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.

Hi! and Happy New Year! Hoping you can help me with a problem with my moniter. When it starts up it says Flatron f engine for the model type. Problem: for about 2 weeks now, at start up the moniter...


I suspect your computers power setting are turning off the monitor and not reactivating it (waking up) I would suggest attempting to change your power setting to never turn off monitor and see if that fixes the problem.

Please let me know if that works if not I can go over a few trouble shooting steps with you.

Thanks

Zoomed moving display while mouse is moving


You have screen zoom turned on. If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel please hold down CTRL and move your mouse wheel down to return to original screen size.

If you need more help go into System Preferences> Keyboard and mouse> Mouse Tab and at the bottom it will tell you the settings for Zooming, if you don't need it I suggest you turn it off.

Hope that helps!
