Sounds like a backlight problem.. due to the inverter shutting down due to a fault.

My aopen when you turn it on the green light kept blinking


Try it on another PC first, if it still does not work and you want to DIY repair, then please read below:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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.

My Dell flat panel monitor #1704FPTt will not stay lighted for more than 1 second. It started fading when first turned on about 2 weeks ago, otherwise it has been fine. Can it be fixed (it is about 8 years...


Fist place to check will be the power supply, look for bad caps with bulging tops, check to see if you do have 12vdc feeding the back light inverter circuits, see example of failed monitors (90% are due to bad caps): http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

My monitor turns on but then goes black after about 10 seconds, I quickly turn it off and back on and then screen is fine for 10 seconds. Sometimes I can fix it by gently tapping the on/off button...but...


It could also just be the button is faulty... but a 6 year monitor is going to start throwing more and more problems at you.

Go to eBay.com and treat yourself to a nice new monitor - they are very cheap these days.

Power light keeps flashing, unable to power up screen. Tried unplugging power source and turning off hard drive. Neither of or combo of worked.


Turn off the power to your monitor. Unplug from the back of your computer and for the outlet wait 10 to 20 minutes and reconnect and try to cut it on.

Green Power light blinking


Check the resolution in the Windows while connected to the old monitor. If greater than 1280 X 1024 and/or the refresh rate exceeds 75 Hz, the monitor may not respond. But you should at least see the BIOS splash when the computer is turned on. If that does not appear, maybe a problem has occurred in the monitor. Another indicator: if you turn the monitor power button off and then back on, you should get some sign of life such as "no signal", or "out of range". If nothing appears, that would indicate some problem within the monitor.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Flashing green power light - Black screen


I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard

Hi, My name is Todd and I'm a customer advocate at Dell's corporate headquarters. My team helps customers via blogs, forums, and other tech sites online. You said the monitor is 2 years old. Do you have the original order number still? Depending on how you purchased the monitor it may have up to a 3 year manufacturer warranty and I may be able to replace it if it is within that warranty period. Please email me at Customer_Advocate@Dell.com if you can locate the order number and I'll be glad to see if its still under the manufacturer warranty. Include my first name (Todd) in the subject line of the email so it can quickly be routed through to me, and include the order or customer number if you have it. Thank you, Todd Customer Advocate Dell, Inc. http://direct2dell.com/one2one/archive/2006/11/19/3648.aspx
