Laptop monitor went black

This could mean one of two things--your backlight has failed (can you see letters dimly by really looking closely at the screen?)
Your LCD screen has failed and must be replaced. Of course, it could be the inverter on the screen itself that has failed.
Try this--hook up an external monitor. So you see your work? If so, you screen has a problem. If not, then it's your video card/motherboard.

Dim monitar with flickering screen


The problem can be caused by 1 of 2 things either your power supply is going out or the backlight bulbs are going out. The most likely cause is the power supply. If you are willing to do a little soldering you should be able to do the repair. If you go to our web site at: We have a section on monitor repair. Look under the Samsung 930B it is the same as your monitor.
If you don't want to do it yourself we do offer a repair service, email me if you are in need of that.

I hope this helps.

Optiquest Q9

I had this problem with my Q9 and I was glad to find the FixYa website with help. But I will offer more detailed info for novices to make sure you find the capacitors. First of all, it is not easy trying to find out how to open the monitor up! First, set it down flat on it's face, being careful not to scratch the screen. Pop off the cap that covers the stand mount to the screen. You might also want to remove the base by squeezing the bottom tabs to the middle and pushing them out. Once the base cover is removed, you will see the 6 screws holding the base arm to the screen. Remove those and the arm will come off. Now, on the bottom right, there is a beveled slot where you can fit a flat bladded screw driver to start to snap open the case. Move around the case separating it carefully until it is completely un-snapped. Unplug the speaker cable (mine gave me some trouble but I worked it side to side and it finally let go). You can push the videop cable through the the back case to get the case out of the way. Once you have removed the back half of the case you will not immediately see the offending capacitors. You will need to remove 4 phillips screws holding down a metal shield on the power board. You may also have to remove some metal tape covering 2 of the screws. When the screws and tape are removed, you will need to slide the metal shield to the right to release it from a 3 pin connector that the two boards. Be careful that you don't damage that connector. Lift up on it a little and slide it left until the connector is disconnected. Now you can see the capacitors. I only had to replace the 3 bulging ones and that fixed my problem as well. Thanks all for your helpful comments in saving me money on a new monitor!!

Case open, looking for bad solder

This is how to check what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Firstly, power on both CPU and monitor. After it went white, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not 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 or any image, there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be 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 burn 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.

Monitor isn't working

just replacing the fuse should help. There are two of them on the inverter board. depending on which one is blown will give you 2 different issues. One will cause the screen to flash content perfectly for two seconds and then drop out. the other will be really dark if can see any picture at all,

Monitor dark

I had a similar problem with this monitor, mine was dim all the time to the point you cant use it, but the MENU icon was bright as new... also if cable was unplugged the box would float around as normal.... anyway I fixed it by taking it all apart and pushing in the socketed chip.. it clicked like it moved, I also pushed on the variable resistors on the power supply... now it works!!! First time since it quite working long time ago
