Worn power connection

Do you happen to know how to fix the worn dell power connection? I was going to take out the power connection from the board and have a new one soldered on but if there is an easier way I would prefer that.

I have had to do this a few times. firstly, go to ebay and search "b130 power jack' and buy it. next print or write down the instructions from the service manual fount on the dell website ( they sound intimidating but really its not that bad). when you get to the motherboard de-solder the connection and throw the faulty jack out, resolder a new one in (using lowest wattage possible on the soldering iron) and put all the innards back in. I had never taken a laptop apart nor soldered before and mine worked fine afterward.

Well, if it's just the soldering points that are weaking then you don't need a new one. Just resolder those points (probably won't even take any extra solder but i would recommend giving it a little more so it doesn't just break again) and you should be fine. If the actual jack is damaged then you'll have to replace it. No real ease here, though, as you'll have to take the laptop apart either way.

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.)

Look for bad caps and shorted out transisotrs in the power supply/inverter board: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Dell%20E193FP/

If you are going to DIY 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/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.

My dell E151fpb 15' monitor screen turns white


Look for loose connection between the LCD panel T-CON board and the logic board first, it may also have lost the 5vdc for the T-CON board.

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.

I don't know what happened before this but If you have your Operating system CD, then insert it into the drive, boot from CD and follow instructions to repair your operating system or install a fresh copy.

If this does not work, then I would like to know what happened first before you started having this problem.
