Dell P991 Glitches

  1. Hello all,

    Need a hand with a Dell/Sony P991 monitor. The symptoms were random glitches
    in the geometry after powerup, and a once in a while power glitch where the
    monitor would shut itself down after powerup and then back on again. I
    managed to fix the geometry glitches with some resoldering, but the power
    glitch is still there. Haven't been able to pinpoint that problem, and I'm
    wondering if anyone else has run across this. Any suggestions on where to
    look are appreciated.
     
  2. Almost forgot - the power LED stays on while the power glitches... the
    switch itself seems fine.

  4. Thanks - was hoping not to hear that, but that's the way it goes sometimes
    ;)

    Popped it open again and resoldered a few more bad joints I missed before -
    hope that fixes it. The shutdown thing only happens once every two weeks or
    so, so it may be a while before I can say it's gone. Thanks again for the
    suggestion!

    problem.
