Question about Samsung SyncMaster 175V 17" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Quickly after I turn on my Samsung SyncMaster 175v flat screen computer monitor it blacks out. Is there a simple fuse I can repalce? or is the problem more serious? The color/resolution is normal for the short time I can see what is on screen, but then I loose all picture within less than a minute. It was working perfectly until suddenly this problem. I would like to keep this monitor if there is an easy fix. I looked on youtube without any success in finding out if something could be done without a service call. Thanks for any insight you may have. Linda

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen blacked out or stopped working, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

Its the capacitors on the backlight power supply. Samsung installed crappy ones and they blow up after a year or two. Change out the caps and you're good to go

Dyderich, Yes, You should read up on all the causes of LCD monitor failures!! Your symptom will be among the top three cause/complaint of failures. LCD units can be repaired. If you have never used a soldering pencil, digital volt meter, DMM or Oscilloscope, then you should keep yur gruby fingers on the outside of the monitor. Your monitor's "switch-mode-power-supply" and the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-tube's" and the "inveter" power supply that lights up the tubes will need to be evaluated(trouble shoot) by a TECHNICIAN who knows all there is to know about CCFT's and what it takes to get them to light up!!! Or you can trade up to a younger model, and repair/refurbish the old and keep as a spare. You could also see if SAMSUNG has some sort of swapout program for newly refurbished same model monitors? ? ? Check with a Samsung dealer and or their website. Bye for now. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel

Repair samsung SyncMaster 175v lcd flat screen went black right after it start

usually that is an indication that the back lights on your monitor is not illuminating your screen.... here's a test start up your machine and look at the monitor real close.... or shine a flash light at it... you may see your desktop afintly... which means your monitor may need a new inverter board or possible to change some capacitors on it.

you can also try another monitor just to make sure it is ur monitor which is problematic

All I get is a white screen

copied from

I have a Samsung Syncmaster 175v Mfg Oct '03 displaying the __ White Screen . I removed the screws on the back , removed base stand, separated case with flat screwdriver starting at bottom, unplugged the small wire to the panel menu buttons , removed metal cover from back of LCD. Now you can see the powerboard \ inverterboard combo and the attached video signalboard. Follow the 30 wire plug to the LCD screen, the 30 wire plug goes under a metal panel , remove the 3 small screws securing the panel and you will see the hidden LCD screenboard. Very close to where the 30 wire plug attaches to this screenboard on the Rightside you will see with a magnifying glass a SurfaceMounted Fuse named F1 with a value? of "K". On my LCD the fuse tested with a volt-ohmmeter to be Open or Blown. The right thing to do would be to replace the fuse however I acquired my LCD from a trashcan / dumpster so I stretched a drop of solder connecting both sides of the fuse. Now I do not have the protection from power failures and surges that the fuse could offer but upon reassembly my screen works like new again .
PS : i'm not an expert at anything...x'cept maybe dumpster diving. God Bless
