Question about Dell UltraSharp 1907FP 19" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Dell monitor I have a Dell 1907fp monitor, and the power button seems to have jammed in a bit at an angle. After reading around a bit on various sites I think that the chip that the button is attached to may have cracked a bit and basically I want to get inside the casing of the monitor. Can anyone tell me how to open it up as I have undone the four screws behind where the stand attaches but this seems to do nothing. There is a padlock logo next to a small slot on the back of the monitor but I do not know what this does or how to use it. Any help greatly appreciated!!!

    The power button is stuck in and the monitor will not turn on. Have tried to pry the switch out using a pocket knife without success. Need to remove the bezel but not sure how hard this will be.

    Wow, I did NOT expect somebody to have the same exact problem with the same exact monitor. I'm about to take it apart - I hope this works. I was wondering, though, did your power button suddenly seem a bit 'loose' one day? That's what happened to mine, and next thing I know it just got stuck inside the casing at an awkward angle.

    Same problem but fortunately my monitor power button is stuck in the on position. I say stuck but actually I believe the power button is broken.

Tantong's description is correct -- press on side tabs and pry apart the face while working from the middle of the sides to the top. Once the sides are separated, remove the top, and remove the bottom last.

There is no screw on the front frame. This monitor has a tension fit case. So, face the screen up and look for "rectangular hole" on the side edge (usually at the bottom edge of the screen). This will be a challenge to open without breaking it. You'll need a flat screw driver and wedge it into that narrow rectangular hole. You can use any prybar if you don't have screw driver. It is not too deep. You may stab something important inside and pry it. Once it starts to spread, start sliding it along the seem and you should feel the tension tabs start "popping" open. Continue to work your way around until it's off.

DELL 1907FP MONITOR


There were no screws on the back of my monitor so that was not an option for me. I figured I didn't have much to lose, so I took a very thin and small screw driver and pried the on-off button right out of its socket, which does break it. To the left, inside the hole,you can see where a tab on the button pressed against a small circular inner button. I pressed that with the screwdriver and the monitor turned right on. I replaced the button for the sake of cosmetics and will never touch it again. If I leave the monitor for any extendd period of time I will simply unplug it.

I have a Dell monitor model 1704FPT,, seems like the power button has come loose inside.. Can I get inside to repair it .. Thank you


You can turn counter-clockwise the screwz at the back cover of your monitor to open it & check if the power button is loose or defective, even notice if some internal part/s are cold soldered / defective. However, if it's still under Warranty, I recommend to bring the unit to an authorized service center for a Free service check-up & replacement part/s. best regards

My dell 1905FP power button flashes green and will not turn off, the screen is black.


Hello,

This is a common indication of a failure in the power supply. There are parts called capacitors that are used in the filter section of the power supply, when they go out the power supply can't properly turn on so you get no picture and a flashing power light. Here is a picture of the power supply board with the problem filter capacitors circled in yellow and below the picture in a link to a repair guide with details dis-assemble and repair instruction along with parts list for the Dell 1905FP and 1907FP models.

Height adjust for Dell UltraSharp 1907FP 19" LCD Monitor


Is it stuck, or just not adjustable? Try setting it on a phonebook. I'm kidding. If it is an adjustable base, sometimes they need a little downward pressure before the button will depress and allow it to move upward.

Thanks,

No power to my Dell 1907fpc


Pry the frame from the front of panel and you should see the circuit board for the buttons.  Unscrew that and you should be able to see the board itself and turn the monitor on from there.  I placed a small plastic piece between the button and the board and it works.  Hope this helps.

Dell monitor back removal


This can go one of 2 ways..very easy or very hard.
Having said that here we go.
  • Get a towel and lay it on a flat surface.
  • Remove the 4 screws from the stand and remove it.
  • looking from under the monitor you should see 2 small notches between the front and rear covers.
  • Carefully insert a flat blade screwdriver (not too far) into the hole and lift upwards. It should pop. Do the same on both sides.
  • Carefully pop it all the way around (without using anything but light pulling pressure.)
Hope that helps =)
