Question about Samsung SyncMaster 930B 19" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Possible power supply burnt out

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:
45020
AASH0
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.

Dell e193fp goes blank at times


From the description there are bad solder connections on the power supply board and since the monitor is 7 years old there is a good chance some of the capacitors need to be changed.

Power led blink no display


Sounds like you have a power supply problem.

1. If you have an external power supply (like a laptop has) you could try replacing it.

2. If your mains lead plugs into the monitor directly I would think you have a few capaitors on the internal power supply board burnt out. A competent repair engineer could replace these in about half an hour.

Change the screen resolution. The video card or video display may not be compatible to the supported video setting of the monitor. Try changing the video resolution to a lower setting such as 1024x768 and bit depth to 32 bit.

Monitor : no display and blue led light is blinking


The power supply is the first thing that the 110v electric line goes into. The invertor is the next item past the power supply, or sometimes contained within it. I do not thing monitors are a DIY repair.      First substitute a different monitor to confirm that it is, in deed , the monitor and not the video card.

Blank screen, but has power


It is most likely a backlight that has burnt out or something else of the sort. You will want to call HP Support and explain to them of your troubles.
