Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 204BW I am having a problem with the links opening up. When I click ona link it goes to the top of the monitor in a long bar clear across the top. The more links I click on the more they layer up on long boxes across the top, just like the address bar. I can open them by clicking on the little square next to the X on the right corner, the box you would use to enlarge the picture. No one has been able to solve my problem, passing the buck from AT&T to Dell to the monitor, but nothing works. My PC Tech expert has never seen this happen and does not know how to solve it.

Do you have friend that has a laptop? If yes, you can have your monitor hooked up to external VGA connector. Your problem may or may not disapear. If it does it is likely that the graphic chip is to blame. You may find a inexpensive graphic card (plenty available) that will work.

A red or pink tint to the screen indicates that the back light bulbs are failing and are about to burn out. Its time to look for a new monitor.

My samsung syncmaster 204bw power light keeps blinking and wont turn on.


Does it do the same with another PC?
If it is monitor, then please read below
Look for bad caps first:
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
