Question about Dell E153FP 15" LCD Monitor
A circuit breaker popped, and when reset the PC started fine, but the monitor didn't. It's a 15 inch flat panel. The power light will blink from orange to green, and there will be a momentary flicker on the screen (it's too quick to tell if there is any content or if it's plain white) each time the light changes from orange to green. It behaves as if it's in sleep mode, but nothing I do will wake the monitor. It does this regardless of which PC it's attached to and other monitors work fine on the PC. We had surge protection on both pc and monitor. Is there a way to reset the monitor? It's a Dell E153PC 15 inch TFT LCD Flat Panel. There are four buttons on the front of the monitor, one is the menu, one has a plus sign, one has a minus sign, and the fourth is the power button. I have discovered that if I hold the minus sign button down, the power light will change to just orange and stay that way unless I disconnect power then it will return to the blinking state. I also cannot shut the monitor off with the power button. I've tried holding buttons down when I connect power, in all combinations, to no avail, I set up a computer to go into sleep mode, connected the monitor, then woke up the computer with no luck, I placed a PC in hibernation, connected the monitor, woke up the PC, and no luck there either. Is there something I'm missing? I've swapped out the cable with one that I know works and that didn't help, I've replaced the power cable (I know, but I'm desperate) and that didn't help either. Any further ideas would be most welcome.
I would suggest that the "Event" that caused the CB to trip has caused ya Monitor to fail.. Probably in the Power Supply, My "Pet" area... lol.. anyway Thats wat I would think. It may even have an internal "Fuse" that has "Blown"?
