Question about Dell UltraSharp 1701FP 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
My Dell 1701FP monitor is acting very weird. After using the monitor for a long time (months) without having any problem occur this suddenly happens: the screen starts to flash and flicker and after doing so for a little while it goes black. If i leave it off for a moment and then restart it it'll do the same thing after a short time and again go black. The strangest thing is that if I leave it and don't use it for a long time, and then later plug it in again, it'll work like a charm again (for, as it seems, a limited period of time). Anyone knows why?
Hello, My name is Richard; I am part of Dells Online Community Outreach group. Solution 1 is good as the inverter may be going out. The inverter lights up the screen for the picture to be displayed, other wise you would only be able to see very dark shadows. In the end it would be a good idea to call our technical support at 1-800-822-8965 and find out if the monitor is still under warrantee. Or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, place attention Richard in the subject line. We can assist you in determining what the issue is and help apply a solution. Regards, Richard

Just to check - when the screen is black- can you see any image- in its un-illuminated state. To do this look sideways along the screen not straight at it. I suspect this is an inverter problem. Whether or not this is repairable I know not- depending on your local repair facilities Perhaps DELL can suggest a local agent.
