    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

Try clicking the auto adjust button on the screen. If this doesn't work it may be in demo mode, so click the fENGINEbutton on the monitor and make sure it is selected on the normal setting.

Hello,

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 badparts, 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 stripe on the old one and insert the newone 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.

7 year old Dell Inspiron 4150 has black screen. If I plug old crt monitor to serial port I get picture there fine. Computer is fine but monitor shot? Do I need a new LCD? Can I get one for $100 or less?


This is a common problem, I don't think the LCD per say is bad. The backlight tube may be bad or the power inverter that powers it may be bad. GO to support.dell.com and search for these parts, get them both and replace them both. It is tricky as you must dissasemble your laptop lid panel.
