Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
I have a dell flat panel monitor. After turining it off this weekend It wont turn on anymore. The power light does not come on in any color and the screen remained blank. I took the backing off and with a volt meter checked to see if I was getting juice to the on/off button. I found that I did have juice (about 2-3 volts, the needle kept jumping?) Also, when I made the connection with the volt meter, I noticed the monitor screen had a subtle flash. Do you have any idea of what could be wrong? Any suggetions on what should be replaced and how to fix would be great.
The problem is with the power supply.Check the capacitors to see if any of them are shot. This is the number one reason monitors dont turn on. It is very unlikely that the video chip is the problem.

You should have a 5v line and a 12v line. I would suspect that the power supply is bad or the is something shorted that is shutting down the power supply and making it cycle. Check out www.lcdrepair.us for instructional videos and parts for all dell units.
