Dell 1702FP 'tearing' after warmup

I have a Dell 1702FP flatscreen. It works great.... for 15-20 minutes. Then the left side of the screen starts 'tearing' away. Eventually the whole screen is unreadable. If I shut it off til it cools, it's fine again. I've read the 'Replace Capacitors' solution, but not sure that it will help. Has anyone else seen the problem I've described?? and have a solution?? Thanks, sirlansa

It might be a failing electrlytic or a heat-related issue with a transistor in the power supply, or it may be a problem in the video board. Sounds like will need good old-fashioned component-level troubleshooting.

Cant power on unit

Please verify that you do have 14vdc coming out of the AC adapter, the problem can also be at the DC input jack due to crack solder joints. If you do get the power light on the monitor to come on but the screen is black, then the problem can be in the inverter board.

I have a flat screen monitor. when i power up the screen the yellow light flash with two others lights. also i hear a click like the screen trying to power on. the model number for this product is 1702fp


This model has a know problem with parts called capacitors shorting out and causing the flashing that you have. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. If you go to our web site at: and click on the monitor repair section I will post a step by step guide to the repair for you. You will need to replace 2 capacitors and yo should be back running again. Check after 12/09/09 at 2:00pm and the guide should be posted.

I hope this helps, f so please rate our solution.

Dell 1702FP gets off automatically or lose power by itself!

i think the power cord to your monitor is not fixed tightly. check the connections. or else the power On / Off button could have got damaged. replace it with the new one. if still the problem exists, servicing of the monitor will be the solution to it.
please rate my solution.
have a nice day.

Dell monitor black screen

If you have another monitor for desktop hook other monitor up then under hardware and software in control panel, add the dell monitor, then hook it up. Some operating systems need the driver to be added first. My brother almost threw away agood dell lcd monitor before I told him this, now he loves the lcd, works great.
