Question about Dell E171FPb 17" TFT LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor fades and turns blue

I have a E171FPb flat panel from dell. It's about 5 years old. At times it begins fading at the bottom. The fading moves up the screen. Then the screen begins turning solid blue at the bottom right corner. This too moves up the screen. However, if I turn the monitor off and right back on, the fading/blue screen is gone and everything looks great. This lasts about a couple of minutes then the fading starts again. Also, after using the computer for a while the fading just stops.

Any ideas?

This sounds like a transistor issue concerning the ccfl lamps the power transistors are deteriorating and they will eventually go bad you can have them replaced and that should fix the issue. otherwise I would say have the capacitors that feed the ccfl's may be getting old and need replacement as well, its not something the average customer will want to do but if you have a service center that does electronic repair then that would be bst.
Hope this helps

Fist place to check will be the power supply, look for bad caps with bulging tops, check to see if you do have 12vdc feeding the back light inverter circuits, see example of failed monitors (90% are due to bad caps): http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Dell E171FPb monitor turns on, but that's it


Hi Letneper,

Hope this will give you hints. Some monitors have standby mode or screen saver feature and or self test feature when not connected to video input of your PC or CPU. Except this problem did not occur at first use. You can turn this off like other monitors manually at OSD (on-screen display) settings if available. No more no less if it works fine with PC or CPU on then there's nothing to worry.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano
