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