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 Gateway monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

The top part (about one third) of my SyncMaster 920LM screen is brighter than the rest and seems to retain simultaneously the new and the previous picture for 2 to 3 seconds before it gradually fades out...


This is usually do to a section of your controller chips dying. This is not fixable by the end user, the only thing I could say to try is to try different resolutions to see if you can reduce the issue.

I would try your monitor on another computer to see if it works and/or try a CRT monitor on your computer and reinstall the video card drivers. I have seen a big issue with this lately where the video card drivers are getting corupted. When this happens the computer sends a signal out of range to the monitor causing it to turn off so it does not get damaged.

If your monitor does work on another computer and you need help reinstalling your video card drivers let me know.

Dell E173FP shows nothing


The backlight may have died. LCD monitors work by shining a light through the active diodes.

Power light blinks but the screen is black and won't come on.


is it an LCD monitor?
if so then it's more than likely the backlight tubes or the backlight tubes inverter supply has died is it fixable but i am not sure how much it will cost you at your local repairer and monitors are so cheap these days its probably not worth it!
hope this helps,ben

The monitor turns off and on repeatedly.


does sound like a power supply issue... they are fixable but it's somewhat involved.
