Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Short in wiring

I purchased this monitor a few years ago and had a problem with a short in the power cord where it attaches immediately. I should have sent it back to dell, but got it to work and never moved the monitor, so it stayed put. My son recently moved it about an inch out and now I can't get it to work at all. It has snapping sounds at the cord junction and won't even flash on.

Look for bad solder joints, common problem due to poor design (the AC inlet is held in place by three solder joints, it should have been screw-mounted to the chassis)

Kenmore Progressive Vacuum electrical issue. My


It could be the wires or switch in the hose and/or the connection between the hose and the vacuum. It could be the power cord or a loose or bad wire inside the canister. It could be the carbon brushes in the motor are worn out. To find a short or electrical problem you need to know how to trace the power flow from the plug and cord all the way to the motor. You can test the wiring in the hose with an electrical tester to see if there is a problem with it before you purchase a new one.

About a week ago my Dell 2007WFPb LCD monitor (purchased in 2007) flickered on and off PIP mode, and would not stay on one setting for PIP for longer than 2 seconds. It was not fixed and now the power...


Not the power cord problem at this point, more likely to have failed Power supply or Inverter board.
http://lcdrepair.us/2007fpw-power.html
http://lcdrepair.us/2007fp-inverter.html

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Pole chainsaw not working


No power could be a broken wire in the power cord, usually near the plug end. It could also be the switch, or the motor brushes. More rare is a broken wire in the motor or the saw case. Hope this helps!

My monitor LM17sb develops red dots in the grey areas which come and goes. Can I fix this


It sounds to me like there could be a short-circuit developing in the panel, or the wire that connects the monitor cable to the inner panel, since it comes and goes. I hope that monitor is under warranty. If not, you can either accept that the monitor will occasionally short, or you can replace it. Fortunately, you can get 17 inch lcd monitors for about 80 bucks, rather than 150 just a few years ago. Currently, there is no way to fix a broken or shorting monitor without replacing it or having it repaired.

hELLO THERE:
You shouldnt have to hook both of them up.
turn off the computer and monitor unplug. the power cord to the power supply. leave the monitor hooked to the computer
remove the side panel on the left side of the computer.
look and find the wiring harness from the powersupply to the motherboard and remove it now press the power button on the computer for 1 minute this releasess any (esd) or Electronic Static Discharge. that may have built up over time.
wait for 3 minutes
during this time this will be a good time to blow out any dirt or debris that may be in the inside of the computere
now reinstall the wire harness back to the motherboard and connect everything back up and turn on the computer and then the monitor and see what happnes you should be ok after this ok?

Unit trips circuit breaker when plugged in


On AC current it really makes no difference to the operation of the unit which terminal the wires are connected to as long as the circuit is completed. A reason for the inverted wiring is that there will be a resistance between the hot wire and the control circuit. It makes for a reduced load on the contacts and switches minimizing arching.

Kirby G6 no power


Could be the switch, I would check the cord 1st. It has 2 wires running thru it, one may be open. That power cord goes bad often, if anyone is pulling on the wire rather then the plug, then it would have have stretched and break.
