Question about Dell E153FP 15" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Someone gave me a flat screen monitor and since owning for the past week, a squiggly line has appeared and seems to grow a little each day. It looks like a pencil drawing and it goes diagnolly across the screen looks like it is drawn from the inside. I would like to repair it, yet not sure if it's even worth it. Please let me know. Thanks. FDNetwork@optonline.net

Hello,

the line appearing is as a result of bad picture board inside the monitor. This picture board needs to be replaced for those lines to go off.

Also, since the monitor was given to you, I wouldn't know if there is an additional problem with the monitor apart from the pencil lines across the screen.

I would advice that you take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity,so that the monitor can be diagnosed. After diagnosing, the parts that needs to be replaced for the monitor to work fine will be revealed.

Now, the cost of replacement of this parts should now be compared with the price of buying another monitor. This will determine whether or not, the monitor is worth repairing.

Therefore, compare the price of repairing the monitor with the cost purchasing a new monitor. If the cost of repairs is almost the price of purchasing another monitor, then its not worth repairing. But if the cost of purchasing another monitor is far greater than the cost of repairs, then the monitor is worth repairing.

I hope you understand my message.

Good luck.

Re: Creeping black line


Hi mrtaz187 -
Well, the pixels can go bad on the LCD monitors and from what you are explaining, it certainly sounds like this is the case on your monitor. I wish that I had better news for you but the monitor will have to be replaced. Sorry. I know that Walmart has had these monitors on sale in the past and they have offered a 13 month warranty. If you could return it from where you bought it (under warranty), that would be the best solution... otherwise it will need to be replaced because usually the bad pixel problem grows worse over time.

Hope that helps,

Take care,
Michael

A thin horizontal line across the screen


I know I have seen thin lines in the past on older CRT monitors, these are usually wires which support the aperture grill. LCD is just a panel so this must be something different. What color is the line? It is probably an error in the scanning process.
