Samsung LED computer monitor repaired. Model: S22A100N
This monitor was brought to my shop for repairby a friend of mine. He is also a computer technician. He has a store nearby for selling and repairing computers.
This computer monitor has an external power supply and found to be in good working order. The computer monitor was the faulty part. Let us open it and find out what is wrong with it.
It is 22 inches computer monitor and it was completely dead. There were no screws on it. A flat screw driver was used to open it.
I was really shocked when I opened this LED monitor because the only thing I saw was this board. As you can see I already started to find the faulty parts. It was this Power management IC. The Part number is D9329
This power IC chip takes the power from the external power supply and it goes directly to pin two. When I checked the power on that pin, there was no reading. I was thinking of a bad fuse because I did not get any reading on that power IC. I checked the fuse and it was intact.
I checked for voltage reading at the main power socket, there was no reading either. I soldered this power IC off the board and the moment I did that and checked for voltage reading at pin two, there was 14 volts reading there. This is an indication of a shorted power IC.
This is a closer look at the location of this power IC on that board.
This is an SMD power IC and when I checked with my meter, I found a dead shorted between pin 3 and 2. Pin 3 is power switch output and pin 2 is the power input. That explains why I was not getting any voltage reading on the power IC itself or on the power socket on that board.
It took me a while to find such IC but finally I got it. And I when I replaced it, the LED computermonitor was restored back to life. Sorry I forget to take a picture of it.
I called the customer to come and pick it up. He came and brought me other things to fix. He was happy and I so was I. mission accomplished.
