Dell E173FP: Screen Washes out

Ok, this is kind of tricky to describe... here goes.

The monitor was working fine then all the sudden when I turned it back on the screen had green bars running vertically on the screen (kind of looked like bars on a window). Then in a span of 15 to 30 seconds the screen gets really fuzzy and progressively washes out to a white color. It is like the color is going away one pixel at a time. When I turn it off and back on it refocuses itself to a quasi-clear state and then does the same thing again. At times there was a rainbowish ring in the upper left quadrant of the screen.

Thats the best I can do any assistance would be awesome!

Thanks, Kyle

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

Describe your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor Problem The monitor seems to be turning itself repeatedly on and off. No picture is ever seen, the screen stays black with a slight flicker.

Monitor keeps turning off but power says it's still on


You are OK with the power cord, more likely to be failure in the power supply/Inverter board, look for bad fuse and shorterd transistors, see Dell pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Transistors should be checked out off circuits.

Was watching a movie on my computer last night and all the sudden the screen started turning off and on with no picture when it was on. Has the monitor gone bad or is it a video card issue?


The simple way to check if this is a Monitor issue or not, you can unplug the monitor from the Computer and connect it only to the power outlet. If it gives you a "No signal" screen or goes through any sort of other Self test, Your monitor is fine. You can also check if the power led is blinking Amber or Green. A blinking Amber LED while the monitor is only connected to the Wall outlet indicates the monitor is faulty.
