Dell m992 crt monitor

Got a dell m992 monitor about 3 months ago and hooked it up to a dell 2300 computer , well the monitor powered up when i first turned it on but was getting a no input signal from computer. Checked all connections and hooked everything back up and then monitor would not power up again. Took cover off and checked fuse which was okay , looked but could not see anything obvious that may be causing power up problem. NEED HELP !

    Got your msg. and hooked m992 monitor up to one of my other dell computers and still nothing. The m992 will not power up, i have no green light or amber color light to come on the front of monitor. I know that i hooked it up to a working computer cause another monitor i have will work with my dell 2400. When i bought this m992 monitor it was working with a dell 2300 , so i bought both of them. Both the dell 2300 and the m992 monitor were working when i bought them. All i done was take them home and stored them in my computer room for about 3 months. At christmas i got them out of storage hooked them back up and that's when everything went crazy.Like i said when i first hooked everything back up the m992 monitor was working but was telling me that i was getting no input signal from computer. So i have a couple more used crt monitors, i got one of them that i know is working and hooked one of them up to the dell 2300 and that monitor also told me i have no input signal from the 2300. This is so crazy cause all i did when i bought the dell 2300 and the dell m992 they were in good working order and i got a real good deal on both of them that's why i bought them and now that i got them out of storage nothing wants to work right anymore. Don;t know what happen but now i got a 2300 and a m992 that won't work at all now. PLEASE HELP !

    Also to make a note of things, i have 4 computers at home all are dell's which is a dell gx260, 2 dell 2400's and this dell 2300 which is driving me crazy. Everything else is working great , one of my dell 2400's i have converted over to a just for photos and other files which i installed a dvd burner and a 23 in 1 card reader with 4 pci cards that i installed to read all types of media cards and to store movies off of my camcorder of my small child which i am trying to document her childhood as she is growing up. So i am computer literate but this dell 2300 and m992 monitor just doesn't make any sense to me why they won't work after i took them out of storage.

If it's getting no signal, make sure the monitor is set for the correct input. This would be either analog (if your cord has blue ends) or digital (if the connectors are white). Depending on wt yhat your monitor is, a button on the monitor will help you set that. If it's set for the correct input signal, then switch out a different cable to see if perchance you have a bad cable out of the box. If there is another PC or laptop setting around, plug your monitor into that to make sure it's good and maybe even plug THAT monitor into yours to make sure there is nothing wrong with your video card. Let me know what transpires. If this takes care of things, please help me out by rating it accordingly.

    Alas, I am the bearer of bad news. Even in storage, things can break down. This could be a case of a broken power button- rare but not unusual. Of course, if it's clicking but you get no light whatsoever on the power button, I'd lean more heavily towards a bad power supply. Green light would indicate power, orange/amber indicates power coming through but not completely and of course no light is no power. I used to take them apart and try to swap parts with spares but my wife had me toss them all. My fix rate was getting abysmally low anyway.

    I'm assuming that the plug receptacle in the monitor doesn't feel loose in anyway? Nice, tight and secure? Since everything else works normaly, you probably have nothing to lose opening the monitor and checking for the obvious loose wiring etc. Maybe try unplugging/plugging back in the wiring you see. That helped me once.

    Sorry I have no definite answer to help you out completely on this one.

Out of frequency

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!
