Hello, I have a Philips 170 B monitor and I am having problems with it. Even after my computer is switched on- I see nothing on the screen - it's blank- but the monitor's power light is on. I've tried...


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like your moitor is burned out, I would take the monitor to a Staples, Radio shack and have it tested. Monitors are just like a light bulb and do go bad or burn out.

Phillips 170B volume adjustment bar automatically pops up


Usually for the volume bar to just pop up something would have pressed the volume button. It is possible that the volume button has gotten a malfuntion on it and this makes it to pop-up all the time. Try getting underneath the volume button cleaned. But preferably this should be done by an expert.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Monitor just suddenly went off and won't come back on. What could be the problem?


Failed DC filter caps, and check the main AC fuse, the power supply should be putting out 5vdc and 18vdc the minute it is plugged into the wall outlet, check for that without turning on the monitor.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking, or have high ESR) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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 ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Green light on - no picture


I would take the PC nad the monitor to the repair shop and have them find out if the PC is out back together correctly by trying with another monitor, if it works with another monitor, then you will have to take apart the monitor to inspect the inside for bad components.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:

Monitor turns off occasionally and you have to press the menu button to turn it back on


Check the DC filter caps in the power supply section.

External monitor hooked to laptop shuts off after a few minutes


Does it do the same when it is hooked up to PC as main monitor? Just to be sure before starting taking it apart. Do other monitors give the same result when it is hooked up to this laptop?

No sound from headset plugged into monitor


From the manual I found, this model does NOT support ANY audio connections.

170B Product Features
- 17" color LCD monitor with excellent display performance.
- Dual input-accepts both DVI Digital and VGA Analog input.
- Advanced AUTO adjustment automatically optimizes picture quality.
- Wide viewing angle technology.
- 7.1 (181mm) small footpring with full detachable cables.
- USB Bay for upgrade to USB Hub.
- Optional protective cover to prevent LCD panel damage.
- Standard VESA mounting holes and optional tilt/swivel Wall Mount Kit.

But if yours does have these ports, I would suggest they are not for a headset, but for connection to the _PC_. I would suggest your model monitor has built in speakers, and the green port is the INPUT from the PC Speaker output. The pink goes back to the PC from the MIC which is built into the screen.

Phillips 170b monitor not working


Exactly the same problem here. Phillips 170B Monitor about two years old. Lights up for no more than 2 seconds then goes blank. Switch on/off and exactly the same thing. I suspect than the screen goes really dim rather than switching off because sometimes I can see the screen image very faintly.
