Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
This must be caused by a bad or damaged capacitor(s) on the Inverter board (power supply board). The only solution is to replace the defective capacitors. To do this, you'll need some electronic tools like soldering iron, soldering wire/paste, etc.. and most of all the capacitors with the exact Unit. You'll need to refer to the one on the board for the unit, it should be written on the capacitor itself as "?" followed by the value. Actually this is related to backlight, but since backlight shows up and you could see the picture for a short period, then the reason is behind the regulators, means the capacitors. If you have idea how to solder or how to remove the soldered components, go ahead and replace them. You'll be easily able to identify them, bulged or exploded or broken.... If you don't know how to use and how to disassemble the monitor, I don't recommend as you might damage other components which will cause another bigger issue. I hope you understand.
If you need further help, let me know.
