1 Answer

Display dies 3 seconds aafter Power on

I have a E172FPb which when powered on the self test display is visable but then then the display dies but the green light on power siwtch stays on.

I would think it is a power supply problem but I have never looked at these units before.

Any ideas?

    I'm having the exact same problem, however its a Dell E178FP. Straight out of the box, tried on two seperate computers with same results. I can turn computer on, and I will see 3 seconds of computer activity (boot up, sitting idle ect) then black screen with green power button still on. If I turn computer, power button goes orange. I can turn monitor off then on again and I will see 3 seconds of video, but then it goes black again. Just looking to see if anyone has a solution out here before I contact Dell.

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.

Samsung syncmaster 2220 blinking blue light and no image display


Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

Good luck.

On dell 2405fpw, the screen just went black. Unable to select VGA input. Unable to perform self test.


You need to power cycle your LCD moniter, and then disconnect the display cable of your LCD from your system and see if yor LCD is doing the self test, if that is passing the self test that means there is nothing wrong with your LCD you need to check your system espeacially display adaptor and the drivers, you can also cross check if you have any other monuiter at home.

If your LCD moniter does not pass the self test then it means it has crashed you need to get it repaired or get the new one.

The Dell AS 501 monitor display comes and goes off in seconds. If I switch off and on again, the display comes back and goes off again in less than a second. I repeat this as many times the same monitor...


This sounds like the power inverter is failed.. It's what pumps up the power for the light in the monitor.
You could try unplug the sound bar from the back of monitor if you have the sound bar installed. Just a maybe..
To fix the inverter (replace) is usually better to buy newmonitor unless you do it your self.
The defective LCD Backlight inverter will cause the following symptoms:
  • No Display, but Power Indicate light stay on green (Or Blue).
  • Screen flash on and off and the power indicate light stays on green (or Blue).
  • Dim Display

Dell e173fpc Display Issue


Check if the cable connected to your monitor and video card is fix and secure.. Check also if the video card is properly seated in the motherboard.... Try to check using other computer if the video card is working..

If the test is all ok.. then the last option will be to check the backlight inverter of your monitor....To do this, you need to bring the monitor to a credible technician to have it replace..



much appreciated if you could rate this help..thanks..

My monitor keeps going into power save mode


Hello,

Its not power saver mode, when the display goes black and the power light starts flashing that is a good indication that the power supply is about to die. The Dell E172 monitors are noted for this problem. We have step by step repair guides posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com Click on the monitor repair link. The Dell E172 series actually has several sub models, check your specific model, the sticker on the back will have either E172FPb, E172FPc, E172FPf. We have guides for all 3 versions posted.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

THE PROBLEM IS THE MONITOR IT SELF.

IT IS TIME TO BUY A NEW MONITOR.

I've had a very similar issue on many Dell Monitors. Mine have been under warranty and they usually send me a new monitor, but I believe the issue lies with the power supply within the monitor.

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
