Question about Samsung SyncMaster 930B 19" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
So my Sansung 930b just gave a blank screen today and the button led blinks very dimly. From what a few others have posted, it seems this is probably a power issue. I opened up my case and found this on the power board:
2nd picture is a closer look at the chip that burnt. On the other side of the board, there's a small brown smudge from the burn and the outside of the chip is fire scarred. I tried reading the number off the other (hopefully) identical 8 pin chip right nearby but from what I can make out:
Any of those 4's could be A's, 5's S's and 0 O's (and vice versa).
Yeah I took out the plastic, I still can't see the chip # and trying multiple combinations of the above didn't yield anything. I was able to find 1 person selling the IP-35135b power supply but it's reasonably expensive at $55.
Does anyone know if there's another way for me to find and replace just the chip? If not, judging from the picture and a description of the powered on behavior, does it sound like the power supply is the thing to replace? Thanks for your time.
I've been hacking on a few of these monitors at work... we have a bunch that are dead... I have not seen this particular chip burnt (yet), but have been replacing a lot of the capacitors. To confirm the chip ID numbers you were looking at, I saw 4502C & AA5N0, and yes, they're both the same. If it comes to the caps, they should all have a flat top... if any are domed or black or sooty on the top, that is a good indication it is bad. Hope you had good luck with this. I can/t help with replacing just the chip.

There is more than one flourescent tube in your TV, It could be possible that one after the other has failed, these should usually last a few years depending on usage.
If it is not the tubes then there may be a fault in the backlight inverter although this would more likely show up as a sudden failure.
How old is your TV?
