My dell e173fp monitor has quit working. The power light continually blinks when power is applied, even without having to turn it on. An identical substitute monitor works fine on the computer system. ...

Is the power blinking amber? This is a DPMS power-save mode. With the computer disconnected and the monitor on, do you see the colored self-test block floating around? With the monitor on, computer connected, and you still have no image displayed, take a bright flashlight and examine the screen closely. If you can see a very dim display in the screen, the fluorescent tubes which light up the *background* and provide the vivid picture(sort of like a how an x-ray picture viewer works) are defective. The power light blinking may be the power supply sensing the non-functioning tubes or it could just be bad. If your display is under warranty, replace it. If not, trying to have the monitor repaired for this type of problem is almost as costly as a new one--and there won't be an active warranty on anything else that might fail. Hope I helped you.---Rick

Your monitor has a bad power supply board. This happens often on LCD monitors because of the heat buildup in them. If you can solder them go to our web site at: We have a step by step dis-assembly and repair guide for your monitor.
