Question about Samsung SyncMaster 214T 21.3" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Samsung 216BW I have a 216BW that has a damaged LCD screen due to impact. I am interested in replacing the LCD with one from a used monitor. I'd like to buy a monitor that has bad power supply but a good TFT LCD. What are the typical symptoms of a bad power supply? Maybe flickering? Won't power on? Powers on briefly but shuts down? Thanks for the assistance.

No power in my samsung 216bw monitor

Look for bad caps, it uses the same board as 223ww as shown in my albums.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I have 3 samsung monitors and all of them went black within weeks of each other and they are only 2 years old, whats wrong

That is about right time for the monitors to fail, look for bad caps in the power supply first and report back so we can guide you further, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors due to badc caps:
They are made to fail, even MAC uses cheaply made parts.

Broken LCD

To me it looks terrible and have no idea to repair it. I don't think you can fix it. How did get the screen broken? I used to repair a monitor from Dell. The CCFL lamps inside are broken. My screen is still OK. I would suggest that a new screen is a better choice for you if you have enough budget.
Thank you
