Question about Samsung SyncMaster 910MP 19" LCD Monitor
I have a 910MP that appears to have a blank screen. I say appears, because that is what I thought until I observed it in a brightly lit room and on an angle.
There is video (you can barely see it). What has happened is the backlighting has failed.
I have been able to source a replacement power supply (on the internet)
but am not sure if it is truely the supply or the actual lights themselves.
Is there a way to test this ?
The supply is $200.00 and I could probably by a replacement monitor instead. I don't want to throw good money after bad.
My 910MP recently developed the bad habit of resetting the Contrast/Brightness/Color/Sharpness settings to 0/0/0/0 all by itself. This results in a "black screen" as well. The cure is to go into the menu and raise the settings again.

Replace the Capacitors in the power supply. Start by replacing the two 1000 uF and two to four of the 470uF. Make sure you replace them with computer grade replacements i.e 105c temp rating and it doesn't hurt to up the voltage either.
This will usually do the trick. If not, you may have a burned out CCFL or one or more of the driver chips that drive the transformers is toast. Lastly there is always the possibilty of a shorted transformer.
