E1705 Monitor is black also, but can see this screen fine on tv

My e1705 monitor went out today, I can see this screen fine with S-video cable to my TV as I'm using it to enter this. The screen of the laptop actually comes on for a brief second when bouncing back and forth with the Fn and F8 key, but will not remain. on. I also notice that my Wi Fi light is on, have never paid any attention to that before. Any suggestions for a fix is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

I have a dell e1705,and it has a white screen what is wrong?


You could have a loose video cable connection that attaches to the motherboard or you may have a faulty on-board video.
Try connecting an external monitor to your Dell, power up the external monitor fist and then boot up the Dell laptop. The video will automatically divert to the external monitor if the on-board video is OK.
This means the video cable/connector needs re-seating or the video cable is faulty.

First thing I would try will beusing this monitor with another PC using the same the same setup to see if it works OK. We need to narrow down the cause of the problem first since you have three parts that can be bad; Monitor, DVI cable, PC Video card/PC. It is just a process of elimination to locate the problem.

It means that your monitor is not getting a signal from your PC. Your monitor is fine though. You will need to plug the video cable from your monitor into the onboard video if you are using a graphics card. If you are not using a graphics card then you will probebly need to get a PC technition to diagnose the problem with your motherboard.

A couple of things to check. First make sure that all the connections are in place. That is, the one at the PC and the one on the back of the monitor. Second - Make sure that the video card is seated correctly in the PC. Third - Replace the monitor cable. Fourth - Check with another monitor, if possible.

Power saver problems


Did it come out of power-save mode when you connected it to the other computer?

Does your laptop have a "toggle":
* video-output only to internal LCD screen
* video-output only to external monitor
* video-output to both displays
?

If so, toggle the setting to "external" or to "both".

Dell Inspiron E1705 does not show any picture


First of all, check that the laptop is set to output video to the LCD. There should be a function key which will determine whether it is outputting video to the built-in LCD, the external monitor, or both. That should be holding down your "FN" key and hitting "F8." If it is on CRT ONLY, it should switch within 1-2 keypresses.

Secondly, take a good bright flashlight and shine it directly at the LCD panel from about 1-2 inches away. If you can actually see the graphics on the screen faintly in the background, your backlight is not turning on. The backlight is literally a bulb which lights up the screen, and they can burn out. It is repairable, and shouldn't cost more than $150.00 from a reputable repair shop.
