Dell E197FP LCD Monitor keeps turning on and off

My dad bought me this new monitor about 4mths ago, and its been great, but recently its been shutting itself on and off. Happens mostly when i'm using a program it will go black and the power light goes from green to orange then back to green, but the screen is still black, sometimes it stops when i press a button and sometimes it doesnt help at all. Iv'e checked my power managment settings and they are off and not set to put anything to sleep. any help?

This is the way how to examine where the problem is. You have to check that you can see the image on screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons (Power on both cpu and monitor), there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. They are easily replaced. If you cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.

I would take it back right away, when electronics break down in lees than 6 months it is not a good sign. Get the replacement or have it fixed under warranty.

This monitor is great. Just recently, after 3


It seems so.

1. Change the monitor cable and see if this still happens

2. Attach this monitor to another PC and see if this still happens

If it is still happening, then yes, it seems that it is failing.

My new 21' flatscreen monitor keeps shutting off :(


Usually when an LCD display shuts off on it's own this can be a power supply issue. I would say if you checked all the connections you may want to contact the manufacturer. If it is only a few months old then you should be able to get it replaced under warranty.

Also, you may have an auto shut off feature enabled on the display itself. You may want to go through the display's menu to very that this is not the case.

ViewSonc VX924 LCD Monitor


Check the information at Viewsonic's website regarding their warranty:

http://www.viewsonic.com/support/warranties/limited-warranty/

If you have your proof-of-purchase and it shows the monitor is less than a year old, it would be covered. You would need to follow the procedure on their website to have the unit repaired or replaced, but it would not be your job to try to fix it.

No menu


One of the buttons on the front of your monitor is probably stuck.
(Only one of the buttons work at a time on most monitors)

I cannot recommend taking it apart your self (have a tech do it)
But take off the front, check the buttons after you take off the front, and if it still occurs unplug the buttons from the monitor.
If it stops (which it should) replace or fix the controls)
If it doesn't, call an exorcist (just joking) or buy a new monitor.
