Either some capacitors were not replaced properly or you have nor replaced some of them.
The capacitor you need to replace will have a bulged top(swollen).

Try and change the refresh rate of your monitor by following these options--

1.) Right click on your desktop.
2.) Select Properties.
3.) Click on the Settings tab.
4.) Click on the Advanced button.
5.) Open up the Monitor tab.
6.) Manually increase the Screen Refresh Rate to 75Hz(60Hz if it is max), which is measured in Hertz

Samsung 216bw does not turn on initially. It starts to, then goes black. If I turn it off and back on several times, it finally stays on.


Hello,

The problem you are having is an indication of a failing power supply. There are parts called capacitors that fail and cause the power supply to not start up correctly. When you keep pressing the start button the voltages coming out of the power supply will finally stabilize and the monitor will display a picture until you turn it off then you have to start all over again. The power board can be easily repaired by replacing the ad capacitors. You can get information about the parts needed here: http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=138 The repair will require you doing a little soldering but its very easy.

I hope this helps, if so please please rate our solution.

No power in my samsung 216bw monitor


Look for bad caps, it uses the same board as 223ww as shown in my albums.
If you are going to DIY 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/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
