Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I just bought a new Samsung 953bw monitor at Office Depot. I plugged it in and connected as per directions in the Quick Setup Guide. I placed the cd in the cpu and the monitor doesn't turn on. For some reason, though the box was factory sealed, there was no user's manual included, so I don't know what to do. Can you help me??? Thanks. Jana West

Sounds like the monitor is bad. Does the power light turn on when to press the power button or make a sound?

Look for bad caps with domed tops, and should replace them in a set.

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/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I have a Samsung monitor, model #953BW. I put the computer to sleep last night and this morning the monitor will not display anything. It is the monitor, not the computer, as another monitor works on that...


At this point you need to open up the monitor and inspect the inside.

Monitor turns on for less than a second, then off. I bought a 19" Samsung LCD monitor (953BW) about 10 months ago and the first time I used it, it would only switch on for a split second and shut down. ...


Although the OP was 2009. I had this problem.

I simply replaced the power board. Which I bought from ebay for $20AUD.
It was real easy to remove as well. Just have a look for youtube videos.

Fixed!

Samsung 953BW blue power lights just flashes when turned on nothing visible on screen with no computer connected


Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

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

I need to purchase a new connector cord to connect my montior to my computer. My cat chewed my old cord and it's not working properly. Thank you.


The monitor uses a widely-available standard VGA cable with what are called D-sub connectors at both ends. You should be able to find one at a large office supply place like Office Depot or a retailer like Best Buy. (If you're outside of the US, you probably have similar stores in your area.) You can also purchase the cable online. Here is a suitable cable from Newegg.com, a company I buy from frequently. I've just used this as an example. There are many other sources.

CANT LOCATE CORRECT CHARGER


Howdy,
Most office supply stores and home supply stores, Office Max, Office Depot, Staples, Home Depot, Lowes, carry a Universal AC Adaptor that has multiple voltage settings with multiple plugs that fit a variety of low voltage charger connections.
