It could be a setting problem, power saver setting, or a mode that the monitor does not really support - things like refresh rate - or actual hardware.

Easiest way is to borrow another like monitor, and say another video cord and see if the problem remains, or if a newer monitor says 'out of range' or similar.

Then, if you have a fancy video card,remove it and use something primitive. Not reading instructions is a big cause.

If its not a setting issue, and as the inverter board is ok; if the above description is correct, reseat the inner board connecting cables.(wood fires and seaside locations) If not that, a lucky guess might be the electros on the logic board.

Video on 1800FP flashes on and off.


You need to check the output voltage of the power supply module to see if the 12vdc output is swtiching on and off, it can be power supply failure or it is sensing short circuits, it can also be the inverter board.

Inside there is a IC chip on the power pack that goes bad, replacement is called for also look for bad capacitors when you are inside looking around, those need to be replaced as well
hope this clears things up. dells third party who built these units did a rotten job on this model. that chip always fails.
