Dell E152FPc Monitor powers up, and screen goes blank in 5-10 sec

The power indicator light stays on but the screen goes blank. If I turn it off and then on again, it does the same thing.

    I left my pc and monitor on for a while. When I tried to get the monitor to "wake", it remained blank. I know it's working as the powersave message appears on the screen, but the monitor doesn't appear to be talking to the computer. Mouse or keyboard clicks don't wake it up. I've tried restarting, I've plugged and unplugged and actually turned off the power to the units and tried restarting, but my monitor won't wake up.

    Monitor is new. Goes blank or half the screen goes blank. Won't wake up when it's left on.

    I'm having this monitor problem too, at first, I thought it was with the cable we got, the VGA one that connects to the monitor, but when we got a new cable, the problem re-surfaced, so I'm certain it has to do with the video card or something.

Ok every one there is a fix the are 4 transistor 2sc5707 and 2 transistorfu9024n and i cap 16v1000uf
if you replace these your problem will be fix for a while but to it better then dell replace the 2sc57o07 with radio shack tip3055 they are 15 amp trans instead of the low 8 amp dell uses they fail because the amps at the test for the transistor is more than 8amps all the correct parts are sold in a kit on ebay look up the 2sc5707 but i recommend upgrading to the tip3055 transistors they are a bigger transistor but you can lay them down and they work great. the capicator can be found at radio 35v1000uf is a good replacment make you monitor better because the new parts are stronger then the originals so no more failures after.

At the suggestion of a friend, I turned my powerstrip off, and turned it back on a minute later. Believe it or not, the monitor started working again.

I'm working on the same problem now; it could be the power supply or the inverter board, I'm not sure which yet, but when/if I have a solution, I will post my results.

Screen goes blank when first turned on, have to keep restarting m


Hello,

If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

I have a Dell E152fpc monitor that turns on and then goes blank after a couple seconds.The power light is on but the screen goes blank. I tried to update the driver from dell but it is impossible to do so...


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

mark587, Did you shine a very bright flashlight 1" from the screen to try and see the WIN-desktop ?? Even though the screen appears BLACK. Your words above said: JUST CAN'T SEE IT Did you really NOT see anything? Have you seen any of the longer video clips of "LCD Monitor Disassembly" on YOUTUBE? Some BLACK screen "symptom" lcd displays can be repaired for less than $10 in parts. Capacitors! Also check videos on lcd repair. Then get back here to fixya and I or any of the guys can help you decide what to do with your display whoose screen is now dark and lifeless. After doing the YOUTUBE thing you may even tell us what you will do!!! Hope this was helpful. Yes we do want to hear back from you. please rate this response on fixya. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com. Bye for now.

After monitor is turned on, it goes blank after a few seconds...


Sounds like the cable that connects the monitor to the computer hass a loose wire connection in it.
When it turns green, try flexing the cable near the connectors and see if the color changes on the monitor. I suspect that you have a wire in the cable that was not soldered properly by the manufacture.
If it changes color, I'd contact who you bought it from and have them replace it.
Hope thid helps. Bud

Monitor only stays on for 30 sec. & then goes off then if I remove the power cord & re-power it up it comes on for another 30 sec. then goes back off


Howdy folks. There are only 3 things that can go wrong with a screen. Since you both are experiencing the same symptoms, let's ask the same question: When the screen goes blank, is the power button still green or is it orange? A green light indicates a good power supply and a bad screen. An orange light indicates a bad power supply but a good screen. I used to take them apart and try to fix them but they just aren't worth the trouble because they are so inexpensive nowadays.
Either way, I'm the bearer of bad news. It looks like you'll both be getting new screens. Please don't hold it against me when you rate my solution! ;-)

POWERSAVE


I have A "Dell" E152FPc, and I have found an open transistor (Q201) on the Power Supply Board. My monitor comes on nice and bright for approximately 2 seconds, then goes dark; the power LED is steady. The voltage to the PWM IC is waky.
Before you try any hardware troubleshooting go to your control panel and turn off any power management options.
