Dell E171FPb 17" TFT LCD Flat Panel Monitor Problem

Hi, this monitor suddenly won't work after 4.5 years. The screen has millions of tiny vertical rainbow stripes when turn it on. I can't even see Windows boot up on screen. I switched to another computer and has the same problem. I put a good monitor to this computer and it works fine. This tell me the computer is good, but monitor is bad. Does anyone know what the problem is, how to fix it, and how much the part will cost me? Thanks in advance!

Now the only thing left are the LCD screen and a small circuit board that attaches to LCD screen. Can anyone tell me where I can get these parts and will other brand and/or model of 17" LCD screen will fit this model or not?

Colored vertical lines on monitor


Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

Dell e171fpb lcd monitor


The driver tabs between the LCD panel and it's controller board have failed.
These are very fragile and not repairable for anything in the cost effective range.
Best option is to either find a new panel to replace it, or get a new monitor.
