Having problems with your Samsung 215TW SyncMaster 21" LCD Monitor ?
Flickers then goes black
\015 I have the same problem. It will flicker out of standby or often from a cold start. It does appear like "it doesn't get enough power so shuts off" so I believe the capacitor story. Which capacitors and where to buy them? Hard to fix?\015
Yes, This is a typical symptom of capacitor failure in the power supply board. It is an easy repair, 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 will be the same for the 215TW unit. The guide has a parts list and order information.
I hope this helps you,
