Question about E-Machines E17T4 LCD Monitor

1 Answer

E17T4 monitor won't turn on

Have had monitor for about 18 months now. Today it just went off and won't come back on. The light on the front doesn't come on at all (yellow or blue). Tried plugging it into a different electrical outlet, and it still doesn't work. Plugged another monitor into my computer and it works fine.

Is this something that has happened to others? Could it be something as simple as a fuse or a circuit breaker inside the monitor? Is this type of problem fixable?

It could certainly be a fuse inside the monitor, although it's more likely to be an electrolytic capacitor. These kinds of repairs are possible but only by a skilled technician - with the right tools and knowledge. If your monitor is still under warranty, I recommend returning it to the manufacturer. If not, a TV or computer repair shop might be able to repair it, but it will probably be rather expensive.

The problem is probably localized in the monitor's power supply board, and a possible fix is to replace that board. If you can find another one you might be able to replace it and repair the monitor - but finding one might be difficult.

I have a black e machines E17T4 monitor that suddenly stopped working, the power button does nothing when it's plugged in can it be fixed?

It might be able to be fixed but typically repairs on monitors are going to cost you more than a new one would. If it's still in warranty I would contact the manufacturer unless you purchased an extended warranty.

My monitor doesn't display anything, though it's receiving input from the CPU. I know that input is being received because the monitor status light is green, and times out (turns orange).

Same thing happened to me! Went to bed last night, everything was fine. Woke up today, orange light came on, no display, slight flickering seen, but that's it. Cables and cords are fine, tried unplugging and plugging it back in, NOTHING. Totally dead. I'm guess off to buy a new one today. Typical made-in-China JUNK.

My monitor randomly turns off.

Most likely you have a bad INVERTER BOARD.

It sounds like the power supply board on your monitor is failing. If it's still under warranty you might be able to get a replacement from the manufacturer - if not, you might be able to have it repaired at a computer or TV repair shop.
