If it is still inside the three year monitor warranty period I would recommend calling tech support to have it replaced. Larry Dell Customer Advocate

My monitor is on but the backlight is off. When you swicht the monitor at first, the lights come and go. I did check the inverter side and i fund out that pair of the driver transistors were dead. I did...

When you replace the transistors you should change all 4 of the C5707 transistors. You also need to resolder all of the connections to the 4 output transformers and the 4 output plug connections. If you did not resolder the these additional connections then the new transistors you install are more the likely dead now. The solder joints can crack because of the current and this causes the circuit to pull more amps than the transistors can handle. The new ones will blow within 2-3 seconds if you did not resolder the other connections.

Benq 567s lcd monitor does not power up. Switch led blinks but goes dead. Tried replacing capacitor 450v 82uf with 400v 100 uf but did not work. please help.

That cap is for the Primary power supply switching circuits. How is the DC secondary side, no blown fuse, shorted transistors in the inverter circuits? Pictures will help,
It may have the same bd as DELL since BenQ makes monitors for DELL and HP.

I have a 4.5" black strip running down my 2001 fp monitor screen. What do I need to correct it.

Note: Soundbar Power Connector - 12V DC output is for optional Dell Soundbar only. .
  1. Working from the rear of the monitor, attach Soundbar by aligning the two slots with the two tabs along the bottom rear of the monitor.
  2. Slide the Soundbar to the left until it snaps into the place.
  3. Insert the black DC plug from the power cable at the back of the Soundbar into the DC Jack on the back of the Flat Panel Monitor.
  4. Insert the lime green mini stereo plug from the rear of the Soundbar into the Computer's audio output jack.

I am trying to clone my lapptop image with a samtron 73.v and the samtron seems dead :-( It says Test Good but does not work

Most laptops have three video-settings:
* output only to internal screen
* output only to external monitor
* output to both internal and external

Select the appropriate video-setting.

Set your laptop's screen-resolution to 800-by-600 by 60Hz -- a resolution that should be compatible with any 15" Samtron monitor.

Monitor is totally dead

Through my past experience I mwould remove the solder point at the input power B+ line to primary winding FBT. If the HOT has shorted there will be no power.Straight to the point if you know where the HOT is , you can desolder the middle pin or collector of the HOT transistor. If you desolder the pin which result the power led light turn up. That indicates either FBT or HOT has shorted

Dell E178FPf LCD monitor goes to standby and won`t come on again

Check your Power options in Windows.

right click on the desktop. select properties, Gop to the screen saver tab, click on the power button at the bottom right and check to see if its set to turn off or standby the monitor, turn this off.

Keep the screen saver on and set it for like ten minutes.

Also, on the monitor itself, it may have a sleep or power save option set as the default. check all the monitor settings on the actual moniotr itself.
