Dell E173FP 17" Monitor

I have a Dell LCD 17" monitor, it had always worked fine but today when it is turned on the button blinks gree and everytime it blinks there is a white light coming from the monitor but it does not display anything. The CPU continues working but there is no activity on the monitor. It also does this when I disconnect the cable that is connected to the computer and just leave the power supply.

    When I turn on the monitor it displays for approx. 2-3 seconds and then goes blank. Power light glows green, but no deisplay. Turn off/on monitor and can view for 2 seconds.

I just had the same problem as well - mine happened during a windows update, related? Also, for me the monitor doesn't come one even after disconnecting from computer, nothing, just blinking green light.

The backlight may have died. LCD monitors work by shining a light through the active diodes.
