Question about Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW 24" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor goes black after being on for about 20 minutes

I am pretty sure this is a thermal problem with one of the components on the PCB but I am not sure if it can be fixed or not. Dell does not want to deal with it because I bought it from a 3rd party who removed the Dell ID tag.

What do you think?

    I have the same problem and the monitor is only a few months old. This is horrible. It makes the monitor unusable. I am not inclined to get another Dell Monitor.

This might be related to your system power options, if your monitor turns off after sometime (20 mins in this case) the best way to find out if this is caused due to a thermal reason - is to see if the monitor can work immediately after it turns off (coz, for thermal shutdowns it needs time to cool down before it works again)

Backlight turning off when the tv gets hot


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

While i am on my computer my hp w1907 monitor goes black. if i shut the monitor off and wait a few minutes it will come back on but then it only stays on for a couple minutes and goes black again.


This sounds like a power board problem. Could be failing power capacitors, which are allowing the charge to leak ( stripping the screen, not recommended) will show bulging or leaking capacitors). Or it could be an issue with the PCB. The fact it will restart once it has "cooled down" points to this.

I'm assuming you have tried the monitor on a different computer, just to eliminate the graphics card (unlikely but worth a go)

Solution..get it checked by a qualified TV repairman, it may a be a simple fix.

My GNR F173 makes a squeky noise when switched on and the screen goes black. After switching on again (several times) it works fine. Can this be fixed? Will it be worth the cost if it can?


gwyn1william, Monitor printed circuit components are all "working" !!!! That's good!! You need to see video clips at YOUTUBE!!! Learn how to do soldering. Then use very large magnifying glass or use inspection grade microscope (4x to 20x) to find the 1 maybe 2 "hairline fractured,thermally intermittant" solder connection of the leads of the devices (active or passive) which are causing this condition and will need to be resoldered. ($20 or less DIY) ($40 to $80 contracting out the work) Then and only then return to fixya and rate this as to it's usefulness to you in solving monitor problem. 12fixlouie

FujitsuSiemens TFT goes out after 2 seconds


josexcruz, While you were busy replacing all the electrolytic filter capacitors did you think to closely examine all the other "LEADS" of the surface mount and through-hole components to make sure they ALL look bright and "mirror finished" ??? Try looking for solder joints that have thinner than hair circular thermal fractures around the solderd leads. May need inspection microscope (10x 15x) to see them. Also check the semiconductors package (body) for cracks or swelling due to thermal overstress. Let me know what you find!!! 12fixlouie

Going Black


Sounds thermal runaway. A component is getting too hot and failing. It will cool down and then work for a bit. Pull the covers to access all the boards and get a can of freeze it spray. You can identify the suspect parts with that.

it would seem that one of the internal components has failed / overheated Dont open the rear of the monitor !

if pos drop it into your nearest pc repair shop and have is serviced it may just need cleaned to free it from dust build up
on the inner parts this may be causing the unit to over heat
