Question about Dell SE198WFP LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Dead Monitor Hi guys I have a Dell lcd monitor SE198WFP 18 months old (out of warranty). The monitor will not power on. I have changed the fuse on the plug, only for it to blow the new fuse. I do not wish to throw away as it seems such a waste. Although I have a multimeter my knowledge of electronics is nil. I imagine there must be a fault in the monitor that is blowing the fuse and would appreciate any guidance you can provide.

Blue light on with blank screen dell SE198WFP monitor


It depends on what type of connection you are using. If you are using a VGA (analog) cable then you need to select that mode on your monitor menu. If you are using a DVI (digital) cable then you need to choose that mode on you monitor menu.

I have a Dell SE198WFP Flat Panel Monitor, screen goes black?


The LCd panel may be damaged and will cause this problem.

Another thing is overheating of the GPU.

The LCD signal receiver can be goign on you.

The is also the possibility of a faulty inverter.

Only thing to do is service or replace. Test the unit on another computer, if you don't get the issue there then you know its a problem with the PC.

Dell SE198WFP 19" LCD won't come out of standby


I went into the BIOS (with F2 during restart) and changed a value -- IIRC it was called something like "power management scheme" -- from the default S3 to the other choice, S1. Now the old Dell XP Dimension 2350 will go into and out of Standby correctly and the new SE198WFP 19" LCD will too.

MONITOR COMES ON FINE I GET A FLICKER AND THE SCREEN GOES BLACK


Hi,
 
It’s very likely your monitor has failed. Most Dell monitors have a 3 year warranty, so if you got it before three years, you could get it replaced by calling Dell. If you got the monitor with the computer, you can check your warranty online from with your computer Service Tag from http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?c=us&l=en&s=gen . If you bought the monitor separately, you would need an Order Number or Customer Number for the purchase, or you could call Dell support and they could pull it out with your registered phone number. Dell would also need the serial number (starting with CN XXX..) from the back of the monitor.

MY DELL SE198WFP GOES TO POWER SAVE MODE AFTER 2 SECONDS


I had this problem as well as a lot of other people. The solution is to go to the power options in the control panel and turn power saver off. This should keep the monitor from going into power saving mode.
