Question about Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
Try it with another PC as a stand alone monitor, if it still does not work, then read on. Basic LCD monitor troubleshooting guide:
Check the fuse in the inverter for less than one Ohm as shown on my albums, also check the caps, transistors, solder joints.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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 DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
