Question about Dell UltraSharp 1701FP 17" LCD Monitor

Dell 1701FP monitor - power buttons blinking - no display - no white screen

Hi guys, I just got a free lcd panel from a friend who broke it recently. Its been dropped and the screen is cracked, but when I plug it into my laptop as a secondary monitor, I don't see anything on the broken lcd panel. The power buttons just kinda blink randomly - green for the power and amber of the brightness contrast buttons. I am pretty good at experimenting with electronics, so I did open the case up, and found out that the inverter is dead. For this reason, I have another inverter borrowed from a CCFL kit, and I found out that the tubes to burn, and you can see the white glow. But now that the screen glows, and I have the controller board hooked to my laptop as a secondary, when the board is powered up, I still don't see any image, and the LED's on the power button controller just blink randomly. Anyone got a remedy or solution for this?

    Hello, I have the same issue as joel joely. The monitor I have is the Dell 1701FP (black) and it was donated to me. It worked fine for about 6 months and then started acting as if it were going into sleep mode but I could not get it to come out of sleep mode by moving the mouse or pressing keys on the keyboard. The green light stayed on but the further right light turned amber AND the power button would not turn it off. Although it is not a fix, my work around was to unplug it and plug it back in after a few seconds and VIOLA the screen came back on and I could see my desktop again. I'm still researching what causes this and if there is any permanent fix.

Solution to a blinking orange power light indicator.

Checking procedures.

1. Check the fuse on the inverter board labeled F1. If it is opened then your inverter board has a problem. That's why the fuse is opened.

2. Remove the white wide cable connecting the main board and inverter board. Next plug the D-sub cable and power adapter and test. If the 2 green light indicators are solid green then your problem is positively coming from your inverter board.

Solution in fixing the inverter board:

In my case, the fuse was opened. So I first resoldered all the legs of the 4 transformers. Eight legs each transformer. Resoldered also the capacitor at the back of the inverter board. Checked the 2 diodes labeled (D3 and D13). One of them was shorted. So replaced it using Radioshack 3A 400piv. It is quite bigger in value but I just want to make sure it can handle the load of current.

Tip in checking a diode, it should always open using a digital tester.

That's it. re-assemble then test it again.

    I forgot to mention on how to fix the fuse.



    3 ways:

    1. The cheapest is to use 3 fine strand of wires and twist them, then solder them on top of the fuse.

    2. Use a car fuse ( low amperes).

    3. Buy a replacement fuse from Radioshack or any electronic stores. Solder it.

Sounds like the LCD digitizer which either broke inside OR became disconnected. If the impact was not enough to sustain a screen crack, and you have warranty with either LG or through your carrier, you can get LG to fix it free if there is no physical damage, cracked screen, or water damage, with your carrier, it would be the easy, just tell them the screen isn't broken, the phone is intact but the screen is blank. That is a hardware failure... they are supposed to be able to withstand some drops so it really depends on how much physical damage there is.

A digitizer LCD is not expensive and there are ways to change them fairly simple since the screen isn't cracked, you go through most LG phones via the back, remove the camera, remove a black cover that holds the sim and or memory card, BE CAREFUL and please look at youtube to see a complete disassembly of your particular LG phone.

Hi, my son dropped my LZ2 camera and now it starts when I power it on, all menus and functions seems to be ok, but no image is displayed in the LCD. Any ideas what's going on?


The LDC screen most likely broke the screen did not crack by the actual underlying LCD screen broke the only option is to replace the screen or have it replaced at a local camera shop

My Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. HDTV LCD which was bumped into pretty hard and the inside screen on the tv cracked. The crack is only visible when the tv is on can this be fixed or is it garbage


Unfortunatly it is garbage basically.. You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new LCD. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

If the screen is broke as in "cracked", it's typically not practical to replace that part.
