Why is my Dell Monitor Blank


If you have another computer, try and see if you can hook it up to that and test it. If it still doesn't work it may be dead.

My dell latitude d800 dosnt start. no cursor no splash screen ..only lightning some buttons..


Hi,

If you see power lights but nothing appears on the screen, it could be a "POST" (Power-on Self Test) problem or simply LCD problem.

Here are some steps that you can try. One of these may work on your case.

1. Remove the battery and the ac adapter then press the power button for at least 20 seconds to drain electric charges left on the system. (You may need to repeat this step to get it work.)

2. If above step doesn't work, try to plug in an external monitor and see if you get display from the external monitor.

3. If you get display from the external monitor, I'm sure your having problem with the LCD components. In this case, check and replace faulty LCD backlight, LCD cable or LCD inverter. The LCD inverter is often a culprit.

4. Try to reinsert the memory module/s (RAM) of the unit, try using one RAM at a time to see if it works. A faulty RAM will cause the laptop not to POST.

5. If reinserting the RAM doesn't help, most likely your motherboard needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Dell E171FP - goes blank after a second or two LCD monitor powers up for a second or two and then goes blank but the power light remains on. Display is fine for the few seconds it remains on. ...


You need to look for bad solder joints, bad caps, shorted transistors, etc,
See example here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/DELL/

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Powersave


If it's going into powersave mode, it usually means it's not getting a signal from the video card. Try plugging this monitor into another machine or laptop and you should be able to tell if that's the issue.
