    just going completely black....as if it was on stand by...if i'm playin music too it freezes the music showing the pc has crashed ...i looked at the trouble shooting tipson my samsung CD and it said something to do with graphics frequencies..if that helps in anyway...

    I have the same problem. Whenever I unplug the DVI cable from the monitor it displays the "no signal" box but if I plug it in, it goes back to the black screen with the flashing light. My video card is fairly top notch and everything works fine with any other monitor I've tested with.

  • Anonymous May 11, 2010

    Could be a number of things.

    The light flashing could mean the monitor is losing the video signal.

    If restarting is helping, I would look at the video card (if the PC doesn't have on-board video). It may have an option card installed, and it is overheating, thus dropping the video to the monitor.

    Is the "no signal" box coming up, or just going black?

Similar problem with Samsung Syncmaster T260 at 1920x1200 on HIS Radeon X1950XTX video card. Black horizontal stripes lasting 1/60th of a second or so every few seconds, then black screen for 2 seconds, then fine again.

I Set the catalyst control center control panel for the graphics card to Alternate DVI operational mode under the Digital panel attributes item. Setting the screen to 1600x1200 also seems to stop it doing this. BUT...it didn't used to do it. Bought it in November, and it didn't start doing this until late January. Go figure.

Samsung Syncmaster 204bw has a red screen


A red or pink tint to the screen indicates that the back light bulbs are failing and are about to burn out. Its time to look for a new monitor.

I have a samsung syncmaster 204bw and sometimes the monitor flashes black for a couple seconds and then comes back on. it will do it and then wont for awhile.


This is an early warning that the inverter board is failing, "powers the back lights behind the screen" eventually it will go. The board must be replaced or repaired.

My samsung syncmaster 204bw power light keeps blinking and wont turn on.


Does it do the same with another PC?
If it is monitor, then please read below
Look for bad caps first:
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/

Problem with syncmaster 204bw


Hi there.
unfortunately this is not a driver issue. if possible, test this screen on a different PC/Laptop.
it sounds like a problem with the screen itself - meaning you will have to take it to a service centre, or if its under warrantee - take it to the shop you baught it from.
*** NB note: samsun screens normally carry a guarantee of AT LEAST 3 years, and not only 1 Year.
