Question about Dell UltraSharp 2407WFP 24" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

How do I remove the back cover on a Dell 2407 WFP?

I feel that the backlight is overheating. After the first 20 minutes or so, the screen goes black. The lights are all on. If I turn the monitor off and back on it will immediately go black again. If I let it set for a few minutes, it will stay on for a while, until it heats up again. I am out of warranty and very dissapointed in Dell. Thanks

Hi, I can't offer you a fix for your overheat problem, but here's how to get into the 2407WFP!

Place the monitor face down on the bench. Remove the four screws from the back.
Turn the monitor over and lay on its back. With your fingertips gently ease the front bezel from the glass, starting far away from the buttons and not putting too much pressure on the glass. It comes away with a series of clicks.
I managed this easily, but if your fingers aren't strong enough you could use a lever (you MUST spread the load on the glass so as not to break it, and avoid doing too much damage to the plastic of the bezel!)
Work your way all the way round snapping the bezel from the front, but don't completely remove it as this will strain the ribbon cable from the buttons.
Lift the screen and rest it on one edge, and you will find the back starts to come free from the insides.
Carefully lay it flat on its bezel again and lift the main rear casing away.

You are in! To get at all the boards:
Undo the 8 gold-coloured screws from around the edge of the central metal cover (not the four which hold the VESA-mount in place) and all three covers can then be removed to expose the backlight inverter board, power supply board (very similar to the one in the 2405FPW, see related articles if the PSU is your problem), main controller, and USBhub/card reader PCB.

Hope that helps you - now to find out why it's bust!

    Uhhh.... that monitor is disassembled far easier with a shim pop around the outside of the bezel, going at the screen from the glass side is folly..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZE_R8CPt...

My dell laptop has a red line down it,just in the last 2 days it has started to fade to white then after a couple of mins goes back to normal.


It could be overheating, a failing inverter, or your LED screen is on it's way out.

try removing the battery. wait 20 minutes, reinsert that battery and power back on.

If that's not it it try replace the inverter. They run around $20 on ebay. They're not universal so search under your make and model.
Then search around youtube on inverter replacement for you laptop.

If it's the LED (screen), it going probably much more expensive. ($400~$800) to replace.

if it;s a new laptop call dell and see if it's covered under warranty.

This is a backlight problem. The picture is there but there is no light from behind the LCD screen. It could be due to faulty capacitors, which are easy to replace. It could be a faulty Inverter transformer, which is harder to fix but he backlight controller board can usually be replaced at a reasonable price. If you have soldering experience you may be able to replace the faulty capacitors - look for capacitors with bulging tops.
Repalcing the inverter board in a job for someone with electronics experience. You can buy a universal inverter board for about £15 to £20 from e-bay.
20 inch monitors can be bought for about £100 to £150 so you need to decide whether it is economical to repair.

Turn on laptop, loads fine, screen comes up, then screen goes black. computer is still running and you can see it if you put a flashlight on, but screen remains black.


Try to adjust the back-light on the screen by pressing the FN and UP arrow to increase the light.

If that does not work then it means that your back-light on the screen has either failed completely of works for a couple of minutes and then it goes off. You need to have your screen replaced with a new one.


Sorry for the bad news.

Hi the sceen goes black when it is switched on for ten minutes if I switch it off for a few minutes the sceen comes back on. It will then shut off again after a few minutes. Thanks Alan


This is due to the inverter for the backlight, or the backlight itself going bad. You are going to be better off replacing the screen unless you are handy with electronics.

The montier turns on then turns right off


Hi!
When a monitor display image for a second and then goes to black screen... there are possible reasons why this problem occur..

1. You need to check if the high voltage ballast transformer of your backlight inverter is about to be burned... the transformer is overheating..that's why you experience the monitor working for a couple of seconds and then it will shut off until the transformer cool down again and then it will be ready to work again...

2. Check also the backlight inverter if it is busted...the backlight inverter is the light source responsible for the image display you seen on your screen. If this are busted then all that you will be seeing is black screen

3. You need to check the power supply section for possible loose connections and possible blown and bad capacitors..

the ballast transformer has direct effect on power supply section.. when there is overheating transformer,,, the supply current from the power supply section becomes unstable.. and will not be able to supply the remaining good working ballast transformer.

In case you do not know, the ballast transformer generates high voltage for the backlight inverter to work....

Please be advise that if you don't have the knowledge, the proper skills and the right tools to open the back cover of your monitor and replace its part...don't risk it...

Otherwise, bring your unit to a credible technician and avail of warranty if there is any.....


Much appreciated if you rate this help...thanks...

How to open dell monitor cover model E207WFPc


Remove the Stand, Remove the 4 Screws from behind the spot where the stand connects to, then take a flat ended object such as a butter knife or a sharp knife, and unclip the black face. then the screen comes right apart, this solution is also the same for the 20xx-30xx Dell WFP Models.

Used as second monitor suddenly stared to go dark


If the screen is lighting up for a fraction of a second when you turn on & then goes dark, this indicates a fault either with the backlights on the screen or the inverter part of the monitor. You can check the backlights if you have access to a backlight tester, you need to remove the rear cover & connect the backlight cables into the tester, if this checks ok then look for a problem on the inverter board, checking the capacitors for any signs of distress.
