Question about Dell UltraSharp 1701FP 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Power on issue

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 had the same thing happen recently.
I wish it was better news but It's a Capacitor that's burning out.
For myself, I just grabbed another monitor from my garage but I did look up the problem first and found video's on how to fix the problem.
It requires some soldering and a little talent along those lines.
I have no doubt I could do it, I just didn't feel like doing it then.
At the bottom of this post is one link to a DIY Fix it vid.
Another option is to find a used monitor.
Of course there are sites like E-Bay or Craig's that you could try but there is a recycle site that people give things away and take things on, called (freecycle).
This is a great site, I've used it in both directions many times with no problems.
NOTE: Use common sense.
I recommend that anytime your going to meet someone from the web you don't know that you take someone with you or at the very least tell someone exactly where you going and any other pertinent info.
Here are the 2 links I mentioned

SOURCE: Monitor (Dell 1701FP) flickers, flashes and goes black

Hello, My name is Richard; I am part of Dells Online Community Outreach group. Solution 1 is good as the inverter may be going out. The inverter lights up the screen for the picture to be displayed, other wise you would only be able to see very dark shadows. In the end it would be a good idea to call our technical support at 1-800-822-8965 and find out if the monitor is still under warrantee. Or you can email me at customer_advocate@dell.com, place attention Richard in the subject line. We can assist you in determining what the issue is and help apply a solution. Regards, Richard

SOURCE: blinking monitor power button and flashing image

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.

SOURCE: blinking monitor power button and flashing image

I buy and sell these monitors (Dell E17FP) the problem is with the transisters (Q739, Q740, Q759, Q760) they short out and the monitor will just blink on and off. You have to desolder them and test them with a simple battery and light circuit. The reason they blow is because of the dirty solder joints by the transformers. If only on pair of backlights work the problem maybe transisters Q751, Q743. I home this answers your questions.

SOURCE: Monitor is black. Press power on monitor/screen shows for 1 sec

We have the same problem and think that the monitor may be getting too warm with staying on all of the time. Try to turn off the monitor when you arent using it. It might save you some time while you look for another monitor.

How do i test power on a dell flatscreen 1701fp. I have tested the power adapter and it is working and outputting the correct voltage. The monitor itself will not power on, I have disassembled and looked...


Since you cannot power on the monitor with the power switch on the monitor, then it can be the power supply or the logic board, or the inverter has shorted circuits so it makes the power supply go into shutdown mode.
This monitor uses 14vdc 3A power supply, so what you can do is to verify that you do have 14vdc at the DC input jack with monitor in the OFF mode, then try turn on the monitor to see if the 14vdc drops down to lower than 12vdc or so.
The inverter board has fuse also.
I do not have the pictures of the board for this monitor, but if you can post the pictures, then it will help a lot.
Does the inverter board look like this? http://www.badcaps.net/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=12595&d=1259317517
At this point I will concentrate why the monitor will not turn on first, you can disconnect the ribbon cables attached to the inverter board and see if the monitor will power up.

I have lost the original power supply for my dell 1701fp monitor. I have a power supply that I think may work as a substitute until I can replace the original. I need to know, what the acceptable voltage...


What ever you use, it must be REGULATED power supply that will maintain 14vdc output, rating at 3A. These regulated power supply can easily maintain the output voltage within +/- 5% with input AC voltage range from 100~240vac.
Linear regulator power supply may not work since it has slow response time to regulate the voltage.

Monitor will not turn on including power switch


I suspect the power supply for the monitor. Try a power supply from a working monitor. If you have a used computer store nearby, take your power supply to them and try it on another monitor.

There is no need to turn off a monitor using its power switch. Monitors automatically go into standby mode when they are not receiving a signal. In standby mode they use less than one cent of electricity per day. If saving electricity is your goal, raise the temperature in your home by a degree and run the air conditioning less.

Monitor (Dell 1701FP) flickers, flashes and goes black


Just to check - when the screen is black- can you see any image- in its un-illuminated state. To do this look sideways along the screen not straight at it. I suspect this is an inverter problem. Whether or not this is repairable I know not- depending on your local repair facilities Perhaps DELL can suggest a local agent.
