My 3 yr old Samsung 226bw strobes when switched on

I have the same problem as another user on here. My 3 yr old Samsung 226bw strobes like crazy when my mac is switched on or woken after a long sleep. The strobing is getting longer every day, at present lasting around 5 mins. When it finally stops flickering the picture is still perfect. Is it gonna blow? Do I need to get something replaced? Thanks for any help.

Colinfaver, I think a visit to YOUTUBE and conduct a search for longer vid clips of "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" for monitors that suffer from the "black screen of death" syndrome and what internal electronic components fail and how to visually locate them on a "switch-mode-power-supply" and possibly replace them with new good ones and with a little luck end up with a working monitor. Your 226BW is SICK, and will probably do same if connected to a different PC with same ambient room temperature. Yes, problem with SMPS/CCFL inverter supply getting a bit tired!! If this was of help to you, please rate on fixya, and do return comment. 12fixlouie Bye for now.

Have a 226bw 3 yrs old. first started flickering like an old movie and now is mostly black and little flickering upper right side...is it worth fixing? thanx


To have repaired by a reapir shop will not be worth it, DIY may be.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

226bw power light turns on but no signal that it is working


sarahmatheso, If you know for sure pc boots to win-desktop, then and only then turn-on your Samsung 226bw. Do you see any ICONS when holding bright flashlight 1 inch from screen and at several different angles. If 226bw "switch-mode-power-supply" is in partial shutdown, then you might see a very faint image on the lcd panel. If SMPS is in full shutdown mode you won't see anything. If warranty is valid option, I suggest you call Samsung. No warranty you will need to investigate repair options that you will find in my fixya profile. Your "BLACK and BLANK?? screen Samsung isn't any different than any other brand in it's basic operation. Follow website leads in profile to understand what may be the cause of black screen symptom. I just clued-in a guy the other day and he repaired his unit for less than $6 in parts. Sarah, Do a comment to this posting if you can't reach my fixya profile, or you don't understand the options you have after doing some research. 12fixlouie on fixya

What about the blue circle LED on the power button ? still blinking or not ?
For the record I've had some problems with this screen too, sometime I had to unplug and replug my Video Card (and the DVI Cable) and everything was back to normal

Hope it helped you

Most likely a digital processing error, since it happens on multiple inputs. Service Time.

Shouldn't happen on a <2 Yr old component.

Movie on monitor


Hi, Normally I would suggest that you first lower your laptop's screen resolution, refresh rate and color quality and verify that you have enabled the external monitor or dual view in your Display Property Settings as well as the Fn key + F?. However, this kind of problem should not exist with an LCD Widescreen monitor with specs and features as your Samsung 226BW. If trying the reco on the first paragraph and you still have no movie display (but all other laptop display shows), perhaps it is a problem with the Samsung 226BW. To my knowledge, this particular brand/model uses no less than 3 different panel display, some not as good as the others. Verify that you have an original Samsung panel display in your Samsung monitor by looking at the sticker at the back of the screen, it should say Model: 226BW [R] S. If it says A or even a C, then perhaps the display panel is not living to its specs/claimed capacities. You of course can request a replacement from your dealer and cite your problem but insist that it be an "S". Most instances (but not always) an "S" would mean panel screen by Samsung, "A" by AU Optronics and "C" by CMO. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
