Hello

Under the the pedestal mount there are four screws. Once you've removed all the screws and the attached devices and cable (most importantly the power cable must be removed). Now you'll need a couple of flat diddle sticks (Radio Shack). Use these under the front bezel in between the the plastic front bezel and the metal rim of the internal screen. You'll actually be prying these two apart until the front plastic bezel snaps away from the rear plastic container. This won't happen if there are any screws left in it. Once you have all the plastic off, it's time to put on your anti static wrist strap and open up the metal containers.

My Dell Monitor model E153FPc will not turn on or, if on, will not turn off. We tried leaving it on, but sometimes the on/off button would just flash, but nothing came on the screen. I am trying to open...


See video here, it close to the same model as yours: http://www.lcdrepair.us/E172fpbvideo.html

Look for bad caps first:

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELLS monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My sreen is dark on my dell E153FPc when i cut it on i can see but it goes dark after like 2 seconds is it the contrast


Not hte setting problem, but more likely to be problem in the power supply /inverter circuits due to bad caps, shorted transistors, cold solder joints.

Why does my e153fpc go blank one second after turn on


Guest, Learn "flashlight test" first!! Point bright flashlight at screen (1 inch away) when screen goes black!!! Is Dell E153FP BLANK n BLACK? Or is it just BLACK? Can you still see very faint image of the icons and Win-desktop? If you read my fixya profile for a while you should then get back to me and tell me what you will do to restore unit to working order. There are lots of DIY video clips at YOUTUBE that will help you determine if you will do the repair or contract-out the work. DIY is still the cheapest way to go if you are handy with a oldering pencil and solder. Do your research first!!! All the cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp-back-lit lcd monitor techs here on fixya already know you have a good chance to repair it. Just do some reading and follow the links you find for all the info you need. 12fixlouie

Is there a way to open the monitor case to fix the backlight without using a hammer and chisel . . ? Dell Model #E153FPc


Yes the screens are held together by screws and clips. you need an electronics plastic opening tool to not damage them but they are repairable without having the damage them.

Dell E153FPc switches off (black Screen) after a few minutes. If you switch it off & back on again it will stay on for a few minutes, then go off again.


You could have an inverter board problem. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp which provides the back-lighting.

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.

Flickering switch light, blank screen


Hi, First of all it is not advisable to open up monitors without proper tools as they contain hazardous elements. Dell monitors however do have a 3 year SEPARATE warranty. Check on the back of the monitor and look for the monitor serial number. is should start with CN-xxxxx-,, or JP-XXXXX-. give that to a dell tech and they should be able to replace that.

Screen goes blank


Hi, Either that or the power supply. IF it is the inverter board, again very strong possibilities with the capacitors. This time it is taking some time for them to charge. Same thing with the capacitors of the power supply. On some instances, it could be a cold solder or a loose connector that eventually connects good when warmed up. Your best bet is to have the LCD opened and checked/diagnosed. Good luck and kind regards.
