The flickering picture usually indicates that the power supply is failing. The most likely cause of the power supply failure like this is capacitors either drying out or bulging from over heating. We have a page on our web site at: This article wexplains what capacitors are, what you will need to look for to identify the failures and which brand and series to get tof rht replacements. In most cases you can open the monitor and look over the power supply and see obvious bulging on the capacitors that are failing. If you replace them you should be back in business. If you have additional questions just let us know.

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

Greetings, I have the same problems as lots of people with my Samsung Syncmaster 740N flickering, and suddenly went off. The display can be turned off and on again and it will display shortly and then went...

Use good caps with LOW ESR, you can also have bad lamps which will also cause the inverter circuits to go into shutdown to protect itself. You need test lamps to test that. You may have to check the power supply DC outputs, Inverter circuits for bad transistors, transformers, etc.

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps.
Or, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please post back what you find.

Samsung syncmaster 204b not turning on- My monitor's problem was when it switched off, the only way to make it work was switching off main power, and turning on again, then it would come back on flickering...

With certain Samsung models, not only do the capacitors go, but the MOSFETS will go as well, possibly a fuse. The MOSFETs are the big bulky black things with a silver tab and three legs. Should be between the capacitors and the transformers. Just pull those both out and test them (Google "test MOSFETS") One is probably bad but they must be replaced in pairs.

Monitor flickers at start for 20-30 seconds, then everything is ok.

Either a dying backlight or bad internal connection. If under warranty, RMA it with place of purchase. If not, you can try opening it up & tightening any loose connections then reassemble & test. If problem still persists, replace the backlights.

I have owned a Samsung 932BW a couple of years. First symptom noticed was a blank screen and a blinking blue light around the on switch. From another desktop computer, I have swapped video cards,...

reynolds3d, Nothing new here. Happens a lot. 932BW will need to have some work done to the unit's SMPS probably. Read my fixya profile and make decision on what you will do based on info found there. 12fixlouie

I am having trouble when I first turn monitor on. I get a flicker of an image and then black screen. I have to do this multiple times and eventually it stays on. Anything I can do?

m_v_schwartz, Best guess is problem with unit's "switch-mode-power-supply" / "CCFL inverter supply" has a bad "cold" or "frosty looking" solder joint (thermally intermittant solder connection) on the printed circuit board!!! Unit WILL NOT fix itself!! Only you or a qualified electronics technician will fix it. Use your warranty first if valid option!!!! See more of my responses to other LCD black screen symptom OWNERS that I have replied to in my fixya profile. Know and understand the "FLASHLIGHT TEST" that every LCD owner should know how to perform when "black screen" shows up. If this response steers you in right direction, please return to rate this response on fixya. FYI, Also visit web sites I have mentioned in the other responses in profile. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie
