Dell E173FP - After sometime the screen switches off

Hi, My Dell flat screen monitor, E173FP, is about 1 year old. For the past 2 weeks, when it is running for say 30-60 minutes, I notice the screen momentarily brightens up and within a second after that it switches off even though the computer is still running. The power switch still shows power in it. If I switch-off and then switch it on from the monitor's power button, the picture re-appears but goes off again within a few seconds. This situation of picture off-power off-power on-picture on-picture off can repeat itself many times. Once it starts, it makes the working on PC impossible thereafter. It happens irrespective of whether I am on internet or working on any local application. Any solutions?

    I have the same problem with my Dell 3008WFP. Dell have replaced it 3 times, but within a couple of days the problem starts again - the screen flickers very brightly for about a second then shuts down. The blue light indicates that the power is still on - I have to switch it off and on again to get the screen to work again..

Sounds like the power inverters went out on alot of these dell flat panels...dell should make it right with these customers i think it is faulty hardware or design

Mine does this too...honestly if you hit the back of the monitor with some force it will clear up... It sucks but it works for my Dell monitor.

Sorry not a solution - but I have started experiencing the exact same problem over the last month although sometimes, on switching on again, it will run for 10-15 minutes before the problem re-emerges. Initially I put it down to the v. hot weather in July but it still continues. So I would also appreciate any solutions!

I have a Dell E173FP 17 inch Flat Panel LCD Monitor. About two weeks ago after having turned it off at night (leaving the PC on) then turning the monitor back on in the morning it would light up to half of...


The monitor can be repaired - by replacing one or both the fluorescent tube and inverter. You can have the work done for you - or you can attempt it yourself. Lamp prices vary based on size - but most hover in the $10 range. Inverters can vary in price too - but run more than lamps for the most part. There are numerous suppliers for these parts such as this and instructions about how to do it such as this.

I hope this helps! Please rate my reply - thanks!

Dell flat screen monitor does not come on after


Sounds like a capacitor on the power strip inside the monitor is failing.
The cost to repair can run $400.00. A tv repair shop may be able to fix it, but most technicians recommend buying a new monitor.
However, if you are experienced in electronics, you can disassemble the monitor and replace the capacitor. Radio Shack sells them for between $15 to $20.

Flickering switch light, blank screen


Hi, First of all it is not advisable to open up monitors without proper tools as they contain hazardous elements. Dell monitors however do have a 3 year SEPARATE warranty. Check on the back of the monitor and look for the monitor serial number. is should start with CN-xxxxx-,, or JP-XXXXX-. give that to a dell tech and they should be able to replace that.
