Hello,

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:
www.ccl-la.com If you can solder them you should be able to do the repair yourself. If you don't want to do the repair we do offer a repair service for $30 plus return shipping. Let us know if you have any questions about the repair, you can contact us at the address below.

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.

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. I'm 12fix louie on fixya aka louie12fix If this was of some help to you, please rate this response on fixya.

Check and make sure your connections on the back of the PC are snug...and make sure you have a good connection at the back of the monitor.

Nothing comes up on the screen


The monitor connected to the system is set to receive video signals from the DVI port on the video card and it is not getting a signal.

Possible Causes:
  1. Monitor is connected via VGA (Blue Connector). Fix by using the input select button to select DVI input)
  2. The video cable is not connected to the correct port on the system (Or not connected at all)
  3. The monitor is on, but the tower is not powering on or failing to complete the Power On Self-Test (POST). It the power LED on the tower is NOT on, or solid or flashing Amber then the tower is not posting. Flashing amber is normally a bad power supply, solid amber is the motherboard.

Is the card plugged into the (PCI/AGP) slot correctly? Did you disable the onboard video in the bios? Also be sure to check in windows device manager and check for the graphics card to appear there.
