SAMSUNG this old is more likely to have bad DC filter caps by now, look for caps with domed tops, also replace them in a set using good caps with low ESR and 105c rating.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Flickering can be a couple of different things:
Try a different wall plug, to rule out RF interference.
Replace the video cable and make sure it is not running parallel to any other cables.
If you are using VGA, use the DVI port.
Make sure you are running the monitor in it's native resolution (I think yours is 1680 x 1050) and are using the newest drivers for your graphics card. You can also try down-clocking the card and double-checking to make sure you are running the refresh rate at 60 Hz.
Unfortunately, replacing the backlight (unless you find one on eBay and do it yourself) is probably more expensive than buying a newer, bigger LCD with a faster response time.
Good luck!

Hello,

This type of monitor problem is usually cause by a failure of the capacitors in the power supply board. What is happening is the power supply is not starting up correctly so the back lights are not coming up to full brightness. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to dis-assemble the unit and repair the power supply board. http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/repairing-the-samsung-225bw-22-monitor/
If you can do a little soldering then you can do the repair yourself.

I have no blue light at the power button for my Synchmaster 225BW


The power switch is a momentary tactile switch. If you want to fix it, you will have to turn it off and look at the size of the switch to try to find the replacement for it. Not much you can do but open it up to find the cause of the problem.

Moniter is flickering, just bought a new video card, have had the moniter for over 2 years , any solution?


You can disassemble it check it for bad capacitors. Other than that you can check on ebay to see if anyone is selling the boards for that model. Sometimes you get lucky and find someone that has the same model with a broken screen.

Monitor comes on dimly then goes off


The most common cause of dim displays on this unit is a failure in the back light power supply. This problem can be fixed if you can do a little soldering. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to dis-assemble and repair the power supply board.

Samsung 225bw display with NO VIDEO and flashing power button


Hello,

A flashing power light and no picture is a sure indication of a shorted power supply board. There are parts called capacitors that fail and this causes the power supply to continuously shut down and restart over and over, hence the power light flashing. If you can do a little soldering then you can repair the unit. Here is a link to a service guide showing how to dis-assemble the monitor and repair the power supply board.
