Question about Samsung 2693HM LCD TV

1 Answer

Samsung 2693H monitor won't power on, or rather won't display anything. The blue power LED in the bottom right is on, the power button turns the LED on and off (it's getting power) and I've checked the computer and video cables with a second monitor. Just getting a black screen... help :(

    Wow... that was incredibly fast and actually pretty helpful. I haven't had any personal experience with this sort of thing but I pick these kinds of things up very quickly and would love to give it a shot. I've been reading around online and was told to look for possible bad capacitors as well... is there any particular order I should start with in the troubleshooting?

  • mbullard42 Feb 05, 2010

    Rylee's advice was a good start, but I'm really looking for a typical order for troubleshooting, what I should look for to pinpoint the issue rather than a just a few things that could be wrong.

  • mbullard42 Feb 05, 2010

    Thanks Rylee, I'll take a peek inside and check what you've told me. I honestly never knew there was a site that could get me a technical answer from an expert within a minute at 10pm. I'm really quite impressed, thanks!!

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems that you might have a backlight issue with this set. It could also be due to the inverter circuits for the backlights. The inverter is the power supply source for the backlights. There could also be a screen driver problem; if it is then you have to change the entire board. All this is only recommended if you have some kind of expertise for checking the internal circuitry of the TV as these units have high voltages running even when the set is switched off.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    You are right also check for bad capacitors on the power supply board, and then look on the inverter circuits for the back lights. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Display not working, power button LED turns on blue for 1 second and won't turn on again


Have you tried checking with another monitor. Meaning that if the second monitor does not come on then the problem is with your computers mother board. But if the monitor other monitor you check it with comes on then of course it is your monitor.

During a firmware update on my samsung S20A300B LED monitor the power was interupted and now to won't do anything.


The program has been distroyed, you need to replace flash chip on main board, (8pin SMT IC), if you can do it your self, go to www.daitech.ca, they might supply the chip with program. To open this monitor, use flat screw driver, there are only clips arround the bezel, no screw.

My Samsung SyncMaster 740N occasionally turns itself off. Timing varies and the condition varies. Usually the screen just goes black - from seconds to hours after it is turned on - the blue LED remains...


This could be because of the 'eco' friendliness of the monitor. Basically a lot of monitors are designed to turn off into a low power state when not in use so to preserve power and life of the monitor. I would return the monitor as the sensors that control this seem to be broken in your monitor.

My samsung NW920 turns off after 1 min


If the blue LED ist blinking the monitor does not receive a video/sync signal. If the blue LED is on continuously and the display comes on for a few seconds and then goes dark or dim the backlight inverter may well be defective. The CCFL of the backlight needs several hundred volts to function.

Samsung Syncmaster 710n no display and no LED light


The power button should be on the FRONT BOTTOM RIGHT. and there should be a little led/light next to it. make sure everything is plugged in correctly and press the power button, the led should light up, and then boot your computer.

Let me know --
