Dell E197FP - Screen turns off and on constantly

This is driving me crazy. I had my E197FP monitor for a year and it was flawless until now. Randomly the screen will turn off and come back on. The power to the monitor is still on the whole time. Sometimes it does it once other times it will do it three times in a row. Also, there's always a high pitch sound when it does this. I've searched all over the net for a fix and so far have been unsuccessful.

Check the video connector to make sure it is clean and tight. Look closely for broken or bent pins by GENTLY rubbing your finger across the pins.

Otherwise, it sounds like the monitor screen is failing or has faulty wiring or components inside.

When I boot up my desk top with monitor E197 FP LCD stays black takes a few times to go


Hello,

This is a common problem with the E197 units. The problem is caused by a failure of the filter capacitors on the power supply board, they are not holding a charge like they should and it takes several power cycles to get them charged up so the monitor turns on. The E197 uses the same power supply that the E177 uses. Here is a link to a repair guide for the E177 with video disassembly and repair instructions that will help you get your monitor going again.

Open it up and look at the capacitors. The round "tin can" looking components. If the tops appear bulged, then replacing them may help. Check out the YouTube video... and web site...

Dell E197FP LCD Monitor keeps turning on and off


this is the way how to examine where the problem is. You have to check that you can see the image on screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons (Power on both cpu and monitor), there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. They are easily replaced. If you cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
