Question about Dell UltraSharp 1701FP 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
My dell 1701fp monitor takes several dozen attempts sometimes to turn on. Sometimes more, some less. When finally on it seems fine. Each time i press the power button, the power light and screen flicker momentarily then go blank again. It is very frustrating as it can take ages to get on! Anyone know whats wrong?
i bought a new acer 19" . i will try to change the capacitors and see how it works. if not, i will try the power inverter option. but my new lcd itself cost me 100$ after rebate. so paying 70 pounds for an inverter is unwise. previous poster, I am sure it is problem with monitor and not the connector coz it doesn't do the self diagnosis. thanks for all the responses so far.

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you aregood at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htmYou can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should workfine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one thesame way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

The power supply in the unit has died. This is a very common problem with this series of monitor after 2-3 years of use. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. Check out our step by step repair guide posted on our site at: www.ccl-la.com Our guide gives parts values and location information as well as how to open the unit up. If you don't feel like doing the repair we also offer repair services, see our web site for details.
