Any Idea what is wrong with Starlink 17?  Can the payload be removed for a static fire of the booster and find booster problems?  Or change boosters?

This latest delay is likely caused by the investigation into what caused B1059 to be lost than an issue with L17's booster. Don't want to launch L17 if it shares the same fatal issue( whether hardware or refurb process).

Starlink v1.0 Flight 17: launch scheduled February 25 EST.

https://twitter.com/NASASpaceflight/status/1362807222313619458

Quote
Meanwhile, SpaceX is tracking two Starlink launches next Thursday - L-20 and L-17 about 19 hours apart! (Updated Cape schedule - Subject to change).

So the current take-home is an "understood issue" - although we've not heard what issue B1059.6 (L-19) suffered during its return.

After Chris posted the above tweet, the Starlink v1.0 Flight 20 was rescheduled to NET March 8 UTC.
***

The last announced launch time for this flight was February 17, 0555 UTC.  February 26 UTC is 9 days later.
9 * (20 to 22 minutes earlier/day) = ~3 hours earlier.

New launch time = February 26 ~0300 UTC.  = February 25 ~22:00 EST.
***

Ben Cooper, as of February 20, still has TBD launch dates.  My bold.

FALCON 9
The next SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral will launch the twentieth Starlink batch on February or March TBD. A Falcon 9 will launch the twenty-first Starlink batch on TBD. Upcoming launches include additional Starlink missions on TBD. The launch time for Starlink launches gets approx. 20-22 minutes earlier each day. The next Crew Dragon carrying four astronauts to the International Space Station is targeted for April 20, around 5 or 6am EDT.

Just Read the Instructions droneship has returned to Port Canaveral!

No seagulls to report on this occasion.

The droneship was deployed for the Starlink V1 L17 mission which has been delayed.

Falcon 9 and its Starlink payload went vertical at 39A about an hour ago. Launch window is no earlier than this weekend, but don’t bank on it – nothing solid right now.

That's the second static fire in preparation for this launch.  The first was in the early morning hours of Jan 31.
