Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Dell 17inch LCD Display - Blank

Hi there, Happily using system and suddenly display just fades out quickly to complete black, then starts pulsing every 3 seconds - a very quick slight white flash over screen accompanied by green flashing on/off button on front of display - every 3 seconds. Cannot turn off - pulsing just keeps going until pulling the plug. Have tried monitor on different computer, same problem. No picture, just pulsing. Any suggestions? Thanks. Monitor is not quite 2 years old.

Re: Dell 17inch LCD Display - Blank

Hi, My name is Todd and I'm a customer advocate at Dell's corporate headquarters. My team helps customers via blogs, forums, and other tech sites online. You said the monitor is 2 years old. Do you have the original order number still? Depending on how you purchased the monitor it may have up to a 3 year manufacturer warranty and I may be able to replace it if it is within that warranty period. Please email me at if you can locate the order number and I'll be glad to see if its still under the manufacturer warranty. Include my first name (Todd) in the subject line of the email so it can quickly be routed through to me, and include the order or customer number if you have it. Thank you, Todd Customer Advocate Dell, Inc.

Dell 17inch flat screen monitor will not remain on, the screen go

If your Dell monitor still under into warranty, better to call Dell technical support and have them replace your monitor coz there is no way you can fix on it.

If the monitor is beyond with the warranty already, better to but a new one than taking it repair that will cost you much.

Thank you.

Most probably failure in the LCD controller IC in the lcd controller board. that no signal was sent out to the lcd driver IC thus you could only see white display. A replacement of LCD panel is the best solution. best regards

The panel is replaceable, but cost is around $150.00

You might want to check your paperwork on the Display warranty. Also, maybe search the internet and see if there was any recall on that model.

Maybe it's time to get a new system and sale the old one for parts to recover some of the cost.
