Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 940MW 19" LCD Monitor ?

I have a similar issue as "Alan" 11/1/09. No blinking green light or display for the longest time, then it finally comes on. Hold in the power button, count to 30, sometimes it will start blinking... just push the button, nothing. Am I on the brink of losing it altogether? Otherwise, great picture...when it comes ON! Can you advise?


Answers :

Brinz97, Yes, to your ?.. Do this first!! Turn it off and subin a working monitor. Place 940MW in safe place! Now check to see if it is still covered by Samsung warranty. The next thing for you to investigate will be YOUTUBE!! If you haven't been there yet, you sure are missing a ton of stuff on typical repairs of lcd monitors!!! Only you can make the decision to spend $12 and fix it yourself or $40-$100 to contract out the work! A very good clue was when you stated "great picture...when it comes on" !! This leads me to believe that a simple repair to the "switch-mode-power-supply" is all that is needed. It could be as easy as resoldering 1 "frosty/cold" solder joint or replacing 4 to 6 "electrolytic filter capacitors" that have failed prematurely!! To view some of these goto www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm or any of the sites that deal with BAD capacitors. Here is the advice you need. I say "If you are able to effect a repair for less than $15, then also think about getting a new one also with the $ saved!!! Then you will also have a working SPARE unit on-hand. If you need more help get back here to fixya with another post to your original. or [email protected] I'm 12fixlouie

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 that doesn't seem to post. When I turn it on, the power light comes on, the battery light comes on, I hear the heat sink fan run, but I don't get the Dell splash screen.
