Question about Dell E173FPf 17" TFT LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Heard pop and had burnt smell from DELLE207WFP.

The monitor seems to be working ok but since the pop and burnt smell every time I turn on monitor there is a foul smell. Is that at all harmful to breath in? I can't purchase a new one at this time.

Hello

The pop you heard was probably a capasitor. If i am correct the smell will get more prominet how longer the screen is on.
If it is a capasitor, which i believe it is, it will not be expensive at all to repair. Just take it to an electronic repair shop and let them just put in a new capasitor. The vapours of the smell is not deadly fo the small amounts of time and the concentration you are inhaling, but it gives me headaches.

Please rate this.

Best regards

Electrical burnt smell


If you had a short in the starter motor windings and held the key, you'd get a click and a burning smell. That would be the insulation burning off the electrical windings. There's a 40-amp max fuse in this circuit.

Check ATF fluid level and condition. If its not burnt, smells burt and is pink without signs of foaming fluid is a-ok.
However, if it smells burnt and is a dark pink then the stator portion of the torque converter has failed and is not letting the converters' impellar and turbine produce the torque your demanding it to do.
Basically its time for a rebuild.

Last night I heard a loud pop sound come from my computer and then it shut down. I tried to start up the computer but it didn't turn on. None of the fans turned on either so I concluded something is wrong...


Yes, and the power supply needs replacing.
4 screws hold the power supply to the cabinet or case these are usually located outside visible at the fan vents at the four corners.

Heard a loud pop...saw a bright flash...burnt smelled and dryer stopped working. Circuit breaker will not re-set.


You may have a wire that has come loose of it's restraints and is rubbing on the drum as it turns. This would cause the wire's insulation to wear off, and if it's an electric dryer, you're dealing with 220volt wiring. The spark and burning smell is similar to arc welding.
You'll need to open the dryer up and find the damaged wire and reinsulate it with electrical tape or heat-shrink wrap.
It should be easily visible ...look for the burnt,blackened marks..

I was playing a game (PS3) and I heard a slight "pop" from the tv


User can't really fix this at all. Even a regular TV shop would have problem replacing individual components. What you can try to do is maybe order the board that has the burnt components, and raplace it yourself.

This may be an easy problem to fix. If you heard a pop sound, it's possibly a burnt cap on the powersupply. Check caps C521, C522, C517 or any burnt caps on the RA-3 chassis. Obviously be careful when checking.
