Monitor model 1702FP wont start. lights keep cycling


Hello,

The flashing power and signal lights are caused by 4 bad capacitors on the main driver board. Here is a link to information showing where they are and how to replace them.

Wont display anything, green light on power button keeps flashing


Hello,

The flashing light on the Dell E173 series indicates a failure in the power supply board. This series has several versions on the board so you will need to know the exact model, it is listed on the label at the bottom of the back cover. The versions are E173FPc, E173FPb and E173FPf. We have repair instructions posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/monitor-repair/dell-monitor-repair/ that cover each version on the unit. The repairs will require replacing a few pars that will need to be soldered.


I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Green light flickering & Sunset red screen display.


You've got components that have gone bad, probably from age and the normal heat inside a CRT monitor case.

I hate to say it, but it's really not worth fixing. You can usually find a used but working 17" monitor for under 20 bucks.

17 in dell monitor


Please disconnect the Monitor Data cable from Computer.
If you see Dell Colored bars, it means, monitor is working fine,
If still black, please ask for replacement, since Monitors have 3 years of warranty if not purchased with the computer.

Now connect the cable back to computer and turn the computer off by holding the power button on computer and turn it back on...

Blinking Green shows that computer is in sleep mode......

Hope this should resolve the issue.

Power light is green But no Raster on screen. Flashes only when I turn machine on or off.


Try the obvious first: make sure the cable from your computer is connected tightly to both the computer and the monitor.

Does your monitor have several receptacles for connecting different kinds of cables? If so, there is probably a way to tell it which one is active; my monitor has a button on the front labelled "Input". Look for something similar (switch, button, etc) and try it. Wait a second to see if you get a response; if not, press it again. If you have 4 plugs on your monitor, you may have to do this 4 times.

If you can tell me more about your monitor (make and model) or upload a picture of the place where the cable connects to the monitor, that might give some clues.

Flashing green power light - Black screen


I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard

Monitor flashes on and off!


Sounds like you have a bad connection from your monitor to your computer. First check and make sure the connection between them is tight. Does your computer boot up and run though? If your computer is not booting up the monitor will default back to the flashing green power light

Dell P780 17" CRT Monitor(3 yrs old) issue


That sounds like a monitor issue, not a video card. Gradual fading means components within the monitor are wearing out. However, I strongly advice against attempting repairs. CRT monitors hold a strong electrical charge. People have been injured and even killed by attempting to work on them without proper tools and training. A 17" CRT monitor is too cheap to be worth the risk (you can often get them used... I got mine for $20 at Goodwill).

Monitor Black, Green Power Light Flashes Monitor is 4 yrs. old


Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
