It has shorted out transistors in the inverter circuits, check them out first, also check the fuse in the inverters section.
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 monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

    I had the same problem and I finally figured it out.

    Keep in mind this is not a permanent solution, but if you are in a hurry or can't afford a new monitor right now, this is the way to fix it.

    If the monitor is too cold, literally, in terms of temperature, (I suppose the transistors can't charge up enough) it won't start up or will take ages to warm up. The solution is to heat up the monitor, by, for example putting it in the sun (or in oven at around less than 50 degrees celsius) for a while, and then after connecting it again, it should power up in less than 5 minutes, which in most cases is better than waiting 5 hours. An even better alternative is to keep the temperature of the room the monitor is in quite warm, and then it will always power up relatively quickly, taking around 0-5 at around 20-25 degrees celsius. I swear it works.

Describe your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor Problem The monitor seems to be turning itself repeatedly on and off. No picture is ever seen, the screen stays black with a slight flicker.


Sounds like the monitor is cycling power.
Try plugging the monitor into a different power socket. Try not to use the same power bar as your computer

Flashing power LED light means you may have shorted (Emitter to Collector) out transistors (c5707) or bad fuse (fuse has high resistance) PF751. Those are what you need to check. see pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Dell%20E173FPb/

Plug Dell e173fpb monitor in power light blinks green and small buzz noise


Hello,

Based on what you have stated your Dell monitor is dead. Seek support/replacement under warranty. If you purchase this with a credit card you have a double warranty through your credit card. You'll have to suffer through Dell's phone support to allow them to troubleshoot your dead monitor but be patient and a new or newer model will be on its way to you soon.

Hope this helped you and fixed your dilemma.
