Question about Dell ST2310 23 inch LCD Monitor
I bought a refurbished Dell ST2310 and after a month it started giving me dim display.. after keeping it on for 2 minutes it start acting like switching between 100% brightness to 20% brightness repeatedly with no uniform pattern.. i disassembled the lcd monitor and plugged the power cord in and placed the lcd up side down (not intentionally), it was working fine untill unless i flipped it back to its normal position.. so i found by repeating the process few times that my lcd is working absolutely fine upside down.. please tell me what the reason and is there any user replaceable part in it so i can get it fixed ? thanks, many regards, Basit Zia

The problem may be a loose connection. When I turn on my monitor, the green light blinks and a flickering white screen appears for a brief second every time. There must be a loose connection on the power board which may be causing this. The easiest solution is to tap at the back of the monitor. This will reconnect the loose end and the monitor will work fine until it gets disconnected again. I will open my monitor soon to find the real problem. But it will take some time to find it.

Hate to criticize and then not help out. I have this exact same problem with one of my E152 Dell Displays. I have read around and this whole line of displays seemed to have trouble. I found many issues like this and no solutions.
So, I like to tinker and tinker i did. I opened the case, removed the screen and went straight to the power supply board where I found two burned out capacitors.
Value Voltage Diameter Height
1000uF 16v 10mm 16mm
Found a great source for replacement parts and instruction to replace the caps at BadCaps.net
Let you know how it goes.

Your monitor has a bad power supply board. This happens often on LCD monitors because of the heat buildup in them. If you can solder them go to our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm We have a step by step dis-assembly and repair guide for your monitor. There are several versions of the E173FP some end in b , f, or c so be sure to check your monitor.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

It's most likely a couple of the eletrolytic capacitors on the power supply board. This type of cap can go bad over time, and that would lead to the symptoms worsening over time like yours has. It's mostly likely a couple of 10V, 100uF caps in my experience. They should be easy to identify: they will be the ones with the top bulging upwards. Replace those and you should be good to go! If there aren't any bulging caps, just replace all the 100uf caps. (there should be no more than 5)
If you attempt this yourself though be carefull: any caps that haven't gone bad can hold a charge even when the monitor is powered off. Depending on the capacitor of the cap, accidentally contacting the leads on a charged cap can be anywhere from painfull to dangerous! A preventative measure is using an insulated handle screwdriver, short both leads of the cap together on the backside of the board to drain the cap.
