Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
Hi, My dell LCD 17" monitor flashes white every second, and then goes black. The green LED also flashes orange. The only way I was able to make it temporairily stop was by giving it a good smack on the back of the monitor. Initially, it would only occur when the computer went into sleep mode, and then trying to come back, this would occur. As time passed, the flahing got worse to the point where every five minutes this would occur. I broke down and got a new one (the warrenty expired about 2 months before), but I would like to fix the monitor if at all possible without having to spend a lot of money. However, I do not know where to begin. I have it apart, but cant find any obvious problems. Hope someone can help!! Thanks in advance. Mike
Take a very good look at the power supply capacitors. Are any of the tops of the electrolytic capacitors domed? If you replace them, use a high frequency high temprature replacement to prevent a repeat failure. Don't use a standard 85 degree cap. It won't last.

Buy a new one PLEASE, HD monitor works best but the least expensive ones are smaller
