Question about Dell E177FP LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor will not turn off

I've had this Dell E177FP monitor since November 2006, and it has been OK until lately. The last few weeks, I've had intermittent trouble getting it to turn on and off when pressing the power button....the initial 'casual' pressing of the button would not work, but the second more forceful/intentional pressing would turn the monitor on or off. Yesterday, I had much more difficulty turning the monitor on; I think it took 5 attempts to turn it on. When I tried to turn it off, after the 5th try I had a thought that maybe I should leave it on, that if I did get it to turn off, I would never be able to turn it on again. I suppose I could just leave it on, but won't that result in other problems or damage over the long haul?

Any help you can offer on what to do about this would be greatly appreciated.

    Hmm.... not sure what you mean by "main switch". If you look at this graphic, the button furthest to the right is labeled "Power On/Off button with LED indicator" on the "Setting Up Your Monitor" sheet that came with it. There are no other switches; the other buttons are for modifying the display. Are you referring to the switch for the CPU/tower?

The power switch on an LCD monitor is only a power saver, it does not switch it off completely. There is no reason why you cannot use the mains switch to turn the monitor on and off - assuming that it was on in the first place!

Most LCD monitors have a 3 year warrantly - at least they do in the UK. Why not contact Dell and get them to replace it for you. You should do this before the 3 years are up.

Cheers

    Yes, you can have a separate lead to the mains not one taken from the PC power supply.

Hello,

The E177fp and E197fp are identical units other than the size of the display panel. Here is a link to a repair guide for the E177fp that has videos showing how to open the unit. It should help you get your open.

I have worked a great deal with the Dell E177fpv boards and when it is blinking power switch then it's bad. Most the time it's the C204,and C203 compositors that are bad (100uF 10v), and 70% of the time the C159,C154 ( 470 uF 25V are bad as well. now i have replaced them many of time and it had came back to life. i have also found other caps bad on it as well. i know you can order a new board for $39.00 and here is the link. http://www.lcdrepair.us/e177fpv_inverter-power.html

Monitor does not want to wake up. Pressing the yellow rest switch the button goes green for less that 3 seconds, then goes yellow.


try unplugging your computer and your monitor for about a minute and turn back on. Then see if it works, Good Luck ;)

Disconnect the monitors plug. Unplug the power cord. You may not have to do both, but it reset mine and it works fine now.

Monitor won't turn on without help.


Do you have a second monitor or can you borrow one to check if the fault lies with the monitor or the PC?

If the monitor is at fault then there is not much you can do yourself. I suggest you contact Dell and get them to replace it under warranty. Most LCD monitors have a 3 year warrantly, at least they do in the UK.
