Re: monor doesnt do anything
This is the way how to examine where the problem is. You
have to check that you can see the image on screen by shining a flashlight into
the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look
very closely. If you can see the icons (Power on both cpu and monitor), there
will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and
check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. It can be easily replaced. If you
cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are some problems
with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself,
check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking
or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering
tool, you better go get a technician to do so.

If it doesn't turn off by holding the power button down for 10 seconds, then it cannot be turned off by the power button alone, like most modern lcd monitors. Most modern monitors goes into standby mode. To completely cut power, you must unplug the power cable.
I've enclosed a link to the install manual for reference. Samsung SyncMaster P2050 User Manual Page 7
I just fixed mine, I am not exactly sure what did it, but I held the power button down while pushing and holding each button for a few seconds after going through each button I unplugged power cable and then plugged it back in and it powered it up and it worked
Hello, Your monitor has a bad power supply board. This happens often on LCD monitors because of the heat buildup in them. If you can solder them go to our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm We have a step by step dis-assembly and repair guide for your monitor. There are several versions of the E173FP some end in b , f, or c so be sure to check your monitor.
I was called to repair similar incident last week. A Compaq box (don't remember the model) with a 'smart' usb keyboard. By this I mean that the keyboard had a row of what I'll call hot buttons. The client had pushed a button with a moon on it causing the monitor to go into sleep mode. I suspect that whatever key you pushed had the same effect.
After plugging a known good monitor into the faulty box I verified that the box was OK. This left me to think the monitor itself had a problem. Plugged the suspect monitor into a known good machine.. and it worked fine!!!
Set machine and monitor to original configuration and still had no video. Decided that the monitor was too smart for its own good and maybe there was something in the monitors menu. Pushed and held the 'menu' button on the monitor for a few seconds and menu comes forward. Green power led also comes on (surprising me) so I powered up the computer and lo and behold the problem is fixed!
Good Day, cutito35;
1. This model is equipped with a keyboard lock feature; this can be mistaken as a no power condition. To unlock the keyboard press and hold the "menu" button on the front panel for 10 seconds. 2. (Power LED may be on after plug in) check for no less than 4.4 volts DC at pin 3 of PC9A21 on the Power PCB, if low or missing replace PC9A21 part # 268P058020.
2.This model is also equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source) 1. Shutdown at power with self diagnosis error 2-2. Check for open fuses F9A04 and F9A05 part # 283P144080 on the +24 and -24 volt lines. If the fuses are open the convergence output circuit would be suspect. 2. Shutdown at power with self diagnosis error 2-1. At power on check for 12-volts DC at connector KH pin 8, if missing check IC9C51 part # 270P990010 and L9C52 part # 441D009020 on the Signal PCB. Good Luck, big IRISH.
