Question about Dell E151FP 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor blackout and screen discoloration

Hi,

I have a Dell E151FP 15 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor that is about five years old.  It has always worked perfectly for me until recently when it started to randomly go black.  The light turned off, then it turned on again and the screen was discolored - everything was kind of washed out in a rather fuzzy red.  I rebooted everything and check that it was plugged in properly, but the dicoloration remains and it still randomly goes black.  Any ideas of what this is or why it did this?  I know it is a bit old now, but the computer and all the rest of my desktop equipment, which I bought at the same time, still works perfectly.  Do you think the monitor needs to be replaced or can it be repaired?

Thanks so much!

Sounds like the backlight is failing. If it is still under warranty send it back and let the manufacturer fix it.

Discoloration of the images on the Dell Flat pannel screen


Have you tried a different cable? That would account for the discoloration. That particular model came with a 15-pin analog video connector that you should be able to purchase at any electronics, office supply or computer store. You may even be able to borrow one from a friend's monitor to test and see if that works for you.

Now, about the mouse redraw issue, you may want to remove the video card from your device manager and let it reinstall. That should allow Windows to redefine mouse (X,Y coordinates) characteristics.
