Question about Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Dell monitor flashing different colours and buttons won't work!

The monitor when powered will flash from screen to screen displaying nothing but colour! Red to white to green and so on. When the PC is started the monitor works fine. I have found a page on this site with a guy who had the same problem, he says thanks for the fix but I can't find the fix for this issue anywhere. Somewhere it says that the monitor is stuck in the Burn-In mode and to just take it ouf this mode. But how can this be done when the buttons don't work?

This is the page I was looking at. Thanks in advance.

Go into your monitors settings and select "Factory Reset" Then go to "Factory" and you will find the burn in setting. Turn burn in to off. This should fix the problem.

Padlock icon


Many monitors have an on-screen display lock (the padlock icon) that seems to get stuck.
Various suggestions in the links below - the one that seems to work most often is to hold the monitor's menu button down for 15-20 seconds to get the screen menu, then either try unlocking the OSD (On Screen Display) or do a factory reset on the monitor.

Pleasec look through my albums so you will know what to look for.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

LCD monitor no display - flashing power button


hello, my best guess is that the refresh rate is set for a crt monitor. hook your old one back up, if you can. and change it to 60 hertz or 70hertz. go 2 display properties then settings then advanced; then monitor. set the refresh rate as i said and turn off the computer, hook the new one back, and you should be good to go. good luck! and please rate this solution. if you need further assistance, reply

Make sure you set up your laptop to display to a second screen. Depending on your Operating system, go to your display properties and go to the settings tab. Then click on the second monitor and enable it.

Dell monitor problem


Disconnect and reconnect both ends of the video cable (while the computer and monitor are both off). Also disconnect and reconnect the power cable. Is the power cable plugged into the same surge protector as the computer? And also try a different outlet on the surge protector for the monitor.

The screen doesn't display anything and the power button is flashing green


Ok I got the same problem. And this is the way how to examine where the problem is. You have to check that you can see the image on screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons (Power on both cpu and monitor), there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. If you cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
