Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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.

Flapjack87, If possible, visit YOUTUBE for video clips of Dell lcd monitor repair, to help you decide if you will do the work, or contract out via warranty or dell exchange service, to get your system up and running again. Your monitor's "problem" not new and occurs quite often!!! Some can be DIY refurbished for less than $6 in parts alone. Just do some reading and follow all the "links" you will find in my and other fixya ccfl back-lit lcd monitor tech's profiles. Just do some reading first!! You will be amazed at ALL the stuff you will find out about why these things are failing prematurely, and how owners are DIY fixing them so they will work for another 2 to 4 years or more!! Come back and do a comment after you research all your options and do additional comment and rate this response on fixya so others who read it will find the help they need. Good luck with repair. Remember this! Your e176fp is no different than any other CCFL back-lit lcd monitor in it's basic design and operation than ANY other brand on the market!!! Only when they start using "white light LED arrays" for backlighting will the technology change. I'm 12fixlouie. Try the profiles of "budmrtn" , "buddymc" , "louie12fix" (old) , "12fixlouie" (later) for more info to read. Bye for now.

My computer is booting then after short time it return to standby mode then the fan of processor rotate at very high speed and signal is remove from monitor


Seems like the PC has Hibernation mode turned on. After 1 hour windows will put the PC and hardrives to sleep to conserve power. If you want to disable it, here how:
  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Power Options icon.
  3. Within the Power Options Properties window, click the Hibernate tab.
  4. Uncheck the "Enable hibernation" checkbox to disable the feature, or check the box to enable it. This window also displays the total space required for hibernation.

Hi.i have a dell e521 with a e197 fp monitor. when i turn the system on the monitor stays in stand-by mode. so i have a black screen,is it broken?


not really.. theres a possibility that the monitor is just on standby mode. try to disconnect the power cable of the monitor, then hold the power button of the monitor to drain its flea power. put the power cable back then try it again.

if its going to do the same thing, check the connection of the monitor at the back of the computer. see if its seated properly.

try restarting the computer..

try draining the flea power on the computer as well, possible that the computer is in standby or hibernate mode..

Monitor keeps hibernating, can't make it stop, pixel issue.


Hey,

I think this is more of a problem on your computer instead of the monitor, ofcourse you could try another monitor and see if the same happens. I suspect your computer goes into standby or hibernation on its own, and it does work fine if you reset the computer right?

if you go into power management again, disable or turn off hibernation completely, its on one of the pages.
Make sure its not set to standby, and also disable your screen saver.

Right click on desktop - properties - then screensaver. turn it to none.

Also you could look into the computer bios and make sure its not set to standby or hibernation from there. thats unlikely but you could check.

how to get into bios.. depends on the computer, right when you turn it on, on one of the corners of the screen you will get a message, press button to enter setup or bios. press that to enter bios when its presented.

look around the bios and poweroptions.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Delay in Monitor display once the system goes in sleep mode


Instead of sleep mode, tyr hibernate. It is generally faster except the whole computer shuts down. When you power back up, you're exactly where you were. Mine takes about 30 seconds.

Digital power saving mode


check your monitor power settings.

right click on your desk top then left click on 'properties' in the white box that appears.

this will bring up a 'display properties' box which should have a tab headed 'screen saver' amongst others.

select the screen saver tab.

in this tab there are 2 sections. one to select which screen saver you want to use (and what settings are applied to it), and another section which should be called 'monitor power'.

click the button here which says 'power...' to adjust your power settings.

in the next window there are 4 tabs. select the first tab (power schemes - which should be already selected by default) and you now have 4 options. leave the selected 'power scheme' in the top of the window as it is and just alter the settings for the selected power scheme.

your 4 options are: 'turn off monitor', 'turn off hard disks', 'system standby' and 'system hibernates'  i would recommend setting all of these to 'never', and don't forget to click the 'apply' button after you've done this.

i would also recommend disableing hibernation in the 'hibernate' tab (this is in the same window as the power schemes tab).

once you've adjusted your power settings, don't forget to activate one of your screen savers.  this is only important if you leave the monitor on for a long time with no changes taking place in terms of what is being displayed. if you leave a static image on for hours you will end up with permanent screen burn. (a ghost image that is always there - even when the monitor isn't switched on!).

i don't bother with screen savers personally as i find them annoying, and find it much easier to simply turn the monitor off whenever i'm not going to be using it for the next hour or more.

hope that solved your problem. apologies if it doesn't.

by the way, the tabs etc i described are what i have on my OS (windows XP pro) and may be named differently if you're using a different version of windows.  the 'power options' settings will still be accessible via 'screen saver' tab in desktop properties though.

good luck!
