If all your lights are on on the front on the 2000FP then the logic board is bad and the eeprom at49bv8192at will need to be replaced and reprogrammed. Check out www.lcdrepair.us for Instruction videos on the 2000fp as well as parts

SOURCE: Dell E177FPc flat screen monitor

If its the standard type of small clicky on/off button( (usually a black dot with silver casing - but you cannot see that unless your screen is dismantled), and its no longer doing the click bit, it's probably just broken inside unfortunatly.

They are very much prone to breaking up inside. If the screen can be taken apart, you may be able to buy a new button off the internet, but they are often 'surface-mounted' buttons now, which makes them very small and hard to resolder to the board again.

If the button can be felt still making a click, you may be able to spray some cleaning spray (such as SERVISOL or WD40) into the switch, as they sometimes just get dirty inside.
(make sure its turned off before spraying anything like that tho as its all highly flammable).

If you are trying to detach the screen edging, they are usually secured by 2 or 4 screws on the rear (sometimes they may be hidden behind the actual base/stand). After that, usea large flat bladed screwdriver (or something like that), to seperate the front & rear casings. The reason for starting at the bottom is that if you slip or the casing is very awkward and starts to crack as you work out how it comes apart, the marks will be hidden from view later :)

Some of the casings click apart easily like this, but others can take some force, and may even snap the small plastic tags inside as it cracks open - but that it up to the fixer if you wish to take that chance. The screws holding it together are usually more than enough anyway.

The monitor is probably on protection.

To start unplug monitor from power and from computer and test computer with different monitor to find out if it is monitor or computer fault.

If it is computer fault and no video signal , then test:

  • Video cable.
  • Video adapter on PC (sometimes integrated on motherboard)
  • Motherboard.

If it is monitor fault , then the monitor is on protection.

When on protection you keep having a flashing led on front of the monitor , and monitor turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, faulty inverter board, faulty input board, or a fault on LCD Digital Controller board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

Try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

SOURCE: Problems with Dell E173FP 17

Hello,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you aregood at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htmYou can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should workfine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one thesame way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Sounds to me it could be a burnt or illegible ram memory card in your laptop, try taking one of them off, or switching one of them to the other slot just to troubleshoot.

I sounds like you have the video card set to a resolution that is higher that the E177 can handle. It can only go to 1280 x 1024 resolution. You will need to boot into safe mode in windows and set the resolution lower than that so the monitor can show it correctly.

Try another monitor or video card if it has a separate video card. If it does have a separate video card remove it and attach monitor cable to 15 pin VGA plug integrated on the system brd.

My dell Latitude D510 starts up, but the screen remains black.


Check the lights on the power LED. If it is steady green and there is no display then your computer is clearing POST, and there might be a Video card or screen backlight issue.
However, if the light is blinking green or amber etc then its a post issue and you will need to get the computer checked by a hardware technician.
Thanks. If this was helpful, then kindly rate me.

Look inside for bad caps with bulgng tops, worst case will be shorted out transistors in the backlight inverter circuits or bad lamps. Check to see if you do have he 12vdc for the inveter circuits. See example of failed monitors with bad caps here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Dell flat panel monitor -power button blinks green to amber - no


One reason that this is happening could be that it is on Power saving mode. This happens when the LCD monitor detecs an incorrect timing then thats the time that the LCD goes blank and the power botton starts to blink.

what you need to do is to turn the computer off. Unplug cables attach to the LCD make sure it is also off, once done press the power botton for a couple of 30secs to a minute and then release. After doing so re-connect all the cables and make sure that both ends is tight and secure once everything is ok turn the computer on same with the monitor to check if it solves the problem.

You either have a hardware problem with your video card. ( may have pop out of socket when you plug in the monitor) or the cable is not allow communication to the monitor. As long as the amber light comes on you know you have power so focud on data cables and hardware.
