Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

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 1908 FTP Monitor turns on and shows picture but in just a few seconds then goes black

check all connections. then separate the wiring so it doesn't touch. sometimes the cross-talk caused by wires touching can reroute the signals. good luck.

Monitor comes on for a split second , and then off

Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed Dell monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong:

Dell tv/monitor picture goes blank after 1 second upon power-up

The synchro transistor has died. The only option is to have it repaired. Just had it happen to mine, can't tell you thye cost yet though as I have a loan monitor while dell fix it. Of course they will find more than 1 item i bet. But a tch who works for samsunhg looked at it and told me it would need to have a new sync transistor. Because its dell he wouldnt touch it.

I have A "Dell" E152FPc, and I have found an open transistor (Q201) on the Power Supply Board. My monitor comes on nice and bright for approximately 2 seconds, then goes dark; the power LED is steady. The voltage to the PWM IC is waky.
Before you try any hardware troubleshooting go to your control panel and turn off any power management options.
