    Thank you, jeremiah51!  


    I had the same problem and two capacitors from RadioShack fixed it up good as new.  I'm very grateful for your sage advice.


    Keep on diving!

E173FPf Mfg December 2004
This E173FPF has changed much inside from the November 2003 E172fpb which had the famous 4 identical transistors 5707 that would tend to fail in pairs. If your newer E173FPF displays a green power light and fails to display a picture try replacing the 220uf25v capacitors at C6 and C26. Test them with a volt ohm meter and they will test Ok, replace them anyway. Radio Shack did not have the 25v so I used the 35v, display works fine now. There is an E173FPF repair kit with directions available on Ebay if you don't have a parts store in your area and would prefer delivery.

i'm not an expert at anything...x'cept maybe dumpster diving. God Bless

In a dell e177fpf lcd monitor all the capasitors fuses diodes in power supply and inverter board are ok.but the back lights remains 2 seconds.


Hello...I recently opened up my Dell E173Fpf monitor because the screen went black, yet the power button was green. I thought it was a capacitor problem. But before doing anything I gave the board a thorough inspection, looking for anomalies. I observed a substance, (later identified as silicon) puddled around the power connections. I gently removed the semi rigid stuff and didn't touch the capacitors as I had originally planned. I partially reassembled the monitor for a test run and it worked again. (Being 9 years old, I don't know for how long...) Only thing I can think of is that a spill happened at the factory and over the years it gradually "melted" to puddle around the wires behind the power input. (Weird, but that seems to be what happened.)

I have a Dell e173pfb monitor. i push the power button and green light comes on screen comes on for a second with no problem then the backlight goes off. I can still see an image with a flashlight though....


You need a new backlight inverter board. If you dissasemble the monitor you will see a circuit board with 4 2-wire connectors connected to it. This is the board you need to replace. Typically they run from $15 to $40. Usually just easier to replace the monitor. Another idea is to reduce brightness levels on the monitor in the menu while looking at it with your flashlight. Then power off then power on the monitor and it might stay on longer.

My dell monitor turns on for 2 seconds then goes black and the green light blinks orange


I assume that you already try this monitor on another PC to verify that the problem is in the monitor, in this case you need to open it up and inspect the fuse, transitors, solder connections on the power/inverter board, see failed Dell monitors here for guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further.

Dead samsung 172n power light flickers


Have you checked the power output from the power board? Is it constant and steady? Try reflowing all the joints if you haven't already. Especially transformer and coil joints. Maybe a bad logic board? Do you have spares to try? Does it do this with everything disconnected from the pwr board (switch, logic, inverter)?

NO POWER ON INDICATOR LIGHT AND NO Screen Raster on Monitor


Hi,

Initially, pls check D854 on the Power Supply/Logic board. It is a dual diode. If you would prefer board replacement rather than component level repair, this might be of help. This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

This is of course in addition to checking the usual, power cord, fuse, outlet etc.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Dell e173fpf lcd monitor is grey


Sounds like the AD section of the board may be junk. I did the same thing - bought the board from lcdrepair.com.

I submitted an RMA request to get a replacement. The process was difficult due to the pdf form they make you fill out. Lots of errors and no good way to submit it, since it wants to use outlook, but the pdf isn't configured properly to do so. Seems fishy, but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt for now. We'll see.
