In a dell e177fpf lcd monitor all the capasitors fuses diodes in power supply and inverter board are ok.but the back lights remains 2 seconds.


Hello...I recently opened up my Dell E173Fpf monitor because the screen went black, yet the power button was green. I thought it was a capacitor problem. But before doing anything I gave the board a thorough inspection, looking for anomalies. I observed a substance, (later identified as silicon) puddled around the power connections. I gently removed the semi rigid stuff and didn't touch the capacitors as I had originally planned. I partially reassembled the monitor for a test run and it worked again. (Being 9 years old, I don't know for how long...) Only thing I can think of is that a spill happened at the factory and over the years it gradually "melted" to puddle around the wires behind the power input. (Weird, but that seems to be what happened.)

My Dell Flat Panel Monitor Model 1901FP goes black after it's on for 3 seconds. The green light stays on. I tried replacing cables. Any Solutions?


Inspect the power supply/inverter board for caps with domed tops first, if you do want to DIY repair down to component level, you can get a replacement board for $30.

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My monitor always closes after a few seconds! I have tried with another monitor and it works! But now I want to fix the problem with my Dell Monitor.


It canbe caps, transistors, cold solder joints, etc. You can try troubleshoot it down to components level or replace the board.

Hello,i have a dell tft screen.After having made all the connections with ups and cpu,the monitor is not geting on..could you please suggest the remedy?


Power light blinking? Try Plugging directly into the wall outlet istead of the UPS?
Otherwise you may have problem in the power/inverter board and need to do component level troubleshooting.

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


You need to check the voltages and components in the power supply/inverter board first. It should have 5vdc for logic and 12~16vdc for the backlight innerter circuits.
There are three version of the boards for this model.

The only suggestion I could make would be to consider opening the monitor up and inspecting the control panel for a stuck button or damaged control. While this is feasible, the real question is whether it is cost effective if repairable. The ever decreasing cost of equipment is making monitor replacement very affordable, even if it is filling our landfills with junk.

You need to open it up and inspect the PCB for bad solder connection or over heated components. BenQ made monitors for Dell, so look at some pictures of failed Dell monitors here to get some ideas what could have gone wrong with your monitors, post back what you see so we can guide you further: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

HOW DO I OPEN THE CASE OFTHE DELL FLAT MONITOR


tonylad, Remove the pedestal by taking out the 4 phillips screws on the back. The back plastic cover will now be able to be pried away from the front bezel along the seam on the bottom of the monitor or sides. You may want to go to YOUTUBE to see how it's done. you need to search under LCD monitor repair or somthing similar. Yes I have seen some there that are about 8 to 12 minutes view time. If you get it apart please be very careful when handling the LCD/FPD . Next you will need to inspect the the large SWITCH-MODE-POWER-SUPPLY board. Look for any swelling of the tops of electrolytic capacitors. If you find any, mark them with a marker. With magnifying glass or a inspection microscope check the bottom of the board for thermal and or vibration FRACTURES surounding the leads of large THROUGH-HOLE components soldered on the board. Also look for any really FROSTY looking solder joints. Well, anyway good luck guy. Get back to me if you find anything out. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol BYE

I would open it and inspect for obvious sings of burnt components (caps) and reconnect all internal cables. It may be just a loose connection or oxidation on the contacts.
