E153FP Monitor screen goes black light is green

My dell monitor screen keeps going black after being on for a few seconds. If I turn it on and off the picture is there for about 5 seconds then the monitor goes black. It is definitly a monitor issue, I've put a different monitor on the computer and its working fine, also tested the flat panel on my laptop and had the same issues. I looked for a reset button cant find one anywhere or how you even get the back off of the monitor.It is now out of warrenty and I am not sure how to go about fixing this problem.

The capacitors are probably bad. It is a common problem and easily fixed by taking it apart and replacing the capacitors. Try to find Rubycon Capacitors because they very rarely go bad. Do a search on google for bad caps. I have fixed about 30 monitors this way. Dell is a company well known for bad capacitors. It may not be your problem but replacing the capacitors should cost less than $10 if you do it yourself. www.photphot.com

I agree. The capacitors have popped. I found a local TV repair shop and the guy put new capacitors on the board for me for $5, so it's an easy fix. The monitor is difficult to get apart, but if you'll look carefully you can see small slots in the plastic, mine were on the bottom side, then insert a very tiny flat screwdriver carefully seperating the cover, using a slightly larger screwdriver in the gap, twist gently until the case pops open. Remember to take all the screws out of the exterior, and not to push the screwdriver in too far and scratch the screen. Good Luck.

Dell Inspirion 546 screen keeps going black


It sounds like a hardware fault, does it happen when the laptop is cold or does it start to go faulty after its been on a while, if it goes faulty after its been on a while, its more than likely that the fan cooler is all blocked up with dust, and will need to be cleaned. Hope this helps.

Dell 1908FP monitor goes black after a few seconds


As I scrolled through your solution a smile began to creep over my face starting with "this can be lethal." Each picture frame I scrolled past began to formulate my strategy. Your instructions could not have been more clear and precise, detailed, easily understood. When I reached the last picture my plan was put into action. Off to buy a new monitor lol, you must have the patience of Job. Thanks.

Screen goes blank when first turned on, have to keep restarting m


Hello,

If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

My dell monitor will only turn on for a few seconds then it goes black. it doesnt turn of it just goes black and I can keep doing it and it will keep going black.


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Samsung monitor picture clicks off after 2-5 seconds...


Yes, It sounds like the backlight inverter circuit is shutting down. No inverter power, no backlight. On some monitors the inverter circuit will shot circuit the power power supply which makes the power light flash on some it just kills the backlight. You can usually check with a flashlight. Hold the flashlight pointed at the screen and see if you can see any of the icons or background picture. If you can then it is the backlight circuit or backlight tubes, usually the circuit.

The screen went black after few seconds.


Hello Chris,

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 he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the strip on the old one and insert the new one the same way. 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.

Video (picture) must be constantly entering a monitor for a monitor to continue to display a picture after it self tests (goes on for a second or, two) Your monitor is fine; check it using another known good computer.
