The screen stays on for only 2 seconds and then goes black. I push the button on and it will come on again for 2 seconds for several tries. Pretty soon it won't come on at all but you can see the button turn on and off on its own with a faint flash on the screen. After awhile "Dell" appears briefly on the screen and it stops flashing on its own. I can then turn the screen on and off again for awhile with the button and then the process starts all over.


Most likely the back light is problem.If you see the whole screen initially, the CCFLs are ok.Solution 1. Replace the power board, if you can get a cheap one.Solution 2. ** Warning ** This method defeats the protection circuit ... Dell Computer Monitors
