Question about Computers & Internet
It is the right age for failure---IF you are able look inside at the power supply for bad caps---I will attach photos of what to look for.
The three tries is what is called a three strikes and you are out (no joke)----the unit has built into it (many do) a feature where it will try 3 times to make it up and on and if fails shuts down or stops trying.

This is the common bad capacitor problem. The caps have died inside, and they can be replaced. If you have basic electronics skills, you can go in, order replacement caps, and unsolder and resolder. If you can't do it yourself, you can take it into a shop.
Here is a link to the Cap plague that explains what happens in detail. But I repair these all the time with that symptom.

Definitely a problem with the monitor. If you can get the back open
then look at the main board and the power board. You will want to look
for puffy capacitors. Instead of a flat top it will look puffy like its
If you find any like that then you need to replace them with new capacitors that have the same Uf rating and at least the same voltage or higher.
This will take some unsoldering and soldering skills. Make sure the stiped edge gets aligned with the striped edge on the board.
If you replaced them then the monitor should turn back on. If it doesn't then its a screen problem and you'll need to get a new monitor.

Hi you can inspect that what's wrong with your monitors. After you turned it on and the
screen went black, you have to check that if you can see the image on the
screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find
the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the
icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps
inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you
cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter
board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by
yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show
leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have
soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If
anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.

I buy and sell these monitors (Dell E17FP) the problem is with the transisters (Q739, Q740, Q759, Q760) they short out and the monitor will just blink on and off. You have to desolder them and test them with a simple battery and light circuit. The reason they blow is because of the dirty solder joints by the transformers. If only on pair of backlights work the problem maybe transisters Q751, Q743. I home this answers your questions.
