Having a problem with this monitor. Whenever I start the pc up in the morning I get horizontal lines flashing on the screen randomly. Also what looks like fading colors, starts off light and goes to white. Screen is looking whiter or lighter in color normally also. After a few minutes, say 5 to 10 this problem just goes away. If I turn off the monitor for a while or let the pc going into standby the same thing happens.

I suppose it could be the inverter and if this monitor is similar to the other Samsung I repaired it should be easier enough to fix it.

I'd try a new power/data cable, else probably something like a bad cap on the board. Might be worth re-capping (or possibly a new internal PSU board)

I'd also connect a known good monitor to rule out the PC's graphics system.

David, I believe it is the same issue that I fixed before. I've googled it and found several other people with the same problems and the same model Samsung monitor.

David do you remember THIS THREAD?

Current monitor hasn't gone black yet but I do believe it is the exact same issue. I may take this one apart and take pictures again. By the way, that old one is still going strong. Might take this current one apart tomorrow.

Glad to hear that old one is still working, if it's not the cable then open it up and have a look!
