Question about Samsung SyncMaster 940BE 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

No Video on Monito - Blue Power lite is on

We have a Samsung 940B monitor that just quit working one day.  We've checked connections (even swapped them).  We have the front panel power on light (blue).  But the bottom line is there is nothing displayed on the screen, even on power up.

Should I tear in to it, or just junk it?

    No faint image... so it must be broke-broke. Thanks for the assistance.

    I have the same problem, I think. Is the blue power light in the bottom right corner on steady or like mine, blinking blue? I bought mine at Costco about 1 1/2 years ago and I'm going in today to get it replaced...hopefully. Otherwise, a great monitor up to now!

Hello.
Sounds like the backlight inverters or CCFL tubes are at fault.
Turn the monitor on with it connected to a known good SVGA signal source that is sure to have video. (Like the computer when it is operating.)
Hold a flashlight to the screen of the monitor and see if the faint video can be seen through the screen.
If the video is faintly present on the monitor screen using this method of illumination, then either the CCFL inverters / Inverter board has failed, or the CCFL tubes themselves have gone bad. (CCFL = Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp)
This should give you a better idea of how to proceed, repair or replace.
If it is the inverters or CCFL, Repair costs for a DYI project could range from $70 to $120 depending on the level of your expertise and parts availability.
Good luck with your quest.

Monitor works intermittently


Hi Michael, it does sound like the monitor then. The most likely cause is bad capacitors in the power supply. Typically a cheap repair but you do have to solder and such. Unless you have to have a very expensive monitor its probably better to just replace it since basic monitors are so cheap these days. Good luck.

Shine a flash light onto the monitor, if you can see icons/desktopon the screen then you know you need a new monitor!

Hi I have a samsung syncMaster 920N The screen has suddenly gone blank - the power light is showing. I have a second identical monitor and have swapped cables but no difference Is it a repairable fault?...


This happened to me a few months back. I removed all cables and left it for 2 days. Switched back on on it worked fine. That is until yesterday when half the screen went black. I found that my driver was out of date. I have undated the driver but have decided to leave it off and unplugged for another day.
You could try this. You say you have another monitor, i would suggest using it for a few days and the try the old one again.

Monitor just went blank, no power light.


Was the PC running, and then shut down? Or, did it never start in the first place?
It sounds like it could be one of many things. Sometimes if the processor fan has failed, the computer will start up, and then shut down. Also, bad memory can cause the PC to shut down.

Samsung 940B monitor, 14 months old. Power light on when connected to PC, but no images, not even menu or Digital/Analogue prompt. PC recognizes the monitors presence,any ideas please?


Monitors are passive components in a computer system. These just receive signal from the CPU. You may find another CPU and connect your monitor to it to test if it really doesn't work. If it works, this may just mean that your video adapter has a problem.

You can also check the cable attached to the monitor. It may be damaged due to twisting or other causes. Check also if the port is inserted firmly.
