No power in dell e173fpf

Hello i have a problem with my dell e173fpf. no power , no led . i found that D854 (dual diode ) was shorted . replaced it with another kind of dual diode . it was ok and the monitors goes on . but i wanted to try again if without soldering the dual diode the led goes on or no . so i found that without it the monitor doesn't go on . so i resold it on the board but now it doesn't go on .i don't understand what happed . did the fact of powering it without diode had destroy another component ?

I would expect the same (new) part failed. Try another dual diode otherwise you may be chasing the problem around the board.. Good Luck, Tim

My kdl-32l5000 has a diode shorted in the power supply but i cant find out what kind of diode it is the location number is ''D6103''

Look for another diode on that circuit board that looks identical and take a reading in ohms with no meter and that the diode you will need to replace the resistor it should say on the circuit panel look with a magnifying glass

My Drink-O-Matic DR-3 power supply HYS68-12-50 crackles and led light flickers. The machine does not cool. It was a gift and worked about 6 to 9 months.

I have the same machine, my power supply was humming and the light completely went out. I took it apart and tested the dual package diode and found one the of the diodes went bad. I un soldered it and cross referenced it with a different part replaced it and now it works

Initially, pls check D854 on the Power Supply/Logic board. It is a dual diode. If you would prefer board replacement rather than component level repair, this might be of help. This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

This is of course in addition to checking the usual, power cord, fuse, outlet etc.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Dell E173FPf lcd- no picture,steady green light

E173FPf Mfg December 2004
This E173FPF has changed much inside from the November 2003 E172fpb which had the famous 4 identical transistors 5707 that would tend to fail in pairs. If your newer E173FPF displays a green power light and fails to display a picture try replacing the 220uf25v capacitors at C6 and C26. Test them with a volt ohm meter and they will test Ok, replace them anyway. Radio Shack did not have the 25v so I used the 35v, display works fine now. There is an E173FPF repair kit with directions available on Ebay if you don't have a parts store in your area and would prefer delivery.

i'm not an expert at anything...x'cept maybe dumpster diving. God Bless

Won't turn on

Could be a power supply issue. Maybe it's not getting enough voltage from the power supply unit. Could also be some bad solder points on the circuit board, or maybe a burnt capaciter.
