Question about Dell UltraSharp 1800FP 18.1" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
My Dell FP1800 LCD monitor was working fine. I was using my pc one time and the monitor suddenly went blank. The green power on light disappeared.
In trouble shooting, I checked the power cable, fuses and connection. I even used other working power cables. My graphics card is definitely work with other monitors. My monitor is about 5-years old. What happened to my beloved LCD and is there any chance of making use of it again?
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.
