If it is not still covered under warranty, start by opening the case. Once you remove the power board, you will probably notice several capacitors (the round, can shaped parts) that have tops that are not flat. If you see any that have bubbled tops instead of being completely flat, they need replaced. Once they are replaced, the monitor should turn right back on. Hope this helps.

Samsung syncmaster 215tw will only display faint blue screen-no images.


Hello,

Check for a failure of the capacitors on the power supply board. This is a common problem with these units and its a very easy repair. Here is a link to a repair guide for the SyncMaster 214T which uses the ame power supply board so the repair information would be the same for the 2 units.

My Samsung SyncMaster 215tw stays in power saving mode with the blue power button flashing and won't turn on.


I'd verify all the cable connections first.

You could be dealing with two different problems, bad monitor, or a bad videocard/pc.

I'd swap the monitor out to verify that the computer is working as it should first. Once you determine that the PC is in fact fine, my suggestion would be to change the resolution on the PC to a lower setting then normal. Once that is done Plug the Samsung SyncMaster 215tw back into the pc and see if it powers on.

If it does not, i'd check the cables and swap them with something else to make sure thats not the problem. If you have another PC available, i'd test the monitor on that PC to make sure that it is not the issue.

After all that you'll come to the determination on what the problem is. Sadly, if the LCD is bad you'll have to replace it as they are extremely expensive to repair and generally not worth it.

However, i'd verify if it is under warranty or not, you never know! you might be able to get it fixed for free :D

When I play some games on my syncmaster 215tw, the screen goes black after 5 minutes. I have to reboot everytime to get the screen back on. The blue light flashes but i cant do nothing until i reboot....


that means your VGA is not big enough to run the game.This problem is not from the monitor but your system.I suggest an upgrade in your system to enhance better performance.

Monitor will flash the display for a second then go black again.


Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Here is the user manual: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Samsung-215TW-Monitors-manual/id/278ag702/t/2/

Just get an audio cable with mini stereo phone plugs at both ends, attach one end to the PC audio line out jack (Green), the other end just goes to monitor audio line in jack (green).

Samsung 215TW Monitor Flicker


Its the capacitors on the backlight power supply. Samsung installed crappy ones and they blow up after a year or two. Change out the caps and you're good to go

Samsung SyncMaster 215tw screen goes black after about 1 sec.


I have the same problem its defenitly a problem with the lcd monitor not with the graphics card nor the pc. I hooked up the digital and afterwards the vga connection both had the same result. 1 s perfect screen all visible but than black. pushing the on/off or standby button again shortly 1s the display works than it blanks. Did the same test while connected to a dvd player via the composite video... same problem . Since the previous posts are that old and without a solution I guess there is no hope in getting it fixed.
