Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Display dies 3 seconds aafter Power on

I have a E172FPb which when powered on the self test display is visable but then then the display dies but the green light on power siwtch stays on.

I would think it is a power supply problem but I have never looked at these units before.

Any ideas?

    I'm having the exact same problem, however its a Dell E178FP. Straight out of the box, tried on two seperate computers with same results. I can turn computer on, and I will see 3 seconds of computer activity (boot up, sitting idle ect) then black screen with green power button still on. If I turn computer, power button goes orange. I can turn monitor off then on again and I will see 3 seconds of video, but then it goes black again. Just looking to see if anyone has a solution out here before I contact Dell.

This is one soution, many more on the net.

You got parts to fix inside the monitor. Inverter problems. The internet is full of this problem. Some say that even if you replace the bad parts, mostly 2sc5707 transistors, you must find out why they are blowing. Many have replaced the parts only to find out that in a couple hours, the parts are bad again. Solutions range from solder joints, transformers, and other transistors.

Good luck, I'm fixing one as soon as the parts arrive.

Turn tv on. green light solid display, no picture or sound


The flashing green light is likely indicative of a self-test failure, indicating the TV has detected some sort of internal fault. With no picture or sound, one strong suspect is the power supply. Flat-panel TV's have an internal DC power supply that converts the inbound AC current, and when these fail, or are unable to supply a minimum level of power to the set, it can behave as you describe, providing only enough power for the green light to illuminate.

The Dell AS 501 monitor display comes and goes off in seconds. If I switch off and on again, the display comes back and goes off again in less than a second. I repeat this as many times the same monitor...


This sounds like the power inverter is failed.. It's what pumps up the power for the light in the monitor.
You could try unplug the sound bar from the back of monitor if you have the sound bar installed. Just a maybe..
To fix the inverter (replace) is usually better to buy newmonitor unless you do it your self.
The defective LCD Backlight inverter will cause the following symptoms:
  • No Display, but Power Indicate light stay on green (Or Blue).
  • Screen flash on and off and the power indicate light stays on green (or Blue).
  • Dim Display

You need to open it up and inspect the componente inside, look at the fuse and the transistors in the inverter circuits first, also look for sign of over heating on the board, see pictures here for the guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

There are two possibilities, one is bad caps in the power supply, number two is shorted out transistors (P/N c5706/5707) in the inverter circuits. Please open it up and report back what you see so we can guide you further, see example fo failed monitors due to bad caps, lamps, etc: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

My monitor keeps going into power save mode


Hello,

Its not power saver mode, when the display goes black and the power light starts flashing that is a good indication that the power supply is about to die. The Dell E172 monitors are noted for this problem. We have step by step repair guides posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com Click on the monitor repair link. The Dell E172 series actually has several sub models, check your specific model, the sticker on the back will have either E172FPb, E172FPc, E172FPf. We have guides for all 3 versions posted.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

10-30-2007, 07:54 PM I have the same monitor and it had the same problem, I got it for $10 at a garage sale because they "didnt know if it worked or not" BS, they knew it was broke. But i accepted the challenge. There are four transistors on the power supply board detailed as Q759, Q760, Q739 and Q740. It is usually just two that go bad on these monitors, but instead of hassling with testing all four, I would recommend just replacing all four. Here are some replacement part numbers. I used NTE2524, same as NTE2525, and paid about $1.25 each.
and here are Sanyo parts (hard to obtain):
2sc5707 C5707
2sd1803
2sd1804

ECG2524

The transistors are rated at 60v 20w.

Just wanted to share my success story. Hope this info helps someone. I found my info on some other forums that i can't find right now.

Monitor comes on, I can see everything perfect then goes black


"Most" newer monitors will let you know if the are no longer receiving a signal. Sounds like the backlight is burnt out. Try getting a bright (LED works best) flashlight and shining it at the screen at all angles to see if you can see any of what you were doing. If the backlight is on the fritz, either return it on warranty or buy a new one.

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
