I had the same problem. I found recommendations here and on other sites that I needed a new backlight inverter / power supply. I found exactly what I needed at this site: http://www.lcdrepair.us/ part number: E173FPCPWR. The have pictures of the exact card you need you need to by. Mine cost $50 plus shipping ($14.69) (ugh!) I just installed it today and it's working great. You need to feel comfortable popping the back of your monitor and working with little screws and connectors. You may find the part cheaper online. Sure beats buying a new monitor.

i bought a new acer 19" . i will try to change the capacitors and see how it works. if not, i will try the power inverter option. but my new lcd itself cost me 100$ after rebate. so paying 70 pounds for an inverter is unwise. previous poster, I am sure it is problem with monitor and not the connector coz it doesn't do the self diagnosis. thanks for all the responses so far.

I agree. The capacitors have popped. I found a local TV repair shop and the guy put new capacitors on the board for me for $5, so it's an easy fix. The monitor is difficult to get apart, but if you'll look carefully you can see small slots in the plastic, mine were on the bottom side, then insert a very tiny flat screwdriver carefully seperating the cover, using a slightly larger screwdriver in the gap, twist gently until the case pops open. Remember to take all the screws out of the exterior, and not to push the screwdriver in too far and scratch the screen. Good Luck.

Cause of power going
off: There is a bad 1000uF, 16V cap
on the power supply board.
Solution: Replace cap. Radio Shack sells a 1000uF, 35V cap for $2. This will work.
Why did the cap go bad? The cap is too close to a heat sink and over heated.
What does this cap do? This cap sends a signal to an IC which keeps the monitor 'on' after the power switch is pushed. When the cap is weak, AC ripple voltage is applied to the IC and it sends a signal to shut the monitor off.
Opening the Monitor: These monitors are difficult to open.
The two plastic pieces snap together and must be pried apart with a flat screw driver.
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 button circuit board.
Unplug the monitor cords from the driver board and remove the screen.
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.
Cap is located near a copper heat sink and the value will be on the side of the cap. It will be bulged up on the top. You will see burn marks on the board surrounding the cap. Unsolder the cap.
Install the new cap and solder. Make sure you connect + of the cap to + marked on the board.
Be careful not to solder across joints.
Keep leads long so you can bend the cap as far away from the heat sink as possible.
Reassemble monitor and turn on.
This should solve the problem.

The power supply in the unit has died. This is a very common problem with this series of monitor after 2-3 years of use. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself.
