Having problems with your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor ?

Dell monitor monitor went black and will not come back on power button flashes can't turn it off just unplug it but when plugged back in still black any ideas

Answers :

This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is\015\012common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to\015\012display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's\015\012most likely the problem.\015\012You can confirm that it's actually the monitor and not your computer\015\012or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try. If\015\012it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards\015\012for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board\015\012can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old your monitor is,\015\012and how much you've invested into it, you may find it better to just\015\012replace it with a gently used one from ebay.
