    My SE198WFPv won't power on either. Just stopped powering on last week for some reason. Does anyone know if these are covered under Dell warranty?

Hi,
First, verify the monitor is functional.
Monitor STFC (Self Test Feature Check)
Turn off the monitor
Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket to remove any
surge protectors or APCs from the troubleshooting equation
Unplug the monitor video cable from the back of the computer
Turn on the monitor
The floating dialog box should appear on screen against a black background.
If the issue appears during the STFC, the monitor is defective.
What are the results please?

rtutt, First, before you start to tear apart the monitor any further, take pic's (close-ups) of screws, cables and their positions BEFORE detaching them from their board mounted jacks. Second, the fuse will be a small pigtail type soldered to the power supply board. It's the board that will have the connector on it that the line cord plugs into from outside the plastic cover. This is Pretty neat for you because if you forget where something goes, you can always open up another monitor. Well if you get the steel shield cover removed (BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO RIP OFF ANY CABLES OR MULTI CONDUCTOR RIBBON FLEX CABLES) the cables can then be popped off. you can probably catch a video of monitor tear-down on YOUTUBE.com by doin a search on LCD repair. Yes I have seen some that are 8 to 12min long on the tube. Also you will be visually checking all large electrolytic capacitors for SWOLLEN tops of their aluminum can. You will need a large magnifying glass to inspect the solder side of the board for circular hairline fractures around the leads of heavy and larger "through-hole components, that have been thermally/mechanically STRESSED over the years. they will need to be resoldered. Well any way, keep me posted of your progress. Im louie12fix or lmistyrel@ aol.com PS: I have dell and will take pic's of board!!

This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's most likely the problem. You can confirm that it's actually the monitor and not your computer or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try. If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old your monitor is, and how much you've invested into it, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

Are you using Dell Series 5 ink cartridges?

Unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has.

Power on the printer. Open the printer and take out the Dell Series 5 Black cartridge. make sure all the tape is off the cartridge and put the cartridge back in. Now do the same for the Dell Series 5 color cartridge.

Close the printer. It should print an alignment page. Any error messages?

Black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

Photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

If these ink cartridges are new, then take them to the place of purchase for a refund or replacements. If they're old, then try purchasing a new Dell Series 5 ink cartridge.

I want to change the power of my XPS420. Actualy,L375P00 (375w) i search a power with 450w minimum. Can you give me one or more references. Thank.


Sure patrice_gray.

1) The form factor of the Dell XPS420's power supply is an ATX form factor.

(The term Form Factor actually refers to Motherboards, but has been used for computer parts such as the Power Supply, and the computer case)

The ATX form factor for an ATX power supply is approximately 6 inches Wide, 5-1/2 inches long, and 3-1/2 inches tall. (6 X 5.5 X 3.5 inches)

The stock 375 Watt PSU (Power Supply Unit) is held in the computer case by 4 Philips head screws, (back side), and two metal clips.
With the new PSU you can just use the 4 screws.

450 Watt minimum?
Know this; A computer ONLY uses the power it needs, and no more.
If you installed a 10,000 Watt unit, and the computer only needed 100 Watts, it would use ONLY 100 Watts. (Typical power consumed by a desktop computer when surfing the internet)

Do I assume that you're going to install a better graphics card?
If so why not avoid hassles in the future, and install an economical PSU that will be ready for future upgrades?

I would recommend an OCZ StealthXStream 600W.
Why?

1) If the temperature of the PSU is kept at, or lower than 118.6 degrees Fahrenheit ,(48.2 Celsius) the PSU is capable of putting out 736.2 Watts reliably,

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/OCZ-StealthXStream-600-W-Power-Supply-Review/451/9

(The above is the 9th page of the article. Here is the 1st page,

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/OCZ-StealthXStream-600-W-Power-Supply-Review/451


2) It has all the power cables you'll need. (Click on the Details tab)

3) It has a 120mm fan mounted on the bottom, and mesh on the back. Better airflow through the computer case.

4) The price. The one in the link is a Re-certified unit.
This means the power supply was sent back to the factory to be tested to their specs. Once found to be good, it is re-certified as a good unit.
(Could be someone bought the unit, and didn't want it. Newegg then sends it back to the factory to be checked out. They don't want to sell a bad power supply)

BEFORE you begin:

Relieve your body of Static before working on your computer.

Computer unplugged from power, and on a table, computer case open.
TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case BEFORE reaching inside the computer.
IF you walk away then return, be SURE to touch the metal frame again.

Power dont come on


Some of the older units did have some trouble with the connection for the power cord. Try to push in the power cord all the way and wiggle it a little bit. If it still doesn't come on the unit needs to be serviced.

The FreshAir has a 3 year factory warranty. Make sure to have the unit registered, or have an invoice showing your purchase date.
You can call EcoQuest support at 1-800-989-2299

2) wait for 30 seconds and put back the power adapter and turn on the printer, and look for the msg on the printer display. if it gives the same error msg with the old as well as the new color cartridge then its an issue with the printer , and if it does not gives the error msg with the older one then its an issue with the cartridge and if you have purchase the cartridge from dell online/phone then call them back give the order no of the cartridge that u have purchased and they will replace it.
