Try the monitors connections first, then try the monitor on some other computer (try the other cables as well).

If the connections fix the problem - all OK.
If it works on some other computer - then it is not the monitor, more likely the video card. If this is the case - replace the video card.

If the monitor still does not work on another computer, then send it in for inspection and repair (is it still in Warranty?) or purchase a new one (expensive).

By the way, I don't know what you expect to do once you get inside the monitor (unless you are an Electronics Engineer by Trade which I doubt from your question).

Good luck, and please post a response so I can see if anything worked.

Hi there! You can test first if the monitor is working. Disconnect it from the computer then turn it on after that it should show you colors on the screen this means its working if not then its no use trying it on a different computer.


Hope this helps!

Most common failure in this model is shorted transistors in the inverter circuits caused by poor solder connections, see pictures here for guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Dell%20E173FPb/

Screen comes on for less than one second & then goes black.


Possibly  your monitor inverter is broken, have a good look in some angel if the screen shows any picture if so then your inverter is broken. Its a common think with monitors.

Screen goes black, but power light is on (not blinking)


The problem is not with your screen. Its the problem of Video Card of your system which is unable to send Video Signals to the Screen.

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.
