    mine turns on, then goes yellow and says power save on. took apart and none of the capacitors are bulging. and if none are bulging, which one should i just try to replace and see if helps? there are many 1000uf 16v capacitors on this thing.

    Yes Use a flashlight to turn your brightness down to 0 then you can restart it and dont put it about 70 ish or what ever it take to turn it black again !

If you open the monitor up, on the inverter board is a 1000uF 16v capacitor that goes bad. If you replace that it should fix the problem. Look at the top of all the capacitors and you should see one that's popped up on the top, that would be the bad one. Some soldering is required. Make sure you put the negative white stripe on the white side of the silk screen on the board! Its a simple fix just sounds difficult.

    Same problem with my monitor. No bulging caps. But, using an ESR meter, C606 - 25v 100uF and C708 - 10v 1000uF were 'out of spec'. Replaced both of them and monitor came back to life.

I have a Dell 1905FP monitor and the screen went black and the Self Test box is floating around. Rebooting does not help. Please help. Rich

Try deconnect and reconnect the screen to the computer. You can also try to use a different cable or port on your computer to connect it. Also, in the "video preference" of your computer, be sure you activate this monitor.

My home dell computer monitor has went black with a box on it. * The floating dialog box appeared on screen (against a black background) * The dialog box float around the screen without any visual...

The dialog box you are seeing means that the monitor is not receiving a signal from the computer.

check your cable going from the monitor to the computer. if the cable seems ok, hold the power button on your towerr until it turns off, then wait 5 seconds and push the computer power button again.

Monitor won't come back from "sleep" setting.

Yes it can be, try it on other PC first to narrow down the problem.

My monitor goes blank after a while,power light still on,why is this & what can I do?

Check connection cable with videocard on your PC, unplug it and carefully plug it in again. (Turn off your monitor during this operation). If monitor goes black after loading OS (like Windows), then your screen resolution higher then monitor can support. Load computer in Safe Mode and lower screen resolution.
