Having problems with your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor ?

Dell E173FP's main menu keeps flashing up

\015 I have a Dell monitor (the old kind, not an LCD monitor) E773C and the auto-adjust or you know that menu that you go into to adjust contrast and the like keeps coming up on the screen and annoyingly (as I write this even, which is a royal pain to write this to you--but I will endure.) Have you ever heard of this problem? I tried uninstalling the drivers for the monitor. Doesn't work. In fact, that made it worse. I've been having this problem now for a few months. Not until recently has it gotten more frequent and more annoying. I would appreciate any help you can suggest. Thanks. \015

Answers :

The trouble is probably due to failure of one or more of the switches on the circuit board that the front panel buttons operate. Sometimes they begin to act up from age and use, and sometimes they suffer from the "Windex syndrome." That's when spray cleaner has been used to clean the face of the picture tube, and some of it runs down and gets into the switches and associated parts. The best cure is to replace the switches and check the parts around them for damage or changed values. A number of vendors online offer replacement switches ("tactile switches" is what that type is called). Changing them requires skill in soldering, but it's not an impossible task. If you don't feel up to trying it yourself, you could check at a TV service shop to see what they would charge. Or, given today's low prices on LCD monitors, it might be a good time to consider replacing the CRT version you have now.
