Dell flat pannel monitor fail to power up after power outage
\015 Dell E171FP . Was working fine till power outage. When power came back on monitor failed to light up. No signs of lights on display to say that unit is getting any power at all. Have 3 of these monitors that have all failed after power outages.\015
Rtutt, First, before you start to tear apart the monitor any further, take pic's (close-ups) of screws, cables and their positions BEFORE detaching them from their board mounted jacks. Second, the fuse will be a small pigtail type soldered to the power supply board. It's the board that will have the connector on it that the line cord plugs into from outside the plastic cover. This is Pretty neat for you because if you forget where something goes, you can always open up another monitor. Well if you get the steel shield cover removed (BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO RIP OFF ANY CABLES OR MULTI CONDUCTOR RIBBON FLEX CABLES) the cables can then be popped off. you can probably catch a video of monitor tear-down on YOUTUBE.com by doin a search on LCD repair. Yes I have seen some that are 8 to 12min long on the tube. Also you will be visually checking all large electrolytic capacitors for SWOLLEN tops of their aluminum can. You will need a large magnifying glass to inspect the solder side of the board for circular hairline fractures around the leads of heavy and larger "through-hole components, that have been thermally/mechanically STRESSED over the years. they will need to be resoldered. Well any way, keep me posted of your progress. Im louie12fix or lmistyrel@ aol.com PS: I have dell and will take pic's of board!!
