Question about Samsung SyncMaster 216BW Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor works fine until the power goes out, or the standby button is pushed rather than the power off button when closing down Windows XP. I do have the computer and monitor on a Working APC Battery back-up...but wonder if a bit of electrical glitch is still triggering something in the monitor. I have tried unplugging everything...leaving it for a while and then plugging it back in and the monitor still won't come on. BUT...24 hours later, the monitor will pop back on, all by itself. I have checked to see if any of the Energy savings in the computer could be doing this, but don't see anything either. This is the 3rd time in a year that this monitor has done this. I hate having to wait a whole day for it to come back on. I can't find a reset button for the monitor either...and I would think totally unplugging it from the computer and the power would do that??? Any help/suggestions would be welcomed.

Im running a external MONITOR. How can keep windows running when I shut the lid to my laptop? thanks


Windows XP:

By default, all laptops either go on standby or turn off to save precious battery, but you can override these rules from the Power Options (XP) in your control panel (Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options) and click on Advanced Tab and override the settings according to your preference.

I prefer "Do nothing" while closing the lid. Although this is real simple, few of us might not know it. I

Black screen pushing red to green donot work do not hear any beep


  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor)....

Laptop Screen goes blank


Are you running on battery or AC? Try using the power cord, remove the battery and see if it continues. I have seen a battery that is on its last legs do some weird things to a computer. Also, check your power management setting. Control panel, power, and set the computer to "always on" just to see if it could be a power management setting. If none of this works, i would back up all your files, and try to reload win xp from scratch.

Monitor will not turn on


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}Cause of power goingoff: There is a bad 1000uF, 16V capon the power supply board.

Solution: Replace cap. Radio Shack sells a 1000uF, 35Vcap for $2. This will work.

Why did the cap gobad? The cap is too close to a heatsink and over heated.

What does this capdo? This cap sends a signal to an ICwhich keeps the monitor 'on' after the power switch is pushed. When the cap is weak, AC ripple voltage isapplied to the IC and it sends a signal to shut the monitor off.

Opening the Monitor:These monitors are difficult to open.

The two plastic pieces snap together and must be pried apartwith a flat screw driver.

After removing the stand, you need to insert a flat screwdriver at the bottom of the screen where two slots are located. Then work the screwdriver around until the two plastic pieces are separated.

Remove the cover plate and unscrew the push button circuitboard.

Unplug the monitor cords from the driver board and removethe screen.

Unscrew the mounting screws from the power supply board andremove.

You will need to pinch the plastic support in the middle ofthe board to remove.

Cap Replacement:

Cap is located near a copper heat sink and the value will beon the side of the cap. It will be bulged up on the top. You will see burnmarks on the board surrounding the cap. Unsolder the cap.

Install the new cap and solder. Make sure you connect + ofthe cap to + marked on the board.

Be careful not to solder across joints.

Keep leads long so you can bend the cap as far away from theheat sink as possible.

Reassemble monitor and turn on.

This should solve the problem.
