Question about Dell UltraSharp 1704FPT 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

My Dell 17 inch monitor keeps dying out. At first, it would flicker black and then go back to the original setting. Now, it flickers black and dies out -- the "on" button goes from green to orange -- and you can't turn it back on again. The button stays orange.

You can verify that it is the inverter going out by turning the monitor on in a dark room and shining a light directly into the screen. If you cannot see anything, then something has happened to the power circuit. Perhaps the solder on the power port has gone bad, and needs to be redone, or part of the circuit board fried. The only way to figure this out is to open it up and take a look-see. If you don't wish to try this, you can always take it to a shop and have them look at it. Be careful opening it, the inverter is high voltage. Don't have any power going to the monitor if you do this.

If it fades linearly, it is probably the high voltage inverter for the backlight fluorescent lamp. Generally, the lamp dies over time with some flickering of it first.
That inverter is normally on a small, separate board and once the unit is open, it is easy to locate and replace.

Black flickering line vertickally through monitor screen


It could be either of these:

You're monitor is dying and you need a replacement (Starlogic brand is notorious for dying early and giving poor performance)

You're graphics card is going out. If you have an extra monitor laying around, take out the Starlogic one and plug in the other to see if the same results occur, if not, it's the Starlogic monitor, if the problem still persists, you need a new graphics card or need to update your current drivers.
