    I have the same problem but from what I can find in my research this is caused by a faulty inverter that controls the LCD backlight...

    Once the monitor goes black, if I turn the power off and then back on, it restarts long enough that I can read the screen. The black again.

    How do I repair the inverter????????

Go to Start, Control Panel, Power Options and change your monitor setting to never turn off. If you do leave your monitor on all the time then you should set up a screen saver.

I'd suspect a fault with the power board.
It may not be viable to replace, unless you can find someone experienced to disassemble and diagnose the fault on this board.

Sumsung 930b goes dim,and flickers after about 3 min.


This sounds like the inverter has gone bad. If the bulb were bad only, you would see a faint image on the screen with a flashlight.

The problem is on this monitor, it will probably cost about $100 or so to take it to a shop to get it fixed, and that is nearing the cost of a new monitor.

If you are a little bit handy, and can disassemble the monitor, you can replace the inverter. The hardest thing about this, is getting the monitor faceplate open. Just use something firm and softer, such as a nylon spudger (this is something you can find online) or you can carefully use a thin scredriver. You just have to be careful, those cases are really tight.

Here is a good guide for general ideas on how it is done.

After 15 -20 min my monitor goes blank


This could indicate a problem with the graphics card. Take the card out and clean it, then clean the slot that it fits into. (I normally use a small dry paintbrush).

Replace the card, making sure that you push it down gently but firmly and ensure that the plastic clip has gone back correctly that hold the card in place. Rescrew the card back to the casing correctly and reboot.

Hopefully this will resolve your problem. If it does not, to determine whether or not your graphics card is faulty. Change the monitor lead over to the onboard graphics port instead of the agp/pci port and reboot. If the monitor works properly with no problems, then you have a bad graphics card.

I hope this helps.

Hi
I repair monitors
Based on other models , it sounds like you are having a powerboard-inverter issue.
It just so happens that I hjust got one in that's doing that, I should know in a day or two (maybe sooner) what the whole story on this model is.
Good timing !!??
