Question about Samsung 206BW Monitor

1 Answer

Problems with digital cable

My new Samsung 206BW monitor doesn't seem to recognise the signal when I use the digital cable supplied with it (says check signal) and yet the analog is just fine. Am using Nvidia 8800 GTX card and the drivers are all up to date. Any idea what's wrong (aside from maybe a faulty cable)?

Thanks

Check the source on the monitor, there's a button for it on the front.

Common problem with just about 905 of failed LCD monitors; bad caps.
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

White screen on a Samsung 206BW after it fell onto the floor

Something is wrong inside the monitor. I would call samsung support and get an answer from them. You could probably trade your monitor in aswell if its still under warranty.

Samsung syncmaster 206bw turning on and of, light flashes on for 4 seconds, then off for 2 repeatedly i can see windows is working fine in the background during the 4 second gaps while the monitor is on...

If you have soldering iron and can place an order at DigiKey.com (and are willing to get your hands down on this), this is a rather easy fix with some direction. You basically will be replacing some failing capacitors inside the unit.

I had a similar problem with the same model; the cable connection into my computer was not good. Try fiddling or replacing the cable.
