Question about Dell 19"" 1907fpt dvi rotating lcd monitor w/usb 2.0 hub silver/black

1 Answer

Dell 1907fpt Have the same problem as other posts here. Screen comes on for a few seconds and then turns off. Heard an electrical arcing in the back and found the problem, the backlight wire had been cut into by the metal frame. fixed the arcing problem but the screen still turns off after a few seconds. None of the solder joints appear bad and the capacitors are working fine. Can anyone help me figure out what else it could be?

    The power source works fine. The back lights work fine. The problem is somewhere in the circuit board on the LCD panel it self. What component will cause it to come on until warmed up then shut off. when first turned on it stays on for a sec longer than after it shuts off and then turned back on.

    I have a replacement from an earlier model of the same monitor. I have components available to use from that one, tried putting the panel into the back light and case for the other screen but same problem of coming on then shutting of occurs

SOURCE: I have a Dell monitor model #1901FP when my

The solution I am about to describe refers to a backlight problem, which is most common in Dell 15,17 & 19" monitors. The symptoms are as you describe:

  • You power on the monitor, the green on/off switch illuminates and the display works for approx 1-2 seconds and then goes blank.
  • The green on/off switch stays illuminated but the screen remains blank
  • If you shine a torch into the LCD matrix you can see the display being rendered faintly
  • Switching the monitor off and then on again illuminates the display again for 1-2 seconds before going blank again
This is a backlight fault and is most likely to be caused by the failure of two of the four driver transistors used to light the lighting tubes in the LCD Matrix. This fault is easy to repair if you (or a friend) have a soldering iron and a voltmeter.

Inside the monitor there is an inverter board that acts as a power supply for the monitor and the logic necessary to control the backlights (illumination and brightness control). There are four lighting tubes, which are controlled by two lighting circuits (two lighting tubes per circuit). At the heart of the inverter board is a chip that monitors feedback from the two lighting circuits and closes the back-light circuit down if either of the lighting circuits fail, thus any component failure will exhibit the same symptoms.

The transistors which fail most often cost pence to replace (types C5706 or C5707). However, their failure in unlikely to be the cause of the problem. My first crack at fixing this fault, by replacing the transistors, resulted in them failing again within 24/48Hrs. The cause of the problem will be dry solder joints or loose connections on the high-voltage side of the circuit, usually on the backlight transformer in the effected circuit. If you re solder each of the connectors on the transformer you will save the transistors from blowing again - the transformer generates 1,400Volts for the lighting tubes and at this voltage, arcing across the a dry solder joint, will quickly destroy the transistors again.

No soldering iron? - A complete inverter board replacement is also reasonably cheap and easy repair. These are widely available.

Sorry of this is more detail than you expected but it may help others reading this article.

SOURCE: Dell Latitude LCD screen is dark, but computer is still working.

It sounds like the backlight has burned out. The faint light you are seeing is ambient light in your room being reflected through the LCD. Try it in a perfectly dark room and see if you can see anything on the screen. The following page should give you a sense of what is involved in replacing a backlight: If you aren't comfortable taking things like this apart, I would recommend finding a local repair shop to replace the backlight.

SOURCE: tried to fix dell e172fpb

You must re-solder all the transformer joints (four of them next to the transistors) for a fix. There are cold joints on the transformers that break, causing the transistors to fail. Reheat the joints and add just a TOUCH of solder to them on each and every lead. Don't use too much solder, or you'll cross connect the leads.

That'll fix it.

Turns over hard, acting like it want to start, plugs have gas on them a little, but it still wont start , it's an 88 LeSabre Limited with the 3800

If the plugs themselves are wet the whole sparking process won't work; the plugs must be dry basically.
Here's what you should try: remove all of the spark plugs and let the whole thing sit open to dry/air out over night.
Or, the thing I've heard from crazy people... remove the plugs and flash the plugs and plug-holes over a few times with a propane torch(be sure to get the plug wires out of the way). Be prepared for fire coming from the plug holes, burn off all that gas from the plugs and from inside the holes.
At this point you shouldn't need to let things sit open since everything burned up... re-insert and tighten up your plugs, hook the wires back up & give it a go.
Another issue encountered, and although it didn't prevent the vehicle from starting, it did cause issues, was that we had a cracked plug. Either move the vehicle into a dark building, or wait for it to get dark outside, and open the hood up. While trying to start, see if you can identify dancing arc's or flashes coming from under the hood... to assist in making things more obvious people suggest spraying water from a misting sprayer over the plug wires(those can potentially fail causing electricity to arc from them as well). Any arc that happens outside of the cylinder is robbing your vehicle of spark/firing power.

Also, as a visual check for spark... remove one plug from a hole and hook its wire to it. Touch the threads of the plug to a bare metal part on the engine and have someone else try to start the car... you should be able to see it sparking. And don't worry, the open cylinder doesn't put out enough gas/fumes to cause an explosion in the few seconds it takes to perform the spark inspection.
If you notice that the plug isn't sparking, make sure that you're grounded to the vehicle and try again. If you cannot get spark at all, your problem is electrical and that will require a more technical approach: cap, rotor, coil, igniter, fuses - somewhere in there.
I hope that turns out well for you.

Tom (Tchange): I also had arc/pop/short of SSB like g_royer. This was preceded over a few days by the Element ON indicator always ON (with all surface select switches OFF). I found the arc marks and burns on the SSB and replaced it. Element ON indicator went OUT, but like you, element no longer heats. I just checked continuity for each of the relays on the Lockout Board. In spite of the error designation on the Wiring Diagram (swapping P3 with P6), I found an OPEN relay for that element. Now to order the Lockout Board, just like g_royer.

96 Continental radio, no audio

I have the SAME EXACT problem. I thought it was the radio - bought another - went to change the units - heard an electrical arc - now the car cranks but doesn't start and the new radio doesn't work either!!! (not that it matters anyway)
Is there an electrical problem with '96 Lincoln's. Where should I start to diagnose the non-starting issue?

Cornerstone p1600 flickering / arcing

Yes, dust accumulation will cause this and sometimes humidity.
You probably wont find much about arcing in a product manual.

The High voltage comes off the horizontal drive circuit through a transformer. Flickering says the CRT and the circuit is working. You just are getting a high voltage arc to a ground source before the CRT.

If you open this up, use extreme caution. You will be dealing with high voltage. Consider it a STUN-GUN! If you have a heart condition JUST SAY NO. Go shop for a new flat panel and recycle your old friend. I understand. I too am a hard sell if it can be fixed.

Place it in a dark room, turn it on and observe where the arcs are coming from and going to. TURN IT OFF. UNPLUG IT FROM POWER! (Most CRTs have an instant-on when plugged in)

Locate the suction-cup looking connector and wire on the back of the CRT. Use a vacuum first to remove as much dust and lint as possible.

The auto store sells ELECTRONIC CLEANER as well as SILICONE GREASE (for sparkplug wires). Do NOT use any thing that will leave a residue.

Clean the entire wire, connector and socket and any other area that you may have found in the dark test.
Use the silicone sparingly coat the contact area of the socket and wire.

IF there are other arc issues somewhere you may use silicone grease or silicone rubber to repair.

Good Hunting!

Emachine E19T5W Monitor

I have more or less the same problem. Mine only stays on for a second though, but it started out like yours. I took it apart and found that the CCFL bulbs at the top of the screen were so poorly put together that they arced out and in the end melted the end of the back panel bulbs off. The monitor only lasted a year and a half and now it's toast unless I can find new back panal bulbs.
If the screen feels excessivly hot around the corners or if you here a snapping noises (arcing) yours is going the same route as mine. If you want to get rid of yours I'll take it.

You apparently have a high voltage arc. Possibly the anode lead to your picture tube. Also the flyback transformer could be arcing. If you're not experience with tv repair, you need to have a tech check it for you. The circuits operate at very high voltage and if you get into it you can get a possibly fatal electrical shock. Be careful !!! Stargazer
