Samsung 940bf-screen stays black

I have a samsung 940BF pc screen and latley the power button just keeps on flashing while the screen still stays black(it also makes a clicking sound when the light shuts off).It used to start up after a few minutes but now it got worse and it still stays black after a couple of hours. Can this problem somehow be fixed or do I have to buy a new screen?

Hello,

Your monitor is having a problem with the power supply. Because of the small spaces in the monitor case heat builds up and causes parts called capacitors to blow. If you can solder you should be able to do the repair yourself. Go to our web pageSamsung 940bf-screen stays black - 2.gif at:
www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and look at the pictures and repair guides. Open your monitor and look for parts that look like the pictures. Replace any that you see and your monitor should be back operational.Be sure to install the new parts with the polarity stripe on the side going the same direction as the bad ones came out. You will need to replace them with a high quality part with high temp value (105c). If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

    Hello,

    You have a power supply dieing in the monitor. There are parts called capacitors that blow out because of the heat trapped in the monitor case. When they blow out you get the type problems you have either no power or a blinking power light. If you go to our web site at www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and look at the pictures you will see what I am describing. You can open the back of you monitor and replace any of them that look like the pictures and you should be back going again. Be sure to resolder the new ones with the stripe on the side going the same way as the stripe on the bad one. Also be sure to use capacitors with a high heat value, the values of the caps will be printed on the side of the bad ones. We carry them in stock if you need to order them, make a list of the bad ones and email me for pricing. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service $35 + return shipping.

    I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

Hello, I have a Samsung 2493hm monitor, earlier this week I turned on my computer to see nothing. My screen remained black. The power button stays on and it never cuts off, so i'm thinking it's a...


With my Samsung 2493hn, I used HDMI. Use auto detect, on front next to secondary power. Not the main power switch on back of unit. Windows 10, click notification button lower right on Taskbar. Click on Project, then choose which option.
If when you power on Monitor without white squares with HDMI, ANALOG, DIGITAL printed in each then yes sounds like back light.

Samsung monitor picture clicks off after 2-5 seconds...


Yes, It sounds like the backlight inverter circuit is shutting down. No inverter power, no backlight. On some monitors the inverter circuit will shot circuit the power power supply which makes the power light flash on some it just kills the backlight. You can usually check with a flashlight. Hold the flashlight pointed at the screen and see if you can see any of the icons or background picture. If you can then it is the backlight circuit or backlight tubes, usually the circuit.

Acer One pc notebook black screen?!


That is a problem of BIOS. U need to reset your BIOS.
Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery
The AA1 has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore. It's only meant for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.

Follow every step carefully!

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.
