Dell SP2208WFP Flat Panel Monitor flickers out and goes black.

I just bought my dell sp2208wfp flat panel monitor about a month ago and all of a sudden now my monitor will go on and then flicker out and the power will stay on. The screen will not come back on unless i turn off the monitor and then turn it back on again, but even after that it is on for about 2 seconds and goes black again! Help! I dread having to call Dell so I am hoping someone can help me with this. Has anyone had this issue with this monitor.

    Dell is sending me a new monitor, so all is well. Thanks again for all your help!

    I had exactly the same problem after about 6 Dell to replace it under warranty.

    I had the exact same problem TWICE. I had it replaced once under warranty and a few months later the same problem with my second monitor. It is clearly a defective product.

    Startup of my Dell XPS 420 computer is normal, but monitor remains in power save mode. I have some static problems in my office.

Pc monitor will not come out of hibernation

This may work for you it did for my son, Open control panel go to power options. set your pc to home/ office or what ever you use it for even always on if you like. Also at the top there is a hibernation icon open it make sure it is unchecked. You can also find the download for your monitor and see if there are any updates get them. and open up the file update,it there are any. some have an option for all kinds of settings display and such. Good luck

Dell 22" monitor goes black


Your monitor probably has bad capacitors now. Bring it to a local electronic repair shop and have the monitor tested. They can easily replace any bad capacitors.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.
