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.

Re: E153FP Monitor screen goes black light is green

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.

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.

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


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.

The screen on my computer (dell E153FP 15" lcd) keeps going black everytime I turn it on. I can still see a very dark picture and the green light is still on but I can't see much. Usually I just turn it...

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Problems with Dell E153FP 15" LCD Monitor goes out to black green light flickers.....If i hit it a few times or more the screen on the pedestral come times that works too. No loss wire connection

Check 4 transistors (c5706/5707) for shorts in the inverter transformer driving circuits, this is a common failure. A lot of solder joints will also need to be resoldered. Check for bad capacitors also.
