Having problems with your Dell E228WFP LCD Monitor ?
After 1 year, the monitor DELL E228WFP started to turn black
\015 After 1 year, the monitor DELL E228WFP started to turn pitch black for no reason after 30 minutes or one hour of use. Everything was still working but you could'nt see anything. I always had to close it with the monitor's power button and reopen it. Thanks,Anna.\015
Ainamat, Did you do the FLASHLIGHT TEST to evaluate the status of the "switch-mode-power-supply"??? Every owner of a lcd display with "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" backlighting should know how to perform AND interpret the results!!!! It's a very easy test to do! FYI Your monitor has a backlighting sysem very similar to the NEW curlie-Q CFL energy-saving screw-in light bulbs!! They have an ELECTRONIC BALLAST (converter) circuit (ac to ac) to light them. Monitors have a INVERTER circuit (dc to ac) ballast circuit that generates 600-1100vac to light your CCFL's. If the SMPS detects a FAULT with itself or a circuit that it is supplying power to, It will go into SHUTDOWN mode to try and save the unit from a catastrophic, nonrecoverable failure. e.g. worst case sparks,smoke,fire!! Anna, you should READ and follow the threads in my other responses if you can get to my FIXYA profile pages under 12fixlouie, aka louie12fix and read what I have already written about the BLACK SCREEN of DEATH and YOUR options. If after doing some surfing of the net, you determine that this response has steered you to a solution to your BSOD problem, please rate this response on fixya. Good luck in your quest. 12fixlouie
