Question about Samsung 226BW Monitor

1 Answer

My Moniter won't work!

I have a Samsung 226 22" Widescreen. I stepped out of the room and on my return moved my mouse to turn on the screen (a habit which we all do subconciously by now). I heard the drives start spinning and the light was still glowing on the monitor but the monitor would not start. I turned off the pc. Unplugged the monitor, plugged the monitor back in but this time had absolutely no light glowing around the switch. My monitor is now as dead as bad disco!Although sometimes I can hear a whiney high pitched sound coming from my moniter, and the blue light around the power will blink on and off, but no matter what I do it'll keep doing this. The high pitched noise is the sound that a t.v. will make when you turn it on. Oh please help me!

That high pitched sound in one way is a very good thing. It pretty much points out the source of the problem itself. That is more than likely either a blown capacitor or transformer on the power source inside the monitor. I would rule out the power inverter for the LCD backlight because the power light will not turn on either. I have found that Samsung is very good with their repairs, and if it is a somewhat recent model they should be able to get it drop ship repaired with little expense. That can be an inconvenience, and if you do decide to replace the monitor altogether, please be eco-conscious and have the old screen either donated to a goodwill organization where scavengers like me will buy it for raw parts, or to an electronics recycling center. E-Waste is becoming a very large problem and LCDs and flat screens are a hefty piece of it.

Your new moniter may not be compatible with your computer. I have an Emachines that won't take a flat screen. I have to use a big bulky moniter because it says not connected even thought the hookup fits the back of the tower. That might be your problem. Did your old moniter work correctly?

Moniter won't come on


The problem is in the power supply board often caused by one or two capacitors that open, some will show a bulge at the top making it easy to spot.

Moniter stays blank


I used to repair LCD flat screen from Dell. I am not sure that my method might be applicable to your CRT monitor. Anyway this is how to examine what wrong with the monitor. You have to check if you can see the image on the screen or not after it went blank (Power on both CPU and monitor) by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. In my case, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
Thank you
