Question about Samsung 226BW Monitor
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?
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.

Contact Samsung if you are within the three year warranty period. I did and they are repairing mine free of charge (including shipping).
