Question about Dell SE198WFP LCD Monitor
I have changed every cable and tried different LCD's so its not my Video card or computer...when the LCD goes off so does teh blue light....when i can get the display to work for a 4 or 5 seconds i can see so brighter pixels throughout the display.
Any help would be helpful thanks.
If you can solder you may be able to repair your power supply. We have some pictures and repair guides on our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm The pictures show what bad capacitors look like, you can take a look at your power board and see if there are any bad caps on it. If so if you replace the caps you should be back going. If you want to send us a few pictures of your boards in the monitor, taken as close and clear as possible I may be better able to spot the problem caps.

Tips for a great answer:
Ok, I have now had 2 different Dell SE198WFP monitors
with the same problem (shutting down after a couple of seconds) and I had to read numerous posts on numerous blogs
looking for a solution to this "problem" before I actually figured it out. Everything that I'd
read suggested bad capacitors on the inverter board (and I'm sure that this is an
issue, but it wasn't mine.) After
replacing all of the caps on the inverter I still had the same problem.
Long story short, I found (on both of my SE198WFP monitors) that
at least one of the four CCFL backlight tubes had a burnt wire on the end of
Now I'm not sure if this is a common problem with this
monitor or not, but it was in fact the problem with both of mine, and after fixing
these wires both monitors now work just fine
:-) It seems that all four CCFL's
have to pull the same amount of current or the inverter trips the overload and
just shuts itself down. I hope this
helps!! "And good hunting"
