Having problems with your Dell UltraSharp 1701FP 17" LCD Monitor ?

Dell 1701FP monitor - power buttons blinking - no display - no white screen

\015 Hi guys, I just got a free lcd panel from a friend who broke it recently. Its been dropped and the screen is cracked, but when I plug it into my laptop as a secondary monitor, I don't see anything on the broken lcd panel. The power buttons just kinda blink randomly - green for the power and amber of the brightness contrast buttons. \015\012\015\012I am pretty good at experimenting with electronics, so I did open the case up, and found out that the inverter is dead. For this reason, I have another inverter borrowed from a CCFL kit, and I found out that the tubes to burn, and you can see the white glow. \015\012\015\012But now that the screen glows, and I have the controller board hooked to my laptop as a secondary, when the board is powered up, I still don't see any image, and the LED's on the power button controller just blink randomly.\015\012\015\012Anyone got a remedy or solution for this?\015

\015\012Checking procedures.
\015\012
\015\0121. Check the fuse on the inverter board labeled F1. If it is opened then your inverter board has a problem. That's why the fuse is opened.
\015\012
\015\0122. Remove the white wide cable connecting the main board and inverter board. Next plug the D-sub cable and power adapter and test. If the 2 green light indicators are solid green then your problem is positively coming from your inverter board.
\015\012
\015\012Solution in fixing the inverter board:
\015\012
\015\012In my case, the fuse was opened. So I first resoldered all the legs of the 4 transformers. Eight legs each transformer. Resoldered also the capacitor at the back of the inverter board. Checked the 2 diodes labeled (D3 and D13). One of them was shorted. So replaced it using Radioshack 3A 400piv. It is quite bigger in value but I just want to make sure it can handle the load of current.
\015\012
\015\012Tip in checking a diode, it should always open using a digital tester.
\015\012
\015\012That's it. re-assemble then test it again.
