Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Replaced LCD Screen

The monitor I had developed large blocks of dead pixels in it, so I disassembled the monitor and looked at the LCD panel itself and discovered that it was a LG.Philips LM170E01 (A5)(NC). I looked online and found a replacement screen that was a almost brand new LM170E01 (A5) LCD Panel. When I disconnected the old LCD Panel at the 30-pin LVDS connection, and plugged in the new panel, the screen did not work. The backlight lit up the screen and I can tell the controls worked, but the image is not correct. There are vertical lines across the entire screen and no adjustment makes them disappear. They vary in color, but almost seem to be in black and white. When I plug the old monitor back in, it still works, there are just the large spots of dead pixels on it as before. I'm not sure what the difference between the monitors is. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

There 2 diffrent LVDS connectors normally on the monitor. a plat one with contacts on one side and a female connector that accepts pins on the end. I would make sure the connectors match. If that does not fix it I would change out the logic board. Check www.lcdrepair.us for instruction videos and parts for that unit.

This problem seem to be the LCD screen have dead pixels or a bruise spots on the LCD screen itself that why you have dark spot or spots on the LCD Screen.This problems can't be repair because this problems doesn't causes by the electronic circuit boards.Tried move the monitor as an angles to the right or to the left might help some lessen the dark spot on the LCD screen that all you could do.If this problems is a very dard bruised spot will not help all or if it is dead pixels on the LCD screen itself.

What does it mean by dead cells?

I assume this is related to your LCD monitor.
I think you mean dead pixels. The LCD monitor has tiny pixel elements, one for each red, blue, green color and each one of these colored pixels are turnes on by a transistor. When a transistor fails then the colored pixel it controls does not light up. This is a dead pixel and it shows up as a tiny black dot.
If the screen displays a blue screen, a dead blue pixel will appear as a tiny black dot in the blue screen.
You normally would not notice a few dead pixels unless they are grouped together.

Black marks on screen i think it needs a degaus but dont know how to do it

LCD monitors do not need degaussing. They operate in a completely way to CRT monitors.
Tiny black marks are most likely dead pixels, if the black marks are large then the LCD screen may be damaged (cracked glass).
This type of damage cannot be repaired simply, the screen needs to be replaced.
I suggest you put your money towards a new LCD monitor.

What are the possible disadvantages of computer monitors?

Monitors, otherwise known as displays or screens, currently come in two formats: LCD and Trinitron ("the boxy thingy").
LCD pros: Flat, low radiation (as far as I know) LCD cons: displays can either come with or develop "dead pixels" - pixels that remain a solid color or display black, are very fragile - pressing the display surface is not "healthy" for the display
Trinitron pros: deep color Trinitron cons: relatively moderate-to-medium radiation
Both types of displays can suffer from "screen burn" - if an image is displayed for too long (several hours/days) it will permanently "burn" itself into the display and be visible at all times.

I have my LG LCD flat screen TV, accidentally i bottle of Soda burst on the screen, i wipe it a dried it using a dry cloth, the next morning i have this black spots on my screen, please help

If you are sure its not a stain. then its a dead pixel on your monitor.. sooner or later it will spread out. To be sure if its a dead pixel, run your monitor in different colors, black screen, green, red and blue.. If the spots stays then its dead pixel.. You will be replacing the lcd when time comes that it spreads out.

My Syncmaster 225bw suddenly developed a horizontal line about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom. It looks like a single line of bad pixels. Is this possibly the screen itself, is it an inverter problem?...

If the inverter is bad you will black screen, the lines can be caused by failed T-CON board which is part of the LCD panel assembly. You may try reseating the ribbon cable on the LCD panel.
Please see LCD panel in my albums here:

I have a fine black line that goes across my screen I rebooted an

This is a dead row of pixels. The LCD panel itself needs to be replaced. It would be far cheaper to replace the monitor.

Black spots appeared on 17" LCD Monitor-SyncMaster740N

you might have what you call "dead pixels" or a "stuck pixel" try a simple test like this one now it is not the most creative one, but it does help to see if that is the case. u might be able to Fix a STUCK pixel, but unfortunately you can not fix a "DEAD pixel" simply because it is DEAD.
try this website for simple fix instructions.
if is dead pixel what you have, if u can live with it, great, if not , it might be a good reason to get yourself an another monitor.

Good luck
