Having problems with your Dell UltraSharp 1703FP 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

Screeen comes on --then goes blank

\015 I purchased a used Dell 1703FP because it was similar to a 1704 FTP I already own. The light powers the monitor on and the color bars appear for a split second...then it goes blank.\015

Answers :

Your inverter circuit is faulty. This controls the lights inside the screen so you can see what is happening on the LCD panel itself.
\015\012If you shine a torch into the LCD from the top at an angle you will still see the images on the screen. But with no light inside to project it outwards, it's dark.

\015\012A local TV repair shop should be able to do the reprair fairly cheap, but it's best to make a few phone calls and check they will work on an LCD monitor firstly, and secondly a rough quote.
\015\012This is a very common fault with LCD monitors.
