    I have a dell E228WFP flat panel monitor that is just under a year old. In the past 4 days or so when I sign in, the monitor screen goes blank. Time intervals vary between 10 min to 2 sec before monitor goes blank. I did monitor diagnostic check disconnecting white cable..self test dialog box appeared for a few minutes..then that went blank too. One interesting note though...if you place a flashlight angled against the monitor screen, you can see a "faint display" of the current web page. Upon further researching, I came across a similar complaint with this response...."If monitor is LCD, place flashlight against screen and if you see a faint display,backlight or power module is kaput". Upon writing this, I did happen to swap out with a smaller/cheaper monitor that I had as a spare, and for about 1 hour now....problem seems to have disappeared...at least for now. Hopefully my new monitor is still under warrenty. Can anyone offer help or comments??

The unit will probably require electronic troubleshooting in the power supply / inverter section internally.

Look for bad caps, shorted transistors, fuse, cold solder joints.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

I have a Dell E173FP 17" monitor. The screen goes blank after a few seconds. When I press the on/off button to turn it back on, it comes back on for a few seconds and goes blank again.

You may have to open it up and look for bad soderling works, see my pictures to see what bad solderign joints look like. Also check fuses, connectors, etc.

Screen Goes Blank


Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

Dell E173FP - After sometime the screen switches off


Sorry not a solution - but I have started experiencing the exact same problem over the last month although sometimes, on switching on again, it will run for 10-15 minutes before the problem re-emerges. Initially I put it down to the v. hot weather in July but it still continues. So I would also appreciate any solutions!
