Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

My Dell E173FP monitor will not come on. I have unplugged and replugged the cable from monitor to hard drive case as well as the a/c power cord. I have rebooted the computer several times and all I get on the monitor is a blinking green light. Any suggestions?

The dreaded blinking green led without a display, means that the backlight circuit has failed on this monitor. Typicalll the transistors that drive the backlight transformers short out and fail. I have fixed this on my monitors twice. Very common failure for this monitor and can be fixed quite easy if you know how to use a soldering iron and a meter. They even sell a repair kit on ebay that provides parts to repair this monitor. Just go to ebay and search e17fpb repair and to find it. Hope this helps.

Computer monitor all black but power is on.


Check to see that monitor is turned on, power cord is connected. Check to see that video cable is connected to computer. Verify that monitor's power light is on.
If it's still black with power on, you may have settings that have to be changed on the monitor.

Monitor led is blinking green but screen is black. Unplugged and replugged all cables already.


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.

Monitor has a black screen but the power is on


It is most probably the psu cable that is the problem (the plug) if you can get another cable or borrow one from any lcd tv or another monitor try it out that way if it still does not work sending it in might work but might be more expensive then just buying another monitor if u need a new monitor contact me at Zeeshawn1@gmail.com i might be able to assist u in this (sell you one cheap!)

Dell E173FP Monitor requires unplugging/plugging back in to wake


Perhaps your computer is hibernating instead of going into standby which takes a little longer to wake up from. While you are playing plugs and cables it give it enough time to come out of hibernation.

When the computer is in this mode the USB ports turn off which disables keyboard and mouse so the only way to wake up the computer is to press the power button on the computer itself.

One tell tale sign a computer is in hibernation is that the power light on the computer will slowly blink.

I hope this helps.

Below you will find my recommendations for troubleshooting this issue:

1. Reseat the power cord and verify a good power source.

To reseat the power cord, follow the steps below:

1.1 Power down the system.
1.2 Unplug the power cord.
1.3 Wait approximately one minute.
1.4 Reseat the power cord.
1.5 Verify that the power cord is plugged directly into a known good power outlet.

2. Verify that the monitor is receiving power from a known good outlet and bypass any power strips.

To test the power outlet, perform the following steps:

2.1 Unplug the monitor power cable from the power outlet.
2.2 Plug in a different device, and verify that the device is operational.
2.3 If there is no power try another outlet. Remove any power strips and try plugging directly into the main power outlet.

3. Verify the monitor is powered on and the power button is engaged.

Ensure that the monitor is powered on and that the power button is fully engaged. To do so, check the power LED on the front of the monitor; it should be lit.

NOTE: There are two types of power switches:
A mechanical switch characterized by a long travel. You have to push it further and you will hear an audible click.
An electrical switch that has a short travel and almost no click.

A lit monitor LED can be any of the following:

* Green
* Blinking green
* Yellow
* Blinking yellow
* A combination, such as alternating green and yellow

Any of these states indicate the monitor is receiving power and that you should proceed.

4. Swap power cables.

To try a known good power cable on the monitor, follow the instructions below:

4.1 Turn off a working monitor.
4.2 Unplug the cable from the back of the working monitor, and unplug the cable from the wall.
4.3 Unplug the cable from the monitor in question.
4.4 Plug in the cable that came from the working monitor.

5. Run the monitor self test.

To run the monitor self test, perform the following steps:

5.1 Power off both the computer and the monitor.
5.2 Unplug the video cable from the computer or video card.
5.3 Reseat the power cord to the monitor, ensuring it is plugged into a known-good outlet.
5.4 Power on the monitor.

NOTE: The monitor self test will move around on some monitor models. If the monitor self test moves, allow it to move to the affected areas of the monitor to check for the problem described.

If the Self test failed, it's possible that the monitor is faulty. Contact dell to check if it's still under warranty so they can replace it.

Replacing the Logic board


OK. Start by remiving the cover, fan, adaptor card and power supply. Remove from the logic board: The hard drive power cable, hard drive data cable and the floppy drive cable. with the rear of the case facing you, release the two tabs with your forefingers while at the same time as pushing on the 120-pin connector with your right thumb. Slide the logic board to the front of the case until it stops. Caution: Be sure the power on/off button clears the rear panel before you lift the logic board out of the case. While lifting the board, do not touch connector J19 or J20. (The oil from your skin harms the connectors.) Gently lift the board out of the case. Replacement Note: Remove the SIMMs from the defective logic board and install them on the replacement logic board. I really hope this helps because it is correct information. If you want to be extra cautious, visit a repair shop instead. Good Luck!
