Question about Samsung SyncMaster 2220WM 22" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I have a burned power supply. Component # C523 on pcb# E59670 for a Samsung 22in. Monitor M/N 2220WM. What is the replacement part and is there something else that would have caused this to char that may be bad as well?

    Is it a blue cap by the lamp connector? There should be 4 of them.

    As best as I can tell, yes. It is one of those. It certainly is no longer blue. I would love to have the replacement part number so I can replace it and see if this is a fix. As I asked before; could this have been caused by failure of another component? Just want to cover all of the bases.

    I have posted some pictures of the burned board on Photobucket. See if this helps to explain which components I'm looking for.

I do not see any pictures. Those caps do go bad because they are exposed to about 2000v, so they do fail. If you look at the other three, you should see somthing like 22J 3K = 22pF 5% 3000V. You can get replacement from MOUSER. Most value are from 22~47pF.

    Here is the example of cap (22PF 3000V) made by TDK at MOUSER:

    I sure appreciate your help. I've been scrolling thru the Mouser catalog and guess I still don't really know what I'm looking for. Your are more than helpful.

    By the way, take the resistance reading of the lamp wires (do not insert them into the sockets) (PINK, WHITE, BLACK, BLUE these are the usual colors for the lamp's wires) between each wire and and the chassis, they should be all open circuits.

    Just type in 22pf 3000v or other value in the MOUSER SEARCH BOX

  • lwillis694 Nov 14, 2010

    Looks like the marking is: C

    Looks like the marking is: C 3D 3KV JNC

    Found on another site: for apparent same board, same problem: Quote:

    "I took a closer look at the main PCB, I found a burnt out ceremic capacitor. I also found what looks like an identical capcitor on the other side of the PCB, the numbers on it is 12J 3KV JNC. I found out that this means it's a 12pF 3000v capacitor. "

    Look real close at the board to make sure it did not black (turn into carbon whick will conduct with 2000v applied), make sure to remove any carbon traces on the board.

  • lwillis694 Nov 15, 2010

    Thanks Bud. One of them is pretty charred. I will clean it as best as possible. Again, you've been a great help and resource. This is not what I do for a career. I've always tinkered with things and have been able to fix some of them. Since the advent of the internet and helpful people like you, we can make some of our investments work for us a little longer without having to throw them away. Thanks again. I'll try to let you know the outcome of this little project.

    Yes, scrape it off real well, even if it ends up with a hole (I use EXACTO knife) on the board, the current will try to flow through the least resistance.

    "Tracking" Can sure mess up a switchgear too. We had a bad burn lately too. Old stuff!

The problem is in the power supply inverter board caused by bad capacitors and poor solder connections, an attempt can be made to repair or replace the board, If a professional gets involved it will be pricey.

My samsung syncMaster 220 wm monitor will come on for a second then it shuts off and the button just blinks? Whenever i turn on the tower to plug in my mouse my mouse wont work? What do i do to fix this...

I had the same problem with my Samsung 220wm LCD monitor. I was about ready to chuck it and decided that I would
open it up and take a look - since I had nothing to lose if I destroyed it. I noticed that there was a fried
(exploded and unrecognizable) capacitor on the power board (c523 on a ILPI-055 / E59670 board). The adjacent
capacitor (c528) looked similar and had "N3 3KV SEC" written on it. I couldn't find a schematic online for my
monitor so I did a search on N3 3KV SEC to find out what the capacitance value is for this type of capacitor.
I got a lot of hits for people having problems with both the c523 and c528 but nobody seemed to know what the
capacitance of either is. What I did learn from one capcitor manufaturer's spec page is that "N3" gives the physical
characteristics of the leads of the capacitor (presumably so board designers can know how far apart to drill the
holes for the leads and how big the holes need to be). 3KV was obvious 3 kilo volts, and SEC (if I'm reading the
chart correctly) means high temperature/low dissapation +/- .25 pF tolerance, etc -- nothing on the actual capacitance.
So then I decided to attack the problem from the board angle. What I found is that the ILPI power boards seem
to be used in a lot of different monitors from different manufacturers. So I did a search on ILPI-055 and got
nothing but a lot of other issues with various ILPI power boards. I did a search on e59670 and eventually found a
schematic for a Viewsonic VX1935wm-3 using what I believe is a ILPI-004 power board.
On page 66 of the schematic it shows that c523 is a 10pf/3KV capacitor and that c528 is a 3pf/3KV capacitor.
Comparing all the other capacitors on my board with the capacitors listed for this board, it was vary apparent that
the ILPI-004 is very similar to my ILPI-055. So I went to and ordered Part # 445-2821-ND
(Cer Cap 10pF 3KV 5% radial). I made sure that the temperature ratings were in the 20 to 85 degree C range etc.
Any way, the cap was $0.43 plus $2.00 Shipping and handling and took 2 days to arrive. Once It arrived,
I unsoldered the remains of the previous capacitor and did my usual terrible job of soldering in the new one and
the monitor seems to be working great for the last 5 days now.

My Samsung Syncmaster 2220wm keeps giving me issues. Although most of them I solved, my monitor keeps auto adjusting when I click the power button, then not turning off. Also, it takes multiple times for...

richathanu, You could call Samsung and find out if unit is covered by warranty!!! If not, then you will need to DIY investigate the units internal "switch-mode-power-supply / CCFL inverter supply". Come back here if you need additional help to troubleshoot your 2220wm unit's power supply. Some can be refurbished for $4 to $7 investment in new electrolytic filter capacitors. Some units CAN'T!!! 12fixlouie

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.
