Dell 1503FP 15" LCD Monitor - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


Hello there.
Seems like electronics pack up but try an old one. disconnect all the data cables from your monitor side(HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA, USB etc.) or computer side if the ones on display are built-in. Leave only the power cable. Unplug the monitor`s power cable. Press the POWER button on the front of the display and keep it pressed for 45 secs. Plug everything back and give it a try.
Good luck.

if the monitor led only turns on initially and then off this is an indication that the backlight circuit has failed. from memory the transistors(small) involved are close to the small transformers, usually 4 of them and 2 have failed, the safety shuts off the monitor. chassis are typically clipped together and hard to pull apart. goodluck

Looks like you need to purchase a new monitor. If it's too worn out then it's the outcome. I also had the same problem before and I ended up buying a new one. You should not experience that thing if it's new.

You didn't say which OS you're running. However, it looks like you need to restart your computer in safe mode. This URL explains how to get in safe mode. When the computer boots the video it will look a bit grainy and you won't be able to see the entire desktop without using the scroll bars.

Both XP and Vista don't allow you to perform such an operation through the regular procedure and, as a result, you will only be able to get a screen resolution of 800×600 with the consequence that some icons and programs won't be displayed correctly. This is because Safe Mode just loads only basic services and drivers which are strictly necessary for Windows to run.

Fortunately, by employing the following techniques, you can get around this restriction permitting you to get whatever screen resolution you want.

Windows XP:
  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the Settings tab.
  4. Under Screen Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully changed the resolution settings.
Windows Vista:
  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Personalize.
  3. Click Display Settings.
  4. Under Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced Settings.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully change the resolution settings.

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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 monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

You need to installed correct driver for your VIDEO CARD also, right now it may be using Microsoft generic video card driver.
You also need to set the PC video resolution to the native resolution of this monitor: 1024 x 768 @60Hz.

Sounds to me like there might be some bad capacitors on the power board. When they go bad the have a puffy silver top to them instead of the normal flattop on them.

If you can get inside of that monitor then look for capacitors that look puffy. If you find some then make sure you buy new ones of the same UF rating and at least the same voltage or higher. You will need soldering skills. You would need to unsolder the old ones and put the new ones back on with the striped side facing the striped side on the board.

That should resolve the problem of the power board. If you look at the power board and you don't find any bad capacitors then you'll need to get a new monitor cause the power boards for that monitor is not available.

Please try it on another PC first, just want to make sure. Then read below and look at the Dell albums before DIY repair.

I am angry with dell computers...however their monitors are without equal in my opinion. More settings on the dell monitor. Also i have had dell monitors going on eleven years and have not had one single problem. No I don't work for them LOL:)

THE PROBLEM IS THE MONITOR IT SELF.

IT IS TIME TO BUY A NEW MONITOR. I KNOW ALOT OF OF US CANNOT AFFORD A NEW MONITOR EVERY TIME ONE BRAKES, I HAVE FOUND THAT SECOND HAND STORES SALE THERE MINITORS FROM 1-2 DOLLARS PER INCH, I PICKED UP IBM FLAT SCREEN 20" AROUND 20.00 USD. AND IT STILL RUNNING AND I HAVE HAD IT FOR A YEAR OR MORE NOW.

There is a loose connector on the cable or the cable attachment on the PC board. Jiggle the connector as its connected and see if this causes the LCD to fire up.

try unplugging the monitor cable frm the back of the computer & make sure the monitor is connectd to a known good wall outlet.....chk if it shows any self test on the monitor......if it shows anything thn it is related to the port on the computer or the video card.....bt if it doesnt shw anything, u might hv to replace the monitor

Dell 1503FP 15"... | Answered on Jun 30, 2008 | 142 views


Is the cable connected securely? You may need to check your video card also. You may be able to disconnect the cable and get a red, green, blue icon on the screen. If that appears normal then there is nothing wrong with the monitor itself, it may be the cord or the video card.

Hope this helps!

To my knowledge, there is no easy fix. If the LCD is not powering on and your AC adapter indicates there is power, then it is in the circuitry of the LCD assy and your best bet is a TV repairman.

Odds are, that you can buy a replacement cheaper that the cost to repair that one (1800FP is an 18" LCD by the way) You can buy a 19" Wide aspect Dell LCD at Walmart for $199

Yes, The largest of the 2 boards in there. (left side of the monitor if you were looking at it from the fornt.)

If you can get a photo of it, it is possible it could be a different variation in your monitor. They tend to slap them together with whatever parts they have.
