Dear Thunderforce -
I've run across this issue quite a few times with LCDs, and generally there are two possible causes: Either the Power Supply is bad(best case), or the LCD's Inverter is bad(worst case). Most LCDs now use a standard computer/monitor power supply - usually a thick cable, with three prongs on the male end and three slots or holes on the female end, same as would be used to give power to the computer. If you have an extra cable, you should try testing it with the LCD. If the screen works, fantastic, chalk it up to a broken power supply.
Otherwise, you'ld have to open up the display to replace the Inverter board. The LCD will have three or more circuit boards in its casing; One that handles input, one that handles power, ocasionally a separate board for video logic, and a slim board that connects the other PCBs to the screen itself. This slim board is the Inverter, and will have to be replaced.
The issue at this point is cost of repair vs. cost of replacement. An LCD inverter can cost anywhere from 40-140 bucks(on average) even on Ebay. Most big-name computer stores offer a comparable LCD for around the same price after rebates, or on sale. Second hand, I've even seen a few 17" LCDs for as low as fifty bucks.
Hope this helps!

hi im josh in cebu phils. may i help you friend? just try this solutions i arranged for the people who needs help.just try friend.
THE COMPUTERS SEEMS TO BE WORKING, BUT THE SCREEN IS BLANK.
- Check the monitor if turned on.
- Check all the LED power on the monitor, if it has one.
- Adjust brightness and contrast controls all the way to the maximum.
- Check the video cable from the monitor to the computer to be sure if it is properly connected.
- Check the power cable. If it is connected properly at both ends.
- Try different monitor on your computer. If it does not work, the display card is likely at fault. Replace the display card.
- Try your monitor on a different computer. If it does not work, replace the monitor or have it repaired by a trained technician.
COMPUTER BOOTS, BUT DISPLAYS “JUNK” ON THE SCREEN
- It may be that the display card is defective. Try a different card. If it works the first card may be bad.
- Try the suspected bad card on another computer. If it displays the same thing it is conclusive that the card is bad.
DISPLAY IS DIM, OVERLY BRIGHT, OR BLURRY, OR UNPLEASANT.DISPLAY IS OFF CENTER. LEFT OR RIGHT SIDE OF MONITOR IS OBSCURED.
- Try adjusting the control knobs located on either the front or back of the monitor. It maybe necessary o open the monitors casing to get the proper adjustment controls. In this case be very careful because there are high voltages in the monitor.
THE VIDEO DISPLAY FADES AND BRIGHTENS, OR IS WARY.
- The voltage may be fluctuating due to so many appliances or electric devices on he same branch circuit.
- Turn off other appliances and peripherals, such as printers, external modem, refrigerator, microwave oven, transformer, etc. and see if that solves the problem. If the problem persists, try swapping out the display cards. If changing the monitor solved the problem, repair or replace the monitor.
IMAGE IS NOT STRAIGHT ACROSS THE SCREEN
- If the monitor is still under warranty, bring it back to the dealer for adjustment. If the you want to do it your self, bare in mind that this is potentially dangerous procedure because it must be done while he monitor is on and there is very high voltages around the picture tube.
WARNING: THIS IS A DANGEROUS PROCEDURE!!!
- Open the monitor casing and loosen the clamp holding he coils around he picture tube. You can loosen them (usually there’s a wing nut) and a rotate the coil assembly until the picture strengthens.
good luck hope i helped you.

This monitor has 5 capacitors in the power supply that age prematurely. I can repair this for $50.00 +parts + shipping. Or you can take it to a local repairperson.

Does it do the same when you use this monitor with other PC, new VGA cable, just need to narrow down the problem first before start taking the monitor apart.
See pictures of what usually goes bad (mostly failed capacitors) with monitors:
Post back what you find so we can guide you further

Clean and resolder all four round inductors, check the caps, replace them if they have bulging tops (even slightly bulg). Check the transistors (c5707) for shorts. See pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/HP%20F1703/
