    exact same problem as justin4449's. My solution was to call Dell Tech support and they sent me a new monitor. Old one was 31 months old.

I have the same problem and have been told this is a failed backlight inverter if you can use a flashlight and still see images on the screen. I can find one online for model 1703 but not the 1704. Still looking for a source for it. Replacing the inverter requires almost total disassembly of the monitor so be sure you want to spend that much on it. Good luck.

My AOC screen goes black after about a few seconds after booting.


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer or service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

If there is still about ? 24. Volts coming from the Power Board when it goes dark, it will be the Inverter board that needs replacing. If not, it is the Power Board that needs replacing. The Voltages should be written next to the sockets & plugs on the Power Board.

My picture goes blank


One of two things, the backlight inverter board is going bad (usually has open winding on the transformers), second, the 24vdc power supply section of the main power supply module is bad due to bad filter capacitors.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
