1704FPT1 - quits

  • My monitor, 1704FPT1, will run normally for a bit, then "flare" a little, and quit.  I can restart it, but only for a few seconds at a time.  IF it's off for a while, it starts okay again, then the cycle repeats. 

     

    What's happening?

  • I would suspect a power supply or defective electronics in the unit.  If it's still in warranty, call Dell support.  If it's out of warranty unfortunately the best option is to look for a new monitor, considering the price of a new 17" monitor.
