I have a Dell E173FP 17 inch Flat Panel LCD Monitor. About two weeks ago after having turned it off at night (leaving the PC on) then turning the monitor back on in the morning it would light up to half of...

The monitor can be repaired - by replacing one or both the fluorescent tube and inverter. You can have the work done for you - or you can attempt it yourself. Lamp prices vary based on size - but most hover in the $10 range. Inverters can vary in price too - but run more than lamps for the most part. There are numerous suppliers for these parts such as this and instructions about how to do it such as this.

I hope this helps! Please rate my reply - thanks!

Computer monitor all black but power is on.

Check to see that monitor is turned on, power cord is connected. Check to see that video cable is connected to computer. Verify that monitor's power light is on.
If it's still black with power on, you may have settings that have to be changed on the monitor.

Black screen, power light flashes green

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

The monitor comes on and then goes black.

Sounds like your LCD panel lamps are shutting down, this could be either due bad tubes, or more likely lamp driver power supply is faulty.

Goes out

Please list the model number of your monitor.
Also is the power light flashing? What color(s)?

Unfortunately the symptoms you are describing tell me the inverter/power board inside your monitor needs to be replaced.
