Question about Computers & Internet
Dell 1702FP monitor is frozen. Video Select lights are flashing green and power button is flashing amber. Thanks
The problem on the Dell 1702FP monitor when they have the 3 blinking light symptoms is the video driver board. You will need to replace 4 capacitors on the board and then it will be good as new. We have a step by step guide to the repair poted on our web site at:

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc. It can be the shorted transistors in the inverter circuit also.
Please post back what you find.

Biljet, If you move the unit to a different pc, or swap-in a KNOWN GOOD monitor to prove your pc is working perfectly, then your monitor will need to have some work done on it's power supply to get the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps " to light-up again. Don't feel bad about it! 25 to 50 of these things get struck down every day of the year (all brands) with what has become known as "the BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH" If you are not skilled with basic use of a soldering iron with a fine point tip, you will do one of the following: Trade up to new wide screen lcd and the store technician will put in $4-$6 in parts into your monitor and use it at his house for a spare. He may even want to sell it back to you for $40 so you will have a spare LCD on hand. Then again You might contact DELL and see if they have a cash+old swapout program that will get you a REFURBISHED unit to use. Or you will contract out the work to a local TV/monitor repair shop that knows all about "cold-cathode-fluorescent lamps" and their power source called an "inverter circuit", which gets powered from the "switch-mode-power-supply". All these things must function to produce WHITE LIGHT so you can see WHAT is on the LCD panel. If you need more info on how to do the work yourself then get back to fixya with a comment to your original post. Bye for now.
