Having problems with your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor ?

Monitor lives its own life ;) Turnes off and on in random moments

\015 My monitor seems to be ok, and as long as it displays stays ok.\015\012But when I reboot PC, and there's obviously no signal, when monitor goes black (green light turns to orange - like in Standby), it stays this way. Sometimes for 3 hours, somtimes for 3 days.\015\012The Power button does not work at all (orange all the time)\015\012Unplugging VGA wires or power does not help. \015\012Basically everytime I turn PC on it's 50% chance that it will work, and when you let it get to standby there's 90% chance it will remain black. \015\012\015\012This is not pain as I use it as a secondary screen, but it's huge inconvenience.\015\012I've read somewhere, that it's only a faulty capacitor, but cannot find that post.\015\012Please help\015

Answers :

It sounds like there's a problem in the power supply or inverter section and it's just teetering on the edge of failure.\015\012\015\012The disruption of the signal is apparently just enough to kick it over the cliff until it's reset.\015\012\015\012Sooner or later, it'll need some help, like connections, capacitors, output transistors, capacitors, transformers. Those are the most common failures in these.\015\012\015\012I think you'll see it get worse

For the past week, when my Sceptre LCD monitor goes to sleep after inactivity, it won't restart immediately. The blue LED blinks every second or so; eventually, the screen begins to flash the display, and then a few minutes after that, will finally turn on. Sometimes the whole process takes five minutes, sometimes an hour. How can I fix this problem? (I can't find the documentation to say exactly what model this is; if that's important, I can look again.)
