Question about Dell UltraSharp 1905FP 19" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Power button My 3 year old 1905FP's power button no longer works. The button just seems to be dead. I've tried rotating it, and it is in a vertical position. I can feel it clicking in and out, but this has been a gradual problem, and now I can't get it to power on at all. The screen, at least the last time the monitor turned on, is excellent. No fading, no flickering (one pixel out), but the color is wonderful, text sharp, so this isn't a back-lighting problem. I've spoken to two repair shops locally who just said "drop kick it, it's too hard to fix." I have a hard time accepting this solution. Any ideas or suggestions would be welcome. thanks.

    The power button on my Dell monitor is permanently stuck in the "off" position. Maybe the spring has failed/come dis-lodged?

    My problem is exactly the same as 'grasses' - power switch has gone from erratic to inoperable over past weeks. Has been made to work by moving button sideways in its slot. Can't find exploded diagram to assess the possibility of replacing the faulty part. Address please for diagram and availablity of part - presumably with ~ 3 year lifespan! Iain

When I finally got the power switch to turn on, I just left it on.

My Dell 1905fp monitor now powers up and shuts down with my computer. I unplug the power chord when my laptop computer is disconnected.

Remove the button arm, and drill a hole thru the casing. Use a pin to turn it on.

Cannot raise vertical height after pushing button on back of monitor (button stuck in)


With the monitor in the lowest position, push down slightly on the monitor and push the button in. While holding the button in you should be able to raise the monitor with your other hand. This worked on the one I have.

My dell 1905FP power button flashes green and will not turn off, the screen is black.


Hello,

This is a common indication of a failure in the power supply. There are parts called capacitors that are used in the filter section of the power supply, when they go out the power supply can't properly turn on so you get no picture and a flashing power light. Here is a picture of the power supply board with the problem filter capacitors circled in yellow and below the picture in a link to a repair guide with details dis-assemble and repair instruction along with parts list for the Dell 1905FP and 1907FP models.

A very thin vertical brun line in the middle


If it's a straight vertical or horizontal line always in the same place it's a panel issue which the average user even with repairing skills will not be able to reliably repair ,Sorry.

Dell 2407WFP power on switch


When the switch is rotated to the correct position, run a piece of sellotape (or a strip of the plastic that comes on top of phone or watch screens etc) over the switch. Nearly invisible, simple, and solves the issue.

Monitor will not power on....


I just repaired one. Symptom was no power at all. When I plugged it in, I could hear the switching supply making a noise, like it was trying to turn on. I opened it up and It ended up being 2 capacitors in the power supply section. I seen the tops were swollen, they were 1000uF 10V. They were for the 5volt power section I believe.
I think they were C824 and C825. I removed both of them and replaced them with one 2200uF 10V cap. I powered it up and it works now.
