Try it with another PC and also check the VGA cable, if it still does not work, you will have to ope it up and do in-depth troublshooting.
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.

It seems like im having some issue with my syncmaster2493 monitor. it will black out and once i wiggle the power cord it will come back on. any help will be apprecaited


Hello,


Your power supply board is failing and when you wiggle the cord it is turning it on and off until it finally starts up. There are parts called capacitors that start failing and it will cause intermittent power issues such as slow to show picture, flashing power button, wavy or flashing picture. The board can be repaired and the monitor will be as good as new. Here is a picture of the power supply with the parts circled that need to be replaced.

On light flickers instead of being solid blue and monitor will not come on


Power off the computer leave the monitor on then go to the computer power button once computer is off and unplug the cord press and hold the power cord down for 5 seconds you should see a blink of light then plug the computer back in and reboot the machine. If this does not work get another monitor to check the video card borrow one to see if it works with a mock monitor if that does not work then it is your video card that is the issue and not the monitor. Change out the video card. if the mock monitor works fine then your original monitor is broken and will need to be replaced.

Hello,

Your power supply is going out. LCD monitors have a common issue. The heat buildup in the in the cases cause parts called capacitors to overheat and bulge. When they bulge out the don't operate properly and cause the power supply to not start up correctly or not at all. First thing check the warranty, Most Samsung units have a 3year parts and labor warranty. If it is out of warranty then repair it yourself. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. Check out our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com We don't have your exact monitor but you should be able to look at other Samsung guide we have posted and see the parts that need to be replaced. Open your case and replace any capacitors that are bulging and you should be back going again. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for you unit, check our site for details.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

No picture; no operation except flashing blue lcd light.


Look at the power supply first, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
