Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Samsung Sync Master 914 has no picture. When power supply is only in, green light flashes slowly. When both power and vga are in, green light flashes more quickly. I hear a faint clicking sound coming from the LCD screen when out of case (located top right corner when screen side is down). Screen flashes faintly (only really noticeable in the corners)and coincides with the flashing of the green light (even with green light being unplugged.) No caps seem to have issues. Multiple known working


Answers :

I would check the caps with ohm meter. Make sure they all show increasing resistance. Caps can be bad without looking bad. Check output voltage on the power board, should be around 12V. If all that checks out then I'd look next at the backlight bulb. I'v repaired many monitors and the problem was almost always overheated caps on the power board. Post back and let me know.
