Monitor screen flashes only, no brightness


Hello,

Flashing display and no picture is a very common symptom of bad capacitors on the power supply board. If you can do a little soldering then you can repair the power supply board yourself. Here is a link to information showing what capacitors need to be replaced on the power supply board.

Samsung p2370


That model should still be under warranty, they have a 3 year warranty from Samsung. Your problem sounds like a dead power supply board. Here is the link to check the warranty and get a warranty ticket:

I have 2 monitors connected to 1 computer using a


satservice, What happens AFTER 15 min of FLASHING?? What did unit do or act like 3-4 weeks ago? Is the screen both BLACK and BLANK? or is screen just black and you can SEE win-desktop if you shine a bright flashlight 1 inch from screen at differnt angles? Can you use your Samsung warranty? Will monitor do same when connected to different KNOWN GOOD prebooted to desktop PC? Are you refering to the "power ON" indicator light on front BEZEL as the FLASHING thing? Need more info, but I suspect "shutdown of units "switch-mode-power-supply" due to detection of FAULT CONDITION having been detected with other circuit or with itself.

Samsung Syncmaster 204T flashing


Hi,
Please check that all the cables are plugged in firmly on the back of the monitor and on the back of the computer.
However....
It sounds like the back light on the screen is faulty. If this is the case it is definitely a return for repair problem. You should be able to find the warrantly procedure for your area on the samsung website.
Cheers

The auto-darken feature(monitor goes dark on dark


In your monitor panel you'll find 4 buttons. Press the menu button and get into Magic Bright. There you can choose the one that best suits you. You can even set to Dynamic contract where the monitor adjusts the brightness according to the elements on the screen

Monitor dark


I had a similar problem with this monitor, mine was dim all the time to the point you cant use it, but the MENU icon was bright as new... also if cable was unplugged the box would float around as normal.... anyway I fixed it by taking it all apart and pushing in the socketed chip.. it clicked like it moved, I also pushed on the variable resistors on the power supply... now it works!!! First time since it quite working long time ago
