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?

Latitude B130 screen works great then cuts out to complete black, works with external monitor


Are you sure that the display is not set for external monitor only? Also take bright flashlight and shine on the display. If you can see the images then the problem is with the back light and usually caused by a bad inverter. Some times you can get the back light or inverter bu most times it is easier and cheaper to replace the entire display.

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

Dark screen


If you can hardly see that there is something there your back-light has probably gone out and a new LCD is in order. It is usually cheaper just to get a new PC though. If it is completely black your LCD might be bad. A couple things you can try... if you have an external monitor plug it in to the VGA out and see if your system displays on it. If it does you might have accidentally switched your display mode. On laptops you can usually cycle through the modes by pressing Fn and one of the F keys. Usually it is F4 or F5 there will be a little picture of a monitor on the F key. Hopefully it is not a bad LCD.

Monitor shuts off but green light stays on


I perhaps can. I would think inverter or ccfl's.

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
