Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
Hi, Whenever I turn on my monitor it displays the computers output briefly (~half a second) before going blank. I have tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result so it is definetaly not a computer problem. The power light on the front of the monitor stays green when the screen goes blank. Whenever I turn the power off and back on again the exact same thing happens. Help please!!
You need to either buy a new inverter board, or if you are competant with soldering onto boards, you need to replace the c5707 transisters at points q740, q739, q760 and q759 on the larger board. best place really for the replacement c5707s is ebay

I had the same problem. I found recommendations here and on other sites that I needed a new backlight inverter / power supply. I found exactly what I needed at this site: http://www.lcdrepair.us/ part number: E173FPCPWR. The have pictures of the exact card you need you need to by. Mine cost $50 plus shipping ($14.69) (ugh!) I just installed it today and it's working great. You need to feel comfortable popping the back of your monitor and working with little screws and connectors. You may find the part cheaper online. Sure beats buying a new monitor.

Sounds like the inverter board or lamps are bad
