Re: 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

On bootup monitor goes blank and only the green light blinks. Bad monitor?

Possibly. Try it on a different computer and then if it works you know it's a bad monitor.

Monitor will turn on but stay on for only a second.

make sure the monitor cables are firmly connected at the monitor side, also try different cables, if it didn't help.

Dim Monitor

I had the same problem, took it all apart and pushed on the socketed chip, it made a click noise and it works now. I also pushed on everything including the variable resistors. First time it's worked since it quit working!!

Monitor dark

I had a similar problem with this monitor, mine was dim all the time to the point you cant use it, but the MENU icon was bright as new... also if cable was unplugged the box would float around as normal.... anyway I fixed it by taking it all apart and pushing in the socketed chip.. it clicked like it moved, I also pushed on the variable resistors on the power supply... now it works!!! First time since it quite working long time ago
