I have a Samsung 226BW monitor and lately it takes about 10 minutes for it to quit flashing like a stroboscope before it becomes normal and I can use it. Any ideas?

Look for bad caps.
If you are going to DIY 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/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Samsung 226BW screen takes a long time to show anything


This model may have defective capacitors in the power supply. I normally replace the 2 or 4 bulging caps and normal function is restored.

Monitor color is pink at switch on. 5-10 minutes after normal


There are many things that could be causing that, but to fix it would take some electronic equipment, schematic, and know-how. It could be as simple as a faulty potentiomet, but a shop would charge you more than it's worth to fix it. My advice is to live with it until it gets too bad, and invest in a new one If you're not ready to advance to the LCD monitors yet, check with a Used Computer Store- they usually have CRT monitors at a reasonable price. Hope this helps.

Samsung 226bw visible flickers just after it is turned on


You may have a faulty inverter or loose power inverter connection. OR
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Movie on monitor


Hi, Normally I would suggest that you first lower your laptop's screen resolution, refresh rate and color quality and verify that you have enabled the external monitor or dual view in your Display Property Settings as well as the Fn key + F?. However, this kind of problem should not exist with an LCD Widescreen monitor with specs and features as your Samsung 226BW. If trying the reco on the first paragraph and you still have no movie display (but all other laptop display shows), perhaps it is a problem with the Samsung 226BW. To my knowledge, this particular brand/model uses no less than 3 different panel display, some not as good as the others. Verify that you have an original Samsung panel display in your Samsung monitor by looking at the sticker at the back of the screen, it should say Model: 226BW [R] S. If it says A or even a C, then perhaps the display panel is not living to its specs/claimed capacities. You of course can request a replacement from your dealer and cite your problem but insist that it be an "S". Most instances (but not always) an "S" would mean panel screen by Samsung, "A" by AU Optronics and "C" by CMO. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
