Dell E228WFP goes black every 5 minutes

Started a week ago, every 5 or 10 minutes, it goes black. Light stays green as if it were on. Tried the flashlight test and I can see the screen. Now I just need to know what I need to do.

    I can see what should be on the monitor when I hold a flashlight up to it. I read somewhere that there's a pretty common problem with capacitors going bad on whatever it is that lights up the screen. I'll check the cable to see if the problem is there.

Sounds like a faulty connection.
Have you tested on another computer?
If problem persist, video cable is bad (either connector, or the cable itself). replace video cable,will solve the problem.

There is circuit problem inside. For safety reasons power might get shut down! Unless the fault is rectified, this problem will continue. Do not attempt switching ON again & again. Get authorised service center assistance.

Dell E228WFP two months out of warranty -monitor on and off


if your purchase just the monitor on 2/28/200, normally dell gives 3 years warranty for the monitor If purchased Separately.

OK.. try doing this call Dell.. 18004563355.. JUST give them the serial number of the monitor ONLY they'll check it out then if your lucky they'll send you a replacement.

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.


After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.

Green backgroud instead of black


sounds like your monitor cable is either bad or has a bent or missing pin on the connector.
