Question about Dell E197FP LCD Monitor

Open Question

My pc monitor will not power up. No light, no sound. I have recently moved and I gingerly put it in my car with the rest of the computer stuff! I did not disconnect the connection from the back of the monitor, so I only had to connect it to the tower.

SOURCE: Monitor

The circuit breaker popped due to power fluctuation or something else ? It is clearly understood that your LCD monitor suffered some component burn inside otherwise it would show 'NO SIGNAL' sort of Display if it is not connected. There is nothing to resset. Please open it up & check if there is any sign of burned component or take it to a service center if it is still under warrenty.

SOURCE: Monitor won't display.

I would suggest that the "Event" that caused the CB to trip has caused ya Monitor to fail.. Probably in the Power Supply, My "Pet" area... lol.. anyway Thats wat I would think. It may even have an internal "Fuse" that has "Blown"?

SOURCE: Moniter won't turn on/power light blinks green

This seems to be an issue with the monitor and cannot be fixed.
Please give me the 20 Digit code at the back of the Monitor, I'll check if Monitor is still covered under warranty???

SOURCE: Dell Monitor goes blank, green light still on.

try one thing this will tell you if there is a problem with the monitor or the system
start the system and go in to bios and than check out if u still loose display
and if yes than when u loose display disconnect the data cable of the monitor from the system and chk out if u see the self test on the monitor or not
the self test if the colour patern if u see that its nothing wrong with the monitor its ur system
if u do not see the colour patern ... monitor bad
if the colour patern is seen reseat the cpu heatsink , remove the display card (if any add on display card ) and reseat the memory cards
and if that doesnt work remove all the add on cards and than start the system on the onboard display
and than put the cards one by one u will get the culprit

SOURCE: E173 Monitor has no picture, led powers up, turns off, cycles

sawyrick, This sounds like the switch mode power supply has failed, or it has detected a problem with the inverter board that lights-up the Cold Cathode Fluorescent tubes on rear side of lcd panel. You did not state any history in your complaint!! You didn't even tell how old it is. These things are important! If the fuse inside on the switch-mode-power-supply board were to go "open-circuit" then you wouldn't get any front panel light. In any case, since I don't know your level of electronic repair capability, (level zero because you don't own any test equiptment or soldering iron, solder, solder wick) you have few if any options open to you. Here are 2. 1. Call Dell, ask about monitor swapout program? If any!! You send them your's + $60-$90. They send you Refurbished same model in return. 2. Find out all you can about lcd monitors and their failing SMPS boards and or INVERTER circuit boards CCF tube lighting systems. YOUTUBE has some videos on the subject because of the high rate of failures due to Bad/failing electrolytic filter capacitors and or real crappy soldering of components to the SMPS board and or INVERTER boards. For a look-see only visit lcd-monitor-repair.com or www. badcaps.net or lcdrepair .us just for your own information. Hope thisinfo helps you out. I would certainly like to know what avenue of repair that you select to go with. In any case, I wish you good luck. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com BYE for now.

My son moved the monitor from one pc tp another and it worked great for a few days. Today he turns it on and the screen is black and blinks every couple of seconds. I have restarted, unplugged and checked...


Guess to narrow it down, can he put the monitor on another computer to see if it still works? Also putting different monitor on the current computer might give you a few more ideas. At least then you will know have a better idea of where the problem lies. Hard to diagnose this stuff unless you are the one sitting in front of it.
Hope this starts you in some direction.

Monitor Goes black, or flickers on and off


The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

No power to Dell E173FPc monitor; power light doesn't come on


It sounds like you are not getting any power. I would try another power cord to see if it makes a difference.

I recently moved my computer into my new condo and have not been able to use it since. The problem seems to be with the monitor. I turn on the computer and the fan comes on but the monitor displays "no...


Lack of video signal is usually 1 of 3 things, Power supply (PSU), Video card or Motherboard (mobo).
Situation #1: If you get a blank screen and no sounds or movement it either indicates that the power supply unit (PSU) has failed or something on the motherboard has failed, preventing normal startup.
Situation #1A: You might get some power lights coming on and some fans spinning but the video output does not happen, usually indicates that motherboard is going out or has gone out. Occasionally it will be due to a weak (damaged) PSU.
Situation #2: If you get normal sounds (you can hear windows starting up) and lights but nothing on the screen then it indicates a failed or loose video card.
Always try a different power outlet that you know is working. (Eliminate the easy stuff first!)
If it is out of warranty, try opening up the case, with the power off, of course. If you have Sit #2 and have a video card that you can reseat (take out and then put back in) try that. If it is onboard video then you may have to buy a video card for it.
Also take this time to inspect the capacitors on the motherboard (they look like tiny soda cans) and check for tops that are bulging, swelling or leaking anything. Capacitors should be perfectly flat on top. If you find these then your motherboard is bad (well technically the capacitors on your motherboard are bad). The bad caps will need replacing to fix (not a job for an amateur). If it passes the visual inspection then it may just be your power supply is weak or bad. Notice that a bad PSU does not mean you are getting no power, just not enough to start and run the computer.
A few years ago a company stole the recipe for making capacitors and started making their own capacitors at really cheap prices. The stolen "recipe" was not complete and not correct so these caps started failing after about 2-3 years of use. Emachines, DELL and Gateway were the computer companies most affected by the bad capacitor issues, although any of the big companies could have the same problem. These bad caps also affected power supply makers.
Do you hear anything during startup, beeps, fans or drives spinning, lights on the front or back of computer flashing or lit up? Do you hear the Windows starting sound?
Let us know more then we can troubleshoot better.

LiquidVideo L17LCD2 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor - Power Issues


firstly stop turning it off and on because you will blow something else like a power board then it will be a big paper weight.
next get a torch and when it is powered on and supposed to be showing images, shine the torch at the screen.
if you can see everything then you have a broken backlight or problem with your backlight and connections.
they cost approx £15 and a little labour, its not a big job. you may be able to do it yourself if you can get hold of a service manual.
