Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 204B (Silver, Black) 20.1 inch LCD Monitor ?
Samsung monitor picture clicks off after 2-5 seconds...
\015 I have a Samsung flatscreen monitor (not sure of model, I am at work). I have had it only a little over a year. Yesterday a problem began. The monitor power stays on, but after viewing screen 2-5 seconds it clicks and goes black. To get a picture I have to turn it off and on again...to be able to view screen for another 2-5 seconds. Any suggestions on what this might be?\015
Yes, It sounds like the backlight inverter circuit is shutting down. No inverter power, no backlight. On some monitors the inverter circuit will shot circuit the power power supply which makes the power light flash on some it just kills the backlight. You can usually check with a flashlight. Hold the flashlight pointed at the screen and see if you can see any of the icons or background picture. If you can then it is the backlight circuit or backlight tubes, usually the circuit.
Try wait few a hours or days...i have samsung 204b and keeps flashing on or off...just try few hours and days...or if nothing resolved, check the circuit.....or consult the expert...
