Question about Dell E171FPb 17" TFT LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Inspiron 8500 laptop monitor; vertical lines & color bursts

When computer is first turned on vertical lines appear in different shapes either linear or zig-zag columns, then the screen will blotch out into different colors & black & white moving left to right across the screen. Eventually the screen either blanks out completely in black or different shades or sometimes faults to blue screen when in then dumps its physical memory. These are intermittent problems that have progressively gotten worse to the point that it now won't come up at all so the reguslar Windows desktop is visible. Previously this probelm was intermittent and sometimes the computer would clear itself and work properly even though in start-up the above symptoms were displayed for a couple of minutes until they cleared. It seemed to be heat related because it would work fine for an hour or two then fail. Now it's failing imemdiately. HELP!

It sounds to me like you are having a problem with the video card on the motherboard, I am not familiar with this model but some you can remove the video card and upgrade, some you can not.if you can upgrade you can try this
if you cannot remove the video card then a new motherboard will be required to fix this computer.
you can look on ebay for a replacement at a reasonable price or talk to your local computer service center.
hope this helps.

Colored vertical lines on my monitor


Depending on the age of the monitor, it most likely will be Capacitors that are leaking. I have repaired many different brands of monitors and have seen problems very similar to yours. 99% of the repairs I do are capacitor Issues. It's well worth replacing them IF the screen is still in very good shape as far as brightness and contrast. most repair kits usually cost between 12 and 20 dollars.
Hope this helps!

MONITOR HD2200. I TURN IT ON AND THE SCREEN GOES WHITE THEN A FEW VERTICAL COLOR LINES APPEARS AND AFTER A FEW SECONDS IT GOES BLACK.


Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER

Hope this will help out in solving the problem....

Monitor: Compaq TFT5015 Displays vertical lines


Check that the signal cable from the computer is firmly connected and that there are no bent pins in either end. If the trouble continues, the problem is in the monitor itself. Given the low replacement cost, it's uneconomical to try repairing these.
