20 Most Recent Dell UltraSharp 2407WFP 24" LCD Monitor Questions & Answers

No. Monitors are different from TV's and are not able to connect directly to a Dish receiver. The frequencies the monitor uses are different that a TV. You can get video from a PC into a TV but not vice versa. You can use the second UHF output from the VIP 722 to connect an older TV without a digital tuner in it to that port. It will come out on channel 73 and will not be Hi def. You'll need to use the remote with the #2 on it to operate the receiver

Shine a bright light on the screen and press the Menu button... if you can barely see the outline of the menu come up in the middle of the screen, it means that your inverter / backlight needs to be replaced. You can get a new backlight / inverter for relatively cheap, so if you can do the repair yourself, it's worthwhile.
Otherwise it's the LCD panel itself, in which case you should go monitor shopping.

Cajun is an idiot. a BACKLIGHT is a pencil sized tube that provides light for the LCD. An inverter will take a small voltage and turn it into a large voltage, with a proportional decrese in current. Not nearly the same thing.

Go to LCDrepairs.com and buy the parts you need.

If you are not an electronics tech It would be remiss to advise you to interfere with a high tension device like a monitor. take it to where it can be serviced and keep your life. Only experienced people should open up a monitor and poke around 22000 volts is involved here and if its overheating the wiring on th ecoilod ids breaking doen or has broken down.

Hi, I can't offer you a fix for your overheat problem, but here's how to get into the 2407WFP!

Place the monitor face down on the bench. Remove the four screws from the back.
Turn the monitor over and lay on its back. With your fingertips gently ease the front bezel from the glass, starting far away from the buttons and not putting too much pressure on the glass. It comes away with a series of clicks.
I managed this easily, but if your fingers aren't strong enough you could use a lever (you MUST spread the load on the glass so as not to break it, and avoid doing too much damage to the plastic of the bezel!)
Work your way all the way round snapping the bezel from the front, but don't completely remove it as this will strain the ribbon cable from the buttons.
Lift the screen and rest it on one edge, and you will find the back starts to come free from the insides.
Carefully lay it flat on its bezel again and lift the main rear casing away.

You are in! To get at all the boards:
Undo the 8 gold-coloured screws from around the edge of the central metal cover (not the four which hold the VESA-mount in place) and all three covers can then be removed to expose the backlight inverter board, power supply board (very similar to the one in the 2405FPW, see related articles if the PSU is your problem), main controller, and USBhub/card reader PCB.

Hope that helps you - now to find out why it's bust!

It sounds like you could have a bad video cable. Check to make sure your cable is plugged securely to both the monitor and the computer. If it is, remove the cable and check for bent pins in the cable.

If you have a spare cable, I would just try switching it to cut down on troubleshooting the cable.

You will have to open it up and inspect the inside for burnt parts, bad caps, bad solder joints. This model is really delicate to take apart, must be real careful not to break the front panel ribbon cable. 2408wfp is almost the same as 2407.

2407 is almost the same as 2408 picture I have here, just be real careful not to move the front bezel too far from the chassis or you will break the cable! Use thin flat blade screw driver or special tool as shown in the video and work around the bezel REAL SLOW!

Replacement and instructions:
