Question about Dell E193FP 19" LCD Monitor
I ran across another thread on this website describing a problem similar to mine and I was hoping you might be able to help me.
Here is the link: http://www.fixya.com/support/t123725-monitor_goes_blank_less_second_after
Following the suggestions, I took the monitor apart and was fully prepared to replace transistors, capacitors or whatever but I can't tell which ones to replace. There's nothing that looks "obvious." I took a few pictures and was wondering if someone might notice something that jumps out.
Incidentally, my monitor is about 4 years old (one year PAST the warranty...GRRRR). I did try hooking the monitor up to another computer and it does the same thing (goes out after about 2 seconds). I tried the flashlight test but couldn't see anything.
Honestly, I 'm getting ready to throw the darn thing out the window and go to Wal-Mart to buy another one as someone else suggested.
I have a similar problem, except if you look very closely, from an upwards angle, it isn't off, but on the darkest contrast setting. The Dell monitor that I am using has 4 buttons in the bottom right corner. The first is silver, the second is silver with a - on it, the third has a +, the fourth is larger than the rest and is the power button. If you press the first button, the menu will pop up. Then press the third button (the +) to go down to 'factory settings'. after that, press the blank menu button again, then the + to go down to 'all settings,' followed by the menu button again to confirm. To recap, press the first, third, first, third, first and it should fix your settings. This may only happen temporarily, and it may go black again. If it works at all, then it is the contrast getting out of whack and not the monitor shutting off at all.

I have somewhat the same problem and this is how I deal with it although it is only a tempory solution. First off let me explain my problem.
Problem: Sometimes Randomly when I Turn on my Tower & my Monitor it will start up just fine and show me the Sony Vaio Logo and then the Window's XP Logo but when it goes from the Window's XP Logo to the Desktop the Monitor goes from Green to Amber & shuts down. The power on the Tower is still on and I know it has started up because I hear the familar Windows Start Up sound. Restarting the computer with a Hard Shut Down doesn't work & it does this on more than one computer.
My solution although Temporary works and may have to be done again when the problem rears it's head again but this is what I do.
Solution:When you first turn on your Tower and it goes thru the startup process keep hitting F8 until a menu pops up and has a bunch of options. One of those Options will be to "Start your Computer in Safe Mode" Choose this option and it will restart your computer and you should be able to reach your Desktop. At this point at least in my computer it then askes if I would like to continue in Safe mode or go to Restore Mode & restore my computer to another date. I choose Yes & usually restore it to the day before and once it restores itself everything works for quite a while before it happens again.
So Having Restore points can be very important in this situation so make sure you computer if it has a System Restore Option makes system restore points at least once or twice a week because you never know when you will need it and it will save your **** rather than having to fully re-install the OS and lose on the info on your HD.
Goodluck & I hopes this hopes those affected. Maybe I will finally figure out the problem have a permanant fix one day.

Ok I got the same problem. You may have to recheck shining flashlight again, not directly but find the best angle to the monitor and take a look very closly. 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 in the monitor. Some of them were broken. 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. Another way to check this is that the heat component after you input the power and check the temperature. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.

Wolf pack the problem you are describing is software. Uninstall your video card and reinstall it, you may want to do some virus scans too.
The original problem is probably hardware if you are taking it apart, cant help there, sorry :(
