So I bought a new monitor, a Samsung Syncmaster 2493HM, and it’s fantastic. The only problem is, it makes a weird sound sometimes. So I opened it up, and found the culprit. See the video below.
It’s one of the components on this PCB. This is the PCB with the audio and video connections, not the power supply PCB.
I can’t figure out what it is that’s making the sound. It sounds like a very very small metal ball in a slightly larger convex area, it keeps rolling for a bit when you stop moving. When listening it sounds like the sound originates somewhere in the middle of the PCB, but I’m not sure. It’s definitely not one of the connectors.
My limited knowledge of electronic components tells me none of them have moving parts and I doubt the monitor is supposed to make this sound.
Any suggestions are welcome!
