The Capacitors on the power board are usually the reason for failure of an LCD. If you open the HP VS17 ( I can provide an exhaustive step by step If I have to) remove the five screws for the power board ( larger of the two boards) and look for an area where there are 4 caps (see pic). Look for exploded, popped up, bulging, or leaking caps and replace with the same or slightly higher tolerances. The one I replaced last night were (2x )1000uf25-50volt and (2x) 470uf25-50volt. Check the rest of the board for similar issues and replace as needed.

To remove the case of a VS17e you must first remove the base/stand. There are 3 screws to remove, in back of the LCD holding the base/stand. Two are visible and one is,only, available once you remove the top silver plastic cover on the stand.
Then you can pry apart the front silver plastic bezel. Another tip is to remove an aluminum cover on the top side of the metal LCD case to disconnect the data cable to the LCD screen.
Careful with the speaker wires once you decide to assemble back together.

The front and back covers snap together. remove the base and any other screws visible from the back, then pry the front and back apart with a flat blade screwdriver.

With regards to solution #2. I have removed the round metal baseplate and the top plastic cover on the stand. The front of the display was pried open. It was clear that the tilting mechanism was held to the metal frame which houses the electronics. So, back to the upright which comprises 2 of the 4 discrete sections making up the stand. The 7 cm long section of the roughly rectangular-in-cross-section, silver plastic between the 2 cm long rounded piece actually housing the tilting mech. and the formerly attached circular base must be removed next. It is held by 5 plastic tabs as I see it. Did you mean that these must be pried apart? I don't see any other way

    Answered my own question. In detail, here is the procedure:

    1) Remove metal bottom from base - 8 screws, a few under the rubber.



    2) Squeeze the now visible plastic tabs together to remove the round plastic from the upright.



    3) Inside the upright, at the end nearest the titl mech. you will see 5 plastic tabs. These do not allow the upright to be removed, however. Their purpose is to hold the rounded plastic cover located between the upright and the panel to be removed. start on 1 long side, apply a steady gentle pull on the rounded piece and pry the two tabs along that side. As you free up a couple tabs, the others become easier to separate.



    4) Once the small plactic cover is removed, you can access the 3rd screw holding the base to the panel.

I also have an HP VS17e with a blinking power indicator, won't power up. I managed to remove the exterior plastic housing and the small aluminum cover to get access to the ribbon cable, but I'm baffled by the connector. I have experience with several types of miniature ribbon cables, but this particular one has me stumped. How do I disengage it without damage?

We managed to remove the base and screws.
How do you open the case without damaging it?

We think there is more dust in the monitor, after using the vacuumcleaner and hitting on it the monitor it works again, even the blue powerlight came back on.

Thank You

Greetings.

Flickering switch light, blank screen


Hi, First of all it is not advisable to open up monitors without proper tools as they contain hazardous elements. Dell monitors however do have a 3 year SEPARATE warranty. Check on the back of the monitor and look for the monitor serial number. is should start with CN-xxxxx-,, or JP-XXXXX-. give that to a dell tech and they should be able to replace that.
