Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
The monitor I had developed large blocks of dead pixels in it, so I disassembled the monitor and looked at the LCD panel itself and discovered that it was a LG.Philips LM170E01 (A5)(NC). I looked online and found a replacement screen that was a almost brand new LM170E01 (A5) LCD Panel. When I disconnected the old LCD Panel at the 30-pin LVDS connection, and plugged in the new panel, the screen did not work. The backlight lit up the screen and I can tell the controls worked, but the image is not correct. There are vertical lines across the entire screen and no adjustment makes them disappear. They vary in color, but almost seem to be in black and white. When I plug the old monitor back in, it still works, there are just the large spots of dead pixels on it as before. I'm not sure what the difference between the monitors is. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
There 2 diffrent LVDS connectors normally on the monitor. a plat one with contacts on one side and a female connector that accepts pins on the end. I would make sure the connectors match. If that does not fix it I would change out the logic board. Check www.lcdrepair.us for instruction videos and parts for that unit.
