Question about Dell E177FP LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor will not turn on

I just bought a Dell Dimension E520 system, I've had it for just over 6 months, and the monitor just quit working. It won't turn on, the green power light doesn't come on or anything. I had to hook up another monitor just to shut down my computer. This thing is barely 6 months old, and should not just shoot craps like this. I haven't made any changes with new graphic cards or anything like that, it just stopped powering on. I checked cable connections, and I used the same cables to hook up the other monitor, and it works fine, but it's not a flat panel, and it takes up too much room on my desk, which is the reason I went to a flat panel in the first place.

I have a Dell E173FP 17 inch Flat Panel LCD Monitor. About two weeks ago after having turned it off at night (leaving the PC on) then turning the monitor back on in the morning it would light up to half of...

The monitor can be repaired - by replacing one or both the fluorescent tube and inverter. You can have the work done for you - or you can attempt it yourself. Lamp prices vary based on size - but most hover in the $10 range. Inverters can vary in price too - but run more than lamps for the most part. There are numerous suppliers for these parts such as this and instructions about how to do it such as this.

I hope this helps! Please rate my reply - thanks!

I have an older Dell Dimension 2400 series. I have tried running the monitor with it. I will get it up and running only after numerous restarts. Most of the time when I start up my system the monitor...

If it's an older 2400 series and you suspect it doesn't have a good signal going to it, I would try the monitor on a different tower to see if it's the monitor. If it isn't, I would recommend that you try to disable and change the VGA card in the Dell, if possible to a known good VGA card.

Also, try wiggling the connections at the monitor and graphics card, if this applies.

Or else, it might be a lost cause for that tower.

Good luck on getting the Princeton monitor working with your Dell Dimension 2400 series.

Dell SE198WFP 19" LCD won't come out of standby

I went into the BIOS (with F2 during restart) and changed a value -- IIRC it was called something like "power management scheme" -- from the default S3 to the other choice, S1. Now the old Dell XP Dimension 2350 will go into and out of Standby correctly and the new SE198WFP 19" LCD will too.

Resolution wont resize properly

Try resetting your monitor to the factory settings. If that doesnt work I suggest you unistall your monitor in device manager Only if you have the monitor cd. If you do not have a cd to your monitor you can always download on the internet. These two options should help you but if they dont go ahead and come back and repost your question.
