Question about Samsung 226BW Monitor

2 Answers

I have a Samsung Syncmaster 225BW. It has been working great. I usually leave it on 24/7 but last night I turned of the power to the screen while the computer continued to defrag. when I turn the power switch back on on the monitor, it came on dimly for about 5 seconds then went black. So turned power back off for about 10 minutes and tried again; same thing. Tried again 4 more times; same result. now I have to resort to using my laptop, but i need to access my PC; ANY IDEAS Bob

Hi,
I would check leaky electrolytic capacitors in power supply board of this monitor for these symptoms.
Please check any leaky/ swollen top/ bulged capacitor in power supply board and replace them.
Hope this info will help you to solve the monitor power issue.
Thanks.

For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then if you are able to see safe mode and other menu then enter in "enable vga mode" then go to display property then change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply.
But if you are not able to see it then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then make sure your harddrive is recognized there.
if still same issue then open cpu cabinet.
Reattach the RAM memory.
Pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes.
Reattach both connection to harddrive then check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello,

This type of monitor problem is usually cause by a failure of the capacitors in the power supply board. What is happening is the power supply is not starting up correctly so the back lights are not coming up to full brightness. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to dis-assemble the unit and repair the power supply board. http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/repairing-the-samsung-225bw-22-monitor/
If you can do a little soldering then you can do the repair yourself.

Hello,

The brightness issues with this model are usually caused by a power supply that is starting to fail. There are parts called capacitors that start to fail, when this happens the power supply can not get to the correct voltage outputs that it needs to properly run the back light bulbs. This type of problem causes either the dim display that you have or a wavy display until the unit can stabilize the output voltage. It is repairable if you can do a little soldering. You will need to replace the 5 capacitors on the power supply board. Here is a link to a repair guide for that unit that shows what needs to be replaced.

This is an easy fix, about 15 minutes once you have the parts.

Blank lcd screen when turned on . Wonder if backlight problem


Hello,

A blank screen is usually caused by the power supply not giving the right voltages to the back light inverter, the bulbs last a lot longer than the power supply board. If you can do a little soldering then you should be able to do the repair yourself. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to dis-assemble the unit and get to the power supply board. There are 5 capacitors that will need to be changed and in most cases this will fix the type of issues you are having with this monitor.

Monitor is ghosting, white trails.


You might want to try detaching the monitor and trying it on another computer unit to see if the problem still exists.  If it only occurs on your unit, then try updating the drivers on your system and see if that solves it.

Syncmaster 913v not optimum mode


I just resolved this problem for my SyncMaster 913N.
It seems to be a known issue, however it can take quite some time for the problem to occur. In my case about 3,5 years, so well out of warranty.

Short term solution: unplug your monitor from power. The switch on the front is not good enough. Pull the plug and leave it for an hour or so (all night if you can). Good chance the monitor will work next time you power it up.
The problem will is likely to come back..

Permant fix requires some basic soldering as per this video:



I just managed it and it has been ages since I soldered a resistor so you may very well be able to do it. I spent $25 on tool and part and saved me from buying a new monitor.
