Dell touch screen monitor not lighting

I have a 1 1/2 year old touch sceen pos system that apears to have the back light turned off. I can see that the screen is working but it is almost a ghost imiage. If I turn the monitor power switch off and back on it will light correctly but only for a milli second or so. Although it is dark I can see my sceen saver if I look closely but it is very hard to see. Do I have a bad monitor, vidio card or a setting turned off? Help! Thanks, Jim

    Our restaurant has three Dell 15 inch monitors Model# E153FPT that all developed that same problem just this year. If you turn the monitor off and on the screen will flash on for a millisecond then go dark again. I would love to know what is wrong and what it would take to fix this problem.

We have the same monitor and I found cap C922 swollen on the inverter board it is a [email protected] hi temp cap which costs 25 cents to a dollar depending on where you buy it. If you can solder it is a cheap and easy fix. I'm not saying this will fix them all just stating what I found with ours.

Repairing the Dell E153FP with this complaint is not that hard but one that should be done by a qualified service technician or monitor repair specialist. Usually when you have this type of problem it is because either the inverter board, filter capacitors or the main board has one or more burnt components.
Any TV/LCD repair man can test this out for you if you don't mind paying them to do tht typical charges at our shop for such a diagnosis run around 35-50 dollars... this cost is usually included if you have them repair the item for you.

Why does my HP vs17 monitor screen keep going to blank black screen like it turned off but did' power button light is still on? Everything is running but no picture.....keeps happening everytime...

this old monitor has 2 issues.
1: it has CCFL tubes that love to burn out (backlamps)
most this old are long go, yell,dim.,blinking or DEAD.
2: push the menu button on front of mon. turn off power saver.

3: if the PC goes to sleep, or hibernete mode (parked)
then that is 100% normal
if you dont like feature then go to windows control panel
click power, ICON and turn off all monitor sleep /hibernate modes.

that assumes windows, no OS stated.

if the lamps are dead,
use flash light pointed to sceen, see data. ? bingo for bad CCFT tubes.

Dell laptop Studio XPS. About 1 year old. Screen has gone black can hear it boot up, it makes the sounds so I know it is on. It has a webcam and I can see the light for it above the screen I have tried the...

the quickest way to test this is to try connecting the computer to an external monitor. another thing you can do is to reseat the LCD cable from the motherboard. I would recommend you use another computer to check the manual at in order to get the step by step walkthrough. on the manuals use the one for removing/replacing the LCD to see how to remove the LCD cable and reconnect it back to the system.

You need a new lcd screen & while you're at it replace the inverter. There's no other option. Check ebay for the parts.

My hppavilion f1503 flat panel lcd monitor screen stay blank

The monitor should be plug and play, and you've already figured out that it's not your computer by plugging into a working monitor.

This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If the power light is blinking on-and-off, or just staying on with no image, that's the problem. There is a slight chance that it could be the light itself, but inverters fail more commonly.

If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old it is, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

Screen goes black, but power light is on (not blinking)

The problem is not with your screen. Its the problem of Video Card of your system which is unable to send Video Signals to the Screen.

Dell Monitor goes blank, green light still on.

Have you tried connecting that monitor to another PC. It sounds like you may have a problem with the monitor itself (component failure, heat problem, etc)

Laptop back light

the cost to replace the lcd would exceed the value of the laptop. Be cheeper to get a new one.
