Samsung PX2370 Humming Noise

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Before I get into it I have searched google and such and My Brightness is 100% (Also tried lowering it, doesn't seem to help)

Anyways......this is a rather old monitor, it's a nice LED monitor but it's probably at LEAST i'd say....2.5 years old, that being said is the issue is is that I can hear a very low audible buzzing/humming noise (more of a buzz). It's coming from the top left of the screen.

Screen works fine btw......no dead pixels, backlight is still good. I also notice that the less there is on screen (Like when I disconnect the dvi cable it only shows the "Digital Only/HDMI Only/Etc..." Text....the humming is barely noticeble)

Any ideas what this could be? Bad Power Brick? I've maybe only noticed it the past 6 months or so.

It's really not that annoying, it has to be very quiet. But my main concern is how much life do you think I have left in this thing? I mean I see no dimming/dead pixels.....but it still concerns me.

Any thoughts on it? Is it prolly Dead soon or still got some life?

Thanks!

Does it plug directly into the wall or does it have an external transformer (power brick)?

If it plugs directly into the wall and is using AC then my best guess would be a transformer inside the monitor. They can vibrate when parts come slightly loose and generate humming/buzzing noises. If a transformer is to blame then I don't think you'll be needing a new monitor any time soon, they can continue to operate perfectly fine despite the noise. If it isn't a transformer then you could well be looking an a new monitor soon tongue.gif

It has a power brick, albeit a small one (It's only 2 prong plug).

I don't know then, it would be anything.
