    My dell 2005FPW also is flashing. The 1 on the bottom of the monitor (green), the power button (green) and the screen blink about every second. I can hear a faint high pitch noise coming from the monitor in the back every time it flashes.

I was having the same problem.
I solved it by replacing the two 47µF capacitors on the power supply/inverter board.
I actually removed all the capacitors (around 13) and all checked out fine except for the two 47µF.
I forgot to take pictures or even write down the capacitor label on the board.
They are located close to the logic board connector

Dell 2005FPW screen turns black after a second ,can not get it back on


this is a fairly common problem. The backlight circuit is probably shot. Not much to do but replace the monitor.

My dell 2005fpw flashing screen


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.

Power light flashes monitor does not turn on hear little chirping sound and see a little light flashing inside the back of the monitor


Check and replace burned high voltage ballast transformer and busted backlight inverter...

Too risky to do it yourself without proper knowledge and right tools..

Suggest you bring your monitor to a credible technician to have your parts replace and avail of warranty if there is still..


Much apprreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

I have a Dell 2005fpw and about three days ago i got the black screen of death but I saw a blue flash right before it happened. I am trying to open it but their is no clear way on how to accomplish...


brady818, Yes! Getting it open is the hardest thing to do!!! You will need to view some video clips at youtube of "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" to see how others open their units. "PARTING" the rear cover from the front "bezel" can be a real hassel. Always work on a soft padded surface! Carpet, rug, blanket, bed. You must always protect the LCD PANEL at all costs!!!! Determine how to remove PEDESTAL first. Could be screws or push to release locking tabs!!! May need plastic credit card, very, very DULL "butter" or "table" knife and or screwdriver. Hint: Document your "tear-down" with digital stills of your progress so you can get it back together without "extra parts" laying around. 12fixlouie

My moniter no longer turns on


Sounds like you blew something out inside. Take it to a tech. We can't possibly diagnose it in this forum.

Flashing on and off


I would suggest trying another monitor to rule out your PC or monitor card. I would also check the video settings on the PC. Then assuming your cable/connector and video card are okay, it sounds like a lamp or lamp driver (a.k.a. ballast or inverter) issue. In other words, an internal issue that probably needs component-level troubleshooting.
