My computer monitor is a black screen....the light is lit solid green and I can hear the software playing just no picture

If the light is green, I suspect that the backlight has gone out on you. This could also be caused by you having the brightness turned all the way down.

I have a dell LCD model no 1703FPs monitor, whenever i power the screen its displays for about 4secs and turns black while the light indicator remains green indicating a video signal.

You may have bad backlight inverter board (shorted transistors, transformers, need test lamp to verify), or worst case the lamps assembly (need lamp tester to verify).
You can check and see if the power supply is putting out the 12vdc for the inverter board first and go from there.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

Why the computer doesn't turning on but the green light is lighted

You may want to verify if the computer is the one that do not turn on. Please check if you see the fan on your computer is working and the LED in the mother board is lit.

IF the computer is working and no display on the monitor, despite seeing a green light on the monitor display, this means that monitor is well connected and communicating well with the cpu. Better check the inverter light on the monitor. Replace busted lights. These are responsible for the image you see in your lcd monitor. If the inverter lights are busted then you'll see only black screen.

What could cause a dell flatscreen monitor to go

Probably a bad power supply in the monitor. One of these days it will go black and stay that way.

My dell monitor 1703fps comes on for about 2 seconds

i think if you can service your monitor please see all the filter capacitor i think capacitors leak and need for replacement.

Monitor Screen goes black seconds after turn on-

I ended up fixing my problem, but I'm not sure what the solution is. I had some faulty electrical equipment that I was using to power the monitor (220V to 110V converter and a bad power strip) and I got rid of them. I was using the converter because I moved to Israel and I thought I needed to feed the monitor only 110V, but I now realize that the power cord for the monitor has a built-in converter that accepts 220V input. Now the monitor is plugged directly into the wall and is working fine. Try using a different power source (maybe the wiring or plug you're using is faulty). Good Luck!
