    I am working on a Samsung SyncMaster 170MP. When plugged in the green on/off power button light flashes continuously and the screen never comes to life. I've tested the power brick and the outputs (14V @ 3.5A) are good, I also made sure that the PCs' video cable output is good and it works fine when plugged into another monitor. I had a similar problem with a Dell 1702FP and had to have (2) capacitors replaced on the power supply board. (10uf - 16V).

    I just received the monitor from a user who discovered it did not work and bought a new LCD monitor.
    The power brick seems okay; all LEDs and buttons on the front seem to work.
    I plugged in an audio cable and sound is working okay.
    Tried 15pin PC input and Video input and the screen stays completely black.

The inverter board has probably failed. Mine turned out to be the clamping diodes on the inverter. It would act like it was firing up but shut down just as the screen would normally come up. I replaced the diodes and it fired right up and has been working great since.

My coby flatscreen comes on and works but strobes flashing light but works good just with strobing light ! whats going on?


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Screen won't turn on


You can try to do the monitor self test.
Monitor Self Test:
1. Physically test the monitor autonomously from the computer.2. Switch both the monitor and the computer off, and then disconnect the VGA cable le from the computer.3. Turn the monitor on, pressing the power button for about three seconds. The self-test screen will come up .4. If the image is clear, bright, and shows red, green, and blue, the monitor is working properly. Video issues may be due to the video resolution in the computer, and not the monitor.5. If the image is not apparent and intense or the colors are not accurate, then the trouble is with the monitor or some of the (OSD) settings. In this case, test your particular monitor's information for OSD.
It is always important to check the color of your power light for so you can distinguish if the monitor is defective. Getting red lights on the the power panel states that the power section of the monitor is faulty.

Having issues with my samsung syncmaster 305t displaying red green blue and white. can you help me with this?


since no one answered this, I had the same issue, It was pretty basic but when nothing is connected to the screen (the DVI cable is not connected to any device) it loops in red green blue and white. So just connect something to it and it should work. This monitor is not the most practical since it has no menu and just 1 port.

It sounds like it since you have the 14v going to the inverter. Repairing inverter boards even on lcd's is 50/50 shot, so let's give it a go. If you have a dvm check the ohms on the inverter xformers ( if more than one) they should be identical in resistance. Check or replace all electrolytic caps on the board. That's about all you can do outside of replacing it, Oh, see if you have a 5v source going to in inv. bd also, check that.

Syncmaster 940mw , there is no power


I have the same problem. I dismantled it, and there are broken/exploded capacitors on the power panel. If you replace these, it will fix the problem.
