Having problems with your Dell UltraSharp 1704FPT 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

Monitor shutdown also

\015 I have 3 of these monitors that also shut down on their own.\015\012Two will not turn on at all (no response from power button) \015\012and the third will work for a short time \015\012then the top of the screen gets brighter then shuts off.\015\012It is possible to turn this monitor back on but it will only stay on \015\012for a second or up to about a minute.\015\012\015\012It is not the power cord or video card. Old CRTs work fine on the\015\012computers and the 1704 monitors have been moved to different computers\015\012and have experienced the same problems.\015\012\015\012Do all LCDs have a much shorter life than CRTs or does Dell have a \015\012problem with these products?\015

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After they shut down on their own, you check that you can see the image on the screen by shining a flashlight into\015\012the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look\015\012very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there\015\012will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and\015\012check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. If you cannot see anything on the\015\012screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you\015\012have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It\015\012may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board\015\012because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a\015\012technician to do so.

For the past week, when my Sceptre LCD monitor goes to sleep after inactivity, it won't restart immediately. The blue LED blinks every second or so; eventually, the screen begins to flash the display, and then a few minutes after that, will finally turn on. Sometimes the whole process takes five minutes, sometimes an hour. How can I fix this problem? (I can't find the documentation to say exactly what model this is; if that's important, I can look again.)
