    i just installed a new power supply to my pc and i too have the 17' inch Dell flat screen monitor and it is telling me that it is entering power safe mode. How do I get out of it?

    Every once in a while when I turn on my pc the monitor's Led light goes from green to amber. when I press the buttons on the flatscreen it tells me it is in "Powersave Mode" and to just move the mouse or hit any key or hit the PC's power button? I do this but to no avail. Please help it is very frustrating!!!

E172FP (Black) 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor: Dell monitor problem, its the power save mode agai...

First, try it on another PC, check or try another VGA cable, if it still does not work then you need to open it up. Dell monitors are known to have bad solder connections, bad caps. See my photo albums of failed Dell monitors to get some idea what to look for.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My monitor keeps going into power save mode


Its not power saver mode, when the display goes black and the power light starts flashing that is a good indication that the power supply is about to die. The Dell E172 monitors are noted for this problem. We have step by step repair guides posted on our web site at: Click on the monitor repair link. The Dell E172 series actually has several sub models, check your specific model, the sticker on the back will have either E172FPb, E172FPc, E172FPf. We have guides for all 3 versions posted.

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

Dell 1704 FPTt monitor goes black after about 20 min

Go to Start, Control Panel, Power Options and change your monitor setting to never turn off. If you do leave your monitor on all the time then you should set up a screen saver.
