Question about Dell UltraSharp 1800FP 18.1" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

1800FP Dell Monitor Light continuously blinks no picture

So, I we have had no problems ever with this monitor. One evening I decided to turn the monitor only off. The next morning I was unable to turn it back on. The green light that lets you know that your monitor is on was continuously blinking. I unplugged the monitor, tried a different plug source, tried a different cord from another same monitor, rebooted the computer. Nothing seems to be working. Does this mean that is is dead? Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Julie

My Dell 1800FP monitor went black


Confirm your cables did not work themselves loose. Try using a different power cable to confirm that it was not the cable. Finally try a lamp in the socket you are using for the monitor power cable, if you are not using a power bar but even then just to rule that out. If the only thing left is that your monitor is dead, you will need to recycle that one and purchase yourself another one. Sorry

My dell e173fp monitor has quit working. The power light continually blinks when power is applied, even without having to turn it on. An identical substitute monitor works fine on the computer system. ...


Is the power blinking amber? This is a DPMS power-save mode. With the computer disconnected and the monitor on, do you see the colored self-test block floating around? With the monitor on, computer connected, and you still have no image displayed, take a bright flashlight and examine the screen closely. If you can see a very dim display in the screen, the fluorescent tubes which light up the *background* and provide the vivid picture(sort of like a how an x-ray picture viewer works) are defective. The power light blinking may be the power supply sensing the non-functioning tubes or it could just be bad. If your display is under warranty, replace it. If not, trying to have the monitor repaired for this type of problem is almost as costly as a new one--and there won't be an active warranty on anything else that might fail. Hope I helped you.---Rick

Dell 1800fp monitor problem


check the main board from which your monitor gets its main power from to see if it is working or supplying the required power needed by your monitor to work.
if it is not working or supplying the required power,get a new one and try again.
after this procedure and your problem still continues,if you can afford,i will advise you to get a new monitor rather than repairing the old one since the old one if not properly repaired will give you more problems in the near future which will cost money you to repair
thank you for contacting us with your problems you are always welcomed

1800FP image distorted


this is a little known porblem Dell has. Dell is not tell anybody.
I don't know if this is going to fix the monitor for the long haul, but it should help in the mean time.
grable the frame of monitor with both hands, apply some pressure, not too much (you will break the glass). change location and do the same thing. the screen will come back at certain location, when you apply the pressure to the frame. this is because some connection inside of the frame is coming loose with time.

good luck
if that doesn't fix the proble, please post.

Dell ultrasharp blinks on and off


It could be a setting problem, power saver setting, or a mode that the monitor does not really support - things like refresh rate - or actual hardware.

Easiest way is to borrow another like monitor, and say another video cord and see if the problem remains, or if a newer monitor says 'out of range' or similar.

Then, if you have a fancy video card,remove it and use something primitive. Not reading instructions is a big cause.

If its not a setting issue, and as the inverter board is ok; if the above description is correct, reseat the inner board connecting cables.(wood fires and seaside locations) If not that, a lucky guess might be the electros on the logic board.
