Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 731B 17" LCD Monitor ?

Got a new surge protector/power strip. I

\015 Got a new surge protector/power strip. I unplugged monitor while everything was off - when I rebooted everything comes on but the monitor - Ive tried everything!\015

Answers :

First, plug the monitor directly to the wall socket and bypass the power strip.

Next, connect the monitor into a known working computer to isolate the problem.

If the monitor works on another computer, then there could be a problem with the video card of your computer.

If same problem occur while the monitor is connected to another computer, check the monitor if there's a power light ON. If there's no light, replace the video and power cable of the monitor.

If there's still no power light, then the power supply board in the monitor could have gone bad. Contact the manufacturer for repair.

Good luck and have a great day!
Hi

Please try the monitor without the surge protector to ensure there are no isues with the protector

If the monitor comes on you know its the protector, if it still fails then i recommned the following

1) ensure the fuse in the plug is ok and not blown
2) Change the 3 pin power socket for another one


If after this all fails then for some reason something has blown in your monitor and you will need to book it in for further inspection

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial as this will help me greatly - Thank You again

Power problem it was working fine until one day the power supply fell and quit working. I bought a new one off ebay with the matching mode number. When I plug it up the power light is green and the battery light is amber. I thought the battery could be bad so I got a new one and no difference. I take the battery out and it won't power up at all and with the battery in it ,comes on for a few minutes and the pops off.

I'm trying to fix my alienware area 51-m laptop (766, about 5 years old). It was plugged into a surge protector and the phone line a couple years ago when the phone line was struck by lightning. The laptop didn't power on, no fans, no lights, no post. I recently got around to taking it into a repair shop to have it fixed. The guy said it needed a new motherboard (which is what I had already assumed) so I ordered one, and gave it to him. He says he put the new motherboard in, it powered up


Generally, portable power supplies are pretty rugged, and the items you need to be concerned with are what interfaces with the motherboard. Video card, RAM, Wireless, and Modem. If any of these were in the system during the strike, then they are su ... PC Laptops

Motherboard failure Hi I have been told that my motherboard in my Compaq Presario , which is 2 .5 yrs old and has not been used for 1 year , has failed. Can someone please tell me how a motherboard can fail. I bought a new monitor and plugged it into the PC and I got "No Signal" on the screen for a few seconds before it went blank. The monitor is OK on my other PC. I have been quoted 400 AUD / 600 USD for a new motherboard. Is this a reasonable cost? Thanks
