Question about Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20.1" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Horizontal line Samsung has agreed that this kind of horizontal is a fatal flaw that cannot be repaired, so the only solution is a replacement. However, this is a discontinued unit, and they say they can find none is stock and want me to accept a refurbished unit or wait until they "find" a new one "sometime in December." After reading a report here of someone having two of these monitors have the same problem, I am thinking there is either a design flaw or a mistake in production that has affected a number of monitors. This was very valualble information for me, because I now realize that I would be better off getting a refund and looking for another model. Too bad, because the quality is otherwise outstanding.

    MONITOR STARTED GOING DIM AND AT TIMES WOULD POWER DOWN. IT WILL NOW POWER UP, BUT IS SO DIM THAT THE DISPLAY IS NOT DISCERNABLE. I JUST BOUGHT A NEW 24" LG MONITOR, BUT I'M GOING TO CONTACT SAMSUNG TO TRY AND GET A REPLACEMENT.

Vertical and horizontal lines on screen


Check all connections that goes to panel from T'Con board for any loose connections. Re-seat them once and check. If the fault still persists, contact the authorized service center. T'Con as well as panel should be suspected. If you wish to get some idea about these kind of faults to LCD TVs, check this link. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center.

Samsung one horizontal line up


It may or may not be a board---it is possible it is a problem inside the display panel itself which is fatal from a cost view.

Schematics for Samsung's sets are only available online by a authorized service center with user name/password.

Toshiba 32A14 horizontal line


This symptom is characterized by a thin horizontal line in the middle of the screen. This symptom is caused by the absence of the deflection sawtooth current in the horizontal deflection coil.
The trouble is easily isolated by a continuity test and by checking the most likely defective components such as A)open vertical linearity compensation transformer, B) open capacitor and C) open horizontal deflection coil.
Be sure to decrease the brightness first before trouble-shooting if the line is very bright,as it burn the phosphor screen..

Hope this may help;
