Question about Philips 170V6FB (Black) 17" Monitor
Philips 170V lcd screen steadily blinks on and off even when not connected to a pc. Both screen and power led blink. Resolves itself at random from anywhere between 20 minutes to several hours later

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

I would open it up and inspect the capacitors in the power supply section first since it is simple thing to do, look for bad caps with bulging top or seal, see failed monitors (common problem) due to bad caps:
