Yes,

A flickering screen indicates the power supply is not properly filtering the output power. This happens when the capacitors on the power board start failing. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to dis-assemble the unit and what to look for and replace on the power supply board. The repair guide also has videos showing the process.

I repaired one suffering from bad capacitors in the power supplay and the backlight inverter - total 5 caps replaced - wrorks as new.

Open it and check the electrolitic capacitor tops for sings of bulging.

The backligt stay fickers contineu

Flickering or wavy picture is a very common symptom of failing capacitors in the power supply board. This is a very easy repair, it just requires replacing the 6 capacitors on the power supply board. Here is a link to a repair guide for the SyncMaster 214T which uses the same NP-20 power supply board so the repair information will be the same.

Hello,

The flickering is caused by a power supply board that can't stabilize the output voltages. This type problem is caused by failing capacitors. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. Check out our step by step repair guide at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/samsung-214t-repair/ If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for this model. The repair runs $30 plus shipping. You can setup the repair service at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/service-request-form/

Samsung 214T wakes up from hybernation flickering (Windows 7)

Hello,

A flickering display usually indicated a failing power supply. Check out our web site at www.ccl-la.com We have a free step by step repair guide for the 214t that will show you how to open the case. Once inside look at the power supply for parts called capacitors. The tops should be perfectly flat and I would bet your have bulges which indicate they are damaged. If you find bad caps and them replace them you should be back going without any flickering. Many LCD monitors will have issues after 2-3 years of use. If you have any more questions just let us know.

Samsung 226bw visible flickers just after it is turned on

You may have a faulty inverter or loose power inverter connection. OR
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Samsung 214t syncmaster flickering

Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you aregood 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 ansreplace the parts. The capacitors do need to be installed with thecorrect + and -connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one thesame way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.
