Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Twice my Dell monitor has exhibited this failure. I leave the system alone, so the screen is black when I return (normal). I move the mouse and the screen blinks, but goes back to black, and the power button itself then cycles on and off, making it impossible to even manually power it down. I swapped to an old monitor. It worked again weeks later when swapping back but then did the same thing. Is it bye-bye time, or is there a known fix worth invoking repair?

Blinking powerlamp is indicating that the power supply is in shut down/restart due to short circuits, these DELL are known to have failed transistors in the inverter circuits due to poor solder joints. See example of here:

Black screen when the power is on.


Common failure in the Dell are shorted transistors or bad caps in the inverter ccircuits, bad solder joints, bad caps in power supply. I would try it on another PC first, if it still does not work, you will have to open it up. Please look through my pictures of failed Dell moniotrs to get some ideas.

Just got a new computer DELL Studio...hooked it to my existing monitor (big W3000 / DELL)when i leave the office & it times out....i come back in & i move the mouse but the computer does'nt cpme...


Tom, try connecting a KNOWN GOOD monitor to your PC. If it works fine for 2 hrs and will recover from "time-out" then I would think that the monitor is having a problem with it's backlighting system. Have you had any problem with black screen while doing constant keyboard and mouse movement? Try adjusting time-out settings under "Control Panel" then "Display" then "Power" and select not to turn off monitor. See if that fixes the problem. 12fixlouie

Wireless mouse freezes the screen goes white it is a dell monitor i have had for about 3/4 years and a cheap wireless keyboard and mouse which i have had for about 2and a half years just started today...


Are the batteries fresh in the keyboard and mouse? Do you have USB keyboard and mouse to try (to eliminate possibility of wireless keyboard / mouse failure) If you do have alternate (USB or PS/2) keyboard and mouse, make sure and unplug the USB receiver for wireless set before testing. Let me know results.

Monitor not receiving data from computer?


If you did not hear any beep from your CPU, then the problem is in the system not the screen.
Try connecting the screen to another computer and try also a working screen of a friend to your computer...
You'll find out that either the screen or the computer...

Good luck... post me back for your result.
