Question about Dell UltraSharp 1900FP 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Extreme ghosting Hello! I'm trying to decide whether to buy a second hand Dell 1900FP 19" TFT monitor (manufactured 2/2002) which according to the seller has been trough some difficulties: For some reason there started to be "extreme ghosting" in the screen, meaning that in the end even the mouse cursor started to create a trail. The outcome of the ghosting resulted in a virtually unreadable screen full off color mush (slightly non-technical term). After trying to repair it and not finding any problems he reassembled the unit and found out that it didn't power-on anymore. Dear gurus of computer technology, what do you think? Should I buy the unit (for a very cheap price) or is it beyond repair already...? Thank you very much in advance. I hope I would be able to give you more information.

Re: Extreme ghosting

From where I sit, understanding LCD's and all thier quirks I would buy it.

From where you are with your technical terms you can go 2 ways.. both good.

If you can get this cheap and have no expectation of getting it to work, it could be a valuable learning tool for you in future screens.
Secondly, you could open it up and find a few dead capacitors that have been messing with the power supply to the panel and causing the issue, correct it for a few dollars and get it running again.

Like I said, it's really a win win as long as you accept before you do it that it may just end up being something to help you later on.

Go to GOOGLE and type DRIVERS for your exact product and model of monitor, which will hopefully give you the correct drivers to download. Softonic would be one place to look. CNET would be another.

Open and look at the tops of the capacitors. I bet there are at least 2-3 "bulging" tops. Replace them and the problem WILL be solved;.

My dell went off after few seconds, the power light is still on. I checked inside and saw the transformer EPC-19 sparking. on the side of epc-19 there is another number : 0101NH25G. Please tell me where or...

Only place I can find them is to go to ebay and type epc-19 in the search bar. They have some in stock for $20

Also many dell monitors have a 3 year warranty's worth calling 866-876-3355 and ask them if the monitor is indeed under warranty or not.
