Question about HP vs15 15"LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor goes black but shows icons...

I turn on the computer and the icons show, then they go black. I turn on the monitor and briefly it shows them again. Is it in a sleep mode, did I hit a button? It was working perfectly before that. I tried a new cable from the monitor to the tower but didn't affect it so returned it. Any suggestions????

I'll assume this is an LCD panel screen.

If what you are saying is the screen shows up and then goes dim or starts dim, and you can see a dark image of the system starting up and then displaying Windows...

Your problem is a bad CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) at the top of the LCD panel.

If the screen is totally blank, then it may be the power inverter.

You can find many websites that sell these parts, but make sure you have the right model.

If you feel comfortable with working on computers, you can replace this part yourself. Otherwise, you may want to pay a technician to do it. Make sure to get a fixed price quote before authorizing the work

Here is a website on LCD repair for laptops, but it the same principal for display monitors.

When I boot my computer My HF237 monitor will briefly show the page then go dark. How can I diagnos the problem?


This is usually an issue with a failing capacitor. I replace them in mine often. In the monitor, on the power supply will be several capacitors (caps). Look for the tops to be domed these are bad. Try a site called badcaps if you are game to replace these.

A soldering station after shipping can be as low as $32 or so.

Monitor goes black seconds after showing desktop


Does your monitor go black because it went to sleep, does it turn off? Do you have any lights on the monitor to indicate what it is doing?

Also I would boot into safe made by rebooting the computer & tapping F8 when the bios appears. You should be prompted with several options, one of which is "Safe Mode". Choose this & report how the monitor behaves.

I have an hp pavilion dv9815nr notebook pc. My laptop turns on, but when I enter the first letter of my password the screen goes black. Computer sound like it is still running but just black screen


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

1905FP Monitor Powers up, briefly shows logo, blacks out.


Look inside for bad caps with bulgng tops, worst case will be shorted out transistors in the backlight inverter circuits or bad lamps. Check to see if you do have he 12vdc for the inveter circuits. See example of failed monitors with bad caps here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

My monitor showes for a split second then goes black


First, can you attach another monitor to the computer to check to see if it works?

If it does, then your monitor is going bad. Possibly the power supply.
If a second monitor acts the same way, then it's your video card.

The l226wtq goes black


Try shining a flashlight on the screen, or without the flashlight, try to see if you can distinguish anything on the screen at all, if you do, the backlight is dead, or the monitor has an internal most likely unfixable problem.

Monitor Screen goes black seconds after turn on-


I ended up fixing my problem, but I'm not sure what the solution is. I had some faulty electrical equipment that I was using to power the monitor (220V to 110V converter and a bad power strip) and I got rid of them. I was using the converter because I moved to Israel and I thought I needed to feed the monitor only 110V, but I now realize that the power cord for the monitor has a built-in converter that accepts 220V input. Now the monitor is plugged directly into the wall and is working fine. Try using a different power source (maybe the wiring or plug you're using is faulty). Good Luck!

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.
