Question about Dell UltraSharp 1907FP 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Dell FP1905FP Stopped working

I have a Dell 1905fp connected (DVI) to an IBM ThinkPad T42 (in docking station). The connection has worked flawlessly for over two years. Starting last week the monitor would not sync with the T42 - at first the on button would blink (green) but no connection, then after a period of time, would connect. Now the button will still blick, but the connection is never made.

If I try to boot the T42 in the docking station with the monitor on, neither the LCD on the laptop or the monitor has any display .. I have to boot without the docking station, then place it back in the station once on.

Also, the self check on the monitor was working but does not seem to be working anymore.

Can this be fixed by swaping a board inside the monitor?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

    Thanks ... this one has an internal power supply. Do you know how to get access to the supply in the monitor? Thanks!

First try on another computer just to see if there is any other problem then the LCD. Also check power supply to the monitor. I believe this has one that's internal, but if external, swap with a similar specs one. If internal, check to see if any popped up capacitors. Video boards are most likely ok.

    If you remove the screws on the back, the cover should pop off. From there is will be a unit directly attached to where the plugin attaches. There you can check for any popped caps.

IBM ThinkPad T40, when connected to docking station the laptop will randomly stop working with USB connected items like mouse, keyboard, printer all connected to USB ports on docking station.


Try a power adapter with more amperage. When you connect a dock, the 3 amp adapter that comes with IBM laptops will not have enough power for lots of add-ons. You'll need the 4 amp adapter.

Dear rajeshraja42,
Try to run the recovery CD from IBM Docking station, and reconfigure your system by connecting your docking station while you run them.
Or try this:
Connect your docking station to your Laptop then turn the Computer On!
Start>My Computer--- Then right click--- Choose 'Properties'>On the dialog box, ----choose the 'Hardware' Tab> Choose the Device Manager box by click them>Now You are in the DEVICE Manager Box>>>
Run the Scan For Hardware Changes... Then if you find that your docking station appear with Yellow Question Mark Then, right click on it and choose 'Uninstall' from context menu and answer YES! then Run the SCAN for hardware changes for ONE last time, Your System should find your Docking station as part of your system now!

GoodLuck!

Thinkpad Dock station 2 won't charge docked laptop.


Most likely cause over on your part would be a bad connection from the dock to you. I am not an expert on laptop docks, but try to check that all the cables are nice and secure. Also, check that there is no stray objects in the connections. If all else fails, you may have a bad dock station.

USB ports in docking station stopped working suddenly


I was having the same problem - the USB ports seemed to have stopped working so I could not use the mouse, keyboard, or printer, even though the monitors and power could still operate through the docking station. Finally, I just unplugged the docking station for 30 seconds, plugged it back in, and everything resumed working. I was surprised it was that simple, but it's working for the moment.

No ethernet with docking station


It could be the connector on the bottom of your laptop that's creating the problem. Does any other ports work on the docking station when docked?
