Question about Dell UltraSharp 1704FPT 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Is there an easy way to open this monitor?

I need to open up this dell 1704FPT monitor but can only get the sides to "pop" open. The four corners seem to be intent on not coming apart. If anyone can lend some advice that would be great. Thanks in advance!

Can I use the USB ports on the left side of my Dell 1704FPT monitor to connect devices? (e.g., Logitech webcam)

yes you can use the usb port but let me tell you one thing very clearly there is problem with these ports either they dont recognize your usb or maybe your monitor screen flickers... so use monitor port with a lot of care and i advised you to atlest read the manual before you do anything.

Dell 1704FPT just went dead, will not turn on not even yellow light on power button - just seems to have died. Is there a way to reset? or is it time for a new one?

First you need to troubleshoot a little. You should first try another power cable for the monitor, if that doesn't help, you might be able to open up the monitor case and check wether the button is broken. If the button is broken, you're going to have to improvise a new one, since new buttons aren't really being sold. If that isn't the case, or if you can't open up the monitor, take it to computer shop, these things are easier to fix if you can look at it. I hope this helps, Yannick.

I have a Dell monitor model 1704FPT,, seems like the power button has come loose inside.. Can I get inside to repair it .. Thank you

You can turn counter-clockwise the screwz at the back cover of your monitor to open it & check if the power button is loose or defective, even notice if some internal part/s are cold soldered / defective. However, if it's still under Warranty, I recommend to bring the unit to an authorized service center for a Free service check-up & replacement part/s. best regards

Remove the stand, look along the bottom edge - you will see two small slots, one either side. Poke something in the slots and wiggle slighly, the corner will come apart - then just pull until all the clips undo.

Is there an easy way to open this monitor?

-Flip the LCD face down and remove the screws that hold the base in place. -looking at the top edge of the LCD monitor you should see a small notch on each end between the front bezel and the back cover. -Using a plastic tool or a flat blade screw driver insert the tip and gently pop the case open. -Work your way around the edge of the case. -Once the LCD monitor is open unplug the control panel connector from the right side and remove the front bezel. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Old monitor not recognized by new computer, stuck in power save. I just bought a low-end machine from Ibuypower for my parents, to be used primarily for the internet, word processing, and work purposes,nothing complicated. But their old Dell UltraSharp 17'' monitor will not display anything. It's in its powersave mode while the computer boots up, but does not seem to begetting any kind of signal otherwise. I've used both the VGA and DVI hookups, neither have produced any change or response. The monitor was working just fine yesterday with the old Dell PC; there is no other monitor or PC available for me to test the monitor or new Ibuypower system with; I am writing this from a crappy ancient laptop I found in storage, circa 1998ish. I have also switched the monitor between digital and analog mode several times, but it remains in powersave. Wiggling the mouse or hitting any key like it says to bring it out of power save has not worked, although I know the keyboard and mouse are working because even blindly I have been able to click on and open things on the desktop of the new computer. I have respectable computer knowledge so you don't need to dumb-down responses for me too much - yes, the power's on and it's plugged in and all the usual stuff. I'm just perplexed because I've never had a problem with a monitor before, certainly not as silly as ''plugged it in and it doesn't work''.
