No Power in Monitor

I had the same problem last night with my Dell Monitor. Hooked monitor up to a brand new Dell system , still same problem. I took a 6 yr old monitor from Dell and hooked it up to my system and it works fine. I have zero power, the light stays orange and will not shut off even though I shut the system down totally. I worked on this for an hour with no luck. Any suggestions beides the garbage can? Thanks

Re: No Power in Monitor

If you are a tech. Check the voltages going to the Logic Board, if one is missing (12 or 5v. Then that is most likely due a an IC failure on the power supply board. IC 901 Don't quote me on this, but I know it is less than $10. Sorry, I only have 1 left, the last one I did was in Aug2006 so memory is fuzzy. Kegtapper

Colored vertical lines on monitor

Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

No display on SyncMaster 920NW after reboot from power failure


It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. Look in our monitor repair section for step by step repair guide for this model it should be the same power supply as the 930. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Dell m992 crt monitor

If it's getting no signal, make sure the monitor is set for the correct input. This would be either analog (if your cord has blue ends) or digital (if the connectors are white). Depending on wt yhat your monitor is, a button on the monitor will help you set that. If it's set for the correct input signal, then switch out a different cable to see if perchance you have a bad cable out of the box. If there is another PC or laptop setting around, plug your monitor into that to make sure it's good and maybe even plug THAT monitor into yours to make sure there is nothing wrong with your video card. Let me know what transpires. If this takes care of things, please help me out by rating it accordingly.
