Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
Hi, I have a Dell E173FPf LCD monitor that worked great for three years. When I turned on the computer and monitor this morning, there were seven tiny, black shapes that are stuck on the screen. I did the self-test by unplugging the cable and turning on the monitor and they can be seen as white-ish against the black background and black against all other colors. There were no dead pixels when I shut down last night. The shapes don't look like dots, rather they look like punctuation marks. Any ideas what could have caused this?
Monitor may have died or someone might have dropped it?
no other explanation. monitors can be gotten fairly cheap now-maybe at a PC Recycling shop or get new

SOURCE: Replaced LCD Screen
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.

Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.
