Question about Dell E151FP 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Hi there, I have a dell flat screen thats about four years old. It has just gone completley dead. The light is going from orange to green when you turn the computer on and if you move the mouse after it has gone in to sleep mode. Is there a way of reseting it? Please help
Hi I have the same problem with 19 LCD monitors from Dell. This is how to check it. Power on both CPU and monitor. After the monitor goes blank, you check that you can see the image on the screen 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. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is easily replaced. 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.

Going from orange to green is what happens when the signal is getting to the monitor, (after you turn the computer on or wake it from sleep).
LOOK CLOSELY, at the screen, Can you see any image at all? even though it looks black? Assuming you can, you probably have a BACKLIGHT problem as a number of us are having. This website:
has more info on this. They say it is usually the INVERTER board which is the problem which can be replaced. (more rarely the bulb(s) themselves).
BE CAUTIOUS if you should undertake a repair yourself, as there are places on the circuit board that say HIGH VOLTAGE, and reportedly will hold VOLTAGE even after the monitor is off. I believe there are ways of draining this held voltage, but you have to look into that. I took the back off mine and just avoided touching that part, but I haven't replace the board yet.
Reportedly, DELL will not sell any parts to consumers, like the inverter board. But check it out and let me know if I am wrong.
Please post any solutions you should find.
