Question about Samsung 226BW Monitor
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.
