Question about KDS K717s 17" LCD Monitor
This is a common problem across many monitors, unfortunately. The problem stems from one of two things, typically.
It is either the Power Inverter board (Inverter Mirage Electronics AD-1700 Rev:F 200-000-170DTL1 VERSION:A) or a weak or dying backlight.
If your monitor comes on for 2 seconds then you can test the backlight by using the controls to get into the backlight brightnes settings on the OSD and turning it WAY down.
If that dosen't work then it is likely bad capacitors on the Power board mentioned above. If you feel adventurous and know how to solder then you might be able to fix this yourself. You need to be careful however because you are dealing with high votage in there and capacitors CAN hold a charge long after you have unpluged the unit. You can read more about this power board as well as how to replace the bad caps HERE.
If that's not for you then I would recomend taking it to a local TV shop for them to fix. The parts shouldn't be more than $20, but labor can be expensive.
Or you could replace the monitor. You can get some nice ones from Newegg.com from around $100. Remember to recycle PC parts responsibly!
