Re: display problem

When the screen goes dark shine a flashlight in the lower right hand corner where the Start button typically is located. If you can see faint images then you have a backlight problem. If you don't see anything then try connecting a spare monitor in its place. If that works then you have some other type of problem involving your LCD monitor. In both cases unless you have the experience and tools to safely work on fairly delicate electronics this is not a repair job for the typical consumer.

Volume screen keeps popping up every few seconds, when I touch "menu" button it goes away, only to come back a few seconds later

michaelfoder, Because very strange things start to appear on the screens of cold cathode fluorescent lamp, back-lit, LCD monitors, I always investigate the "switch-mode-power-supply/ccfl inverter supply for very common occuring defects in the supply!!! You can find out about them here: Just remember to do a fixya rating and testimonial if this response helps you to find and correct problem in your 2-3year old unit. Problem could be an unstable +5v or +3.3v dc supply rail. 12fixlouie

When i turn on the monitor it flashes on once for a few seconds t

faith1114, Try this first! See if any thing seems a little similar to your f1903 type of complaint. Problem been around a long time!!! Go do some reading here: After doing some reading there, you will be in a better position to make decision to DIY repair, contract out the repair work, trade in for new , DIY repair + buy a new monitor keeping refurbished f1903 as emergency spare. Here is a little clue. If unit can display Win-desktop for 2 seconds and then the "black screen of death happens" you certainly need to do some reading and viewing of DIY videos at YOUTUBE so you can understand the big problem all major CCFL back-lit lcd monitor manufacturers are facing. do some additional reading here at fixya in the profiles of ccfl backlit lcd monitor technicians "budmrtn" "buddymc" , "12fixlouie" (late) "louie12fix" (old) Follow links you find there. Once you understand basic problem you will never walk past the new curlie-Q, screw-in energy-efficient CFL light bulbs at the local hardware or big box homecenter ever again with out having a slight grin on your face!! Bye for now. 12fixlouie

The hp f1703 will display for 3-5 seconds and go balck

rking3905, Please tell me if F1703 is BOTH BLACK and BLANK, or if it is just BLACK! If the screen is BLACK and you can see the WIN-desktop with aid of flashlight held 1" from the screen then the monitor's "switch-mode-power-supply" is in partial shutdown mode having detected a FAULT condition with the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" power supply called an INVERTER circuit (12vdc to 600-1200vac) to light-up the lamps hung on the rear of the LCD panel which produce WHITE light so you can see the image or text displayed on the LCD glass panel. In any case, you or a technician will need to evaluate the true state of your monitor. Also try to view some video clips on YOUTUBE that deal with "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair". The longer (8-12min) clips are best. FYI goto,, for more information on what may be the cause of your BLACK and or BLANK screen! If this was of some help, please rate this response on fixya.

HP Pavilion meets monitor

I would fathom a guess that the motherboard has been damaged, if it is the PS then you can see by taking it into a service center to have the output checked 3 v 5 v 12 volt good luck.

RE:monitor goes black

Monitor going black after a few seconds can be causd by a faulty power supply or inverter. Some monitors have both as one unit.
Sometimes it is basic failed capacitors, After that then I would look at transistors.
The average monitor from 17 to 20 and sometimes the 22s have usually 4 bulbs in them. One bad bulb will also cause the inverter to not fire up.
Bad bulbs usually show pinkish tint, or flickering or are dark at center top or bottom of the display.

17" Monitor keeps going black

Hi Rahni, It's a very common problem. LCD's use four small Cold Compact Fluorescent bulbs to back light the display. (thats what gives the LCD it's brightness allowing you to see it) The inverter board runs these lights and when they go bad they will typically show symptoms like you have or the monitor power light comes on and you have either no display or a very dim display. If you ever have one that has no display but the power light is on you can check by shining a flashlight directly into the LCD from the front (right into the screen) if you can see an image then it's either the inverter board (most likely) or the CCFL bulbs have gone bad. The inverter board and CCFL's are replaceable. Good Luck, El Duderino
