    I'm sorry it took so long to post my results. I replaced the capacitor and now my monitor works like new!!! The cost was less than $1.00 and took less the 40 minutes! Thank you SO much!!!

Dear showmetoo99,

Surely My Samsung 2493hm monitor quit working after a pow - favicon.icofavicon.icowiki-favicon-sharpened.pngoneriot-favicon.icoyou can fix it yourself with a very low cost.

I will explain how to:


  • Open the case of the LCD
basically in all LCD monitors have two circuit boards (power supply board and system board)
  • After you open you will see the two boards are

  • You see a board that has a socket for the power source. wrote that the board we're looking for (power supply board)
  • Remove all cables connected to the board and take out the board. (get noted before you unplug it)
  • Now you see it components on board, we looking for capacitor.(see picture below)

    My Samsung 2493hm monitor quit working after a pow - 7a91ba9.jpg="h_mi">Looking for damaged capacitors, physically you will see a capacitor on the top like a bloated (see picture below)
7a91ba9.jpg
  • Replace the damaged capacitor with the same value that you can see on the surface of the capacitor. (In this step you need any soldering tool)
My advice: replace capacitors with higher voltage, like 10V replace with 16V or 25V will be fine.

It seems like im having some issue with my syncmaster2493 monitor. it will black out and once i wiggle the power cord it will come back on. any help will be apprecaited


Hello,


Your power supply board is failing and when you wiggle the cord it is turning it on and off until it finally starts up. There are parts called capacitors that start failing and it will cause intermittent power issues such as slow to show picture, flashing power button, wavy or flashing picture. The board can be repaired and the monitor will be as good as new. Here is a picture of the power supply with the parts circled that need to be replaced.

Hello,

The Samsung 2493HM monitor are known to have an issue with the power supply. When the power supply fails you get the 'no power' or 'slow to show picture' problems like you are having. The board can be repaired and the monitor will be just like new again. This is what the power supply board looks like:

If this happened after a storm, the monitor may have been subjected to a power surge, which unfortunately might have killed it.

If you have another monitor (or a friend who has one) try plugging that other monitor into your computer. If the second monitor works, yours will need to be replaced as the input was probably destroyed by the power surge.

If the second monitor also doesn't work, there may be a problem with your computer, most likely with the power supply (this is the part most often damaged by a power surge). You may want to have it examined by a professional computer repair person at that point.

Hope this is helpful!

On light flickers instead of being solid blue and monitor will not come on


Power off the computer leave the monitor on then go to the computer power button once computer is off and unplug the cord press and hold the power cord down for 5 seconds you should see a blink of light then plug the computer back in and reboot the machine. If this does not work get another monitor to check the video card borrow one to see if it works with a mock monitor if that does not work then it is your video card that is the issue and not the monitor. Change out the video card. if the mock monitor works fine then your original monitor is broken and will need to be replaced.

Hello,

Your power supply is going out. LCD monitors have a common issue. The heat buildup in the in the cases cause parts called capacitors to overheat and bulge. When they bulge out the don't operate properly and cause the power supply to not start up correctly or not at all. First thing check the warranty, Most Samsung units have a 3year parts and labor warranty. If it is out of warranty then repair it yourself. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. Check out our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com We don't have your exact monitor but you should be able to look at other Samsung guide we have posted and see the parts that need to be replaced. Open your case and replace any capacitors that are bulging and you should be back going again. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for you unit, check our site for details.

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

No picture; no operation except flashing blue lcd light.


Look at the power supply first, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
