1 Answer

Screeen comes on --then goes blank

I purchased a used Dell 1703FP because it was similar to a 1704 FTP I already own. The light powers the monitor on and the color bars appear for a split second...then it goes blank.

Your inverter circuit is faulty. This controls the lights inside the screen so you can see what is happening on the LCD panel itself.
If you shine a torch into the LCD from the top at an angle you will still see the images on the screen. But with no light inside to project it outwards, it's dark.

A local TV repair shop should be able to do the reprair fairly cheap, but it's best to make a few phone calls and check they will work on an LCD monitor firstly, and secondly a rough quote.
This is a very common fault with LCD monitors.

Hope that helps =)

Up to my knowledge, controls are mostly intuitive. Monitors have some buttons under lover right border, where you can manipulate some properties. Search for them.

I have a Dell 1704 FPVt monitor I use it in conjunction with an touch board with a monitor split cable. when I plug the team board in the dell monitor goes blank. It doesn't do this with the old m


Isolate the problem per above. Eliminate the monitor, split cable and software settings so that each, individually work. Then eliminate team board - do you have a spare?
It could mean sharing the monitor signal means weakens it so that one can display and the other does not work. Prove it with a different source computer. Don't know if buffer devices exist or how to increase input sensitivity.

Dell 1704 monitor goes to black screen after one


Hi my name is Rain.
Ok so that im clear on the problem. your monitor will come on but in a matter of seconds it goes to a black screen?
If this is the problem. The answers you seek will most likely
be in your video card.
Try this test:
  • Unplug monitor from the computer.
  • Turn on monitor .
  • Look for monitor self test screen.
If you see the monitors self test screen then your problem indeed is
the video card . You will need to replace the video card inside of the computer.

Dell 1703FP monitor issue


reduce the hardware acceleration on it. I resolved it by reducing acceleration and changing my screen size. It works. I wanted higher resolution but it doesn't seem to be possible for some reason.
Good luck.

Dell 1704 FPTt monitor goes black after about 20 min


Go to Start, Control Panel, Power Options and change your monitor setting to never turn off. If you do leave your monitor on all the time then you should set up a screen saver.

Blank after 2 seconds


This is most probably cause by one or more Faulty Electrolytic Capacitors, I find these are the MOST commonest form of "Fault" in these LCD's TFT's units. I ususally simply replace "On Spec" all High Value Electros, in fact ALL Electro's are suspect and often I just "Shotgun" and replace 'em all. Usually fixes all problems. Always use High Temperature Caps.
