Question about Dell E151FP 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Dell 151fp is slow to get going, fine otherwise

5 1/2 year old Dell 151fp works fine once it gets going. The problem is that it takes 5-10 minutes to "warm up" after being turned on.Thescreen remains blank during this time. It sometimes seems to help if you click the mouse or press a key on the keyboard. I hooked up my new Dell 1707fp and it worked fine. I called Geek Squad and they said they've never heard of that problem, I should buy a new one. It also takes several minutes to get going if left on when the computer is turned off.

05 cts when iturn the key the engine does not stat just a click 2 or 3 times the it starts and it does not sound healthy( im from winnipeg minus 25 don't plug car in) when it warms up it does strt fine...

If it's the original battery, it's 12 years old and way beyond it's useful life. If replaced once, the second battery is probably near the end of its life, five to six years

If you're near a Wal-Mart super store, get a new battery installed if the other is old, five to six years They have good prices and top rated batteries by CR. While you're there and if it's -25 (C or F since the scales are concurrent about that point) go to snack shop and warm up with a nice hot cocoa or hot cup of coffee. Sometimes its free in the customer lounge.

Good Luck

Projection television acting like an old picture tube TV.

Yes, I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:

Extremely long warm up time 25 minutes. ok once it comes on.

Just a shot in the dark- I think your main projection lamp is going bad- If the set is more than a year or 2 old it can happen. Unfortunately they are a little expensive.
How is the brightness level after it warms up??

Dell laptop gets hot quickly

Get some compressed air from Radio Shack or other place that sells it (unless you have a small compressor) and blow out the laptop. My laptop gets dusty very quickly since I live in the desert and I blow it out at least once a week to keep it from overheating. You will be amazed at how much dust will come out. Let me know if this helps.

Delay to see the picture

Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.
