Question about Dell P1130 21" CRT Monitor

2 Answers

Too Bright The front panel (OSD) brightness control is at it's lowest setting and yet the screen is still so bright it's blooming. Cato posted a solution for the Dell P1110 that called for changing a resistor on the CRT controller PCB. That solution worked for that monitor so could it possibly work for this model as well? Thanx dewberr

    Regarding March post about Dell P1130. I have the schematic. The voltage at G2 is too high. Which resistors will cut it down and darken the screen?

    Viziks,



    I have a IBM P275 and from the schematics it looks almost identical to the Dell P1130.....



    Anyway, for this fix I am looking at R941, would that be correct? any suggested values? Start with 18M and work my way down?

It could.Check the screen voltage G2,If its high more then 400v this fix could work.

    You have to check on the CRT PCB after removing the metal covers which maybe soldered.Normally the pin is labeled G2 and pcb will be cut around this pin to prevent a flashover.Regarding which resistor to change we need to find a schematic to be able to pinpoint which resistor value needs to be changed.

    Hope this helps!

    The schematic is available on www.eserviceinfo.com. Use keywords P1130 and Mfg Dell.

Adjust the screen voltage at flyback. Adjust to lower setting until you get the desired brightness.

I have a tube tv. the picture as lines and is blur that goes in and out.


If the lines are colored DIAGONAL lines, they are referred to as "retrace lines," which indicates either that the picture tube bias is set too high, or the brightness level is set too high.. If the blur occurs when the image is particularly bright or a particular color is bright, it is referred to as "blooming." This is caused by either a weak high voltage circuit or because the picture tube bias is set too high.

Is the picture set very bright? Try reducing the brightness control to a level where the retrace lines disappear, and reducing the contrast control below the level where the blooming occurs.

If the television is more than ten years old or has many hours of use, the picture tube may simply be deteriorating normally. By nature, they have a limited life span. Before you decide to throw the set out, if you are technically-inclined, try adjusting the bias and screen drive controls for the television as recommended by the set manufacturer (you didn't specify what make or model the set is), and you may get a few months or years of additional life out of the set.

Screen too bright, have just got monitor from e-bay and there are no instructions on use.


Check all the buttons near the ON/OFF button.

One of the buttons will activate the OSD (On Screen Display).

The OSD controls everything about the monitor, including BRIGHTNESS and CONTRAST. Use the other buttons to move between menu-items, and to "select" one of the sub-menus, and to raise/lower settings, and to "exit" from a sub-menu to the main-menu.

The best way is through the buttons in front pannel. It will bring an OSD (On screen Display). Adjust the brightness and contrast from there. ( But I guess you have tried it allready )

Then the other solution which i uses to brighten my display is Power Strip.
You can also lessen the brightness/sharpness/contrast.

Cannot adjust color


Have you turned the controls from one of the presets? Presets are Vivid, Movie, etc. Most sets have to be in Custom or Customize to adjust the controls, likely on-screen with one of contrast, brightness, color, or tint selected. If those are horizontal bars then up/down selects which and right/left select decrease/increase or red/green for tint. Start with 50% if no reset (0% for R/G) or start with the non-Vivid settings. Consult AVS forums for you model to get better settings. Rules of thumb: Brightness should be as dark as possible without losing gray scale at lowest part. Contrast should not be so high that whites bloom or make it hard to see. Color should not blow out any color nor be unnatural. Tint is best judged on flesh tones. -Ken

Tv too bright


This problem might be caused by a problem called blooming. is the picture fuzzy and does the picture look to be streched out. Since you do not have contrast and brightness control this would almost completly point to the HV section of the TV either the control and screen grids of the CRT are going bad or the HV power supply is about to go bad, I would suggest that if you have a background in electronics that you check the HV at the anode of the picture tube and make sure the voltage is from 20Kv to 40Kv using a high voltage probe. You will need a schematic to aid you in your troubleshooting

Dell P1130 Blue Channel Problems I've had this monitor for over 4 years now - and it's been going strong since 2002, according to the manufacture date. Over the last year it's health has declined, and the blue channel used to flicker and strobe and pop at me when I switched it on in the morning, but calmed down after a moment and was perfectly normal for the whole day. Recently I turned it on after a couple of days away, and it was yellow - the blue channel didn't even seem to turn on with the rest of the monitor. After trying a few things, including some careful blows from my open hand to the sides, I pulled the plugs out and set it face down on the carpet, and went to find a screwdriver. I cam back, looked at it, and thought - I'd better find out how to discharge the capacitors before I do this. So I set it upright and switched it back on, but this time the blue channel popped on and did it's flickering thing! Almost as though turning it face down fixed it. That state has lasted for a couple of days - and the blue channel has worked ok, but when I switched it on this morning, the blue channel woke up, but then didn't cough into life, so now it's a yellow screen again. I took the back off and vacuumed the dust out, looking for scorch marks and leaking capacitors, but I couldn't see any - my guess is a loose wire leading from the power supply to the electron gun is loose or something like that. I love this monitor a whole lot, and because of it's superior color depth, I haven't wanted to get an LCD until I really had to. What I would like is an explanation of how the blue channel is wired to the electron gun, so I can check for loose wiring, and possibly a leaking capacitor that I haven't noticed yet, as well as the location of the capacitors inside the monitor case. I've been very careful - I've read a few articles on the subject, and I avoid touching anything except the outsides of the case. I know not to mess with things I have little knowledge about. However what I'm looking for is just some information about the blue channel's wiring arrangements, so I can check for loose wiring, or leaking capacitors, or shorted circuit boards.
