Having problems with your Dell E153FP 15" LCD Monitor ?

Answers :


You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you aregood at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htmYou can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the badparts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor shouldwork fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct +and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the newone the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offera repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so pleaserate my solution.
