Question about Dell E171FPb 17" TFT LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Monitors on/off green light flashes

I just began having a problem with my monitor. My wife first experienced it, she said a blue screen showed up with a warning to shut off the computer or files could be lost and it also had a time clock that was counting down. Not knowing what to do she let it shut down. The screen went black, the on/off light blinks repeatedly, and the monitor power on/off switch doesn't work. The only way to power down is by unplugging the power cord. I was online with Dell, someone in India, and he could not identify the reason for the flashing green light. While I was chatting with him the monitor returned to normal ops. This morning I woke to the same problem as described. Any ideas on this? Thanks, Trent

    I had this exact same problem. Happened once, then went away. Came back the next day, and it never came back again.

    I have the exact problem. tried the monitor on 2 other computers. It also does that without the monitor being plugged in.....usually there is a message on the screen or color pattern.Seems to be a power source fault inside the monitor. Cannot seem to take apart this panel.

Try first unplugging the monitor and the computer from the wall for 12 to 24 hours. If this does not work, hook up another monitor to the puter to see if the problems with the puter or the monitor.

Why did my screen turn light blue lcd1712 ?


Please try to connect your computer to a different monitor. It may be that you're experiencing the notorious "blue screen of death", but you will be able to determine whether that's the case by trying another monitor. Please keep me posted. Thanks!

Phone shuts off, turn back on battery shows low. wifes phone does samething. not a battery issue.


Yes it is a battery issue. Take out the battery and spin it on a shiny flat surface. If it spins, even the slightest, that indicates a swollen battery and it won't hold a charge or charge completely.

I have a Samsung LED computer monitor (model S23A300B). The monitor connects to my Macbook air. The Samsung monitor recently stopped showing the picture on my laptop. Instead, red, green, blue and white...


Try the plugging the setup into a different monitor to eliminate the lead however it sounds like the monitors died. With cost of screens even if you can get hold of one you'll be better off getting a new monmitor.

My pc desktop is showing a white screen when its on what should i do?


Is it an LCD monitor ?

When an LCD screen has turned completely white, there are three normal causes: the screen is defective, the video cable is not connected correctly, or the graphics card on the motherboard of the computer is faulty. You will need to troubleshoot these possibilities to determine which problem you have. If you are not experienced in working on computer equipment, you should not attempt to disassemble your LCD screen because you could easily damage it. Seek professional assistance unless you have experience working on computer hardware.

Disconnect the white LCD screen from the computer by unscrewing the blue monitor cable. Connect the working LCD screen to your computer by attaching its blue monitor cable to the same slot. If your computer display does not show on the functioning LCD screen, try rebooting your computer. If it still does not display, the problem is with your computer's graphic card on the motherboard. Seek professional repair assistance. If your computer display shows normally on the working LCD screen, proceed to Step 2. Unplug the LCD monitor with the white screen. Disassemble the rear panel of the monitor with the small screwdriver. Carefully separate the screws into piles so that you can keep track of how to reassemble the monitor. Locate the internal video cable, a gray cable with a plug on the end that connects to the main components of the screen. See Below for the References section for photos of the video cable for assistance. http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2008/04/13/laptop-lcd-screen-turned-white/ Unplug the cable, checking for any debris or blockage. Reconnect the cable firmly. Reassemble the LCD screen. Plug it in and connect it to your computer. If the screen is still white, you have a defective LCD screen. You will need to replace it or take it to a professional repair service for assistance. Hope this helps.

The screen is blue and will not do anything. I can get into task mananger by doing ctrl*alt*delete but that's it. I have tried shutting it down and restarting but nothing changes.


Use a spare monitor and hook it to the computer, if the same blue screen comes up, the problem is in the computer, from your description the problem is the hard drive. If the spare monitor shows a normal image, then the Dell monitor is suspect. From my experience my money is on your hard drive as the problem and may need replacement.

DELL E153FPf doesn't show the image


OSD Warning Messages A warning message may appear on the screen indicating that the monitor is out of sync range.
Cannot Display This Video Mode
This means that the monitor cannot synchronize with the signal that it is receiving from the computer. Either the signal is too high or too low for the monitor to use. See Specifications for the Horizontal and Vertical frequency ranges addressable by this monitor. Recommended mode is 1024x768 @ 60Hz.
Occasionally, no warning message appears, but the screen is blank. This could also indicate that the monitor is not synchronizing with the computer or the monitor is in a power save mode.
