Question about Samsung SyncMaster 203B LCD Monitor
When I start my computer - which by the way has always worked fine with this monitor until now - the monitor stays black as if in sleep mode - it makes a clicking noise and takes forever to start up - as if it has to warm up before it displays - after a while of playing with the keys - restarting the comp and such - it finally will come on - it will flicker very lightly until it comes on - I have the power always on - no hibernation - I've turned a screen saver on to keep it displaying and I do not turn it off now for fear it will not come on again.
It sounds like 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 the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures 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.
