Question about Dell E153FP 15" LCD Monitor
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?
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.
