    I had the flickering issue of the screen. I looked at the inverter and found that the 2 820uf capacitors were bulging. I replaced all 7 capacitors on the inverer board to be on the safe side and hoped that would fix the problem. No luck, i am looking at replacing the backlights themselves now to see if that will solve the problem. I won't go as far as replacing the invrtor board as it is just not worth the price.

Replacement of the capacitors 330µf/25V into the PSU and inverters is clearing the faulth, additionaly replace the 820 µF caps into the PSU as well.

Hello,

Check for a failure of the capacitors on the power supply board. This is a common problem with these units and its a very easy repair. Here is a link to a repair guide for the SyncMaster 214T which uses the ame power supply board so the repair information would be the same for the 2 units.

Samsung Syncmaster 214T flickering


Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should workfine. We just posted a repair guide showing how to remove the case ans replace the parts. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

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

How do you open up a Samsung 214T


you have to pry it open with a small flathead screwdriver.

Almost all of them are invisible, so jab your screwdriver in there and pry it sideways until you hear a pop.

You will not be ableto do this without some plastic being deformed.
