Question about Samsung SyncMaster 204B 20.1" LCD Monitor

3 Answers

I have a Samsung 204B cannot remove rear cover

I have a Samsuny 204B Mfrd China April 2006 and I have reviewed all the pdf's and web pages for replacing the capacitors which I plan to do. However, my monitor doesn't have any slot for removing the rear cover. I took a sharp knife and I can slightly pry the case apart, but I'm afraid to pry it hard enough as I'm afraid I might break the rear cover. No pry slots... Any advice for me?

Just did this repair. Don't need a knife, or any tool really for separating the bezel from the rear plastic part. Just get your fingers in between the bezel and the actual display. Each corner has a clip that is bigger than the edge clips. I ended up breaking one corner clip, but once that was off, the rest peeled off (relatively) easy. In otherwords, it like trying to turn the bezel inside out, starting from the inside edge - the edge touching the flat display panel, and pulling it out and over trying to get all the edge clips to disconnect. Start on one edge, and get one corner free, then work around the next edge, and so on until the entire bezel is disonnnected. Once the bezel is free, the back plastic piece is no longer attached and is just hanging around and can also be removed. Be careful how you handle the monitor when separating these pieces. I can imaging the entire assembly falling out once the bezel is removed. P.S., this is assuming the stand is already removed.

No it does not have any slots for inserting a thin blade to pop open the case, you need two blades, leave one in place when you partially crack open, then use another one to open another section. I would start at the bottom section first. It is just bad design and I hate it too. See some sample of failed monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Hello,

Don't use a sharp knife, it will slip and may cut you very badly. We use a small craftsman flat blade screwdriver with a tip about 1/8 inch wide. Start at the bottom but away from the control panel in the center of the unit. The front cover fits over the back part so when you insert the screwdriver tip go from the back to the front. You will have to press down and slide the tip from the back towards the front of the unit. The case should separate a little bit. Once the tip gets between the 2 halves then apply a bit of pressure by lifting the screwdriver. The plastic catch closest to the tip should pop apart and the case should open just a bit. Hold the front case apart from the back and move the tip down the edge just a bit and pry up again and just work your way around the edges. After the first one or two the rest will release easier. after the case comes off check our site to see how to get to the electronics boards at www.ccl-la.com

ONLY BLINKING POWER BUTTON ON THE DMONITOR. NOTHING ELSE IS THERE.


Hello,

This is a common problem with the Samsung 204B units that have been in service for a few years. Parts called capacitors in the power supply start failing and causing the board to not start correctly. The blinking power button is just the power supply restarting over and over. The monitor is easily repairable, you just need to replace the 5 capacitors that have failed. Here is a link to a page that shows how to open the monitor, get to the power supply board and what to replace.

Which fuse do I replace for the display/radio screen


There are 2 locations it could be:
- The first is under the glove box cover.There are several mini fuses in there.The next place to look is under the hood.There is a large fuse box on the passenger side by the alternator. The fuses are labeled in the cover.
- The last place is right by the battery, there is also a fuse box which is labeled.

Maybe, you need review this documents:
- 2006 Nissan Murano Owners Manual / PDF
* Display Screen: Section 4-44 / Page 156
* Fuses: Section 8-21 / Page 280

Good luck, and remember rated the help.

Try to replace C110 and C111 in the power supply circuit. These are 820uF caps and are in parallel. I had slow start and a flicker on this same monitor. Replacing the caps fixed it. Good luck, Ryan
