Re: monitor keeps resetting

It would be helpful to determine if the problem is the monitor or the Video Card on the PC. If you have another PC or laptop, and could rule out or in which part is the problem, it would be easier to find the solution.

Could also be a loose connection any where from the Video Card to the Monitor. Check it out!

Let me know if this helps out!

The monitor flashes on when powered on, then blank black screen. Will do this all day if I keep powering off and on, but it will have no image for more than a second.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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 LG and other monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing DELLe152fp

That is the OSD (On Screen Display) system built-in to your computer monitor. Check that when you hit the ON/OFF button on your monitor, that you do *NOT* hit the 'OSD ON/OFF' button.

Most of the time, the OSD will disappear after 10 seconds of "non-use".

Monitor Goes black, or flickers on and off

The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

Monitor flashes image for split second then goes blank but green LED flashes as well

while the monitor is still powered on, but with the LED flashing, unplug the monitor from the PC. press the power button, and the monitor should go off, now plug the pc back into the monitor. Turn the monitor back on and it should work.

Occasionally this will not work for me, but if I repeat it it normally works

Hope this helps - my problem is intermitant so it may be different to what u guys have

Monitor displays fine but flases on and off every couple of seconds

It sounds like this one needs component-level troubleshooting, probably in the power supply section.

Green power light blinks every 3 seconds with the word Xerox on the screen, with just a black screen. Could this be a bad Switching Power supply cord?

open it up... whats the worst that could happen... see if the caps are fine... if they are bloated exchange them... if you need help doing so hit me up at abelino24(at)sbcglobal(.)net... I've repaired like three of these in the past few months.. its always the capacitors. they either get really hot and bloat or don't function if it gets too cold... so the solution if to get the right caps at 470uf / 25v and 220uf / 25v... hopes this helps...
