Sounds like the monitor is bad... probably just a bad capacitor. Just try another monitor, if you can borrow one, to confirm.

LCD monitor turns off


I have had the same problem as others seem to have had with the dell flat panel. After leaving the screen on for some time, the monitor brightens for a moment, then goes black, while the green light stays on. When I reboot, it works again for some time, or if I remove the cable for a few minutes and plug it back in (with monitor turned off) it will come back on...only to repeat the black screen. I have changed the power features, screen resolution, downloaded updated drivers from dell, and viewed dells troubleshooting advice on the monitor cd that came with the computer. Nothing directly advises on this problem, but I have read here and in other online message boards the exact same problem. Anyone able to fix this?

I have a Dell 1707fp monitor. When I power the monitor on it powers on normally. After a few miniutes, even though the power button is still green the display goes blank. I have tested this on other known...


I just fixed my for less then 1 minute. Here was the problem, when turn on the PC with the monitor connected. The screen appear like normal for about 2 seconds then shut off black but the GREEN power LED stay on, if i press the power off and turn it back on the screen act the same thing.
Here how to fix it, turn off the PC, unplug the monitor power cable then plug it back. The power LED will stay amber. Hold down both brights minus - and plus + same time, turn on the PC, keep hold the - and + buttons press the power button turn on the monitor.
You will see the screen back on, just hold for about 10 more seconds till you see the screen seem to stay on fine then realse them. That's it how i fixed my.....GOOD LUCK

Hp flat panel monitor comes on shows logon and then blank screen


Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on?
If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps.
If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

The screen went black after few seconds.


Hello Chris,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the strip on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

If it worked on a computer at the IT person, it is most likely a faulty graphics card in your computer. You may want to get that checked out.

Video cards that can handle two monitors at the same time have cables with two plugs on the monitor end.

If your video cable has two plugs on the monitor end, try the other plug.

Dell Monitor won't stay on


When it goes black, does the power buton stay green or is it orange? If it's orange, the power supply/inverter is your main culprit. If the power button stays green, it sounds like the backlight for the display is bad. Either way, unless you have parts for the same monitor laying around to swap out, you're due for a new monitor. The good news- with the economy in the tank, you can search online and find some reputable vendors selling nicely sized screens for less than $100! Heck, I've even seen a 22" for $129 (once but it was there).
