Hi there.
unfortunately this is not a driver issue. if possible, test this screen on a different PC/Laptop.
it sounds like a problem with the screen itself - meaning you will have to take it to a service centre, or if its under warrantee - take it to the shop you baught it from.
*** NB note: samsun screens normally carry a guarantee of AT LEAST 3 years, and not only 1 Year.

Samsung Syncmaster 204bw has a red screen


A red or pink tint to the screen indicates that the back light bulbs are failing and are about to burn out. Its time to look for a new monitor.

I have a samsung syncmaster 204bw and sometimes the monitor flashes black for a couple seconds and then comes back on. it will do it and then wont for awhile.


This is an early warning that the inverter board is failing, "powers the back lights behind the screen" eventually it will go. The board must be replaced or repaired.

Describe your samsung syncmaster 204bw Problem: I turn the monitor on, the power button turns blue, the screen remains dark, the image on my Powerbook G4 appears flashes on the screen before it goes black...


Check the power supply DC filter cpas first.
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: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My monitor plugs in blue power button blinks why ?


There is probably a failure of part of the power supply pcb. If the light blinks and the screen is totally dark, this is the likely cause. The usual culprit is decective capacitors on the pcb. See other posts on this subject here. This failure may be intermittant; in other words, it may not always occur.

I have to hit the power button six times before the screen stays on


Look at the power supply for bad caps with bulging top first, probably the same problem as the other SAMSUNG as shown in my album here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
