Shutdown Problem In Samsung LCD Monitor

By on July 1, 2011

The complaint was display shutdown in few seconds after the LCD Monitor is turned on. The power LED is still on and have green colour and you could only see a dark picture. If one could see a dark/faint picture this mean that the problem is in the inverter board or one of the backlight have problem. It can’t be the MCU fault because all other functions was working. Upon inspection found one of the high voltage transformer was burnt-please the pictures below. For your information this Monitor was repaired by Mr Akif who had bought my LCD Monitor repair ebook. The photos was provided by him.

    So right now do you have to modify the coil to make a new transformer or just replace the faulty unit? Do they sell this spare part in the market?

    HI Rafiq,

    It is difficult to rewind such a coil because the wire is too tiny and the diameter of the wire is smaller or same as our hair. Try contact Luca at to check for the part.

    Hi, I have the same monitor as the last poster with the same symptoms but when I pulled the power supply board out, there is a distinct over heat mark on the PCB directly under a 5 pin component, probably a voltage regulator. Is the the voltage regulator likely or should I desolder the transformer to look for burnt windings?
    THanks for setting me in the right direction.

      Hi Shannon,

      What is the complaint of the Monitor? If the 5 pins components located in the primary side then it is a power ic.
