I had the same problem with my Samsung 220wm LCD monitor. I was about ready to chuck it and decided that I would
open it up and take a look - since I had nothing to lose if I destroyed it. I noticed that there was a fried
(exploded and unrecognizable) capacitor on the power board (c523 on a ILPI-055 / E59670 board). The adjacent
capacitor (c528) looked similar and had "N3 3KV SEC" written on it. I couldn't find a schematic online for my
monitor so I did a search on N3 3KV SEC to find out what the capacitance value is for this type of capacitor.
I got a lot of hits for people having problems with both the c523 and c528 but nobody seemed to know what the
capacitance of either is. What I did learn from one capcitor manufaturer's spec page is that "N3" gives the physical
characteristics of the leads of the capacitor (presumably so board designers can know how far apart to drill the
holes for the leads and how big the holes need to be). 3KV was obvious 3 kilo volts, and SEC (if I'm reading the
chart correctly) means high temperature/low dissapation +/- .25 pF tolerance, etc -- nothing on the actual capacitance.
So then I decided to attack the problem from the board angle. What I found is that the ILPI power boards seem
to be used in a lot of different monitors from different manufacturers. So I did a search on ILPI-055 and got
nothing but a lot of other issues with various ILPI power boards. I did a search on e59670 and eventually found a
schematic for a Viewsonic VX1935wm-3 using what I believe is a ILPI-004 power board.
On page 66 of the schematic it shows that c523 is a 10pf/3KV capacitor and that c528 is a 3pf/3KV capacitor.
Comparing all the other capacitors on my board with the capacitors listed for this board, it was vary apparent that
the ILPI-004 is very similar to my ILPI-055. So I went to and ordered Part # 445-2821-ND
(Cer Cap 10pF 3KV 5% radial). I made sure that the temperature ratings were in the 20 to 85 degree C range etc.
Any way, the cap was $0.43 plus $2.00 Shipping and handling and took 2 days to arrive. Once It arrived,
I unsoldered the remains of the previous capacitor and did my usual terrible job of soldering in the new one and
the monitor seems to be working great for the last 5 days now.
Not bad for an amatuer with one year of high school electronics 38 years ago.

SOURCE: Syncmaster paower button blinking and no display

Ultimately I had to return the monitor to Best Buy where I Originaly purchased it. Luckily I had purchased it between Thanksgiving and Christmas when the the store had a 1 yr exchange policy. They had to send it back to " have a card replaced" ( They're words). Took about 3wks to get it back no charge. Seems to work fine for now but who knows how long this will last. Will probably be my lasy Samsung

If it is not still covered under warranty, start by opening the case. Once you remove the power board, you will probably notice several capacitors (the round, can shaped parts) that have tops that are not flat. If you see any that have bubbled tops instead of being completely flat, they need replaced. Once they are replaced, the monitor should turn right back on. Hope this helps.

How do I turn off the Samsung sync-master p2050 monitor?

If it doesn't turn off by holding the power button down for 10 seconds, then it cannot be turned off by the power button alone, like most modern lcd monitors. Most modern monitors goes into standby mode. To completely cut power, you must unplug the power cable.
I've enclosed a link to the install manual for reference.

I have a desktop computer that will not work right. My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 220 wm, and my tower is a Dell. Whenever I hook it up the monitor will come on for a minute then shut right back off...

I had a similar problem with Samsung Syncmaster. There was no solution but to replace the dying monitor. However, you said that plugging your mouse into your computer caused the monitor to not function at all, or maybe i misunderstood you and the problem was with the mouse. If the mouse is causing problems than the problem is likely with the computer and not the monitor. Try plugging a different computer into the monitor to identify which is the cause of the problem. Hope this helps.

Display skcrin black but LED not blinking

First, connect this monitor to another computer, if you still do not get a Windows image on the Samsung LCD monitor then it is faulty. The fault could be a faulty inverter board that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or the fault could be a faulty CCFL lamp.
Parts for this monitor could be avaiable from LCD Parts, theie WEB site is :-

The cable connecting to the PC might be loose, or the part entering the monitor could be.

Try turning the monitor on, and after a few seconds, turn on the computer. You should be able to see the BIOS POST screen text flashing by. If you can't, there is something wrong in your hardware settings.

If you can, however, that's the OS resolution set too high: the monitor shuts down to protect itself. Boot in safe mode by pressing the F8 key immediately after powering up, then lower the video resolution in Control Panel display settings to something safe - 1024 x 768 usually does the trick. At that point you can reboot in normal mode and raise the resolution again to the maximum supported by the monitor (check the manual for that).

Display doesn't turn on, emits short beeps and blinks lights

Sounds like a low power problem, Check the power supply with a good ohm meter set to DC voltage if voltage is less than 14 v. Replace the supply. DWW
