woliphint, Did you try Dell to see if they can do a swapout? You send them your's +$40-$90 and they send you a refurbished same model with new CCF tubes+power supply/inverter? A lot of LCD/FPD displays have been subject to having their SMPS's fail due to poor quality electrolytic filter capacitors that can't endure the thermal stress inside the display. Nearly all brands are affected, not just Dell. See what you get when you search web for 'swollen caps' or 'bad caps in lcd's' or 'lcd repairs' or 'monitor re-capping' or similar type of search. You should always state age or approximate usage hours of the monitor when posting to fixya. We don't know when a 2405FPW was produced and sold. As long as you haven't cracked, shattered, or abused the LCD panel you should be able to get it swapped and or repaired. I'm louie12fix on fixya or firstname.lastname@example.org
Bye for now.

Hi, I don't think the problem is with your monitor. Your monitor sounds like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The monitor is supposed to turn off if there's no cable attached, which means there's no signal input. When the screen goes black, does the power light stay on and turn orange? or does it go off as well? I would recommend that you lower your screen resolution to 1280x1024 or lower in the Display Properties window, then remove your primary monitor, and connect the monitor to your desktop computer. You should see it light up when connected. The monitor auto-senses when there's a computer attached to the cable and when there's a signal. If it doesn't see a signal, it goes black to save power.

I would check the capacitors on the power supply board first. This is the most common problem with LCD monitor after a year or two of service. Open the back and look for bulging capacitors, replace any that you find and you should be back going again. Check our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/capacitors.htm for pictures and information about this common problem. If you need to get parts or have over questions let us know at email@example.com.
I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
