    I have the same problem and tried using a different moniter for awhile. When I went to try this one again, it wouldn't even turn on.

    I have the same problem and I went to a friend and tried the monitor with his computer and it did not work. I hooked another monitor to my computer and it works fine now. Definitely it has to do with the monitor and I have to find out if it can be repaired now.

HP vs17 (PK657AA) problem: the image is displayed for 3 seconds

first try entering VGA mode in the startup menu. u can get the startup menu by pressing the F8 key immediately after the POST screen. if the screen stabilizes try changing the resolution to 1024 by 768 which should work in normal mode. if that doesnt work then the monitors internal bulbs may be burnt. an electrician may fix this problem for you.

Why does my HP vs17 monitor screen keep going to blank black screen like it turned off but did' power button light is still on? Everything is running but no picture.....keeps happening everytime...

this old monitor has 2 issues.
1: it has CCFL tubes that love to burn out (backlamps)
most this old are long go, yell,dim.,blinking or DEAD.
2: push the menu button on front of mon. turn off power saver.

3: if the PC goes to sleep, or hibernete mode (parked)
then that is 100% normal
if you dont like feature then go to windows control panel
click power, ICON and turn off all monitor sleep /hibernate modes.

that assumes windows, no OS stated.

if the lamps are dead,
use flash light pointed to sceen, see data. ? bingo for bad CCFT tubes.

Power button is on (blue) but no display. If you

Try to change the screen resolution and frequency setting of your graphic card.
1. Restart your PC
2. Before getting into splash screen, press F8 frequently
Choose enable VGA mode by pressing up arrow and press Enter, wait until finish loading. Now the display looks bigger, change the screen resolution to best fit to your Monitor (normally 1360X800). DO NOT CLICK OK>go to advance tab> Monitor tab, choose 60Hz for screen refresh rate, NOW you may KLIK OK

Monitor does not turn on

Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed HP monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Screen does not go on.

You may have backlight inverter circuits failure or power supply failure, look inside for bad capacitors in the power supply first since it is easy to do, post back what you see inside so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps, inverter, or lamps:

Hp pavilion f1703 blue monitor power button flashesw/ dark screen

Have you tried connecting this monitor to another computer, even a laptop. This would tell you whether the display is bad or the video card is the culprit. I suspect the monitor's power supply is dying. Taking it to a pro for repair should cost @55.00. Buying a new monitor @ $100 - $125.
