Black shapes stuck on 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?

You have a filter problem, check power supply for bad capacitors.

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.

Yes, but the cost is not worth it. If you get it apart you will no doubt find a couple of bulging capacitors. Dell site has the disassembly instructions.

Dell monitor black screen


If you have another monitor for desktop hook other monitor up then under hardware and software in control panel, add the dell monitor, then hook it up. Some operating systems need the driver to be added first. My brother almost threw away agood dell lcd monitor before I told him this, now he loves the lcd, works great.

No power to monitor


4 years is a good life for a monitor, so i agree you can stick to Dell since its already proven itself... :) - As you mentioned, this monitor is not currently being sold from Dell, I would suggest an upgrade to a 19" - http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&sku=320-5629 or a 23" one http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/Displays/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-7339 ... if i were you, i would choose a 23", but for a higher pricing :) (Answered this earlier for someone else too i suppose!)

Flat Cable (P-Two AWM 20969 E221612)


you need to be patient because if you cant get it from the dell stores and still you can get it online you will need to visit a computer hardware vendor/ repairer who have thesame monitor but the monitor is completely damaged so that he can repalce it for you. but it is going to be expensive.

Dell E173FPf lcd- no picture,steady green light


E173FPf Mfg December 2004
This E173FPF has changed much inside from the November 2003 E172fpb which had the famous 4 identical transistors 5707 that would tend to fail in pairs. If your newer E173FPF displays a green power light and fails to display a picture try replacing the 220uf25v capacitors at C6 and C26. Test them with a volt ohm meter and they will test Ok, replace them anyway. Radio Shack did not have the 25v so I used the 35v, display works fine now. There is an E173FPF repair kit with directions available on Ebay if you don't have a parts store in your area and would prefer delivery.

i'm not an expert at anything...x'cept maybe dumpster diving. God Bless

Dell e173fpf lcd monitor is grey


Sounds like the AD section of the board may be junk. I did the same thing - bought the board from lcdrepair.com.

I submitted an RMA request to get a replacement. The process was difficult due to the pdf form they make you fill out. Lots of errors and no good way to submit it, since it wants to use outlook, but the pdf isn't configured properly to do so. Seems fishy, but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt for now. We'll see.
