You got a clue by now and pushed that button 2 more times, right? And the Rapture happened and it went back to right? Yep. No problem. Keep that PDF manual for the monitor around for light reading, too.

It seems like the right button to push to me, too. Maybe if I had CCTV on the doorbell or backyard or something it would be; otherwise it is the one third from the left.

Hi. I have got the same problem, and it was very easy to solve. Monitor was LG. The problem was not in the system, it was in the monitor. I just clicked the buttons on the monitor, it was on the wrong setting that divides monitor in two colors, so if it happens to you, try checking your monitor settings, mine was set to "demonstration", half was lighter than the other one, just set it to usual or user. Keep in mind the settings are on the monitor itself, not in the windows (buttons on the monitor itself) Good luck.

I assume you have it connected to an external monitor output on the laptop. The laptop's operating system probably identified the monitor when it was first plugged in, but somehow pressing the button changed the monitor's identity as far as the laptop is concerned - maybe there is an incompatibility in the resolution setting. The laptop has apparently shut down the external video port.

Turn off the monitor, but leave it connected to the laptop. Restart the laptop and turn the monitor on when the laptop brings up its BIOS screen (begins the startup process). When the operating system gets started, it should recognize the monitor again.

What operating system are you using, and what kind of connection are you making with the laptop (DVI, VGA, HDMI)?

My screen is splitting in 2


Connect the monitor to another (desktop or laptop) computer, to see if the problem "follows" the monitor.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if your computer is sending the "wrong" video-output to your monitor.

There should be an adjustment on the monitor itself.

15in dell monitor model e151fpb

Solution: Replace cap. Radio Shack sells a 1000uF, 35V cap for $2. This will work.

Why did the cap go bad? The cap is too close to a heat sink and over heated.

What does this cap do? This cap sends a signal to an IC which keeps the monitor 'on' after the power switch is pushed. When the cap is weak, AC ripple voltage is applied to the IC and it sends a signal to shut the monitor off.

Opening the Monitor: These monitors are difficult to open.

The two plastic pieces snap together and must be pried apart with a flat screw driver.

After removing the stand, you need to insert a flat screw driver at the bottom of the screen where two slots are located. Then work the screw driver around until the two plastic pieces are separated.

Remove the cover plate and unscrew the push button circuit board.

Unplug the monitor cords from the driver board and remove the screen.

Unscrew the mounting screws from the power supply board and remove.

You will need to pinch the plastic support in the middle of the board to remove.

Cap Replacement:

Cap is located near a copper heat sink and the value will be on the side of the cap. It will be bulged up on the top. You will see burn marks on the board surrounding the cap. Unsolder the cap.

Install the new cap and solder. Make sure you connect + of the cap to + marked on the board.

Be careful not to solder across joints.

Keep leads long so you can bend the cap as far away from the heat sink as possible.

Reassemble monitor and turn on.

This should solve the problem.
