    Hello,

    I recent got a white screen on my Samsung 2343BWX. I saw in another post that this could potentially be an easy fix on loose connections so I opened it up and reconnected everything but still a white screen.

    Not sure if something popped or busted so I decided to take a bunch of pictures and hope the good people TechPowerUp could help me out.

    Please TechPowerUp, you're my only hope...

    Nothing appears to be wrong with physically, as long as you are plugging the cables in properly which is pretty hard to do wrong because they don't fit.

    If you cant get to the settings menu or any of the OSD to show up I would say that its some kind of failure of the mainboard.
    If it lights up and its white that means that the inverter and backlight are working but the LCD is not.
    It could be the cables but that is uncommon in desktop screens, it could also be some failure of the screen itself.

    Theres really only one way to troubleshoot these things and thats to start replacing parts.
    Most of the time its better and cheaper to just get a new screen unless its something obvious like a busted cap or broken cable.

    Not always the case though even more so with Samsung as they have a habit of bad caps over time although they all look good from what can be seen in those pics.

    How ever in this case it looks like it has failed going by Samsung

    EDIT: have a look on the boards for bulging caps.

    I'm having trouble letting go. She was such a good monitor to me.

    Anyone have any suggestions on similar monitors?

    Mostly used for gaming and regular everyday stuff. Hoping for a price under 250.

    I don't know how to make a sound decision between the 2.

    Asus wins contrast ratio
    BenQ is an LED whereas Asus is LED backlit
    Everything else is pretty much the same
    Asus is like 10 bucks more but I gotta do a MIR for the Asus

    Should I just Ben the Q?

    Relative to my old Samsung 2343BWX, will it be similar in performance? (sort of a wild question but I just needed to ask)
