Followed the directions of redlegs1, posted 12/26/2007. It didn't work the first time, but sure did on the second attempt. Thanks redlegs1, you're no apprentice my friend!

Hold down the function key on your keyboard (lower left hand side of your keyboard between the control key and the windows key) and the F8 key simultaneously. This cycles through all monitor set up modes.

The burners may have nothing at all to do with this. Try the monitor on another computer (a laptop will do) if you have one. If the problem perists with the monitor, then the moniitor has failed. If the monitor works on another computer, or you do not have another to try, then start the computer and tap the F-8 key to boot to safe mode. If that gets you a display, then fix the display settings, also check the device manager for any signs of hardware trouble, and make any corrections that may be needed, and reboot. If safe mode does not get you a display, try disconnecting the new hardware. If still no joy, I'd say it's the monitor.

stlmeuzyk, Internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"ccfl-inverter-supply" will probably need to be refurbished (repaired). Use Dell warranty first if valid option! Try monitor on different pc or verify your pc is working properly with old, but known-good monitor. If your E228WFP unit is still not working then you or qualified electronics technician will need to tear-down monitor to evaluate and repair the ac to dc power supply printed circuit board. Before you do anything read my fixya profile to learn flashlight test that every ccfl back-lit lcd monitor owner should know how to do and interpret the results of test. The basic design and operation of your E228WFP isn't any different than any other brand!!! Read the older solutions in my profile and follow the links you find there. Then do additional comment if need more info. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

Hmmm...Stuck in power save. I guess when you push the power button, the monitor says power save, then blanks to power save, no matter if the Computer is on or not.
This means the monitor does not see any signal from the computer. I would suspect the computer first. Try a different monitor (borrow one).
If the size of the monitor picture is too high and the monitor is an older LCD, you may have set the image size too high (1280x1024 will not work with this monitor and it will do this very thing).
A broken or damaged connector cable to the monitor can also cause this. Was the monitor unplugged from the computer just before this problem?
