Question about Dell E152FP 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

My screen keeps going blank yet i can almost make out the images.

When I turn on my computer and screen, the screen looks as though it shut off, but you can make out the desktop images if you look closely. I have to keep turning the monitor off and on every time it does this (which is about 15 times) before it will stay on...I have checked all connections. What is making my monitor turn off by itself so much? How can I fix this?

Black screen when turned onno display


There are several reasons that your Toshiba laptop screen may not come on, even if the laptop appears to be running, and several options you may try to get your screen back up and running without an expensive service call.


Common causes for a blank screen include a backlight that is turned off, a display toggled to an external monitor and improper shutdown errors.


To avoid blank screen errors after your current error is fixed, make sure to follow all instructions in your user's guide to care for your Toshiba computer.


Shine a flashlight directly at your screen and look for an image.

If you see one, this means the backlight on your laptop is off but the screen is still working. This backlight normally turns off only when your screen is closed.


Look for a small metal or plastic pin near one of the screen hinges.

The screen pushes this pin in when it is closed, so if the pin is stuck in the screen closed position, the backlight will remain off.


Tap the pin several times to release it.

You may need to use a small object, such as a pencil tip or straightened paper clip, to reach it on some models.


Monitor Toggle


Press and hold down the "Fn" key if you do not see an image when you use the flashlight.


Tap the "F5" key several times while the "Fn" key is pressed.

This will cycle your screen through the various options that toggle the display to an external monitor.


Attach an external monitor, restart the computer and try this method again if no image appears on the laptop screen.


Click "Start," "Control panel," "Hardware and sound," then "Device manager "using the external monitor if you get an image there but cannot toggle the image back to your LCD.


Select the "Monitor" option to expand your selection and select your LCD monitor from the device list.


Click the "Driver" tab and select "Update" to update the driver, as this error is likely caused by a software driver error.


Force Restart


Press and hold the power button until the computer shuts down completely.


Check the indicator lights at the edge of your laptop to see if the computer is truly off or if it has simply gone into hibernation mode.


If it is off, all lights will be off except the battery-related lights if you have a charger plugged in. In hibernation mode, the power light will blink slowly.


Press the power button to restart the computer again after leaving it off for 15 to 20 seconds. This may fix the problem.


If the blank screen returns or you get a flash of images and then a blank screen, move on to the next step.


Force Power Down


Unplug your laptop from the power source.


Remove the battery by pressing outward on the battery latch and pulling the battery unit completely out of the computer.


Press the power button several times to completely discharge the computer.


Replace the battery and plug the computer back in after about 30 seconds.


Press the power button to turn on the computer.

If you get an error screen upon startup, choose to restart Windows normally.

This error is caused by improper shutdown procedures.


Hope this helps

I have a problem about my laptop if i turn it on my screen are still blank but my laptop is still working.. can i ask if what is the problem about my laptop. pls help me... tnx!


Although your Toshiba portable computer appears to be on and running, there is no image on the built-in LCD display screen Look closely at the LCD display screen. If you can see a faint image on the screen, the display screen's fluorescent backlight may be turned off. Shining a flashlight directly at the screen will make it much easier to see whether or not there is a screen image actually present, though not lit up. On most Toshiba portable computers, there is a small plastic or metal pin near one of the LCD display lid hinges. When the display lid is shut (closed), this pin is pressed against an internal switch which turns off the backlight, saving battery power. You may be able to turn the backlight on again by tapping this pin repeatedly. The normal screen image will then suddenly appear, or re-appear.If there appears to be no display image at all, the problem is probably not related to the backlight. In this case, press and hold the Fn key and then press the F5 key several times, pausing several seconds between each keypress. This will cycle through several display output modes: Internal, External, Simultaneous, and possibly one or two more.If no image appears on the LCD display after cycling through the Fn-F5 sequence, try doing so with an external CRT monitor attached, if possible. If you still see no image, on either screen, try restarting the computer with the CRT monitor connected.If you see a screen image that looks normal when the computer is first powered on, or when you try to enter the BIOS Setup during the power-on sequence, it's an indication of a software problem (a driver or an application that's launched while the computer is loading Windows, possibly). Try downloading the display drivers for the computer from the Toshiba Support website, and then re-installing them.If the LCD screen or an external CRT monitor is blank only while the computer is first powered-on, but then works fine, it's probably not an indication of a problem. Some models display no text or images during the startup process. Additionally, installing some Windows Updates may delay the appearance of the familiar Windows desktop.If there are blank margins bordering the image on the LCD screen, launch the Windows Control Panel, then double-click the Display icon. Click the Settings tab, and then adjust the Screen Resolution setting until image fills the entire LCD screen, which will cause the margins to disappear.If the font size on an external CRT monitor seems too small for comfortable viewing, try clicking the Advanced button on the Settings page, and then adjust the DPI (dots per inch) value. Try 120DPI and 135DIP, to begin with. Avoid changing the DPI to much greater values, in order to avoid settings that will be difficult to change.
  1. Hold down the power button for approximately 10 seconds until the computer turns off.

  2. Verify that neither one of these keys are stuck in the down position:

    the Tab key (arrows pointing left and right)

    the tilde key ( ~ and ` characters)

  3. Turn the computer on.

  4. If either of the keys above appears to be stuck in the down position, and if the issue is not corrected by pressing these keys repeatedly, then service is required.

Benq fp581 screen goes blank after about half a second evertime i turn on my computer.


Even thought the monitor looks blank check to see if you can see a faint image (shining a flashlight at the monitor sometimes helps). If you can see an image it could mean that the inverter board has gone bad.

I have also heard of an overheated computer causing a similar problem.

Asus Monitor boes blank and comes back after power recycle


1. You can see images on the screen for a few minutes. That means there is nothing wrong with your computer.

2. When your screen goes blank, if you disconnect and then reconnect the monitor, it shows fine again for a few minutes before going blank (or dim) again. That means the problem is not with you video card.

3. It always shows the image after reconnection for exactly a few minutes before going blank again. yes? this means that there is nothing wrong with your cable.

Conclusion: Sorry, but you do not have many options. I bleieve that the problem is with your monitor that's going bad. Its far cheaper to get it replaced than to repair it.

Hp flat panel monitor comes on shows logon and then blank screen


Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on?
If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps.
If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

Starlogic 20 inch widescreen monitor screen keeps going black


This is probably a back light problem. Take a bright flashlight and while the monitor is on, point it at the LCD and try different angles, etc. If you can see an image, it is the back light, probably the back light voltage converter unit in the lcd. It could also be the back light bulbs.

If you don't see an image with the flash light, then it could be the main logic board.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After going blank, you check that you can see the image on the screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
