    Thanks eagle. Loose solders on the inverter board eh? Sounds like a job for a professional. I am assuming you take off the cover and hunt about for the suspect solder join? What a pain! I have some 0.5 and an iron though, I am just a bit hesitant about fixing it myself.

Yes amigo. You are having loose solders on the inverter board.. You will need to find and solder it right.. Use 0.5 or 0.8mm lead to solder. 0.5 is more advisable though.

    Well thats upto you but if you wanna do it yourself make sure you turn off the power and disconnect the cord from power supply. As i always say "your life and limb is worth much more than this!"

    Sai.

It is most likely the cable that connects your computer to your monitor. I just had this same issue myself recently and it was my monitor that was going off and on. Try another VGA cable that runs from your computer tower to your monitor. See if that resolves your issue.

My monitor flickering when I touch or tight the monitors VGA cable then display will come what is the problem of the monitor


I think your cable is damaged.

I've you can pull your VGA cable (BLUE) out of your monitor, you can replace it by a new one.

I've not, you need to get it fixed.


Please rate my solution.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a dell dimension 3000, bought a new HP 2310E monitor with 3 ports. DVI, HDMI & display port. Told to buy a cable with VGA to connect to dell and DVI to connect to HP Monitor display port....


Hi sshorne9780,

I see that you are having a check input error on the Monitor/LCD that your are connecting to your Dell tower, please see steps below.

  • On your HP 2310E make sure that your HP is set to the input/source that you are using and make sure that you only use one type of video cable for the issue.
  • I see that you mentioned that you have a VGA cable and a DVI cable, you can only use one type of cable for a video connection.
  • VGA would be the Blue tipped cable connecting to the tower and going to the LCD monitor.
  • DVI this is a black cable connecting to a white port much bigger than a VGA port and is rectangular in shape unlike the VGA
  • moz-screenshot.pngmvincentc_34.jpg
  • and on your LCD monitor check the input type to see video from the tower.
  • everything seems to be OK you just need to change the input of your LCD monitor for the video to show up on the screen.
  • also if you are using HDMI for the video u will need to change the setting of your Audio and set HDMI as the Default to have Audio come out from the HDMI connection together with video, the HDMI viedo will automatically be detected as long as the LCD monitor's input is set to HDMI.
I hope that this will able to help resolve your concern.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

It won't start it is black


Dell systems have built in no post diagnostics, you can check them here:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4282412-find_no_post_diagnostic_information_dell

if the system is completing post, but not showing any display, then you have either a Video Card issue or a monitor issue. Things to check:
  1. Ensure the monitor has the proper input selected for the cable that is connected (VGA, DVI, DisplayPort etc)
  2. Reseat cable connections
  3. If system was recently moved, make sure cable connected to correct Video Card Connection (Some systems have 2, and if an expansion card is inserted, generally on-board video is disabled.)
  4. If still no video and system has both expansion and onboard video, remove the expansion card, try the on-board.
  5. If still no go, try a different monitor
  6. if all the above fails, replace video card

#1 Connect monitor to another system, make sure the issue is the Monitor, not the video card.
#2 Try a different VGA or DVI cable
If the issue is isolated to the monitor, it is cheaper to replace it than to repair it (Refurb 17" LCDs are $69 on Dell's Outlet

The power light keeps flashing orange when trying to switch my pc on i only get an orange flashing light no other life in it whatsoever........


It means to say that it is not getting enough power on the computer, check the power cable at the back of the tower and make sure the power cable is connected tightly. You can try taking it out and then putting it back in again to make sure it is connected firmly.

Monitor problem


You didn't specify the card you are running but here is how I would approach the issue.

#1 refurburished Monitors have at a minimum a 90 day warranty, so be prepared to call Dell Tech Support and troubleshoot if my information doesn't help, if the monitor is defective, then they will have to exchange it.

#2 The optimal Resolution is 1680 x 1050 60 hz, you need to ensure that setting (You didn't specify, so I mentioned it)

#3 Sometimes color issues are caused by cabling issues. Try both DVI and VGA connections, see if there is any difference between them (digital or analog, the picture should look the same) If one looks ok, the other doesn't. then it may be a bad cable.

#4 Does the issue occur on more than one system. If it does, then the monitor is bad. If you have individual pixels stuck on (Red, Green or Blue) and you have more than 6, that in itself is justification for replacement.

#5 If all the above doesn't work, contact Dell Tech support for an EXG

DVI input on monitor not working


Contacted viewsonic about this issue- they suggested- have both dvi and vga hooked up to same machine. start with poweroff on both. power on monitor, then power on computer. when you see display coming from the vga, power off pc, then disconnect vga cable, turn off power to monitor, disconnect power cord from monitor for 5 + seconds, reconnect power cord, power on monitor, then power on pc.
If this doesn't work to get the dvi working, (as happened to us) we returned our monitor for a replacement, since it was still under warranty.
