Question about Dell E196FP 19" LCD Monitor

Black screen, White blinking line on bottom of Monitor

When I extend any laptop onto my monitor the whole screen goes black, with a white blinking line only at the very bottom of the monitor screen. I've tested it with a few other laptops so i know the problem is the monitor. I have also used my laptop with this monitor on the same settings for over a year now so it's a new problem that occurred after i transported it on a trip. When the monitor isn't connected to a computer teh selftest works just fine, and when used as the main monitor on a desktop computer it works fine, the problem only occurs when extending the display from my laptop.

During the move was your laptop dropped or bumped ? If so you might of unseated the video adapter from your laptop. Have you tried another monitor? I wouldnt rule the monitor as the problem. Try another monitor. If you have more questions or problems feel free to get back to me and I will do my best to talk you through a solution.

If the problem is with laptop monitor, try restarting the computer. If problem remains, try connecting your laptop to external monitor to see if problem is with laptop monitor or with display adapter.

If picture also like this with external monitor and with laptops own monitor after reboot, possible HW issue can be expected.

Hi, I have a Dell 23 in monitor. Everything was working fine but one day we turned it on and it's completely white. The whole screen is just white. Is it there a simple solution?

please remove the vga cable from the back of the monitor, make sure that you don't remove the power cable from the back of your monitor.
If you see the power on self test or any other pattern of colors in the screen, if the screen display remains white or goes black it would mean that the monitor has gone bad.

Hope it helps.

Thanks and Regards

My monitor will only blink a black or white screen.

check the warranty online for your screen.. go the the acer support website and look up warranties, and it will ask for a really long number on the back of your screen, and it will tell how long the warranty is good for and what to do with it.
Mine is doing the same thing. flashes white then black and that is all

Yes. There is no vertical deflection. The circuit that controls vertical deflection is bad. This is an easy fix for a TV tech. Take it to the TV repair shop.
