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.

Not in the monitor, there is a sound bar that attaches to the bottom of the screen that is optional that added speakers to that model.

My iPhone 3GS screen is going crazy! Randomly if I click a letter on the keyboard let's says 'a' then it starts clicking other random letters like 'p' Also, when I'm running an app an let sat I scroll down...


My 3gs has been doing the same thing for the past few days until it got to the point where it opened up settings and started hitting all the different sounds! lol
First i was going to restore but the restore ended up failing due to some kind of unknown error. I then thought what about doing a "hard reboot" by holding the lock button and home button together until it shuts off, then release the lock button while still holding the home button for 10 seconds. That worked. I guess its like disconnecting the battery for a bit. Hope it works for all !!!

When monitor dims and goes black i turn it off , hit the bottom left side (near the BENQ logo) turn it on again and it works ..

This works every time for me . But after a while it switches off again , could be 5 minutes could be 5 hours . Its random

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.
