Question about Samsung Syncmaster 2033SW Monitor
The fact that you could see icons with the flashlight would mean that the digital part of your monitor is still working. The part that has failed is the backlight circuit. It could mean a bulb or components on the backlight power supply board has failed. Often the capacitors fail and the caps blow. Other parts that go bad are the transistors. To repair you would unsolder the bad parts and replace them.
The monitor case is held together with plastic fingers that lock the bezel to the back case. Removed any screws from the back of the case. Then to open the back of the monitor, you will need a thin tool like a putty knife. You start at one corner and insert the knife into the seam between the bezel and the back. You slide the knife down the seam to seperate the two halves. This video should help you to understand how to do this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Q6_TgNJvQw.
After you have opened the monitor, examine the power supply board and look for any parts that look blown or burned. An company that sells replacement capacitors for your monitor is http://lcdalternatives.auctivacommerce.com/ The kits they sell are reasonably priced under $20 including shipping. Hope this helps you.
