Hello,

The issue you have is caused by a bad power supply. If you change the following capacitors on the power board you should be back running again. C925 and C924 are 470uf 16v and C922 and C923 are 1000uf 16v be sure to use high temp capacitors not just standard that you would find at Radio Shack, if you do they will blow again with in a month or two. We have a parts kit available and I will have picture posted on our web site at :

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Dell e173fpc Display Issue


Check if the cable connected to your monitor and video card is fix and secure.. Check also if the video card is properly seated in the motherboard.... Try to check using other computer if the video card is working..

If the test is all ok.. then the last option will be to check the backlight inverter of your monitor....To do this, you need to bring the monitor to a credible technician to have it replace..



much appreciated if you could rate this help..thanks..

My dell E173FPC monitor screen is black and doesnot show for more than 2 seconds although the green power button is on.


Hello,

You have a unit with a failure in the backlight power supply. This is a common problem with LCD monitors after 2-3 years of use. Here is a link to an article we have posted that shows what needs to be done to repair the unit along with full parts list: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/dell-e172fpc-e173fpc-repair/ If you can solder then you can do the repair yourself.

Wont display anything, green light on power button keeps flashing


Hello,

The flashing light on the Dell E173 series indicates a failure in the power supply board. This series has several versions on the board so you will need to know the exact model, it is listed on the label at the bottom of the back cover. The versions are E173FPc, E173FPb and E173FPf. We have repair instructions posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/monitor-repair/dell-monitor-repair/ that cover each version on the unit. The repairs will require replacing a few pars that will need to be soldered.

Picture goes black at random intervals


There are 4 c5707/5706 in the inverter transformer driving circuits, the cause of the problem was due to poor solder connection in the bias circuits of the transistors. Make sure to check that after you install the new transistors otherwise you will blowthem up. Common problem with this model. When the circuit drwas too much power from the power supply, it will shut itself off to ptotect itself.

No power to Dell E173FPc monitor; power light doesn't come on


It sounds like you are not getting any power. I would try another power cord to see if it makes a difference.

LCD Monitor Blank/Non-Responsive - Dell E173FPC


Next thing I would check is the VGA cable between PC and monitor.

Make sure is in at both ends and if possible try another one.

Do the Dell Menus come up with no VGA cable plugged in? Is the light amber? Flashing or static?

Dell E173FPc monitor. Screen is black, power button color cycles


Hi,
First, verify the monitor is functional.
Monitor STFC (Self Test Feature Check)
Turn off the monitor
Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket to remove any
surge protectors or APCs from the troubleshooting equation
Unplug the monitor video cable from the back of the computer
Turn on the monitor
The floating dialog box should appear on screen against a black background.
If the issue appears during the STFC, the monitor is defective.
What are the results please?
