If it's going into powersave mode, it usually means it's not getting a signal from the video card. Try plugging this monitor into another machine or laptop and you should be able to tell if that's the issue.

    If it didn't work on another machine either, it's not drivers. It's the monitor itself. Almost cheaper to replace than repair these days.

    To be sure, if you've got a different monitor available, plug that into you pc, and if that works you know for sure it's a bad monitor.

I have A "Dell" E152FPc, and I have found an open transistor (Q201) on the Power Supply Board. My monitor comes on nice and bright for approximately 2 seconds, then goes dark; the power LED is steady. The voltage to the PWM IC is waky.
Before you try any hardware troubleshooting go to your control panel and turn off any power management options.

Why is my Dell Monitor Blank


If you have another computer, try and see if you can hook it up to that and test it. If it still doesn't work it may be dead.

We had a power outage at my shop and now my Dell e171fp monitor will not power up. No light near on button and monitor is black. Switched to known good pwr cable and monitor still blank.


This generally is not good news, when the power comes back on it peaks causing the damage in it's wake. The power supply has been compromised and if you are very lucky you might get away with a fuse change. The monitor will need to be dis-assembled to assess the situation and hopefully it will start back up with minimal repairs. The fuse should be located near the power cord going into the circuit board.

Was working then screen went black now it seems that the power is on but the screen stays black nomatter what i try.


More likely to be inverter board for the backlight has gone out or the power supply that supplies the voltage to the inverter board has gone out. You hav to take it apart to find out.

Padlock appears on screen


The padlock is an indication that the On Screen Display is locked. You can also lock or unlock the OSD by pushing the Menu button for over 15 seconds.

Dell E171FP Monitor goes black after 2 secs


Hi, I don't think the problem is with your monitor. Your monitor sounds like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The monitor is supposed to turn off if there's no cable attached, which means there's no signal input. When the screen goes black, does the power light stay on and turn orange? or does it go off as well? I would recommend that you lower your screen resolution to 1280x1024 or lower in the Display Properties window, then remove your primary monitor, and connect the monitor to your desktop computer. You should see it light up when connected. The monitor auto-senses when there's a computer attached to the cable and when there's a signal. If it doesn't see a signal, it goes black to save power.

My E172fp has a blank screen...when i unplug and plug it back in,the "dell dimension" or whatever that logo is comes on for a second, then the screen goes blank and stays that way.another monitor works...


i have the same issue before with my DELL 2001FP, I replace the 3 capacitor on the board that look like defective because the top is look like swolen, it should be flat. I replace it with the same value and now the it works better.

i hope this might help .

Order new capacitors and replace. I had the same problem with mine and with $4 and a soldering iron I got mine back up and running.
