Question about Dell UltraSharp 1704FPT 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I have a dell flatpanel that turns on and off repeatedly. You never get to see the actual video feed though. Holding the power does nothing, it just continues to blink from green to off. I opened it up and looked around to see if there was anything obvious. I saw a couple larger capacitors (not the one by the entry of AC, but a bit further on, past the transformer on the same board) that were bulging a bit at the top which I thought could mean bad ones. Maybe it caught a power surge? Anyway, I'm not sure if replacing those will fix it so I'm curious if anyone has suggestions.
Yeah, try plugging the unit into another computer to see if it's doing the same thing. That will help you to determine if it's the monitor or the video card. Next, see if replacing either the power cable or video cable (I'm assuming you're using the analog and not the digital connection, here...) to see if it might be a pin that's loose, dropping the signal strength enough to lose the feed.
