Question about Dell E197FP LCD Monitor
My dad bought me this new monitor about 4mths ago, and its been great, but recently its been shutting itself on and off. Happens mostly when i'm using a program it will go black and the power light goes from green to orange then back to green, but the screen is still black, sometimes it stops when i press a button and sometimes it doesnt help at all. Iv'e checked my power managment settings and they are off and not set to put anything to sleep. any help?
This is the way how to examine where the problem is. You have to check that you can see the image on screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons (Power on both cpu and monitor), there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. They are easily replaced. If you cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
