Having problems with your Samsung 953BW LCD Monitor ?

My friend gave me a new Samsung 953bw monitor and said that it did not work. It acts like no power is connected. My guess is it maybe a fuse inside. How do you get it open without damage?


Answers :

I have repiared those boards , but I haven't taken this model apart yet so here are some general notes.

\015\012\015\012If you get stuck, email me notes\015\012or pictures to [email protected]
\015\012\015\012To get to the boards:
\015\012\015\012Remove the stand.
\015\012\015\012Take all the screws out of the\015\012rear side of the monitor (these hold the front trim)
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012**Then the front trim that\015\012surrounds the screen then unsnaps from the rear case of the monitor {Be aware\015\012of the wires to the power button board }
\015\012\015\012Start at the bottom and release\015\012the trim by lifting away from the glass of the screen from the center outwards\015\012to the corners, then work your way up each side from bottom to top
\015\012\015\012**On some\015\012monitors the trim has to be slid up to remove These monitors usually have their\015\012screws up from the bottom edge .
\015\012\015\012**On some\015\012monitors the front trim is mounted to the lcd panel, so the back is actually\015\012what is being removed first.
\015\012\015\012(a pocket\015\012knife or thin putty knife will help release the catches) These sides can be\015\012really tough to pop off on some models.
\015\012\015\012Another good tool is a credit card\015\012with one edge sharpened like a chisel with the use of a nail file-( this can\015\012cause less accidental scratching of plastics since it is not a metal tool)
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Disconnect the power button plug\015\012if the power button is mounted to the front trim.
\015\012\015\012If the trim came off by itself:\015\012The screen may be held down with 4 to six screws. Once the screws are removed,\015\012the screen will lift a bit. Lift it high enough to disconnect the bulb plugs\015\012and the video board to lcd panel wide wire set or ribbon.
\015\012\015\012OR:
\015\012\015\012If the back came off alone: the\015\012screen will come off with the front trim and the boards will be under a tin\015\012cover that is screwed down. Remove the\015\012tin cover
\015\012\015\012unplug the bulbs and wire to the\015\012screen (small bulb plugs pull out)
\015\012\015\012then the inverter is under the\015\012center area under the metal cover
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012IF you get stuck at one point:\015\012Email me a some pictures of where you are at.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Shout if you need more info.
\015\012\015\012If you email me a good picture of\015\012the inverter , I may be able to get a better idea if it is the inverter from a\015\012visual.
