Question about Dell E151FP 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Model #151FPb purchased used. Words have faded out letters (pixels?) Connected to Emachine computer. Old huge monitor worked perfectly. Also, brightness control doesn't work. Any fix? Or is this a sign I shoulda' bought new? thanks.
Replace the bad capacitors in the power supply. They are usually visually detectable (tops bulged). The ones that usually good bad in that model are 1000mfd. 16v.

One of my customers had the same problem. So last night, I took it apart and found a cold solder connection on a coil that had white goop on it. Goop is usually put on coils to stop oscillations. This is probably an inherrant problem. If you tap the back of the monitor with the back of a screwdrive, it should start working for awhile. Take it apart and take the shield off and do the same till you find the loose component. Don't hit it too hard. When you find the loose component. If you move the component back and and forth, it should work and not work. Take the board off and re-solder the component. Put the board back on and tap it lightly and see if you got the right component. If not repeat the proceedure until it works or pitch it...

I don't know for sure if this will help but it's worth a try. Go to Start, control pannel, system, advanced, performance, settings, and click adjust for best performance. This is a Windows XP fix but the same thing may apply to older OS's (95, 98, 2000, ME, NT (although you may have to set it a diferent way). Many other things could be your problem but this is an easy thing to try.
