Question about Dell E771a 17" CRT Monitor
My monitor began started fickerin,then the screen display switched from 1024x768 to a shrink screen,with white lines running tru it..an turns on and off by itself while the green light is still on (dell e771a)...is there any help for me?..oh it was about 3feet away from my tele is that a problem 2?
Its old and no monitor this old works.
its older than 2001 year. on or about.
its a vacuum tube CRT relic o f the past.
it is a fire hazard this old (dust /lint and 17,000 volts are not friends)
this monitor has this magic I2C chip inside that scans for errors 24/7 if it seen things that can burn up the screen it shut down.
fixing it will cost 5 time the price of a nice LED flat screen used, 17"
why mess with relics?
CRTs are endsville.
the monitor if you attempt to use an ******* resolution of any kind
my reset it self to avoid screen burn, CRTs can burn up.
each maker handles this in a different way,
one shuts off
other just cut the electron beam (Z axis ) to ZERO black screen.
there call there design.
1024 x 768 at 75 Hz, is max.,.. for a fact. so say the manual
try 60 Hz, did you?

SOURCE: White screen
First, always try it on multiple types of computers (different video cards), and multiple cables. Then, open it up and make sure the internal connections are solid. Finally, consider putting in a new inverter. This has been known to fix all-black and all-white monitor problems.

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.
