Question about Samsung 225BW Monitor
My father purchased a Samsung 225bw about 2- 2 1/2 years ago and has been having video problems for the past two weeks up until the display decided to quit showing video.
i am fairly positive the video card is busted, or there are some loose soldering thing-a-ma-gigs.
i was wondering if this is a problem that can be fixed by me, (i am not experienced, but willing to take the time to fix the problem, and also willing to open it up), or if it requires parts needed to be installed professionally.
A flashing power light and no picture is a sure indication of a shorted power supply board. There are parts called capacitors that fail and this causes the power supply to continuously shut down and restart over and over, hence the power light flashing. If you can do a little soldering then you can repair the unit. Here is a link to a service guide showing how to dis-assemble the monitor and repair the power supply board.
I hope this helps, if so please ratre my solution.
