Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Final Answer to Dell E173FP blank screen problem?

Ive done alot of searching. When I turn on the screen, it goes blank after 1/2 second and the green power light stays on.
I replaced the 4 transistors on the inverter board and it didnt fix the problem.
Are there any other solutions to the problem?

    The monitor goes blank and the power button flickers after an unpredictable amount of time (a minute to several minutes) passes. Sometimes the monitor works fine for an hour. If I tilt the monitor forward, if often resolves the problem when I tilt it back. Go figure!

    I have the same problem, when I turn it on, after about a second it goes blank, but the green power light stays on. I can still hear everything. If I turn it off then on again, it goes blank again in a second. This problem started after I did a reformat and system reinstall with drivers from Dell.com

You might need to change the screen refresh rate. Go do Control Panel> Display> Setting> Advance, choose 60 Hz. In order to make your Monitor able to display, restart the PC, press F8 on the keyboard frequently upon splashing ( 1 or 2 seconds after PC restarts). Select enable VGA mode by pressing up arrow of the keyboard> press enter. The display should look bigger, then you can start adjusting the screen refresh rate to 60 Hz

Screen Goes Blank


Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

Dell E173FP - After sometime the screen switches off


Sorry not a solution - but I have started experiencing the exact same problem over the last month although sometimes, on switching on again, it will run for 10-15 minutes before the problem re-emerges. Initially I put it down to the v. hot weather in July but it still continues. So I would also appreciate any solutions!
