Louie is correct, ti may be in safety shutdown mode, but you should also try it with another PC to make sure it is not the video card problem. If you are going to DIY repair, please read and look at he pictures.
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

If monitor was working 2 days prior, it should still be working, unless the "switch mode power-supply" has detected a "fault condition" and is in or always going into emergency shut down mode trying to save itself from having a catastrophic event occur!! e.g. sparks, smoke, fire. Better check your warranty!!! Or you could send it to me so I can take a shot at repairing it for about $6 in parts. I need a new wide screen general purpose monitor. Have you seen any DIY repair videos at YOUTUBE!! After you do some research at YOUTUBE, come back here and let us tech's know what your plan is. 12fixlouie

Samsung syncmaster 2220 blinking blue light and no image display


Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

Good luck.

I have my syncmaster 2220wm hooked up to my laptop. How can I get the monitor sound? It is only using the speakers on my laptop...??


Hello a 2250wm is actually a Viewsonic monitor not a Samsung monitor. To get the built in speakers to work you will need to connect the audio cable from your laptop to the monitor audio jack. This cable should have come with your monitor, it will have a headphone 3.5mm plug on both ends of the cable. If you do not have this cable yo will need to get one before you can make the speakers work right. Here is a link so you can get the cable if you need one.

Samsung Syncmaster 2220wm. All of sudden, the monitor went black. It does not show any light at all on the screen. The power light is on (light comes on green). I connected a different monitor, it worked...


Power capacitors on the power board most likely gone. You could get a qualified technician to investigate and repair by replacing the blown capacitiors ( you may notice a charring smell from the back of the monitor if they have gone). Cost of replacement is however likely to be more than the monitor replacement is worth. unlike CRT monitors, these are not designed to be easily repaired

My Samsung syncmaster 2220WM will not stay on. It


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor has been malfunctioning for quite the period but you did not notice it, since the screen goes blank, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replaced.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

When I turn on the monitor all I get is a blinking blue light I have a Samsung SyncMaster 2220 WM


I would suggest to try it on another PC first to narrow down the problem before taking h monitor apart.
Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 and other monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

The Samsung Syncmaster 2220WM I have started to


blueangel617, If unit covered by warranty, use it first! It's free! Your next option is a possible ??? cash+dead unit swap-out for a same model refurbished unit from Samsung, if they have a program like that??? It depends on the AGE of unit! If you are not planning on doing DIY repair to your unit, or contracting out the work to local technician your next option for you as a consumer/user will possibly be trade-in for new! But, if you buy a new unit, the sales guy might drop the 2220WM on the computer tech's bench in the back room and say to the technician "here's another one to look at! See if you can do anything with it." Well, with a little bit of luck, (50/50 chance) the tech will open and inspect your unit and evaluate the condition of unit's "switch-mode-power-supply" and "CCFL inverter supply" make a decision to repair or not to repair. If the tech see's the "classic" common LCD problem, he just might invest less than $10 in parts and end up with a working 2220WM to give to his kid to use for another 1 to 3 years. Blueangel617, you and only you will determine what to do about your "black" or "black and blank" screen CCFL back-lit LCD monitor. I just hope I haven't confused you as to what to do!!! If you can access my fixya profile and those of other lcd monitor fixya tech's and do some reading, you might find out more options that will be a better solution for your 2220WM. Good luck and best wishes. 12fixlouie north of Windy City.
