Powers Off and Won't Stay On Fix

I show how to fix a DELL Monitor that will power off a few seconds after being turned on.

on Jul 31, 2017 | Dell E176FPB 17" TFT LCD Flat Panel...

Have tried checking the power cables or changing it? How about the power source also? If yes? There might be problem on the built in power supply of the monitor.

Replace the high voltage transformer. It is the ballast for the backlight.. If you could pinpoint the one that's overheating then that is the one that needs replacement. Much better if you will replace the four transformer...

Hope that answer your question..
Much appreciated if you could rate this help. thanks.

In most cases, the problem is caused by faulty filter capacitors in the power supply. You can open the back and replace the capacitors that look bulged and leaky or replace all the electrolytics in the power supply board. If it continues to turn off like that, the tubes are at the end of their service life.

If you have no desire to buy a new monitor at that point, the tubes are able to be replaced, but for overall simplicity- just order the replacements aet up for your specific monitor from Dell. Make sure they have the boots, the plastic attachments and connector for "drop in" use. If the tubes require connectors to be soldered on, it gets tedious and is not worth it from a standpoint of shop time..

my_secret_mb, Stop pressing the ON/OFF switch! It's broke!!! The unit's internal power supply will need some work done on it. Unit will need to be evaluated first!! This is a common problem for ALL LCD monitors. If unit out of warranty period, then you will need to do some intense speed reading of my higher page number responses in my fixya profile to understand the problem your cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp back-lit lcd monitor has and the options that you have. You will also need to base your decision on the age and total number of "ON" hours unit has seen during it's lifetime. Do not dispair or feel sad about what has happened to your monitor. A low side guess would be 50 units/day fail world-wide. Your unit may have failed filter capacitors or possible failed solder joint on printed circuit board. (thermally intermittant) I hope this helps you. 12fixlouie north of "Windy City" USA
