Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

I have a Dell Energy Star Monitor. Purchased in 2006 (I think).. It seems to be taking much longer for the monitor to boot up after turning on my pc. It used to come alive as soon as I turned on my pc. Is this a sign that the monitor is going "bad"? Or is there something I can do to fix the problem?

It can be a sign of dying power supply.
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 monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Make sure you are confirming the changes. If the problem persists I would call the customer support desk for the monitor as you may be due a replacement.

Hi, The new Dell IN1910N monitor will not provide native resolution of 1366x768 as an option. I am working on a Power Mac G5, 10.4.1.1, GeForce FX 5200 video card. The current Dell SE198WFP monitor...


Hello LJ,

This Monitor is native at 1366 x 768 resolution, and is Energy Star compliant. I am lead to believe this is a conflict within 10.4.1.1
Start by removing the Monitor under Go, Applications, Settings, Monitor, restart the Mac, then add the Monitor with the detection method. This may allow the Mac to detect the Monitor.

The moniter goes into an energy saving mode when the computer is being booted. It sometimes takes sereral attempts of restarting the compujter to finally get it working.


It will happen when your are using two VGA card adapter plug-in into your computer. The one is built-in and the other one is plug-in into AGP or PCI-Express slots.
Experience with monitor goes into energy saving mode is that try to check inside your VGA card is working properly.

Dell 2005FPW Monitor Flicker problem


The flickering is most likely the florescent backlight having a hard time starting, Just like in a light fixture, as it gets old, it takes longer to warm up to get full functionality.
If under warranty, contact Dell for a replacement, if not, then when it becomes untenable, replace the monitor. Prices are dropping drastically, an new 20 or 22 In can be bought for about $150 or less

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.

Monitor will not turn on including power switch


I suspect the power supply for the monitor. Try a power supply from a working monitor. If you have a used computer store nearby, take your power supply to them and try it on another monitor.

There is no need to turn off a monitor using its power switch. Monitors automatically go into standby mode when they are not receiving a signal. In standby mode they use less than one cent of electricity per day. If saving electricity is your goal, raise the temperature in your home by a degree and run the air conditioning less.

Monitor keep going into "sleep" mode


Check the power setting in control panel of windows. If you have a monitor from another computer swap them and see if the problem stays with the computer or monitor.
