Black screen on computer monitor

Dell E151FP6 monitor. I managed to reduce the contrast to a totally black screen with the buttons on the front/bottom of the screen. The only button I touched to accomplish that was the contrast button. Now I can't see anything. Except I can touch that contrast button and a bar lights up. It is set at totally minimum contrast. I hit every key and combination of buttons and keys I can imagine might work and got no changes whatsoever. I turned the computer off and on again. I disconnected the monitor and turned it off and back on. I got the test screen which looked OK. I reconnected it to the computer, but no change. I can still pull up the contrast bar but that's it. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Here is the link for the E151FPb monitor manual.
Since you email your question you have access to get this manual and print it. The manual shows the Auto set button, the contrast control button and a monitor reset feature.

Unfortunately you have to do each of these blind. Follow the instruction given, push buttons smartly, wait a few seconds for any action to take place, then follow the next instruction.

Good luck.

How to change the 'Contrast' and 'Brightness' on the monitor screen


Bootup your computer and display your Windows Desktop. Make sure yourmonitor stays on for at least half an hour before you begin, so that itis properly warmed up.


Seta pure black image on the monitor so you can adjust the brightness. Toget a pure black image, do the following: Choose Start, then ControlPanel, then Display. This will open the Display Properties dialog box.Click the down arrow next to the representation of the desktop color inthe Color field. Choose black from the color palette, then click OK.


Maximizethe Brightness control on your monitor, then slowly reduce it until theblack of the image perfectly matches the black at the edge of thephysical screen. This puts the brightness at the proper setting.


Open a screen with a plain white background soyou can adjust the contrast. One of the best ways to do this is to open aword-processing document without any text in it. Gradually reduce the contrastsetting of your monitor until the white area of the screen begins to lookslightly gray or off-white. Then gradually increase the contrast until thewhite area on your monitor is pure white. This will give you the proper whitebalance. Now you've got your monitor ready for peak performance.

Hope this may help you solve your problem.

My Dell LCD flat screen sometimes has black horizontal lines running across the bottom of the screen. The mouse pointer will not operate in those areas. Is this a monitor problem or a computer problem?...


To me it seems tobe a resoltion problem. Right click on the desktop and select properties->Settings. In the left mid you will find resolution. Reduce it one notch and select OK. If that does not solve the problem then Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager. Here select Display Adapter and remove it. Then from Actions select Scan for new HW. Allow Windows to detect the adapter and load its driver again. Reboot after clicking OK. If that too does not solve the problem then from Device manager above select Monitor and remove and rescan and select and reboot. That should sovle all your display problems.

Sounds like the computer is shutting it down and the monitor is fine. Check for viruses then check your settings in device manager for the screen saver and power down (screen off) options.

E207WFPc Dell Monitor goes black after seconds of poweron.


Hi,
The problem you have mentioned may not be due to contrast setting but the LCD itself . Power on the mointor and disconnect the signal cable from the back. if you see a self test box running on the LCD , the LCD is oK . If you donnot see the self test box the LCD is back. Dell doesnot service LCDs and you may need to get in touch with the local repair shop.

Monitor dims on a black background hanns G 28


Go into monitor settings and turn "off" X-Contrast. X-Contrast will auto change contrast when backgrounds darkens. However, adjust manually the Brightness and Contrast settings to compensate.
