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

Dell 1704fpt Screen turns white

I have a Dell 1704FPT that turns white.  When you initially turn on the screen you can see a picture but within seconds Horizontal lines form and the display "bleeds" to white.  This happens no matter what port (DVI/VGA).  It will even do it when not connected to the computer.  I have been told it is the power supply, the LCD, or the driver card.  Since that pretty much covers everything inside, does anyone know how to narrow it down?  Seems like the Power supply voltages are right.  Don't know how to test the LCD/ Driver.

Thanks

    So that is the driver board.  The LCD should be fine?

yes you can use the usb port but let me tell you one thing very clearly there is problem with these ports either they dont recognize your usb or maybe your monitor screen flickers... so use monitor port with a lot of care and i advised you to atlest read the manual before you do anything.

Dell 1704 monitor goes to black screen after one


Hi my name is Rain.
Ok so that im clear on the problem. your monitor will come on but in a matter of seconds it goes to a black screen?
If this is the problem. The answers you seek will most likely
be in your video card.
Try this test:
  • Unplug monitor from the computer.
  • Turn on monitor .
  • Look for monitor self test screen.
If you see the monitors self test screen then your problem indeed is
the video card . You will need to replace the video card inside of the computer.

Dell 1704FPT LCD will not turn on.


Hello,
The adapter you have been using might be faulty. Make sure the cable is inserted fully. If that does not work, try the VGA or the DVI adapter you have not been using. Verify also the socket to which its connected (the power source) is not faulty either.

Hope it helps.
