Question about Dell E153FP 15" LCD Monitor
My dell monitor is tripping off as soon as soon as the cpu comes on
I had this problem with two E153FP monitors. I cracked open the case, yes cracked, there are no screws just two slots at the bottom where you can pry it open with a screw driver. Pry around the edge and it opens up. Then you can disassemble down to the power supply. Find a large 1000uF 16V electrolytic capacitor and replace it. I did not have a 1000uF 16V cap, so I used a 940uF 50V cap. It works and I think the higher voltage rating will make it more reliable.

Leave the monitor off.
Turn the PC on and watch the hard drive light flicker.
After a minute or two it should stop or at least slow right down.
Turn the monitor on and see if you can see the desktop. (in some cases you may only see the DELL screen before it cuts out again. If so, then just leave it on and use a good torch shining down from the top at an angle to the screen and see if you can see your desktop that way..it will be very feint)
If so, it will still cut out very quickly, but it is a fault in the inverter circuit on the power board in the monitor.
A trip to your local TV technician will have it back up and running quickly and should not cost that much to have repaired.
