I have a Dell 1703FPT monitor and one day it just went blank. Switched to new VGA cable and DVI cable. No avail.


Symptoms:


1) When plugging in, it displays a scrambled image (see attached pic) rotated 90* CCW.


2) Monitor glows along the edges but no display


3) Green power button stays lit and cannot be turned off. Monitor can't be turned off either.


4) With VGA cable unplugged, it doesn't display anything like "monitor disconnected". Just a blank screen w/ glowing edges.


5) I've tried it on 2 other computers. They don't display either.


Another note, I tried DVI and VGA and neither works. Same result.

Opened it up last night and didn't notice any buldging caps or broken traces either.


Any ideas? Inverter? Bad cap? Thanks.

Use the built-in setup menu. If it boots distorted, the monitor is toast and requires professional service. Its fixable but is it worth it?

I had a different problem with my LCD monitor. The screen just got some lines and some parts were wavy. I had it fixed at the service center, they had to change some sort of chip inside. maybe you should really to have it checked by a professional.
