Question about Dell SE198WFP LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Monitor Screen goes black every few seconds!

I have a dell se198 wide screen monitor. Yesterday when I was watching a movie on my PC, my screen went blank but the power light on the monitor remained blue, and it turns amber in power saving mode. So I went to my monitor and switched it off and on again it came up for a couple of seconds then it again went black. I have just put a lot of money in my graphic card, new cabinet motherboard and processor, I am typing all this on a black screen, is there any way I can fix this because for those few seconds the screen is absolutely perfect. Please Help.!

Check the capacitors on your monitors circuit board. If they have opened up at the top, they are fried. Buy new ones, make sure nothing has leaked from the old ones, and replace them.

    If the monitor displays again after shutting it off, it's NO THE OS!!!! And to say, reformat the hard drive is ridiculous.

I have a Dell SE198WFP Flat Panel Monitor, screen goes black?


The LCd panel may be damaged and will cause this problem.

Another thing is overheating of the GPU.

The LCD signal receiver can be goign on you.

The is also the possibility of a faulty inverter.

Only thing to do is service or replace. Test the unit on another computer, if you don't get the issue there then you know its a problem with the PC.

Dell 1704 monitor goes to black screen after one


Hi my name is Rain.
Ok so that im clear on the problem. your monitor will come on but in a matter of seconds it goes to a black screen?
If this is the problem. The answers you seek will most likely
be in your video card.
Try this test:
  • Unplug monitor from the computer.
  • Turn on monitor .
  • Look for monitor self test screen.
If you see the monitors self test screen then your problem indeed is
the video card . You will need to replace the video card inside of the computer.

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.

Image appears for 2-3 seconds then screen goes black


The following steps are how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen went black, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be 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. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,
Tan
