Question about Dell 1703FPs 17" TFT LCD Flat Panel Monitor
Semosmt, Your monitor's internal electronic "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter supply" fails to sustain output of high voltage to the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" (2) that are hung on the reverse side of the glass LCD panel that you look at. Learn how to perform the "flashlight" test and interpret the results! Is your LCD panel "black" or is it both "black and "blank"??? If free warranty service from DELL not an option, then you should ask DELL about a cash+old unit swapout for a refurbished unit with new inverter/ccfl lamps. If that not option, you or a qualified electronics technician will need to inspect and repair your unit!If you need to visually SEE just what is inside a typical CCFL backlit LCD monitor, then go visit YOUTUBE and check-out the longer and more informative video clips of "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" !!! Moses, remember this: Your monitor is NO DIFFERENT than any other BRAND ( LG, Acer, Samsung,Gateway) in it's BASIC design and operation!!!! There is a very good chance that your monitor can be repaired because you stated "displays the desktop" in your complaint!!! YOU need to do more READING to fully understand the root cause of your need to visit FIXYA in the first place! Do your research first before you do anything. I hope this was of some help. 12fixlouie bye for now.
