Question about KDS K717s 17" LCD Monitor
My kds k717, after 8 month of service, it blackout the screen and then every time I turn on, show me the image for just 2 seconds
This is a common problem across many monitors, unfortunately. The problem stems from one of two things, typically.
It is either the Power Inverter board (Inverter Mirage Electronics AD-1700 Rev:F 200-000-170DTL1 VERSION:A) or a weak or dying backlight.
If your monitor comes on for 2 seconds then you can test the backlight by using the controls to get into the backlight brightnes settings on the OSD and turning it WAY down.
If that dosen't work then it is likely bad capacitors on the Power board mentioned above. If you feel adventurous and know how to solder then you might be able to fix this yourself. You need to be careful however because you are dealing with high votage in there and capacitors CAN hold a charge long after you have unpluged the unit. You can read more about this power board as well as how to replace the bad caps HERE.
If that's not for you then I would recomend taking it to a local TV shop for them to fix. The parts shouldn't be more than $20, but labor can be expensive.

I have the sameproblem soI plugged in a HP 1702 after 2 days it started doing the same thing. I am using an old school kds with no problems.
Could it be a bug in the system with flat screens.

This additional power enhances the sound quality.
1 Press and hold the B.OUT button for at least 3
seconds to start the blackout mode. By doing so the
