Question about Dell 22" SP2208WFP Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor

Open Question

Power light on, no display on screen

The blue power light is steady on but screen is black. I have hooked it up with different cables to a different PC that I know is working, still a black screen. So not a cable problem, not the laptop's problem. Is it dead? None of the menu buttons bring up anything on the screen. Pretty old...thanks.

SOURCE: Monitor won't display.

I would suggest that the "Event" that caused the CB to trip has caused ya Monitor to fail.. Probably in the Power Supply, My "Pet" area... lol.. anyway Thats wat I would think. It may even have an internal "Fuse" that has "Blown"?

Solution to a blinking orange power light indicator.

Checking procedures.

1. Check the fuse on the inverter board labeled F1. If it is opened then your inverter board has a problem. That's why the fuse is opened.

2. Remove the white wide cable connecting the main board and inverter board. Next plug the D-sub cable and power adapter and test. If the 2 green light indicators are solid green then your problem is positively coming from your inverter board.

Solution in fixing the inverter board:

In my case, the fuse was opened. So I first resoldered all the legs of the 4 transformers. Eight legs each transformer. Resoldered also the capacitor at the back of the inverter board. Checked the 2 diodes labeled (D3 and D13). One of them was shorted. So replaced it using Radioshack 3A 400piv. It is quite bigger in value but I just want to make sure it can handle the load of current.

Tip in checking a diode, it should always open using a digital tester.

That's it. re-assemble then test it again.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Power on - blank (black) screen

Disconnect the monitor signal cable from PC and switch on your monitor. It should show some logo with Red, Green and Blue colors with a message similar to "No signal". If so, your monitor is working fine. Sometimes if the brightness and contrast is set to zero using controls present in the monitor, it will not show up anything. check wheather somebody set your monitor brightness and contrast to zero. If so incease them. As a last try connect to different PC and check before approaching a service center. I hope this will help you out. :)

How do I repair my 19in LCD monitor, it receives video signal, but goes black screen?


Connect the "bad" monitor to the VGA-out port on a notebook/laptop computer, to see if it works normally when connected. If not, then the monitor is "dead".
If it works fine, check the "screen-resolution" of the computer's video-card, to see if the values exceed the capability of the monitor.

Screen problem


I have the same problem. rca 26lb30rqd. The red light is on (steady), and when I hit the power button, the blue light comes on for a second, then goes black, w/ no display. Before this happened, the display was extremely bright with ghosting. The picture was un-viewable. Did you every figure out the problem?

Gateway FPD1750 monitor's keep go black screen, no picture at al


tgordon60, If you know how those NEW "CURLIE-Q" energy efficient CFL light bulbs produce WHITE LIGHT, then you will know what makes an LCD display panel produce all the pretty colors and the WHITE BACKGROUND of the FIXYA web page!!! Only difference is that your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" are thinner and straight, and hung on rear of LCD glass panel and have a DC to AC electronic ballast called an "INVERTER" circuit to produce 600 to 1000vac to light them up. Get to my FIXYA profile and read my responses to other BLACK screen lcd owners to learn about all your options for repair. Follow any of the links to other web pages you find there. Your monitor not any different than ACER, DELL, VIEWSONIC, BENQ, SONY, AOC!!!!! 12fixlouie aka louie12fix

The sreen is black, and the monitor light is orange


This usually indicates an input problem. There are number of things to check:

Make sure the screen is plugged into a working output on the video card - if you can, test the video with a different screen.

Try a different cable; Swap for the same type of cable, or, if available, use a different output method(Such as HDMI).

If using an adapter on the cable, try using a different adapter.

Test the cable on a different display, if possible.

Ultimately, if the video card, cable, and connector are all working, or the display is still not, its likely a bad input board within the display - if you're savvy and have some time to kill, replacement boards cost between 20-70 bucks on ebay.

Power light steady green but monitor goes dark after 4 secs of video


The video card in the computer could be going bad too or the driver for the video has corrupted. Try reloading the video drivers in the PC first.
