Oct 23, 2009- This is how it went for me..I have a Samsung SYNCMASTERsamsung syncmaster 953bw - 2.gif 2053BW. I leave my monitor on and let it hybernate when I shut down PC. I'm 3 months outside of my warranty. Two weeks ago something started happening. I boot PC and video doesn't come up for 10 minutes, and when it came up it worked perfect. VC/Monitor/MB?? It became 20 minutes and ...now..I have the analog/digital box in top left screen, power light on monitor flashing, no menu available on monitor and none of the other buttons work for anything. I test the monitor on Laptop..nothing(same as above)..I break out the old(working) monitor from deep within the closet. Plug it in and I'm up and running. So...

HOW TO OPEN A SYNCMASTER 2053BW

NO SCREWS!!! Assuming that the stand mount has been pulled out..The seam around the screen frame is where you start. The frame has the prongs, the back cover has what the prongs slip over.The frame is coming off first! I got the side to open by finger, then used a small standard screwdriver to pry ever so gently(lifting frame from rearcover). Leave the power button assembly on the frame, pull wire only a little to relax any tension..you get about 3/4" in extra taped to panel. The hard part is done.;) Still holding the frame...Now lift the panel (where the power button assembly wiring goes under panel) with the power housing that is under it as a whole and you will see where the powerbuttonassemble detaches.Remove frame. Now..holding edges of panel into back cover, lift and flip the whole thing over and place panel face down on a perfectly flat surface..a towel on my desk works. Lift and remove back cover.Your now looking at the back of the board housing. The ribon is simple, on the panel end of the ribon, squeez the outer clips together and slide it away against the panel..The secondary tin plate is removable, two clips super close to where the sets of wires come around the housing and into the panel.Unhook the 4 plugs(pink inside/blue outside)...Now lift the power housing off of the panel. The big board has the power. One screw to remove a ground plate first. Two screws to remove power board. Pics from phone.56ec44b.jpg

Reassemble but DO NOT re-snap the frame into place....yet... Test it! There is a reason the caps got hot in the first place, therfore it has a good chance of happening again. This is not fullproof...but.....mine has been on now for close to 6 hours with no glitches whatsoever. So I have resnapped mine back together. I hope you can too. Oct 23, 2009- I must also add that this is one of the best producing monitors I have ever seen...in 60hz. The clarity is top notch. If you purchase one get the extended warranty. FYI...I paid $4.00 for those caps.

I would like to thank the author of the above instructions on how to disassemble a samsung LCD.. i had a 953bw that was not coming out of power saving mode, took it apart, and lo and behold, there were two capacitors bulging.. replaced them, and the monitor has been on for almost 24 hours now, goes into power saving mode, everything is fine, the caps cost me $3.50 and the soldering iron cost me $7 considering i got this monitor for free from someone who was going to junk it, that isnt bad at all.. dont be afraid to look inside sometimes to see if you can see any burnt out components, and think twice before you throw away that $100+ monitor. if its out of warranty period, it cant hurt anything to just take it apart and look.. thank you so much for posting this, it made my day

    THANK YOU SO MUCH AMPS-N-CAPS your instructions are spot on for a syncmaster 953bw, i got a broken one for free, took it apart, found the blown capacitors, and $11 later i have a really nice LCD screen to replace my huge power hogging CRT. its been running now for almost 24 hours, i havent turned it off, it goes into power saving mode and comes right back up, no problem! for a monitor that wouldnt even show the screen, its awesome! i would highly recommend that if your monitor is out of warranty period anyways, take it apart and see if you cant figure it out! basically i got an over $100 monitor for $11! THANK YOU!

  • deathtoll May 19, 2010

    and here it is, more than a month later, and the monitor has been running pretty much nonstop since i fixed it, i dont think i have powered it down even once. thank you!

Power light will not come on. It is pluged in and has power.


Look for bad caps with domed tops, and should replace them in a set.
http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/Repair-Kit-Samsung-SyncMaster-953bw-LCD-Monitor-Caps-P1660391.aspx

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), 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/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I am trying to remove the base from my samsung syncmaster 953bw the bottom of the stand comes away easily by removing the screw but the part which slots into the monitor will not come out. How do I remove...


I have the same problem as the original poster does. I have no idea how to get the base/stand actually out/separated from the monitor. I have tried pulling pretty hard and it wont budge.

Hi I have a samsung syncMaster 920N The screen has suddenly gone blank - the power light is showing. I have a second identical monitor and have swapped cables but no difference Is it a repairable fault?...


This happened to me a few months back. I removed all cables and left it for 2 days. Switched back on on it worked fine. That is until yesterday when half the screen went black. I found that my driver was out of date. I have undated the driver but have decided to leave it off and unplugged for another day.
You could try this. You say you have another monitor, i would suggest using it for a few days and the try the old one again.

Monitor turns on for less than a second, then off. I bought a 19" Samsung LCD monitor (953BW) about 10 months ago and the first time I used it, it would only switch on for a split second and shut down. ...


Although the OP was 2009. I had this problem.

I simply replaced the power board. Which I bought from ebay for $20AUD.
It was real easy to remove as well. Just have a look for youtube videos.

Fixed!

Samsung 953BW blue power lights just flashes when turned on nothing visible on screen with no computer connected


Hello,

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.
