Question about Dell UltraSharp 1907FP 19" LCD Monitor

Taking the 1907fpt apart

I just saw your post where your 1907fpt quit working and you had taken it apart. I also have the 1907fpt but for me, the lcd got cracked when something hit it. I just found and ordered a replacement lcd panel for $30 some bucks from Ebay, but I am trying to take it apart and am unable to figure it out so far.

I have taken out the only 4 screws, it looks like the black panels in the back come apart somehow? I will continue to work gently with it but while I am waiting (we just ordered it so it won't be in for a few days anyway) I figured I would ask a pro :)

If you could email me back at

OK, thanks to hihai in another posting, I was able (finally) to get into my monitor. Use a wide, thin knife and insert it between the grey plastic and the black plastic at the top or bottom of the monitor. (its easier at the top or bottom as you can distinctly see the deliniation between the grey and black - on the sides it's all black and the fit of this bezel around the monitor is so tight it's really hard to get in to the crack to pry the thing off). At any rate, once you get your thin knife (I too used a butter knife) into that crack, gently slide it to one end or the other. There are tabs near each end and a couple in the middle - you'll feel a bit of resistance near each tab as you slide the knife. Position the knife close to one of the end tabs. Rotate the knife handle outwards away from the monitor effectively prying the bezel upwards away from the face of the monitor. As you pop each tab, work towards the opposite end of the same side of the monitor. Once you have both ends dislodged, inserting the knife to pry up the all black sides will be easier. Unfortunately once you have the top (or bottom) and both sides loose the remaining top (or bottom depending on which one you started with) becomes a bit tighter to get the knife into.

Here's my word of caution. Be very gentle. While I was trying to find the way to get the bezel to come off I attempted to slide it in between the monitor face and the bezel itself and unfortunately cracked the glass face inside the monitor rendering it useless.

As for the power button, the button had worn down so much from use there simply was no travel left to push the contact on the switch board in the bezel. I tried a dab of hot glue on the inside of the power button to give it some more contact to the switch on the circuit board but didn't have enough. I was able to push the switch on the board with the circuit board removed from the bezel (with a tiny screwdriver not my fingers) and the monitor powered up fine. It was then I discovered the broken screen. Damn.

Thanks. I was able to find a video online of a similar Dell Flat Panel model, and using it as a guide, I was able to safely take my screen apart.

I replaced it with the working one I got online and it works great now! The only thing is, when I put it back together I had to actually take it apart twice more after I thought I was done...once was because I forgot the release button for the stand, and once for something else that wasn't quite right...but other than that, it is working great now!

The Monitor has a constant green fuzzy look, almost like static

Try it on another PC, check the connector at both ends of the VGA cable. If it still has problem, the next step will be taking it apart, but you should look through my pictures first so you will know what to look for (bad caps with bulging/leaking top) inside without any test equipment.
Post back what you find so we can guide you further.

I have dell 1907fpt, the lcd screen powers up for just 2 or 3 seconds.

The backlight might be bad. As far as I know, there isn't a way to replace that, so you'll have to get a new monitor.

Lcd quit working

There is a 95% chance that your powerboard needs to be upgraded with a few newer-better components.
I repair many gateway boards on ebay and this is a common occurence.

There is also a slight chance that a bulb is weak and is causing that effect.

If you unplug the vga cord while it is on, let it sit about 30 seconds till the power light turns to amber and then plug the vga cord back in you may get the desktop to flash on for a second or two.

It would have to be taken apart and the boards looked at to get a better idea.
If you do take it apart, send me a picture of the board to I may see a problem

Dell 1907FPt picture appears for three seconds, then off, LED power remains

I have the same problem. I talked to a few people and it is believed that the condition has been caused by a power surge.
My monitor is out of warranty, so I intend to open it up to check the fuse(s).

I will post result of that soon.
