Question about Dell E173FPb 17" TFT LCD Monitor
The picture comes on for 15 seconds and it goes off till I swith on again or unplug the VGA and plug in again, it does the same. Time for staying on becomes less as I continue the exercise
It sounds like a thermal problem ie its heat related. As the unit warms up the problem gets worse and worse.
The most common problem is a bad solder joint in the electronics circuit which drives your screen. When current flows thru the solder joint it heats up and expands, making the poor solder connection even worse. ie the solder gap gets bigger as it expands.
An experienced repairer will use something like an pressurized can of freon (or a similar product) which is used to spray on suspect solder joints until the problem disappears. That soldered joint is then re-done.
NOTE: working on live equipment should be left to an expert. If you aren't trained, don't do it!
With the cheap price of monitors these days it may be cheaper to buy another. Compare the repair price to your loss of enjoyment or down time of your system.
If the unit is still under warranty, call the manufacturer (is it a Dell unit?)
