Dell Touch screen comes on for seconds and goes off

I have a dell touch screen with an internal power supply, and when I turn it on it comes on for a couple of seconds and then goes off. I am thinking it is the power supply, inside the touch screen. Is it the power supply and how can I get it fixed? Is it something I can do myself? I am handy at repairs. Dennisboldt

Dell xps touch sreen just blinking blue light but blank screen

Sounds like it went to sleep due to low battery power. May be time for a new battery if it isn't holding charge well.

Plug it into the wall and push the power button once. It may come back on. If not...

Hold the power button down until the machine shuts off completely. If that doesn't work, remove the battery.
