Re: Dell P1110

Using the buttons on your monitor, see if there is a "burn in mode" or "self test mode", and turn it off via the monitors other buttons. (not the power switch)

Re: Dell P1110

Hi, The part where you see some color bars and blinking green led is what we call MONITOR SELF TEST. A diagnostic pattern consisting of four colors (red, green, blue and white) appears, and the LED flashes slowly. this happens when signal cable from the monitor is disconnected from the tower and leaving the power chord for the monitor plugged in. If the monitor works properly on a different computer. then its a problem with the computer's video card sending out signal. im 85% sure that its a problem with your video card.

I believe that you must reset the colors of the screen by the buttons on it or try to set colors by the software that the product came with it if any. There should be a setting to configure the 4 basic colours like red green black etc. Try to adjust green. If nothing helpes go the monitor back to test it by the store you bought it if there is warranty. Hope that helped!

Dell E152FPc Monitor powers up, and screen goes blank in 5-10 sec

ok every one there is a fix the are 4 transistor 2sc5707 and 2 transistorfu9024n and i cap 16v1000uf
if you replace these your problem will be fix for a while but to it better then dell replace the 2sc57o07 with radio shack tip3055 they are 15 amp trans instead of the low 8 amp dell uses they fail because the amps at the test for the transistor is more than 8amps all the correct parts are sold in a kit on ebay look up the 2sc5707 but i recommend upgrading to the tip3055 transistors they are a bigger transistor but you can lay them down and they work great. the capicator can be found at radio 35v1000uf is a good replacment make you monitor better because the new parts are stronger then the originals so no more failures after.
