Question about Dell UltraSharp 1905FP 19" LCD Monitor

Dog Hair under protective coating on monitor

I have a short hair dog and when her fur gets on my monitor I use "Dust Off" compressed air to blow it off. This has caused the fur to get under the screens protective cover so now I can't get to it to remove it. How do I open my Dell LCD Monitor so that I can blow/clean/remove the Pet Hair caught in the middle? The back of the monitor has 4 screws but they don't seem to allow me to open the monitor. Is there a way to get between the protective plastic screen and the LCD? Thanks!

Re: Dog Hair under protective coating on monitor

Get your Dell manual out and look in the index for lcd cover. It should tell you how to take it off and maintain it. If things get behind it it should be removable. Also is very informative with their support group.

Monitor does not show images when computer is turned on until computer is re started sometimes several times, and/or several keys on keyboard are hit.While screen is black a ticking sound is...

Likely a bad power supply board, and that is almost ALWAYS a bad capacitor on the board. They cost under a dollar to purchase a replacement.

Before you fire the computer up next, try running your hair-dryer (yes, your hair-dryer!) and blowing hot air into the innards of the monitor.

If it starts then with no problem, you have "aced" what it needs for a proper repair: a new capacitor on the power supply board, and you can Google for the parts and the instructions.

My monitor takes long time to come on why

Your power supply board has a "flakey" capacitor on it.

It will soon fail, I can guarantee you that. The replacement component is likely less than a dollar, but figuring out which one it is can take a bit of sleuthing.

Try blowing hot air from the hair-dryer into the back when powering it on, it should speed things up a bit.

The solution is to have it repaired. The "Fixya" here is DON'T TURN IT OFF, because then you won't have to worry about it turning back on!

I have a monitor that I have been using the hair-dryer "trick" on for YEARS.

If I reboot the computer, and the monitor is already hot, I have to wait for it to cool before the hair-dryer trick will work again.

Have fun!

Help my monitor pixels are a mess lines going through

your panel is faulty and has loose connections in the wiring from the card to the actual lcd panel sides. You could try opening it up and blowing on the sides with a hair dryer to see if they will reseat. Has the unit been in high heat lately? I have seen this occur in cases where the screen has been sitting in a hot car and allowed the connections to loosen from heat that way. There are companies that will reseat the connectors if you can not get it going, but it is somewhat expensive. Try the hair dryer though first.

Viewsonic E70f monitor goes standby by message OFF MODE IN 5SEC

off mode in 5 sec,problem represents that the data cable is not properly connected or the monitor is unable to recognize the connection once check your key board lights above the num pad when you switch on the PC if the lights appear . Then the power supply is not provided to only the monitor unplug the data cable and plug it again properly,even if doesnt solve your problem just shake the data cable receiver pin located to the back of the monitor.

If the lights on the keyboard does not appear the problem is within the cabinet it may occur due to the dust too,so clean it properly , using a hair drier for blowing the dust is better.

Hope this would solve your problem.

My wifes dog chewed the cable that is hard wired into the lcd .

If it's the screw on type on both ends (I'm assuming it's the video cable), you can unscrew both ends and get another VGA cable (under 10 dollars each).
If not, you might want to consider keeping the dog away from cables, it was lucky not to chew on charged wires.
