Question about Samsung Computers & Internet
M_r_murphy, The T220 may have developed an internal ac to dc "switch-mode-power-supply / CCFL inverter supply" power problem an you may need to need to have it repaired, Look into warranty or outside technician to refurbish the unit's SMPS/inverter!!! From your description, I believe that the SMPS is in "partial shutdown" mode!!! (no 12 to 14v dc) to power-up the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" that enable you to see the text and graphics that you already know are being displayed on your lcd panel!!! (+5vdc or 3.3vdc rail still alive!!!) You have "black screen" symptom!!! NOT BLANK n BLACK screen!!! There are lots of DIY videos on YOUTUBE to help you decide if you can attempt a cheap (<$20usd) repair to your unit. Do some reading in my old fixya profile (louie12fix) and visit some of the links you find there. Because your T220 isn't any different than any other brand of CCFL back-lit lcd display in it's basic design and operation you should be able to fix it. Get back to me lmistyrel on aim or do additional comment to this original post here on fixya with info on your next step to repair this unit.
All the other ccfl back-lit lcd monitor tech's on fixya already know what's wrong inside your unit!! Do your research first!! Bye for now, 12fixlouie
