Hi there.
I have just fixed my monitor. Symptoms were that the monitor would not recover from standby and flashing green power led. I found that the capacitors in the internal power supply had failed. I relaced 2x 100uf/10v Electrolitic capacitors and away we go. Approx $4. Look for swolen or leaky capacitors.
I would say that given the high quality controll these days that the same thing will happen to all these monitors over time. I would recomend replacing all the caps in the power supply.

Please disconnect the Monitor Data cable from Computer.
If you see Dell Colored bars, it means, monitor is working fine,
If still black, please ask for replacement, since Monitors have 3 years of warranty if not purchased with the computer.

Now connect the cable back to computer and turn the computer off by holding the power button on computer and turn it back on...

Blinking Green shows that computer is in sleep mode......

Hope this should resolve the issue.

Double check all your cables are securely attached and if you have pets that no cables have been chewed on. If you can borrow a neighbors monitor do so and you can verify that the problem is your monitor or your computer. Try to just swap the monitor and not the cables to do this test.
All else fails, used 17 " lcd's show up at garage sales pretty cheap ($15-$25)

Make sure you set up your laptop to display to a second screen. Depending on your Operating system, go to your display properties and go to the settings tab. Then click on the second monitor and enable it.

SCREEN BLANKS WITH POWER LIT GREEN


Look for bulged or leaking capacitors on the power supply board. If you can solder, you should be able to replace them with the same type and rating and that may just solve the problem. I've had luck with a couple of dozen monitors so far.
