Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Monitor powers up/flashes on briefly, then screen goes black

The power light flashes green and clearly the monitor has juice and the proper power as the home screen looks right if just for a second. Then it turns black and I can't get it to work again. I was hitting the side of it for a couple weeks and it would power on no problem but now it wont ever get past this initial freak out. this sounds like a common issue? help!

    SCREEN ON. GREEN POWER LITE BEGINS FLASING. SCREEN GOES DARK AND ONLY WAY I HAVE FOUND TO BRING BACK ON IS TO STRIKE THE FRAME OF MONITOR IN PLACES.

I had the same problem... someone somewhere on this site suggested to turn the brightness down to <57%. Took me ages to do as the monitor is only a couple of seconds on. So basically tried it blind with the monitor function buttons and when I was less than 69% suddenly it worked... I have now my own theories why I run into monitor problems: AOL latest updated prompted me to change the desktop resolution setting to 1024 x 768 pixels, 32 bit which is theoretically possible but puts an electrical strain on the conduits... I've now changed it to a medium setting of 960 x 720 pixels, 32 bit which is still o.k. and the maxium brightness on the monitor to 56%. As I say, it took me ages to figure it out: at least I got around driver updates or even purchasing a new monitor... Good luck to you, mate. Hope this helps to you or anyone else who has the same problem. SpeedySpod

My flatron L1710S flat screen will not come out of power saving mode. When I turn on the monitor the power button/light is green for a few seconds, the screen indicated "power saving mode", then...

I switch on my PC, ensuring that all cables, leads and power supplies are connected properly. The tower powers up no problems at all. I switch the screen on, the green led lights up, the screen is completely black. A blue box appears centrally on the screen with the text 'power saving mode'. The green led light turns amber and then the screen just goes black.

Please don't suggest going to control panel, as I can't get that far.

PLEASE PLEASE CAN ANYONE SUGGEST ANYTHING give me

Monitor will appear to come on a "no signal" sign flashes up then the screen goes black. If you press the on off swich the green light will come on briefly then go to orange and then disappears completely...

could be a number of possibilities, lcd backlight is going bad, bad capacitors on the power board, lcd cable needs to be reseated, power board needs to be replaced. Best possibility would be to take it to a repair shop and see what the costs would run to fix it.

If its more then the cost of a new monitor then get a new monitor cause you would get the warranty.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.
