Why won't my Dell E171FPb monitor work? When I turn my computer on the monitor flashes the first screen, the "DV051...Bios Revision A01" screen, then goes black. I'm using a Dell Dimension E310 that's...


Check the power supply DC filter caps, burnt parts, cold solder joints, etc.
If you are going to DIY repair, please read below and look at my album of failed Dell monitors to get some ideas.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, 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.

My dell e171fpb monitor lost its clarity. now all it shows are verticle and horizontal lines in different colors. Can it be fixed for less than a new lcd?


A new lcd will cost you about 100 bucks. You can go cheaper by replacing the monitor. Many pc outlets sell grade a lcd monitors for about 80 bucks.

Padlock appears on screen


The padlock is an indication that the On Screen Display is locked. You can also lock or unlock the OSD by pushing the Menu button for over 15 seconds.

POWERSAVE


I have A "Dell" E152FPc, and I have found an open transistor (Q201) on the Power Supply Board. My monitor comes on nice and bright for approximately 2 seconds, then goes dark; the power LED is steady. The voltage to the PWM IC is waky.
Before you try any hardware troubleshooting go to your control panel and turn off any power management options.

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.

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
