Question about Samsung 215TW SyncMaster 21" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

On my Syncmater 215tw on power up the screen flashes for a long time then eventually goes black. If i continue to shut it off and on and i notice the longer it is on the screen will start to work normally again. I currently have 3 of these screens on my computer and i want to know what is it exactly that i need to purchase to fix this problem?

    isimfg, Hi, 12fixlouie here. You may need to invest in a soldering iron, solderwick, solder, and maybe a few new electrolytic aluminum-can filter capacitors to fix this problem of "black screen of death" problem that occurs on ALL BRANDS of CCFL back-lit lcd monitors. Do some reading in my fixya profile and also "budmrtn" and buddymc" . You may be lucky, and only need to find (locate) one and only one poor solder connection that has become "thermally-intermittant" (developed a hairline thin fracture) and needs to be "resoldered. Watch some videos at YOUTUBE of owners/technicians that have done this to fix their units. Then come back here and rate this response and leave comment or testimonial as to the worth of my response to you. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

More likely to be bad DC filter caps in the power supply section just like the rest of failed SAMSUNG monitors as shown here.

When I play some games on my syncmaster 215tw, the screen goes black after 5 minutes. I have to reboot everytime to get the screen back on. The blue light flashes but i cant do nothing until i reboot....


that means your VGA is not big enough to run the game.This problem is not from the monitor but your system.I suggest an upgrade in your system to enhance better performance.

Monitor Goes black, or flickers on and off


The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

Samsung SyncMaster 215tw screen goes black after about 1 sec.


I have the same problem its defenitly a problem with the lcd monitor not with the graphics card nor the pc. I hooked up the digital and afterwards the vga connection both had the same result. 1 s perfect screen all visible but than black. pushing the on/off or standby button again shortly 1s the display works than it blanks. Did the same test while connected to a dvd player via the composite video... same problem . Since the previous posts are that old and without a solution I guess there is no hope in getting it fixed.

It's not working!


It seems to be a software failure. Try using your recovery CD to sort it out. If it continuous then i would recommend a clean install if there's nothing that important on your laptop.

Monitor image flashes off and on


Sounds like you've done all the trouble shooting. If you just need that extra nudge, I would agree... it sounds like you'll be needing to shop for a new monitor.

ViewSonic Monitor has trouble to wake up after been shut down?


Ok sounds to me like a power supply problem.. this a a fairly common symptom. I suggest that as a temporary fix you set the monitor to NOT turn the power off to the monitor in sleep mode if possible, in your power settings for the monitor.
