Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20.1" LCD Monitor ?

Flashing Blue Power Switch. Unit Will Not power Up.


Answers :

Hello,

The flashing light is caused by the power supply not starting right. Because of heat build up in the monitor case parts called capacitors have blown causing the power supply to fail on start up so it keeps trying to restart. If you can solder you should be able to do the repair yourself. Go to our web site at : www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm and look at the pictures. Open the monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictures and you should be back going again. Be sure to replace the blown caps with high heat rating units rated 105c. These are not found at Radio Shack, you will have to get them from a supply house or the internet. We carry them in stock if you need us to supply them for you. Be sure to resolder the replacements with the polarity stripe going the same way as the old one comes out. The values you need will be marked on the sides of the ones coming out. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 + return shipping. If you have additional questions just contact us at our web site.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

I have a Samsung Syncmaster 932b LCD monitor. When I turn it on, the screen just flashes on and off, as does the blue light around the power button. I read up online and found that the capacitors on the power supply were bad, so I opened the monitor and found the power supply motherboard and I found 3 of the capacitors were bulging. I am looking to replace them, but I can't seem to find out exactly what kind of capacitors they are. The capacitors themselves have the following written on them,

Hi, when I press the on button, the machine springs into action but immediately starts a ticking noise as if something is stuck. The blue light on the switch flashes in time with the ticking.

I bought a new Hard Drive after accepting I had lost all the con
