Question about Dell 1503FP 15" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Dell LCD - Power problem

I have a Dell 21" LCD Model#: 1800FP. I bought it in 2002. This morning, I was using my computer when all of the sudden the power went out on the monitor. I verified that all the cords were functioning and connected. The monitor will not turn back on - no green LED light or noise or anything. I am by no means a monitor expert (as you can probably tell), but does anyone have any advice they can give in regard to what to check - if anything? Is there something simple I can look into? I have read on this sight that power supplies are one of the few things that can be corrected on LCD monitors, but a friend of mine told me that I'm probably out of luck and will be better off pitching it in the garbage can and buying a new one. I hope he is wrong. The thing isn't that old! Thanks for any replies... I have same problem. My although my A/C adapter has a green light. My monitor shows no sign. Is there a simple fix.

To my knowledge, there is no easy fix. If the LCD is not powering on and your AC adapter indicates there is power, then it is in the circuitry of the LCD assy and your best bet is a TV repairman.

Odds are, that you can buy a replacement cheaper that the cost to repair that one (1800FP is an 18" LCD by the way) You can buy a 19" Wide aspect Dell LCD at Walmart for $199

My Dell 1800FP monitor went black


Confirm your cables did not work themselves loose. Try using a different power cable to confirm that it was not the cable. Finally try a lamp in the socket you are using for the monitor power cable, if you are not using a power bar but even then just to rule that out. If the only thing left is that your monitor is dead, you will need to recycle that one and purchase yourself another one. Sorry

Dell 1800FP monitor. Will not power up at all. Checked power cord on another machine, works fine. Monitor is from 2002, but was working perfect till yesterday. Is this worth fixing?


Take it apart and check the fuse. Sometimes is just a simple component damaged.
Have it checked in a specialist electronics house if you prefer.

Dell LCD monitor suddenly loses power


Hello,

Five years is a long time for an LCD panel. You definetly got your money's worth.

But, if your trouble shooing has led you to this conclusion I can also only conclude that the power driver inside your panel just gave up the ghost.

However, try giving Dell a call, for what's thats worth and see what they have to say.

You might also want to ask this expert "Robotek" what he may think as he is a board troubleshooter and could give you an answer if one is there.

Type this or copy and paste into your browser's address bar:

Its probably the inverter that lights up the screen that went bad.I have replaced inverter before with much sucess. If you feel comfortable opening the unit up I found one on ebay. Here is the link.
