This is a known problem of the Invertor board.If you are technically able you can open the monitor and resolder transistors 2sc5707 as also all pins of 4 yellow invertor transistors that you can see near the backlight connectors.

Hi Tomccaw,
In this case your monitor is working fine. Your system is going to power saving mode. To resolve that remove your RAM and insert it. It will fix your issue.

Press power on... screen flashes on (blink), then goes blank and power button flashes


dpelrod727, Yes, the "switch-mode-power-supply" is in "partial" or "full" SHUTDOWN mode. Reconnect E172FP to a fully booted KNOWN good PC with the win-desktop as the displayed screen. Check with flashlight to see if your LCD panel is both BLACK and BLANK, or just BLACK by holding a bright flashlight 1" from screen at different angles even though the screen appears to be blank. If very faint image of desktop is seen then your SMPS is still half alive. Here are your options in either case. 1. Trade in for new. 2. Try Dell for a cash+old swapout for a Refurbed unit. 3. Check out www.ccl-la.com/badcaps, www.badcaps.net, www.lcdparts.net, and YOUTUBE long video clips dealing with LCD monitor disassembly and LCD repair. could be helpful in making decision on what to do.

Dell E172FP 17 monitor keeps blinking


That sounds like the backlight inverter board. Check ebay for the board or a repair kit for it.
