Having problems with your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor ?
Monitor power light blinking on and off but no picture
\015 My monitor has suffered some problems recently, the menu button for some reason is broken, and so the OSD Main Menu keeps appearing in the middle of the screen, though during the summer time i have a much more serious problem. i have had no trouble turning on the monitor in the first weeks of july, but later on i found that when i click on the monitor to turn it on there is a brief hesitation before the monitor power button blinks on and off. waiting does not work because the blinking will go on for eternity if you don't plug the monitor cable off. this problem only happens in the summer time for some reason and occasionally it does work, and the computer boots and runs normally. however the problem returns if/when i shut down the computer. also for some reason it is more likely to turn on later in the day, and on sunny days(unfortunately today is overcast) can anyone tell me whats wrong? BTW i have tighted all power cords and every single cable that connects to the power source or monitor. the problem still returns with a vengeance. Also it is worth noting that if i turn on the server the computer can function normally, except without the screen. Here are my computer specs:2003 HP Pavilion f1703 that for obvious reasons is way beyond its warranty periodI updated all video cards yesterday when it just miraculously turned on (on the second try) and the problem still returns. I have tried blowing on the cable and nothing works. \015
