How do i test power on a dell flatscreen 1701fp. I have tested the power adapter and it is working and outputting the correct voltage. The monitor itself will not power on, I have disassembled and looked...

Since you cannot power on the monitor with the power switch on the monitor, then it can be the power supply or the logic board, or the inverter has shorted circuits so it makes the power supply go into shutdown mode.
This monitor uses 14vdc 3A power supply, so what you can do is to verify that you do have 14vdc at the DC input jack with monitor in the OFF mode, then try turn on the monitor to see if the 14vdc drops down to lower than 12vdc or so.
The inverter board has fuse also.
I do not have the pictures of the board for this monitor, but if you can post the pictures, then it will help a lot.
Does the inverter board look like this?
At this point I will concentrate why the monitor will not turn on first, you can disconnect the ribbon cables attached to the inverter board and see if the monitor will power up.

LG Flatron L194WT Monitor no power

It can be as simple $5 worth of caps in the power supply.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, 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 LG monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Cant close the Menu Box from the Monitor

More like to be bad Flash ROM in the logic board is scrambled (not much you can do unless the firmware can be reloaded). You can try looking inside for such thing as bad caps on the logic board and the power supply/inverter board just for luck.

Backlight Fizzle

Look at the power supply first for bad caps, the transistors for back light inverter may have been damaged also when the caps went out. See example of failed monitors due to bad caps:

When I turn on my monitor it flashes on for a second then the screen goes black, why is it doing this?

its the problem of back light supporting inverter board.if its a LCD monitor then only its inverter board problem.but if its a normal monitor not lcd one then its the problem of power supply board.
you can get the inverter as well as power supply board at
or at local computer part store in your area.
the cost of power supply board is near to $65 and cost of inverter board is $35.
