Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor Went Black

The monitor had a few blinks of a thin, horizontal line, then it would blink off and blink on. After a few times, it finally wouldn't come back on at all. We did get a blue screen that said something about checking drivers, super drives..., but it didn't come back on before I could write everything down.
Help.
Also the letter codes in the back on the computer say everything is operating fine. Could it just be the monitor went out?
Another strange thing, when I unplug the monitor from back of the computer the power light on the monitor goes green and appears to work by showing a color spectrum box.
Thank you in advance.

It sounds like the monitor might be going bad. I would try hooking up another computer to it. If it works with another computer, then I would say the Video card might be going bad.

I have a Panasonic TC-P50G10 television that now has numerous small horizontal black lines. Can you advise?


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

White horizental lines across the LCD Monitor.


This is a high voltage horizontal output problem. Could just be a loose connection or an intermitant component failure. If you can get into it, check for any loose connections. Sometimes this can also be caused by a large accumulation of dust. Make sure you unplug it before opening it up.

My Dell E2209WC have black horizontal bands/lines all over the screen.


if the lines are like blinking and appearing and vanishing, then try adjusting the cable attached to your monitor or buy a new cable that is attached between monitor and system unit.

Prob-put computer in hibernate mode other evening, without turning it off. when i woke up, screen had diagonal lines going across it. i rebooted, well manually restarted, since comp would not respond.

Monitor went black


Same with mine a couple days ago. I've been told the contacts have oxidized and need to be cleaned. It was going to cost about $80 to fix and no guarantee how long it would last so I just bought a new monitor.
