My samsung syncmaster bx2031 will not turn on.

I know this monitor is less than a year old. Sometimes it turns right on with the computer. Other times it doesn't do anything. I tried to unplug cable going to the computer and only have the power cable plugged in and the monitor still won't turn on. It doesn't actually have a physical button. Only a sensor that is supposed to turn it on. Help!!!

SOURCE: My 19 samsung computer lcd monitor problem

I had the same problem...apparently the Syncmasters have some caps that are known to go bad pretty often. They will show visible swelling on the top with the slits. If they are flat they are probably good. The 820uF was too hard to find so I used a 1000uF with the same voltage. I had two caps blown on two different monitors so be sure to check them all. Hope this helps. Check out pics on BadCaps.com

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

SOURCE: difficulty getting monitor to display when computer powers up

The Problem may be due to the defective inverter unit inside the monitor. Dry to resolder if any dry joint on the inverter PCB or replace the inverter board.

SOURCE: Syncmaster paower button blinking and no display

First of all plug another monitor to the VC on your PC and do the same for the SamSung"I over heat"SyncMaster2 053BW.
Oct 23, 2009 - This is how it went for me..I have a Samsung SYNCMASTER2.gif 2053BW. I leave my monitor on and let it hybernate when I shut down PC. I'm 3 months outside of my warranty. Two weeks ago something started happening. I boot PC and video doesn't come up for 10 minutes, and when it came up it worked perfect. VC/Monitor/MB?? It became 20 minutes and ...now..I have the analog/digital box in top left screen, power light on monitor flashing, no menu available on monitor and none of the other buttons work for anything. I test the monitor on Laptop..nothing(same as above)..I break out the old(working) monitor from deep within the closet. Plug it in and I'm up and running. So...

HOW TO OPEN A SYNCMASTER 2053BW

NO SCREWS!!! Assuming that the stand mount has been pulled out..The seam around the screen frame is where you start. The frame has the prongs, the back cover has what the prongs slip over.The frame is coming off first! I got the side to open by finger, then used a small standard screwdriver to pry ever so gently(lifting frame from rearcover). Leave the power button assembly on the frame, pull wire only a little to relax any tension..you get about 3/4" in extra taped to panel. The hard part is done.;) Still holding the frame...Now lift the panel (where the power button assembly wiring goes under panel) with the power housing that is under it as a whole and you will see where the powerbuttonassemble detaches.Remove frame. Now..holding edges of panel into back cover, lift and flip the whole thing over and place panel face down on a perfectly flat surface..a towel on my desk works. Lift and remove back cover.Your now looking at the back of the board housing. The ribon is simple, on the panel end of the ribon, squeez the outer clips together and slide it away against the panel..The secondary tin plate is removable, two clips super close to where the sets of wires come around the housing and into the panel.Unhook the 4 plugs(pink inside/blue outside)...Now lift the power housing off of the panel. The big board has the power. One screw to remove a ground plate first. Two screws to remove power board. Pics from phone.56ec44b.jpg

Reassemble but DO NOT re-snap the frame into place....yet... Test it! There is a reason the caps got hot in the first place, therfore it has a good chance of happening again. This is not fullproof...but.....mine has been on now for close to 6 hours with no glitches whatsoever. So I have resnapped mine back together. I hope you can too. - I must also add that this is one of the best producing monitors I have ever seen...in 60hz. The clarity is top notch. If you purchase one get the extended warranty. FYI...I paid $4.00 for those caps.

SOURCE: Samsung SyncMaster 940n monitor that turns on then goes black

rcpips, You may need to replace one or possibly 5 -8 aluminum can "electrolytic filter capacitors" on the "switch-mode-power-supply/CCFL inverter board. If, as you say "works for 5 or 6 seconds" then that means that fuse is good. Another thing you will need to inspect SMPS board for is "cold" "frosty looking" solder joints where the components (surface mount or through hole) are soldered to the copper circuit traces. May need large magnifying glass or low power inspection microscope to locate them. Resolder any that look bad or loose. Some solder joints have thinner than "hair" thermal fractures that can also cause YOUR TYPE OF SYMPTOM!! PARTS: digikey. mouser. newark. and possibly Radio Shack. If buying filter capacitors, make sure they are rated 105 deg C only!! NOT 85 deg C!!! If caps need to be replaced (swollen, leaky) be sure to tell us the brand name you find installed on your unit! CAPXON, ELITE, JUN-FU are just 3 that you don"t want to find in your unit. BAD news if you do!! If DIY suits you, remember to document with "close-up" digital stills your unit tear-down, so you can reassemble unit without any "extra" parts laying on kitchen table!! Filter capacitors are polarized. You put them in + to +, - to -!!! if you put them in backwards they go BOOOOMMM!!! Hope this helps a little. lmistyrel on aim or 12fixlouie at fixya.

Pink and Green Horizontal lines across screen


Normally, horizontal lines on an LCD or LED monitor indicate a bad control board inside the monitor. However, occasionally the problem can be caused by loose or bad cable connections. The only things that you can really do is to disconnect both ends of the monitor cable and reconnect them firmly. Also, you can disconnect the monitor cable completely and just leave the power cable. With only the power cable attached, you can turn the monitor on and off. The monitor should have a "startup screen" or display a message that says something like "Video Cable Disconnected". If the green and pink lines are still present without your computer connected, then the monitor has gone bad. The good news is that Samsung SyncMaster monitors usually carry a 3 year warranty, whereas most monitors only have a 1 year warranty. You may be able to have the monitor replaced at no cost to you if it's less than 3 years old.

Aspire AX1200-U1510A starts but monitor doesn't show anything. Monitor works with an odl Dell.


If an old Dell monitor works with your computer then that monitor has something wrong with it.

Try to plug in the monitor to a wall outlet but do not plug it to your computer. If it still doesn't show anything, then you should replace it. You can contact the manufacturer of the monitor. You might have a warranty for it. They might fix it or replace it with a new one.

I hope this helps.

HP Pavilion Elite m9400f on button flashing, won't start up.


try and pull your add-on cards and reinstall them as well as your memory. make sure that the little switch on the PSU is set to 115v. The clicking sounds like the hard drive, but if you're not getting any error or picture then i don't think that's the case. blow the computer out with compress air, open up the pc and try and start it and make sure that all the fans are spinning.

This is a known symptom of a failure in the power supply board. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to dis-assemble and the unit and then what to look for and replace on the power supply board to bring the unit back to working condition.

OUR sAMSUNG sYNCMASTER 205BW has a red tint in the background and cannot adjust it out.


Hello,

The red or pink tint indicates that the back light florescent bulbs are failing. These bulbs are just like the bulbs in home and office lamps just much much smaller. When the reach the end of life the light output turns from pure white to red because the bulbs are not fully turning on. Check the manufacturer date on the back of the monitor, if its less than 3 years then the monitor is still under warranty. If its older than 3 years then its time to get a new monitor because your is about to fail.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Really don't think fuel pressure is the problem. More than likely it is a crankshaft position sensor or the camshaft position sensor. If you have any kind of an oil leak in the front main seal it could have dripped down onto the crankshaft position sensor and it is not giving a good reading to the PCM (computer) which in turn will throw this code. I have seen this many times being in the business. Below is a description of your DTC (diagnostic trouble code) right out of ALLDATA. If you need testing procedures for those sensors feel free to email me at csautomotivecars@att.net and I will be happy to send you the procedures. I hope this helps and good luck.

i will state the obvious first...u have subbed out the power and vga cables right...to make sure that is not the issue? Then of course the power plug internally - those contacts can go if you have been plugging unplugging lots... If apart, you will need to check continuity with a multimeter against the plug holes to the board. Likely requires a spot solder - 400deg silver solder. Also make sure it is not your PC or video card that is loose. Good luck!
