlight is basically dead, the best way to get back going is to do an Ebay search for your model laptop and get a new screen. Most screens can be purchased for around $50.00 - $70.00 and they are very easy to swap. Email me if you need more info.

You could have a faulty inverter board or faulty CCFL lamp which can cause the screen to flash.

My monitor goes to black. i power off and on and

Your problems describe a bad Power Inverter. It's a small circuit bard inside the monitor, it powers the CCFL lamp of your monitor. Could be cheap to replace, but in most cases you just buy a new one. It could also be a bad CCFL lamp.

I have a soyo computer monitor, flat, 19

packldr, If your certain that the monitor is not going into sleep mode, you will need to find out where the possible bad solder joint might be. This type of symptom could be a "intermittant thermal fracture" of a solder joint on an internal printed circuit board inside your monitor. Your monitor works fine until the internal temperature rises enough to cause "thermal expansion" to cause a OPEN connection on some critical component on a "switch-mode-power-supply" or "cold-cathode-fluorescent-tube" power supply circuit. (INVERTER ckt) If you visit youtube, check for videos that deal with "LCD monitor repair" and "bad capacitors", "LCD disassembly" just so you know what you are dealing with. Please let me know if this was helpful to you. I'm louie12fix on fixya or Bye for now.

It can be due to the effect of some kind of magnetic effect.. If your monitor has the degauss feature then degauss it ONCE and see if returns to normal. Do not use degauss feature more than once in less than half an hour. It can damage your monitor.

Try to use other monitor and check that there is still that problem or not. If not, the problem is from monitor otherwise, it would be from CPU.

doubtful this is a driver issue warm up is not needed for any monitor. this is a power board issue internal to the monitor capacitors or some issue on the main power board. let me kow what you will do. good luck.
