Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Dell computer with a flat panel X2Gen monitor and off and on during use the screen will go black like it's gone into sleep mode except in order to get the screen back up on the monitor, I have to shut it off and back on. Sleep mode is not engaged. This has just started happening during the last couple days. I've checked all my connections just to make sure nothing was loose. Possible solutions short of buying a new monitor which I can't afford right now? Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service contact us for details.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.
