Question about Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor not receiving data from computer?

When I turn the computer on, the screen brightens for just a moment, then goes completely black. If I press the buttons on the monitor (plus, minus, etc), the monitor flashes a message that it is in Power Save Mode, waiting on the mouse to move, or to press any keyboard key. Moving the mouse and pressing keys does not remedy the situation, the monitor just stays black. Can you help?

If you did not hear any beep from your CPU, then the problem is in the system not the screen.
Try connecting the screen to another computer and try also a working screen of a friend to your computer...
You'll find out that either the screen or the computer...

LCD monitor turns off


I have had the same problem as others seem to have had with the dell flat panel. After leaving the screen on for some time, the monitor brightens for a moment, then goes black, while the green light stays on. When I reboot, it works again for some time, or if I remove the cable for a few minutes and plug it back in (with monitor turned off) it will come back on...only to repeat the black screen. I have changed the power features, screen resolution, downloaded updated drivers from dell, and viewed dells troubleshooting advice on the monitor cd that came with the computer. Nothing directly advises on this problem, but I have read here and in other online message boards the exact same problem. Anyone able to fix this?

You might need to change the screen refresh rate. Go do Control Panel> Display> Setting> Advance, choose 60 Hz. In order to make your Monitor able to display, restart the PC, press F8 on the keyboard frequently upon splashing ( 1 or 2 seconds after PC restarts). Select enable VGA mode by pressing up arrow of the keyboard> press enter. The display should look bigger, then you can start adjusting the screen refresh rate to 60 Hz

Syncmaster 226bw goes black


If you can still faintly see data on your screen, it will be a faulty backlight in the panel most likely.

LCD panels have fluorescent tubes in them that provide the light needed to see the data. If one of these goes faulty, the circuit that drives it will turn off ALL the backlights, giving you a black screen.
Note: a faulty circuit that drives the backlights will often give the same apparent fault.
You will need to take the monitor in for repair.

Monitor


Is there still power to the monitor or is the screen just black? Do you hear any sort of sound when it goes black? Does the time the picture goes out vary or does it happen after say "X" minutes/hours everytime? Do you have any power saving software activated that would cause the monitor blank out? Check display properties? Sounds weird but have you checked for any viruses or spyrus nasties? If its hardware it could be many different things. Let me know what happens. Good Luck Tim
