Having problems with your Dell E228WFP LCD Monitor ?

Hi there My monitor is showing dark colours as bright green. I have tried an old monitor and it is fine? Thanks


Answers :

On the monitor that is showing dark colors as bright green, its probably going to be the screen that is bad but there is one way to verify it.

Take the back off of the lcd. After you get the back off you will see two boards, a power board and a main board.

Look at the capacitors on both of those boards. They are the ones with the silver top on them. Good capacitors have flat silver tops on them. Bad capacitors have puffy silver tops to them and might leak on the bottom as well.

If you find any bad caps then make sure they are replaced with capacitors of the same UF rating and the same or higher volts.

Plus the striped side of the capacitor has to go into the board with the striped side as well. They have to match up, thats very important.

If you don't find puffy caps to replace then the screen is bad for sure.




Have the monitor checked by an electronics expert.\015\012I would not advise you to attempt any repairs yourself.\015\012Try the monitor on another system and if the issue has gone, suspect a corrupted driver on your PC. If the issue remains, have the monitor checked..
