20 Most Recent Dell E193FP 19" LCD Monitor Questions & Answers


Hi,

There are two cables connected at the back of the monitor. one for the power and one for the video . Make sure the one for the video is securely fitted.

Hope that helps.

Thank you.

From the description there are bad solder connections on the power supply board and since the monitor is 7 years old there is a good chance some of the capacitors need to be changed.

Hello Chris,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the strip on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

The backlight or the inverter have burnt out. This is what "brightens" your screen.

Go into the Windows Control panel, then to power settings. There you can adjust the settings for the monitor sleep behavior, as well as computer sleep and hibernation.

There are seperate settings for while plugged into power and while on battery.

If you have trouble, just let me know which operating system (XP, Vista, Win7, etc) you are running and I will give you step by step instructions.

Hope this helps you,

-Ben

Sounds like some bad electrolytic capacitors, it's easily fixed. I highly recommend reading the links at the bottom, it'll give a you a better insight into the problem and solution.

You have 2 or 3 options:

1. If it's under warranty then you could send it back to be fixed, problem is they will likely use the same rubbish brand of capacitors again, but anything else will void the warranty.

2. Pay a tv repairman or similar to fix it for you. They may still use substandard capacitors, so specify what brand you want them to use, this will probably mean waiting longer and possibly paying a little more. This way you know the job should be done right.

3. You could replace them yourself if you're comfortable with a soldering iron, or know someone who is. The capacitors themselves are quite cheap and easy to replace.



Go for the best ones you can get for the job and try to buy from reputable companies, the links below will help you chose but you can't go wrong with Rubycons. Every capacitor manufacturer has several ranges, each having different properties which make some more suitable than others




Always match the values on the original capacitors. You can actually use slightly different values for the capacitance and voltage (uf and v) but never use ones below what the originals are rated at.



The links below will explain this further.



They should look something like this:
drunknmonkey_4.jpg
As you should be able to see, the one on the left is bulging. The blue stripe with the arrow tells you that the lead on that side is the negative, the positive lead should also be longer than the negative one.

Tools needed
-----------------
1. Soldering iron. - preferably with a stand with a sponge in.
2. Solder - there's different types so make sure it's suitable for electronics
3. Phillips screwdriver
4. Flat head screwdriver
5. Wirecutters
6. De-soldering wick, or pump. - definitely recommended but not really essential.


If you haven't already got the tools then it's a good investment, as bad caps cause a lot of faults in all kinds of electronics.


Instructions
--------------
1. Unplug monitor and open case.

2. Identify power board, it should have a lot of electrolytic caps on there and obviously should be connected to where the power lead is attached.

3. Identify the bad caps, they should be bulging and/or leaking, although not always. Note down the three values for each cap (eg 220uf, 16v, 105c) and their approximate dimensions, and get new ones, preferably Rubicon or Panasonic, the link below will help you chose some good ones. If in doubt you could remove them and take them to the shop, but you'll have to remember where each one goes and which way round it was (take pics).

4. Very carefully heat up the contact on one side with the soldering iron, and rock the cap the other way, then do the other side, keep doing this until the cap comes out, if you have a de-soldering wick/pump use it to remove the solder and it should just pop out easily.

4. Replace with new cap, making sure that you observe the polarity and make sure it's securely seated and soldered in. Make sure the solder is neat, tidy and doesn't contact anything else. If there's any solder left in the holes then you'll have to heat it up or remove it before you can get the new cap's leads through. Once done properly trim the leads off so they won't cause any problems.

5. Replace casing and test. If it doesn't work then you'll have been a bit messy with the solder, tidy it up and try it again.

This sounds like the power capacitors are failing, which is not uncommon for a monitor of this age. You can take it to a TV repairman and get the offending capacitors replaced, however, the cost of replacement may outweigh the cost of a second hand monitor

The inverter circuits or the power supply for the inverter circuits have failed due to bad caps, cold solder joints, shorted transistors.
See my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Dell%20E193FP/
If you do want to spend money on tools and troubleshoot it down to component level, you can replace the board, here:

Hello NDK, use first an alternate monitor, and see if the problem is your DELL. If the alternate monitor works fine on your computer. then your DELL has power supply problems, this can be repaired by replacing the power supply board with a new one or a refurbished board. find one online or try ebay for the board. If you can do the replace thing, you need to disassemble the unit. if you cant, pay for service.

Look for shorted out transistors and fuse, check the blue caps as shown, and also other caps in the power suply.

That will take more time than repalcing the caps, bad caps can have high ESR, to measure current discharge during the AC discharge cycle of 50~100KHz each power supply will be real hard unless you have very low Z AC amp meter that has frequency response higher than 100KHz and not introduce resistance in series with the cap, if you look at the rating of ESR (PANASONIC fm/fc series cap made for switching power supply, it is in milli Ohm range. Better off replaceing 50 cents parts or use good cap meter that can do leakage, ESR, capacitance test if you want to analyze the caps, shop time will be too expensive. Just my 2cents adn 30 years of experience.

It can be caps are leaking, or arcing in the the inverter circiuts or from the lamp assemlies, shorting out transistors.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Whenit power up and stays if the display picture is good, the fault can be a dry soldering, poor joint or a thermal runaway of one of the power circuits.
In all the above you can open the monitor , tap and see or look with a magnifier for visible dry joints.
You can also check if any semiconductor or IC is heating up beyond to shut off.
