    Thanks, but i forgot to say i also tried another power cable thats from my pc and is definately working but the tv still doesnt come on, which makes me think it has to be a problem with the monitor itself? what do you think i could do next??

This is a common problem with this unit after a few years of use. There are parts called capacitors on the power supply board that fail and this causes the power supply to not be able to power up correctly. Here is a link to a repair guide with dis-assembly and repair information.

Have sound but no tv picture


That model used the same power supply that the Samsung 940mw uses and when the capacitors go out you get sound but no picture just like you are getting. The repair is easy, you just need to replace the bad capacitors on the power supply board. Here is a link to the repair guide for the 940mw that should help you get your 910 back going, same power supply so the same repair.

On and off switch not working


Hello Michael,

The most common problem with the Samsung 940MW units that don't turn on is a failure of the power supply board. There are parts called capacitors that fail which in turn causes the power supply to not startup correctly so the monitor never powers up. Here is a link to a repair guide that should get you back watching tv and using the monitor in no time.

Problem with tv turning off by itself.


I had a friend with the same problem. He had to clean the components and fans in the set. The accumulated dust had caused the set to run hot and a safety switch was the tv off. He purchased a few cans of compressed air and, as he blew the components and fans out, used a vacuum to capture the blown dust. Good luck.

No sound when on pc mode


Check if your PC can play audio on some other speakers or headphone. If yes, check your monitor audio cable connections. If no something's wrong with your PC audio drivers. Try re-installing them or could be a hardware issue with your PC. Get it checked.

Samsung 940mw intermittent power...


I don't have a solution but would like to compare information as i just started looking into this problem myself. 1. I bought my Samsung 940mw in March, 2006 but didn't start having problems with it until around April, 2007 2. I'll be using it as my pc monitor when the screen goes black and the power light stays solid green. The monitor doesn't respond to the remote control. Nor can i manually turn it off via power button BUT i can restore it by a) turning power off at the UPS outlet it's plugged into b) removing the monitor cable from PC port c) restoring power and waiting for the Samsung diagnostic message about no monitor detected then d) plugging the cable back in. My monitor image reappears. 3. fyi I only use the analog monitor input. Samsung also released a new driver which hasn't made a difference. Within just last couple months the monitor will sometimes just go black a coupla seconds and come back on without any intervention
