Hello,

Your backlight inverter inside the monitor is out. If you are comfortable soldering you can repair it yourself. We have a step by step repair guide on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com/LCDrepair5.htm

The power light on our model E172FPb Dell monitor is blinking. The screen does not turn on. What could be the problem


Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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 DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

hi, extremely common problem for dell 17 in monitors. the capacitors and transistors on the power board internally have gone bad. to get repaired, it may cost 40-50 at a shop. i have repaired these in the past and they always come out well for at least 3 more years. may want to find another monitor though. if you would like steps on how to repair, let me know and i will find my old repair threads to give to you.

You need to open it up and inspect the componente inside, look at the fuse and the transistors in the inverter circuits first, also look for sign of over heating on the board, see pictures here for the guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

I have a Dell E172fPB LCD Monitor that comes on and I can see my desktop for a split second then the green light flashes about once a second or two, and the screen flashes very briefly with the green power...


phil_bischof, Not many sub's for it!! Because the package not standard "TO220AB" It is TO220FP package device. You can try www.digikey.com for this part number: MBRF20200CTGOS-ND and ask them if you really need to buy 10 of them for $27.88 or will they sell you only 1 for $2.80 + shipping? Have you determined cause of rectifier failure? Good luck, guy. 12fixlouie

This is one soution, many more on the net.

You got parts to fix inside the monitor. Inverter problems. The internet is full of this problem. Some say that even if you replace the bad parts, mostly 2sc5707 transistors, you must find out why they are blowing. Many have replaced the parts only to find out that in a couple hours, the parts are bad again. Solutions range from solder joints, transformers, and other transistors.

Good luck, I'm fixing one as soon as the parts arrive.

Dell E173FPf lcd- no picture,steady green light


E173FPf Mfg December 2004
This E173FPF has changed much inside from the November 2003 E172fpb which had the famous 4 identical transistors 5707 that would tend to fail in pairs. If your newer E173FPF displays a green power light and fails to display a picture try replacing the 220uf25v capacitors at C6 and C26. Test them with a volt ohm meter and they will test Ok, replace them anyway. Radio Shack did not have the 25v so I used the 35v, display works fine now. There is an E173FPF repair kit with directions available on Ebay if you don't have a parts store in your area and would prefer delivery.

i'm not an expert at anything...x'cept maybe dumpster diving. God Bless
