Check to see if the image is Dimmed. Chances are the power supply on the FPD is either dead or not supplying power to the back lights.
Your problem is the power supply or the inverter on your board, you can replace it and it will be fixed.

(inverter is what supplies power to your backlights. A lot of the times the reason a monitor goes black and the green power button is on, is because the backlights shut off. in most designs of the 1730 the inverter is embedded on the power supply. That is most often the case on this problem. Power supply/Inverter=Replace it and you will have a spanking new looking nice monitor working again. :)

My flatron L1710S flat screen will not come out of power saving mode. When I turn on the monitor the power button/light is green for a few seconds, the screen indicated "power saving mode", then...


I switch on my PC, ensuring that all cables, leads and power supplies are connected properly. The tower powers up no problems at all. I switch the screen on, the green led lights up, the screen is completely black. A blue box appears centrally on the screen with the text 'power saving mode'. The green led light turns amber and then the screen just goes black.

Please don't suggest going to control panel, as I can't get that far.

PLEASE PLEASE CAN ANYONE SUGGEST ANYTHING give me

I defragged my computer, restarted, and now my monitor won't come on. When on button pushed, get a green power light but the monitor stays black - cannot get anything on screen :( Helllllpppp!


Please try booting with your windows DVD and see if you screen loads, on that boot DVD you should see an option to repair install, try that. But if after booting to your DVD you see your screen come up, just try a regular restart again before doing a system repair.

Make sure that your computer isn't going into Standby or Hibernate mode. You can test this by briefly pressing the power button and wait to see if the screen comes back on.

Monitor comes on, I can see everything perfect then goes black


"Most" newer monitors will let you know if the are no longer receiving a signal. Sounds like the backlight is burnt out. Try getting a bright (LED works best) flashlight and shining it at the screen at all angles to see if you can see any of what you were doing. If the backlight is on the fritz, either return it on warranty or buy a new one.

Monitor Issue: 5 seconds of picture the monitor goes black.


I had this similar problem. I found out that there was a bad 1000uf, 16V cap on the power supply board. The cap is too close to a heat sink and over heated. I bought the cap at radio shack for $2, installed it so that it is far away from the heat sink. Monitor now stays on when powered up.

These monitors are difficult to open.

After removing the stand, you need to insert a flat screw driver at the bottom of the screen where two slots are located. Then work the screw driver around until the two plastic pieces are separated. Remove the cover plate and unscrew the push buttons. Unplug the monitor cords from the driver board. Unscrew the mounting screws from the power supply board and remove. You will need to pinch the plastic support in the middle of the board to remove. Unsolder the cap. It is located near a copper heat sink and the value will be on the cap. It will be buldged up on the top. You will see burn marks on the board surrounding the cap. Install the new cap and solder. Be careful not to solder across joints.

Reassemble and turn on. Should solve the problem
