This is normal, typically you must press the power button (on the monitor) to turn it off.

Have a dell e177fp monitor. When I power on it only displays for 3 seconds and shuts off. Green power light remains on.


You probably have failure in the inverter circuits due to shorted transistors, bad solder joints, bad caps. Please see my pictures here so you will know what to look for inside.

Monitor does not want to wake up. Pressing the yellow rest switch the button goes green for less that 3 seconds, then goes yellow.


try unplugging your computer and your monitor for about a minute and turn back on. Then see if it works, Good Luck ;)

Dell E177FP monitor won't turn off in power saving mode


I had the same problem and I went to the first button on the monitor to the left(main menu) then with the button to the right (-) I scrolled down to factory reset. I also did the osd setting and I'm not sure what fixed it, but I havn't had the problem sence.

Monitor will not turn off


The power switch on an LCD monitor is only a power saver, it does not switch it off completely. There is no reason why you cannot use the mains switch to turn the monitor on and off - assuming that it was on in the first place!

Most LCD monitors have a 3 year warrantly - at least they do in the UK. Why not contact Dell and get them to replace it for you. You should do this before the 3 years are up.

Monitor won't turn on without help.


Do you have a second monitor or can you borrow one to check if the fault lies with the monitor or the PC?

If the monitor is at fault then there is not much you can do yourself. I suggest you contact Dell and get them to replace it under warranty. Most LCD monitors have a 3 year warrantly, at least they do in the UK.
