Having problems with your Samsung 226BW Monitor ?

Samsung 226bw visible flickers just after it is turned on

\015 My Samsung 226bw, around 3-4 years old, started to flicker just after its turned on. This last for about 20 seconds or more then the flickers will stop. The flickers are visible to the eye and is quite fast but as the monitor has been turned on longer, the flickers gets slower and disappear.\015\012Apparently when the monitor has been on for awhile and I turn it off and then on again, the monitor doesn't flicker. Only when it has been turned off for awhile and then turned on, the flickers start.\015\012\015\012Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.\015

Answers :

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.

Hello,

The wavy or flickering display is an indication that the power supply board filter capacitors are about to go out. They fail over time and then the output voltages are not smooth so you get the flickering display. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to open the monitor, what to look for and replace on the power supply board to rebuild it and get that unit back up and running again. The repair is very easy, replace 6 small capacitors. The guide is for the 214T bu tthe 226BW uses the same power supply board.

My SamSung SyncMaster 226BW flashes about 2 times a second for about 30 seconds when first turned on. The background (computer) image is present, but dim. After about 30 seconds it appears normal. It does this whether connected to a computer or not. I read the response to a similar problem but it was just a smart remark and not at all helpful. Three other 226BW's are working fine.


The first place to check will be the caps in the power supply, look for bulging top/bottom seal. See example of failed SAMSUNG monitors due to bad caps: http:// ... Computer Monitors

It recently started flickering when I turn it on. It did this for several minutes before displaying normally. Then it wouldn't display anything at all until I turned it on and off several times. Then it would again flicker for a couple of minutes before behaving normally. It's still under warranty. I have checked the physical connections, disco'd and reconnected them. I think the on/off switch maybe shorting out.


Duffy325, Don't mess with it!!! Get SAMSUNG to give you a new or REFURBISHED unit t0 replace your BAD unit. Your unit is behaving like I would expect a 3-5 year old unit. It's got a power supply problem, not a front panel switch gone bad problem. FYI ... Samsung SyncMaster 2233BW 22" LCD Monitor
