Monitor E151FPb

This question is not answered

My monitor blacks out. After wiggling wires or tapping, it comes on. I would like to get instructions to disassemble it.

I don't think it is the graphics card or drivers.

  • If disassembly instructions are going to be available, I suspect they'll be in the 'Service' manual Idea

    I found the User Guide, but there's no trace of a service manual - which I suspect is because it's not something Dell are happy to provide dismantling instructions for?

    From experience, I've found that:   “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!

    Thanks for trying. I did read that there's a danger of shock. I saw pictures of one disassembled. I tried taking it apart, but I couldn't.
