Having problems with your Samsung 215TW SyncMaster 21" LCD Monitor ?

Samsung syncmaster 215tw monitor flickering

\015 Big Tech suggests changing the capacitors on the backlight power supply. Where could I order these parts and what exact parts are needed? Thanks!\015

Answers :

The capacitors BigTech referred to are C110 & C111, 820uf-25V Electrolytic, on the power supply board.
\015\012
\015\012With minor soldering skills, you can replace them with Radio Shack in-store capacitors, Stock # 272-1032, 1000uf-50V Radial Lead Electrolytics for $1.59 each. Works great!
\015\012
\015\012Four bucks and little bit of time saves the monitor.
Well you can use the parts from Radio Shack but they are not rated correctly for this use and will fail quickly and could damage the power supply when they do. You need to use low ESR, High temp and high ripple current capacitors in switched mode power supplies. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows what to look for and replace on the power supply board and it has a link to the proper parts. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.
