Bob, I would suggest doing the FLASHLIGHT TEST, But you already see the image on the DARK LCD Panel. You could possibly even watch a 8-12 minute video clip from youtube on LCD monitor disassembly and repair, but it would sure put a terrible strain on your eyes not having those 2 thin, horizontal cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes emitting their nice bright, white light. If the displayed images on the unit were BRIGHT,SHARP,with good color definition then you might care to venture inside your monitor to make an inspection of the switch-mode-power-supply Electrolytic filter capacitors to make note if any of them exhibit swollenitius. Yes, Bob, you too can join the crowd of thousand's of users whoose tubes fail to light up anymore..due to poor quality far-east manufactured Electrolytic capacitors and or poor soldering of components to their respective circuit board. I won't provide you with any further info because you only described a symptom and no "WHAT SHALL I DO NEXT" question... I will leave you with some clues as to what to search for. www. badcaps.com, ccfldirect.com, also lots of stuff here on fixya, dell.com , www. lcdrepair.com , swollen caps, ....With a little knowledge, $20-$30 you could end up with a working monitor, or at least a spare "in the closet" unit if you go get a new one

I have a 3 yr Dell UltraSharp 1905FP LCD monitor. Recently, when I turn it on, the power on green light would blink continuously for about 1 minute with no picture before the light become steady green and have picture (everything working). Now it is up to 5 minutes. Other than waiting for the monitor to display the video, everything is fine. It acts like it is waiting for something to warm up. Does anyone know what is the problem? Thanks.
