Question about Dell E153FP 15" LCD Monitor

Open Question

Dell E153fp monitor goes blank. If you turn button off and then back on the moinitor will come on for 1 or 2 seconds before going dark again. The power light indicates the poer is still on. If you keep doing this 40 to 50 times the monitor will eventually stays on, but will do this again after a long period of inactivity. I have disabled the hibernate and picked a 5 day screen saver period, but still have a problem. If you push any of the buttons on the front of the monitor all you see is symbol of a Lock. You can't access any of the monitor adjustments

SOURCE: problem in monitor

I had the same problem. I found recommendations here and on other sites that I needed a new backlight inverter / power supply. I found exactly what I needed at this site: http://www.lcdrepair.us/ part number: E173FPCPWR. The have pictures of the exact card you need you need to by. Mine cost $50 plus shipping ($14.69) (ugh!) I just installed it today and it's working great. You need to feel comfortable popping the back of your monitor and working with little screws and connectors. You may find the part cheaper online. Sure beats buying a new monitor.

SOURCE: blinking monitor power button and flashing image

i bought a new acer 19" . i will try to change the capacitors and see how it works. if not, i will try the power inverter option. but my new lcd itself cost me 100$ after rebate. so paying 70 pounds for an inverter is unwise. previous poster, I am sure it is problem with monitor and not the connector coz it doesn't do the self diagnosis. thanks for all the responses so far.

SOURCE: E153FP Monitor screen goes black light is green

I agree. The capacitors have popped. I found a local TV repair shop and the guy put new capacitors on the board for me for $5, so it's an easy fix. The monitor is difficult to get apart, but if you'll look carefully you can see small slots in the plastic, mine were on the bottom side, then insert a very tiny flat screwdriver carefully seperating the cover, using a slightly larger screwdriver in the gap, twist gently until the case pops open. Remember to take all the screws out of the exterior, and not to push the screwdriver in too far and scratch the screen. Good Luck.

Solution: Replace cap. Radio Shack sells a 1000uF, 35V cap for $2. This will work.

Why did the cap go bad? The cap is too close to a heat sink and over heated.

What does this cap do? This cap sends a signal to an IC which keeps the monitor 'on' after the power switch is pushed. When the cap is weak, AC ripple voltage is applied to the IC and it sends a signal to shut the monitor off.

Opening the Monitor: These monitors are difficult to open.

The two plastic pieces snap together and must be pried apart with a flat screw driver.

After removing the stand, you need to insert a flat screw driver at the bottom of the screen where two slots are located. Then work the screw driver around until the two plastic pieces are separated.

Remove the cover plate and unscrew the push button circuit board.

Unplug the monitor cords from the driver board and remove the screen.

Unscrew the mounting screws from the power supply board and remove.

You will need to pinch the plastic support in the middle of the board to remove.

Cap Replacement:

Cap is located near a copper heat sink and the value will be on the side of the cap. It will be bulged up on the top. You will see burn marks on the board surrounding the cap. Unsolder the cap.

Install the new cap and solder. Make sure you connect + of the cap to + marked on the board.

Be careful not to solder across joints.

Keep leads long so you can bend the cap as far away from the heat sink as possible.

Reassemble monitor and turn on.

This should solve the problem.

Hello,

The power supply in the unit has died. This is a very common problem with this series of monitor after 2-3 years of use. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. Check out our step by step repair guide posted on our site at: www.ccl-la.com Our guide gives parts values and location information as well as how to open the unit up. If you don't feel like doing the repair we also offer repair services, see our web site for details.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Sounds like either there is a bad connection from the computer to the monitor, or the monitor has a faulty power regulator, causing the monitor to overheat prematurely, and shut off.

Screen goes blank when first turned on, have to keep restarting m


Hello,

If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

The screen on my computer (dell E153FP 15" lcd) keeps going black everytime I turn it on. I can still see a very dark picture and the green light is still on but I can't see much. Usually I just turn it...


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Screen goes blank after a second


More likely to be transistors.

Check the solder joints, fuse, transistors (c5706/5707), caps and look at other Dell albums also.

Screen comes on then goes blank after 1 second


Hello,

Is the power led button still on? if yes, it means the picture board is malfunctioning.

The picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes black after a second, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

The panel initially displays and then goes blank


johnerm, Good going John! At least YOU tried doing a swapout to another KNOWN GOOD pc to prove out that the E153FP is indeed the culprit!!! Now for the hard part. Do you have a bright flashlight? Reconnect E153FP to pc with WIN-desktop as the displayed image. then and only then turn on E153FP and note the time it takes to GO TO BLACK SCREEN. Is it 1, 2, --5,---20 seconds???? Now point at different angels about 1 inch from screen a bright flashlight to an area that "should" have a desktop "icon" showing. LOOK very closely!! If you SEE a very faint image of the desktop the units "switch-mode-power-supply" is in PARTIAL SHUTDOWN mode. (still has +5v or +3.3v to supply vga/lcd interface board) If you SEE NOTHING, then SMPS is in FULL SHUTDOWN mode. Get back to me, 12fixlouie with your SMPS flashlight evaluation and pay a visit to YOUTUBE fyi search and view video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" to see if DIY interests you! Also try www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm run by another tech on fixya nickname "buddymc" fyi. If this was of some help, rate this response on fixya. 12fixlouie aka louie12fix or lmistyrel @ aim.com

Screen Goes Blank


Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.
