Question about Samsung SyncMaster 910T 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen black Good Day! Thanks for reading, I am having trouble with my monitor. One of the kids left it on ater using it and when I came in to log on I moved the mouse and nothing happened. The computer was on, but screen black. The green power indication button was on. Tried to turn the monitor off but the power button had no effect. Unplugged the monitor, waited a minute and then plugged it back in again. The green power light comes on immediately but screen still black. All of buttons on monitor have no effect on the display. Plugged in second monitor and it works fine, therefore no problem with the computer or video card. (although the second monitor is a crt) This makes me think there is something wrong with the power supply circuit on the monitor itself. I need help, if you have any idea what it could be. Or if you know where I can get circuit schematics for this monitor. Greatly appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks Bill

Re: screen black

Bill, It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems. With the computer on and the monitor power LED green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. Depending on the monitor this is usually and economically repairable problem. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

Good Day, I have an LG Flatron W2442PA. The screen keeps dimming, re-adjusting the brightness etc. Can you please tell me how to fix this?

Power capacitor problem or failing board in the monitor. Best solution is to get it checked out by a professional. I'm assuming you have already tried this monitor on another computer or laptop? If not, try that first, if it then works ok, check the DVI lead and the graphics card on the computer you are using it on

I own a Westinghouse L1975NW, Power light Green, Image on screen just very dark, It fit the bill for the common backlight issues that this monitor seems to have. So I did the repairs, (Bought the kit-...

Did you recheck the MOSFETs? You will need a set of test lamps to test the inverter to see if it is the inverter or the lamp assemblies. I am surprised that the kit only contains 2 caps, it should have at least 4 caps, 2 each for the 5v and the 18vdc power supply section. Take the DC reading on the caps to see what you have, take the reading WITHOUT turn on the monitor (the power supply is running al the time), then turn on the montior to see if it maintains the output voltages.

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps for you.

Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
