Question about Dell M992 19" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Power but no display

My M992 powers up but there is no display. It has been in a closet for about a month and was working fine before it's temporary retirement. Not even the Seft Test Feature Check. Any ideas on what the problem may be? Is this worth having someone else repair?

Thank you in advance for your help :-)

    There is absolutely no display. I cannot check any settings. I swapped monitors and my other one works fine.The manual indicates that while not connected to the computer, the self-test feature should be displayed.

    My other monitor is a dinky little 15" that I use as a backup so I would really like to get this 19" flat screen working. Again, I have power but there is absolutely no display or signal of any sort. I cannot check settings at all. The STFC (Self Test Feature Check) that should appear when the monitor is plugged only into an outlet doesn't even come on. Is this something that I can fix or is this particular monitor worth the investment of having someone else fix?

    Thanks again, in advance, for any help that is offered.

Does the screen show no signal, it could be from thedigital button setting on the monitor try to adjust the setting,
2.check the video card ,you can test it on another system,test the monitor on another systems thats working fine if it continues may be its frm the systems or the monitor tube is bad if your using the correct resolution

Check the cable going from the pc to the monitor and ensure the connections are secure. You also may want to try moving the cable away from any other power cords if possible.

If this does not help then most likely it is time for a new one.

If it's getting no signal, make sure the monitor is set for the correct input. This would be either analog (if your cord has blue ends) or digital (if the connectors are white). Depending on wt yhat your monitor is, a button on the monitor will help you set that. If it's set for the correct input signal, then switch out a different cable to see if perchance you have a bad cable out of the box. If there is another PC or laptop setting around, plug your monitor into that to make sure it's good and maybe even plug THAT monitor into yours to make sure there is nothing wrong with your video card. Let me know what transpires. If this takes care of things, please help me out by rating it accordingly.

Out of frequency


Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Severe gradient issues / problems with darker grays


So your sure when you go into the monitor settings, and color, it is set to like 9300k or something? It probably isn't the monitor, because the video games you said display just fine.
