Question about Dell E153FP 15" LCD Monitor
Filmorepetty, The "switch-mode-power-supply" has gone into SHUTDOWN mode because it has detected a fault with itself or another circuit. Or it could have just blown a small fuse on the circuit board of the SMPS. Will the pilot lamp light-up? Did it have a clean, bright, crisp, image displayed on the lcd panel the day before? How old or how many total (approx) "ON" hours of use has it seen? Do you know that 98% of lcd monitors use "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" and an accompanying "electronic ballast" circuit to generate the WHITE LIGHT needed for you to see the pretty colors on the LCD Panel?? Same basic lighting technology as the new screw-in socket curlie-Q CFL light bulbs! Only your monitor's lamps are thinner and straight and hung on the rear of the LCD panel. A failure of the ballast circuit could cause SMPS to shutdown. I suggest you visit some other websites for more info on what other owners are doing to try and repair BLACK SCREEN lcd monitor problems. The first place to go would be YOUTUBE and search and view the longer 6-12 minute video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" just FYI and to know what you are dealing with??? Your unit could also have FAILED electrolytic filter capacitors on the SMPS printed circuit board. I'm 12fixlouie Bye for now.
