Question about Dell UltraSharp 1704FPT 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Display lights up then quickly goes dark

I googled this problem a while back, and somehow I found an article saying that this is a frequent problem with the backlight inverter with this model, but have been unable to find anything about the problem since. What happens is, when I turn it on, the display will quickly flash what I should be seeing, then it goes dark.

It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems. With the computer on and the monitor power LED green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. If you do see the ?Start? button then either your backlight tube is bad or more often the inverter board is bad. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

Trump did he say that employers have the right to fire gays


"Say", in the case of Donald Trump, is a difficult term to use when trying to pin down the "Donald" in terms of policy. A quick google search finds him saying many pro-LGBTQ type policy statements. However, a quick Google search is, also rife with examples of anti-LGBTQ policies in action. So it partially depends on what you mean by say. If you mean him personally, I, at least, found no evidence of him saying anything of the sort. If on the other hand you consider the voice of his administration, particularly the justice department, as part of his voice as President of the United States of America, then the answer is an unequivocal yes. I will refer you to the following article:

My casio protrek 2500t watch is in power saving mode but even after keeping in dark for hours between 10pm and 6 am the display does not go off.Please help.


I own the same PRW-2500-1A (all black).Check if under the hours reading, PS appears.If yes,power saving function is activated.
Normally, Power Saving Function is enabled automatically (if activated) if the watch stays in complete dark for sometime.If after a couple of hours in the dark the watch comes suddenly under bright light,the display goes on immediately.Hour interval (10pm-6am) has nothing to do with Power Saver.
Try the following:
a)Deactivate and reactivate (or vice versa) the PS.
b)Leave the watch in the dark for a couple of hours .Then,still in the dark,try,using a very low power light (just that you can,barely read) to check if display is blank.If not you may have a problem with the light sensor found at the bottom of the display.Will be a very rare case but you have to take the watch to a CASIO authorized service.

Denon DVD player light comes on, displays model name, then goes blank. I can feel the unit running when I place my hand on it, but no picture and no display where it usually says "welcome", etc.


Often these faults are caused by failed/failing electrolytic capacitors in the DVD players power supply. frequently they are swollen or have their tops split open. If you are skilled with a soldering iron and can work safely on electrical equipment it's often a quick job to check/ replace them. If not, it's best to take the DVD player to a service center for repair.

Power light goes out but power remains thru the m-board fan runs


you need to replace the power supply. The fan sound is the fan for the power supply and not the computer. for cheap parts or used goto headgap's. They know what you need and probably even help you replace it yourself.

It would seem, somehow, your graphics driver was corrupted. The only thing to do is re-install graphics drivers. These can be found with a quick Google Search: CLICK ME

The first link, to DriversCollection.com, looks promising. This one is for Windows Vista or XP, but you need to specify on the tabs near the top of the page. Make sure you download the correct driver, as this page includes other drivers. You're looking for "Graphics Driver" [Vista] or "Video Driver" [XP].

Hope this works for you.

Find yourself a dark room or wait for the night to come. The darkest monitor adjustment could somehow reveal some light when there are no other light source available.

You may also hook a conventional CRT monitor and make your changes (such as bringing your computer back to its original settings). The darkest adjustment in CRT monitor could still render discernible displays.
