Samsung 226BW 22" LCD wont turn on and flickers a blue light

MY Samsung 226BW 22" LCD monitor was working fabulous for over a year, untill one morning I turned it on and just the blue light on the power button would flicker on and off. No display however from the screen. It frequently makes a high pitched noise. I really dont have money to buy a new display. Is there any way to "fix" this?

Hello cstafford35,

Your monitor has a very common problem. The internal power supply has blown a part called a capacitor. If you are comfortable working with electronics and with soldering I can talk you thru the diag/repair. If you are not ready to tackle that we also offer a repair service, about $30 plus shipping for your model. Let me know if you want to try fixing it yourself and we can go from there. The repair will require opening the monitor case and replacing from 2 - 5 parts. You can call me at 318-447-9040 if you have questions.

Samsung 226bw visible flickers just after it is turned on


You may have a faulty inverter or loose power inverter connection. OR
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Flicker, even when no signal cable


Hello,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htmYou can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Samsung 226BW 22" LCD has gotten worse!


As stated in your previous post, this can be fixed with some minor electrical and soldering knowledge. If you do not have the knowledge yourself, you will have to find someone to do it for you. The parts wont be expensive, but I do not know what your local repair shop would charge you for the labor.

Nothing else you can do with the exception of buying a new one :-(

What about the blue circle LED on the power button ? still blinking or not ?
For the record I've had some problems with this screen too, sometime I had to unplug and replug my Video Card (and the DVI Cable) and everything was back to normal

Hope it helped you
