Question about Dell E171FPb 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Colored vertical lines on monitor

Storm last night. Woke up this morning and E171FPb Dell monitor had multi-colored (green, white, black) vertical lines on it. Old tube monitor works fine on computer. Hooked it up to laptop an no screen image would display, just the lines. This happened once before and hooking the monitor to the laptop seem to reset it and it worked fine until last night. Any thoughts?

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.

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.

VERTICAL COLORED LINES ON MONITOR


Your panels are dying.
Well more to the point the driver tabs that run the panel are dying and are not going to be cheap to repair for either case.

For the stand alone LCD, it is cheaper to get another one.
For the laptop, find a laptop on Ebay or similar with a dead motherboard and swap out the screens, also gives you spare parts for the laptop. If you goto a repair shop and get a screen it will cost you as much as a new laptop.
