Please see my pictures so you will know what to check inside the monitor: Very common problem for this series.
http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Dell%20E173FPb/

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Dell Blinking Power Light


Hi There,
I have worked on several of the Dell 17" and that is almost always the Capacitor problem.

The caps have died inside, and they can be replaced. If you have basic electronics skills, you can go in, order replacement caps, and unsolder and resolder. If you can't do it yourself, you can take it into a shop.

If you can get inside the frame of the monitor, and disassemble, you can find the caps by seeing a bulge on top, or even a rusty looking material on the top. Be VERY careful around the high voltage section if you do go inside.

Here is a link to the Cap plague that explains what happens in detail. But I repair these all the time with that symptom.

My monitor (Dell, 17", flat screen, about 2 years old)has recently started changing colors spontaneously. This happens whether the computer is on or not. It cycles through a bright yellow screen to bight...


they can do this if the monitor is shorting its self, might just need a dust out with a paint brush, while you have the back of the monitor check the main-av-power board and look for signs of weak capacitors this can also cause the same faults.

Dell 17" lcd manufactured 2004 wont turn on.


Well first off if its that old the warranty is up im sure. Second they won't deal with you since you are not the one who bought it. I'm sorry I had a similar problem to that altho I had bought the screen and it did the same thing a week after the warranty was up.

Please disconnect the Monitor Data cable from Computer.
If you see Dell Colored bars, it means, monitor is working fine,
If still black, please ask for replacement, since Monitors have 3 years of warranty if not purchased with the computer.

Now connect the cable back to computer and turn the computer off by holding the power button on computer and turn it back on...

Blinking Green shows that computer is in sleep mode......

Hope this should resolve the issue.

Dell E172FP 17 monitor keeps blinking


That sounds like the backlight inverter board. Check ebay for the board or a repair kit for it.
