Syncmaster 2232BW blank screen

I have Samsung Syncmaster 2232BW which has been great until today, now whenever i switch it on it displays properly for approx 2 seconds and then goes blank. If i press the menu button the menu comes up very faint as if there is no lighting from the back. switching the monitor off and on produces the same effect (picture for 2 seconds and then blank)
Does anybody have any ideas about this?

SOURCE: screen goes bank after 2 seconds even if powder light is on

i just finished repairing a 20 inch acer monitor that had the same issue.... you have to take it apart and examine the power supply side of the monitor. there are capacitors that go bad on that board. you can tell be feeling the tops of them... the feel rounded. replace the capacitors and put it back together and it will work fine

Sounds like you may have had a power surge.??
Disconnect power and signal input.
Turn the unit off for 20 minutes or so. Check the outlet against another device. ( Light )
Turn unit on without connection to PC video.
If you get a no signal, you good to go . Reconnect. If you continue to get a flashing light on power button,
Check warranty, get it back to Samsung for repair.
Hope this has helped

SOURCE: My Samsung SyncMaster T220 does not display

m_r_murphy, The T220 may have developed an internal ac to dc "switch-mode-power-supply / CCFL inverter supply" power problem an you may need to need to have it repaired, Look into warranty or outside technician to refurbish the unit's SMPS/inverter!!! From your description, I believe that the SMPS is in "partial shutdown" mode!!! (no 12 to 14v dc) to power-up the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" that enable you to see the text and graphics that you already know are being displayed on your lcd panel!!! (+5vdc or 3.3vdc rail still alive!!!) You have "black screen" symptom!!! NOT BLANK n BLACK screen!!! There are lots of DIY videos on YOUTUBE to help you decide if you can attempt a cheap (<$20usd) repair to your unit. Do some reading in my old fixya profile (louie12fix) and visit some of the links you find there. Because your T220 isn't any different than any other brand of CCFL back-lit lcd display in it's basic design and operation you should be able to fix it. Get back to me lmistyrel on aim or do additional comment to this original post here on fixya with info on your next step to repair this unit.
All the other ccfl back-lit lcd monitor tech's on fixya already know what's wrong inside your unit!! Do your research first!! Bye for now, 12fixlouie

Seems that you may have the wrong type of video selection theres a button for auto sensing the type of connection. if your video cable is blue then you have an analog connection, white video cable is a digital connection you just need to ensure that the monitor is set to the proper selection.

I have Syncmaster 2232bw. When I first switch it on it flashes for about 1 minute before it stopsa flashing. After that it runs fine until I switch off and it cools. Is this the backlight dying?


This happened with my 2232bw also. The problem was that the 5 820uF capacitors that had burnt out so I replaced them with 5 1000uF capacitors and it's now working like a dream.
Hope This Helps

I would follow the self-test below. If you see the same issue in the test screen then your monitor has lost it's sync and would need a board replaced.

If it dosn't appear during the test, then you might want to test it on another PC.

Self-Test Feature Check
1. Turn off both your computer and the monitor.
2. Unplug the video cable from the back of the computer.
3. Turn on the monitor.
If the monitor is functioning properly, you will see a box in the illustration below.

This box appears during normal operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
4. Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable; then turn on both your computer and the monitor.

If your monitor screen remains blank after using the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.

Sounds like the invertor board in the monitor is bad or the LCD screen has had it and needs replacing.
