    I have the same problem with 20 in monitor

  • potter3 Jan 06, 2009

    My 17" Dell monitor (Dimension 2400 pc package) does the same. However, if I push down ******* the top of the monitor a few times, I can get it to come to life. But the issue returns everytime the pc is turned on after a period of being turned off. I have given up using any power saving settings because this was happening many times during the day and even while doing email or using the web.

We have the same problem and think that the monitor may be getting too warm with staying on all of the time. Try to turn off the monitor when you arent using it. It might save you some time while you look for another monitor.

You will need a new monitor screen. I have had two screens go on me recently and what you describes normally happens

The monitor is only 2 years old. less then 50


If you left it plugged into the outlet, the power supply is still running 24/7 even you never trun it on! Look inside for bad caps first, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

My monitor screen goes black


The monitor is going bad. Either going to be a bad screen or a bad inverter. Also Since you tried it on another computer and its still giving you the same symptoms, you know the computers are fine. To be sure, try another monitor on your computer and if you get video on the new monitor then thats another way of verifying that the dell monitor is bad.
