Question about IBM ThinkVision L170 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor is dead (black)

Monitor is dead, power light stays on all the time even when you hit the power button on the monitor. Screen is black with no sound but as I said green power light is on all the time even when you try and shut the monitor off.The only way to get the green power light off is to unplug it.

My Dell monitor screen goes black after I move my mouse around to get on my computer. The screen goes black and I have to hit the button on the screen (that lights up the screen) about 18 times until it finally stays lite. I don't get it, if there is a problem with the light why does it stay on after hitting the light button several times?

Dell E171FP Monitor goes black after 2 secs


Hi, I don't think the problem is with your monitor. Your monitor sounds like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The monitor is supposed to turn off if there's no cable attached, which means there's no signal input. When the screen goes black, does the power light stay on and turn orange? or does it go off as well? I would recommend that you lower your screen resolution to 1280x1024 or lower in the Display Properties window, then remove your primary monitor, and connect the monitor to your desktop computer. You should see it light up when connected. The monitor auto-senses when there's a computer attached to the cable and when there's a signal. If it doesn't see a signal, it goes black to save power.

Screen going black, green LED staying on


Check to see if the image is Dimmed. Chances are the power supply on the FPD is either dead or not supplying power to the back lights.
Your problem is the power supply or the inverter on your board, you can replace it and it will be fixed.
Easy Fix REALLY EASY FIX
(inverter is what supplies power to your backlights. A lot of the times the reason a monitor goes black and the green power button is on, is because the backlights shut off. in most designs of the 1730 the inverter is embedded on the power supply. That is most often the case on this problem. Power supply/Inverter=Replace it and you will have a spanking new looking nice monitor working again. :)

Hit the keyboard keys. It is better to just turn sleep and hibernate off and just use a screen saver or tun it off.

Monitor blinks on then turns off after computer boots up


It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems. When the image "goes off" shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. Depending on the monitor this is usually and economically repairable problem.
