Question about Samsung 226BW Monitor

2 Answers

Samsung 226BW 22" LCD has gotten worse!

The issue I posted yesterday can be found at http://www.fixya.com/support/t2408130-samsung_226bw_22_lcd_wont_turn_flickers . Yesterday after 3 hours of letting it sit, it finally turned on. This morning I powered on the monitor, and now the blue light isnt even coming on, so it seems like the display is completly shot. Any help?

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 :-(

Maybe a stupid question but have you turned it on and gone around the tv tapping the sides looking for a loose connection, also have you kept the the button pressed in to see if its that , The cable may have been snagged , try wiggling the mains cable and also around the plug , Have you had a look in the plug , are the screws tight , fuse fitting tight? , Is there a socket that plugs into the rear of the tv like a kettle plug?, swap that with a different one .

Hi, I got problem with my 226BW Samsung. Some time it started. The blue light on the monitors blinks (normal) but no picture, also not menu or anything. After a few minutes it blinked shortly and than it...


Sorry, the links you provide does not work. You can post the picture her at FIXYA but it has to be less than 150k in size.
Do you see caps with dome top (not completely flat)?

Have a 226bw 3 yrs old. first started flickering like an old movie and now is mostly black and little flickering upper right side...is it worth fixing? thanx


To have repaired by a reapir shop will not be worth it, DIY may be.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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.

Samsung 226BW screen takes a long time to show anything


This model may have defective capacitors in the power supply. I normally replace the 2 or 4 bulging caps and normal function is restored.

226bw power light turns on but no signal that it is working


sarahmatheso, If you know for sure pc boots to win-desktop, then and only then turn-on your Samsung 226bw. Do you see any ICONS when holding bright flashlight 1 inch from screen and at several different angles. If 226bw "switch-mode-power-supply" is in partial shutdown, then you might see a very faint image on the lcd panel. If SMPS is in full shutdown mode you won't see anything. If warranty is valid option, I suggest you call Samsung. No warranty you will need to investigate repair options that you will find in my fixya profile. Your "BLACK and BLANK?? screen Samsung isn't any different than any other brand in it's basic operation. Follow website leads in profile to understand what may be the cause of black screen symptom. I just clued-in a guy the other day and he repaired his unit for less than $6 in parts. Sarah, Do a comment to this posting if you can't reach my fixya profile, or you don't understand the options you have after doing some research. 12fixlouie on fixya

My 3 yr old Samsung 226bw strobes when switched on


colinfaver, I think a visit to YOUTUBE and conduct a search for longer vid clips of "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" for monitors that suffer from the "black screen of death" syndrome and what internal electronic components fail and how to visually locate them on a "switch-mode-power-supply" and possibly replace them with new good ones and with a little luck end up with a working monitor. Your 226BW is SICK, and will probably do same if connected to a different PC with same ambient room temperature. Yes, problem with SMPS/CCFL inverter supply getting a bit tired!! If this was of help to you, please rate on fixya, and do return comment. 12fixlouie Bye for now.

Samsung syncmaster 226BW no backlight


Look for any bulging capacitors, instead of a flat top they will look "pregnant".

If you see any of those then replace them with capacitors of the same UF rating and the voltage needs to be either the same or higher.

If you dont see any bulging capacitors or burnt parts, then its got be the LCD at that point thats not staying on and the cost to replace the LCD is as much if not more then to just get another monitor.

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


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.

Movie on monitor


Hi, Normally I would suggest that you first lower your laptop's screen resolution, refresh rate and color quality and verify that you have enabled the external monitor or dual view in your Display Property Settings as well as the Fn key + F?. However, this kind of problem should not exist with an LCD Widescreen monitor with specs and features as your Samsung 226BW. If trying the reco on the first paragraph and you still have no movie display (but all other laptop display shows), perhaps it is a problem with the Samsung 226BW. To my knowledge, this particular brand/model uses no less than 3 different panel display, some not as good as the others. Verify that you have an original Samsung panel display in your Samsung monitor by looking at the sticker at the back of the screen, it should say Model: 226BW [R] S. If it says A or even a C, then perhaps the display panel is not living to its specs/claimed capacities. You of course can request a replacement from your dealer and cite your problem but insist that it be an "S". Most instances (but not always) an "S" would mean panel screen by Samsung, "A" by AU Optronics and "C" by CMO. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
