My LCD monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 214T) starts flashing very badly and there doesn't seem to be a way to fix this. I've tried to turn of/off the monitor / update the display driver / restart the machine.

Hi, my samsung syncmaster 214T starts up and flickers hard permanently. I can do everything, change resolution,refresh rate and the monitor responds but it does not stop flickering. Is it a power supply...


Hello,

Flashing or flickering is a common indication of failing capacitors in the power supply board. The fix is very simple and just requires replacing 5 capacitors on the board. They will need to be soldered. Here is a link to a repair guide for the Samsung 214T units. http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/samsung-214t-repair/

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

My Samsung SyncMaster 215tw stays in power saving mode with the blue power button flashing and won't turn on.


I'd verify all the cable connections first.

You could be dealing with two different problems, bad monitor, or a bad videocard/pc.

I'd swap the monitor out to verify that the computer is working as it should first. Once you determine that the PC is in fact fine, my suggestion would be to change the resolution on the PC to a lower setting then normal. Once that is done Plug the Samsung SyncMaster 215tw back into the pc and see if it powers on.

If it does not, i'd check the cables and swap them with something else to make sure thats not the problem. If you have another PC available, i'd test the monitor on that PC to make sure that it is not the issue.

After all that you'll come to the determination on what the problem is. Sadly, if the LCD is bad you'll have to replace it as they are extremely expensive to repair and generally not worth it.

However, i'd verify if it is under warranty or not, you never know! you might be able to get it fixed for free :D

Samsung 214t syncmaster flickering


Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you aregood 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 workfine.We just posted a repair guide showing how to remove the case ansreplace the parts. The capacitors do need to be installed with thecorrect + and -connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one thesame 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.

How do you open up a Samsung 214T


you have to pry it open with a small flathead screwdriver.

Almost all of them are invisible, so jab your screwdriver in there and pry it sideways until you hear a pop.

You will not be ableto do this without some plastic being deformed.
