Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
Computer is left on 24 hours per day. Dell XPS400 with Dell A5501 screen. Three years old. Was working fine. Suddenly screen looked darker and then went blank. Press the power button on monitor and screen flashes on for 1 sec and then goes black.
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.

You will need a new monitor screen. I have had two screens go on me recently and what you describes normally happens
