    Samsung Syncmaster 226BW black screen


    Hi everybody,

    my Syncmaster 226BW doesn't seem to turn on anymore. Before calling it broken (I suspect some component is gone), I just want to make sure it's not a software issue.

    Prologue: for a while, the monitor has been working fine with the exception of not turning on again after being turned off (by clicking the power button) for more than ~20 minutes. Note that I can access the system via TeamViewer, and everything works just fine: the monitor is detected in the device manager, and the computer just doesn't know the monitor is off. The screen just stayed black with the power button blinking blue, and the only way to make it work again was to reboot.

    Today, the screen is not turning on anymore. It's still correctly detected by the systems it's plugged in, but even on other systems it will just stay with the power button blinking. I tried on two separate systems with both DVI and VGA cables. Any ideas before I go to a hardware shop? I suspect buying a new monitor will be cheaper than fixing this.

    Regards,
    Stefano

    I have this monitor and have had the same issue. It's fixable and relatively cheap. I suspect you have bad capacitors. That's a known issue with this monitor. I've had mine for 8 years now and finally moving on to 4K

    Thank you very much for your prompt answer. I'll go to a shop and see what they say. I'd rather not to do this myself as there's high chance I'll break something ;D
