Re: Dell 1901FP monitor

It is probably either a CCFL back light issue inside the LCD or a set of capacitors on the inverter/power supply board.
Would you be willing to part with it ?

Dell monitor starts well goes on a green light shows then it blacks out and the light on the front turns to amber(yelow)

The lamp goes "orange" when no "signal" is detected.
Check that the "video" cable is tightly-connected to both
the computer and the monitor.
Try the monitor on a different computer.
Try a borrowed monitor on your computer.
Try a different video-card inside your computer.

May be the problem comes from the Cpu.
Try to see if the cable from the monitor is firmly connected to the cpu.
One thing more may be the vga card is having problem.
Try to test the screen with another Cpu. Or the cpu with another monitor.
The amber mode is normal as the screen is not receiving signal from the cpu.
At times the memory chip also report this problem (no display or sleep mode)
Do hear any beep sound or any other Errors??
OK try this

Screen is blak, has power

That either means it is not getting the signal from the PC or there is a problem in the monitor. You should try this monitor on another PC first, also check or try another VGA cable. Just need to narrow down the problem to either PC or the Monitor.

The monitor shows a black screen but the green

Yes, there is internal main AC fuse, which should be OK because you can see the indicator light, you need to open it up and check for caps with bulging tops first, post back what you see so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps:

1905FP Monitor Powers up, briefly shows logo, blacks out.

Look inside for bad caps with bulgng tops, worst case will be shorted out transistors in the backlight inverter circuits or bad lamps. Check to see if you do have he 12vdc for the inveter circuits. See example of failed monitors with bad caps here:

Screen Goes Blank

Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.
