Question about Dell E207WFP LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor Problems We have a Dell PC that supports 2 monitors. Since July of last year, we've been successfully running one 20" LCD via a DVI cable and one CRT monitor using its integrated cable. Out of the blue, the LCD went dark. The green light turned to amber and nothing. I ended up removing the DVI cable from the LCD and using a regular monitor cable instead and it worked fine. The only trouble now is that I can only use one monitor instead of two. Do you think it's a bad DVI cable (do they just go from good to bad?) or perhaps a video card issue? Thanks TQ

Borrow a DVI cable from some friend and test it, just in case.

If you want to use multiple monitors, ensure you are using the right settings. Go to control panel>> Display,
open the Display properties box, click the last tab at the top right hand corner, and chose advanced see here for XP, Vista is similar:

Speaker in/speaker out not working


Are you feeding the monitor via an HDMI connection? HDMI carries digital audio as well as digital video signals. If using DVI or VGA to connect it to your PC, there is no audio being fed to the monitor, so nothing can come out, unless you have a separate audio cable running to the monitor as well from the computer :o)

First thing I would try will beusing this monitor with another PC using the same the same setup to see if it works OK. We need to narrow down the cause of the problem first since you have three parts that can be bad; Monitor, DVI cable, PC Video card/PC. It is just a process of elimination to locate the problem.

Monitor is blank. Green power light is on steady.


Self test failed means Monitor is bad.

Check input settings, whether DVI mode is selected.

Have you tried any other monitor connected to your computer since your current problem? Check your connections, make sure your VGA cable/DVI cable are in good condition. If none of that works try to RMA it to sceptre if your still within the 1 year period.

Computer won't recognize monitor driver


Its the usb, if u connect the monitor via the standard port, the vga port, it will work. If your monitor only have an dvi cable you can fix that by an adapter. That adapter should be an DVI to VGA.

Good luck to you

Inoperative monitor


Here are a couple things to try.

1. try the input select button on the monitor (The minnus button) without pressing the OSD menu button 1st, see if it changes to analog.

http://support.us.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/1703fps/en/controls.htm

When the DVI self-test screen is up, it is indicating monitor is in DVI mode.

2. If that doesn't work, try a DVI to analog converter on the DVI port on the monitor and connect the analog cable to the converter. See if you get any video that way.

3. If you can access the On-Screen Display (OSD Menu) perform a factory reset.

No display.


http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/2005FPW/En/setup.htm#Using%20the%20OSD

Make sure the proper input is selected

1: D-SUB for Blue VGA cable
2: DVI-D for White DVI cable

The option selected should be indicated on the power save screen.

If changing the input select and rebooting the computer have no effect an no video from the computer is ever displayed, then the monitor is in need of repair.

hello
I am a technician-informatic. I have repaired about 80 Lcd Samsung monitors with theese problems. I offer the repair manual.
Manual has been done with the experience of the repairing Samsung Lcd monitors. Manual was made by me and shows how to open monitor, how
to solve dark screen problem, how to check and replace capacitors, how to solve the problem non-optimal mode (without reprogramming MCU or
changing the main board) photo are included. 100% functional. The repair process is very simple 30-40min. (does not need a lot of
experience in electronics and expensive instruments) and is not expensive. With this manual you can solve problems by yourself and save
money.

"Not Optimum Mode 1280x1024 60Hz"
- The monitor turns on but turns off by itself, the LED blinks green.
- If you detach from the PC points to "control cable" the picture runs continuously in the vertical direction or presents while line , and
as soon as it is reconnected, the monitor goes off.
- The monitor does not turns on and dont dispaly anything, the LED blinks green-lit, if you detach from pc points to "control cable".
- The monitor turns on, works well some time, but after a window apiers "Not optimum mode. Mode recommended 1280X1024 60Hz"
- The monitor turns on, works well only with low resolution 800x600, when try to change a window that reads "Not optimum mode. Mode
recommended 1280X1024 60Hz"

the manual you can find on ebay (my ebay name is asnerejas123):
