    Hi guys. I have a Samsung 226BW 22inch monitor which might be going bad..when i turn it on it keeps blinking until like i think the inside bulb gets warm then it gets brighter and turns it to normal. i also feel like every time i turn it on it takes longer to stop blinking. Unfortunately my warranty ran out so im looking for help or ideas to fix this bad boy.

    My question is What do u guys think the problem is? i think its the bulb but i have no monitor knowledge once so ever and where could i possible fix it at


    Thanks!

    Samsung has a flat fee for repairs to monitors out of warranty, no matter what is wrong with them. I don't remember what the cost is, but you should contact Samsung and ask.
