Hello,

This is a common problem with the E197 units. The problem is caused by a failure of the filter capacitors on the power supply board, they are not holding a charge like they should and it takes several power cycles to get them charged up so the monitor turns on. The E197 uses the same power supply that the E177 uses. Here is a link to a repair guide for the E177 with video disassembly and repair instructions that will help you get your monitor going again.

SOURCE: Dell LCD monitor suddenly loses power

Hello,

Five years is a long time for an LCD panel. You definetly got your money's worth.

But, if your trouble shooing has led you to this conclusion I can also only conclude that the power driver inside your panel just gave up the ghost.

However, try giving Dell a call, for what's thats worth and see what they have to say.

You might also want to ask this expert "Robotek" what he may think as he is a board troubleshooter and could give you an answer if one is there.

Type this or copy and paste into your browser's address bar:

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.

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.

SOURCE: Dell flat screen monitor does not come on after

Sounds like a capacitor on the power strip inside the monitor is failing.
The cost to repair can run $400.00. A tv repair shop may be able to fix it, but most technicians recommend buying a new monitor.
However, if you are experienced in electronics, you can disassemble the monitor and replace the capacitor. Radio Shack sells them for between $15 to $20.

SOURCE: I have a dell 19-7 fp monitor that only stay on

The problem can be caused by bad caps in the power supply, bad inverter circuits, or bad lamps. You need to open it up and look inside and post back so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

How do I get my HP computer to boot into windows when I turn it on


mine can boot to 7 things, not just the first hard disk.
usb mem, sd, hdd0,1,CD, and more..
no computer stated by you of th 10,000 models. 1984 to now.
what windows, 14 versions exist.
XP? what?
when you turn the PC the booting is a serial process. (ends at windows login screen)
first it runs BIOS< ROM,
the BIOS ROM, runs POST, (self tests and Plug and PLay)
then BIOS jumps to the first thing in the list (boot order)
and boots to the HDD #0 (default ) F9 key I can change that.' on the fly...
so first is what:?
  1. if a laptop get that bad main battery out first, now
  2. use AC power pack only, NOW. lap or desk top.
  3. does the PCs fan run? (my desk top has 4) if not, power is bad.
  4. does the CD eject? (button) if not power is bad.
  5. does the screen ever show text? like Hit ESC to enter SETUP?> as it did every day since new?
  6. if yes, good, no bad. (bad CCFL lamps>)?
  7. yes, then see if ESC works, F10 , F1 info page work in BIOS.
  8. yes, good, see , now you can boot to 7 things if want.
  9. but if the HDD is bad, you cant boot to that. if its bad.
  10. we run HDD test no as shown on the HP page on topic.
  11. then we try (2006 and newer) the F11 magic recover method.

if the PC is older than 2010, it can in fact have bad CCFL lamps
even PC that are desk tops , the eternal monitor same.

AOC 917sw starts normally then goes black after a few seconds?


More than likely, you have set the resolution too high for the monitors capabilities. Set the computer to a lower resolution, and try again. If using windows, try to boot in safe mode to accomplish this. Other OS's can take variables at boot also to do the same. You'll have to search for yours.

Good luck.

Hi.i have a dell e521 with a e197 fp monitor. when i turn the system on the monitor stays in stand-by mode. so i have a black screen,is it broken?


not really.. theres a possibility that the monitor is just on standby mode. try to disconnect the power cable of the monitor, then hold the power button of the monitor to drain its flea power. put the power cable back then try it again.

if its going to do the same thing, check the connection of the monitor at the back of the computer. see if its seated properly.

try restarting the computer..

try draining the flea power on the computer as well, possible that the computer is in standby or hibernate mode..

How do I change the resolution on my fuji plus FP-988D 19 inch monitor


Monitor resolution is done at the PC, not at the monitor, right click on the desk top, slect properties, display property will come up, select setting. You should set it to match your monitor native resolution for best picture.

When I switch my windows XP Home Edition on instead of the usual gradual build up to Desk Top & icon programmes etc. I get the usual large black screen but instead of the windows motif appearing I get...


The results you are seeing are actually from the monitor itself. It's telling you the vertical and horizontal sync frequencies to help you troubleshoot your lack of display.

You'd usually see this happen when someone has set the resolution too high, and the monitor just can't handle it.

Power up, and keep tapping F8 until you get a Windows boot menu. Choose "safe mode", let it boot to windows. Go to display properties, and then settings. The slider for the resolution will now be right down. (left-most). Click it once, so that the apply button becomes valid. Hit apply and let it restart.

You should now boot to Windows normally, but with a very low resolution. Go back to display settings and bump it up one step at a time, using the apply button. (which will revert back one step if you don't hit "yes" within 20 seconds).

That way, you can find a resolution that looks right, but isn't too high for your screen.
