Question about Dell E153FP 15" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor blinks when trying to reboot

If the monitor has been sitting idle for 20-30 minutes, it will start blinking if you try to move the mouse and use the computer. The current solution that has been used is tapping the monitor on it's side until it "recovers" and stops blinking(it is not my monitor). This sometimes takes quite a few taps, but ones it comes back on, it works like new. There are no noises or signs other than this that the monitor is malfunctioning.


Will I be able to fix this problem or is it best to just by a new monitor?

Re: monitor blinks when trying to reboot

A common fault with this monitor is both bad capacitors and also dry joints, both will cause your problem.
Both faults are easy to correct if you have basic electronic knowledge, but if not, would be best left in the hands of your local technician.
Voltages inside of these monitors can kill and for the cost of the repair it's hardly worth risking your life.
If you choose to see a tech, then please just advise him of what I have said. It should give him the impression you know what you are talking about and stop him ripping you off.

Sounds as though you have a backlight issue. How old is the monitor?
The keyhole with the lock sign is for a security lock to lock the monitor to a desk so it cannot be stolen.

My hp vs19d power button blinks on and off slowly. what does it mean? if i let the computer sit for say 3 hours the monitor will stay blank. even after moving the mouse to wake things up

the monitor is in sleep mode ... have you tried hitting the keyboard Space bar?

if you disconnect the video cable from the pc does it display ( video disconnected) ? if it does it then is probably the sleep issue

Monitor looks as if there is no CPU

If the power supply is coming to CPU before activation of CPU then it must be receiving current from UPS. Don't try unplugging, You may get shock. Thank you, Sir.

Sceptre LCD monitor blank screen, blinking power light

Something has failed or is failing in the monitor. It may be serviceable, but may not be cost effective to do so unless something has just come loose. I'm assuming you have no problems with the new monitor. Your time line is a little confusing.
