Question about Dell E173FPf 17" TFT LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Dell monitor. When i turn my monitor on it flashes off. I can see a faint screen. I googled the problem and it brought up fixya.com. I read one of your posts where you said the lamps had gotten broken. But i couldn't find where to get the lamps online. I am assuming that they are bulbs? If you have a link for that it would be great

A125 monitor is dark


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

You can try replacing the power supply/inverter board or troubleshoot it down to component level.
It can be the fuse, transistors, bad solder joints, bad lamps assembly, etc.

Press power on... screen flashes on (blink), then goes blank and power button flashes


dpelrod727, Yes, the "switch-mode-power-supply" is in "partial" or "full" SHUTDOWN mode. Reconnect E172FP to a fully booted KNOWN good PC with the win-desktop as the displayed screen. Check with flashlight to see if your LCD panel is both BLACK and BLANK, or just BLACK by holding a bright flashlight 1" from screen at different angles even though the screen appears to be blank. If very faint image of desktop is seen then your SMPS is still half alive. Here are your options in either case. 1. Trade in for new. 2. Try Dell for a cash+old swapout for a Refurbed unit. 3. Check out www.ccl-la.com/badcaps, www.badcaps.net, www.lcdparts.net, and YOUTUBE long video clips dealing with LCD monitor disassembly and LCD repair. could be helpful in making decision on what to do.

If you get the boot image on your screen then you screen is working correctly unless there's something that you not explaining. You can try an ext. monitor if you think it is something related to your LCD screen not woring during boot up. If the ext monitor not showing your laptop to boot then you have problem with your OS and may need to get it repaired or restored.

Dell monitor 2005FPW keeps on flashing




I was having the same problem.
I solved it by replacing the two 47µF capacitors on the power supply/inverter board.
I actually removed all the capacitors (around 13) and all checked out fine except for the two 47µF.
I forgot to take pictures or even write down the capacitor label on the board.
They are located close to the logic board connector
