After 1 year, the monitor DELL E228WFP started to turn pitch black for no reason after 30 minutes or one hour of use. Everything was still working but you could'nt see anything. I always had to close it with the monitor's power button and reopen it. Thanks,Anna.

Ainamat, Did you do the FLASHLIGHT TEST to evaluate the status of the "switch-mode-power-supply"??? Every owner of a lcd display with "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" backlighting should know how to perform AND interpret the results!!!! It's a very easy test to do! FYI Your monitor has a backlighting sysem very similar to the NEW curlie-Q CFL energy-saving screw-in light bulbs!! They have an ELECTRONIC BALLAST (converter) circuit (ac to ac) to light them. Monitors have a INVERTER circuit (dc to ac) ballast circuit that generates 600-1100vac to light your CCFL's. If the SMPS detects a FAULT with itself or a circuit that it is supplying power to, It will go into SHUTDOWN mode to try and save the unit from a catastrophic, nonrecoverable failure. e.g. worst case sparks,smoke,fire!! Anna, you should READ and follow the threads in my other responses if you can get to my FIXYA profile pages under 12fixlouie, aka louie12fix and read what I have already written about the BLACK SCREEN of DEATH and YOUR options. If after doing some surfing of the net, you determine that this response has steered you to a solution to your BSOD problem, please rate this response on fixya. Good luck in your quest. 12fixlouie

Dell E228WFP monitor cutting off, goes black


sysjrm, You need to visit YOUTUBE for video clips of "lcd monitor repair" to see if DIY project is what you can handle!!! After you "learn by seeing" some printed circuit "switch-mode-power-supply/inverter boards" having their "aluminum-can" electrolytic filter capacitors replaced and/or "thermally-intermittant" fractured solder-joints "resoldered" then you will be able to make decision on what to do about attempting a repair to your E228WFP! Note!!!! Make certain that your pc is not the cause of your BLACK SCREEN or BLACKnBLANK SCREEN problem/symptom by connecting a "known-good" monitor to your pc first!!! Please read the higher numbered(32 and up) pages in my fixya profile for more information on how to do the simple "flashlight test" for evaluating the state of shutdown that the switch-mode-supply may be in. Also read and follow the links you find in the profiles of "budmrtn" and "buddymc" that are very good ccfl back-lit lcd monitor technicians here on fixya. After you do your web research, remember to come back to this posting and do a comment and rating of this response if you feel that it has steered you in the right direction. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

Hello I have a monitor DELL E228WFP and it turns black after a while. I have it about 1 year, and it turns black for no reason. I wan't to know how to make the flash light test on my monitor.


Okay, there is what is known as a Diagnostic Partition in all Dell computers. When you turn on your computer you need to Tap F12 when you see your BIOS load (which is the first thing you see on your screen when you turn on your computer.) You will then see several options, if you did it correctly, and the one on the very bottom usually says something along the line of "Boot to Utility Partition" and there will be an option for a screen test. Run it.

Please tell me if you need any further assistance.
