Removing casing from HP vs19/f1905 monitor

What is the best way to get the casing apart on this monitor? Like so many other people, my screen is now blank and from what I read here, it may be the capacitors.

    I thought it was from this site but I could be mistaken. I don't have a digital camera to take a picture of the inside of the monitor. Also, the person who was going to try to take the monitor apart has been reluctant to try it as of yet.

I also have a white screen. I checked the capacitors on mine....well at least visually and I did not see anything wrong with them. No bulges. Any other good way to check them? So do you have any links to the areas you have been reading about on these? It seems to me on the larger board and I definitely have a resistor that actually burned the board. It has a black mark on it. Not sure if that has to do with a capacitor or not. Tell you what when you get your face plate off email me a picture of the main board at and let me check if I am missing a capacitor. I have a spot that looks like a capacitor should be there but it is not. We can also compare resistance reading at different points to see if we can tell where the problem is.

To answer your question I popped it off with 2 small flat head screwdrivers. I took the stand off first (5 screws I think and then popped the front face off and then removed 4 screws on the side. After that just pull the panel display out slowly and disconnect the ribbon cables. There you have it.

Monitor went out and only displays a black screen. The power button indicates that the power is on but no picture. The model is an HP f1905 19 inch flat screen monitor.

Use a flashlight and shine on your screen. Look carefully is you still see the image on the screen. If you do, this is an indication that the monitor is still working, but the backlight has failed. A common solution with backlight-failures is to open the monitor, and look if you see any "swollen" capacitors ( If you see one you should replace it. Only open your monitor if you know what you're doing and have basic knowledge of electronics and soldering.

Have tested all cords and monitor is black. Power light is on. Am sure this is an internal problem with monitor, Is this something that can be repaired? HP f1905


The "inverter" inside the LCD screen may have failed.

It's about a $20 part, but I highly recommend that you pay a qualified technician $60 ("one hour labour") to disassemble, change the bad part, resassemble, and test the device. Much cheaper than trying it yourself, damaging the monitor, and then spending $200 to replace it.

My HP vs19 will not power on

I suggest you might try another power outlet, otherwise maybe the "fuse" in your screen might be dead, also try to go to the store that sold it to you to see the warranty it might still be on it because some manufacturers give sometime 3+ years of warranty. Also check with you manifacturer

Don't drag out your soldering gun these are too high wattage and will melt the board. Use a 40 to 25 watt soldering iron.

You are not looking for the driver for your monitor. You need the drivers for your video card. It is probably running with the defualt Vista drivers as well and needs to have the correct manufactures drivers installed.
With the correct drivers you should be able to control 2 different settings one for each monitor.

Output flicks very heavily

Speak to HP/Compaq they will be able to advise. They are usually pretty good with hardware faults. You probably have a three year warranty on it so take advantage. Your mobile phone is not by your pc or any other wireless phone?
