    I have the same problem, it is definately the monitor. I can see the lcd is still showing a picture by shining a flashlight on it. So I know that the backlight is out, but I checked the fuses inside and they're all good. I pulled out the ccfl lamps and they have a small spot of grey on the ends, does this mean they're bad?

    The monitor is broken. Totally taken apart, found nothing shorted or blown out, no blown fuses, etc. Its either the inverter or the lamp, just trying to figure out which. It will not work on multiple computers, ie the monitor is the broken.. has video (can see with a flashlight) but has not backlight (ie inverter/ccfl)

Lets clearify,

how did this happen, any major changes (installations,configurations) before this happened.

can you still access the computer.

what have you done to trouble shoot

have you tried taking out the video card and putting it back in.

is it a mother board or a separate VGA video card.

you got an idea of what happen

any burning smells?

Screen goes blank when first turned on, have to keep restarting m


Hello,

If you turn the monitor off then about 1020 sec turn it back on and have a picture for five sec again it sound like the power supply in the monitor. but if that did not solve the problem, the picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault and will need to be replace.

I advice you replace the picture board on the screen of your monitor to solve the problem of the blank screen.

Take care.

Screen going blank on system boot and on switch off/on


Hello,

It is the picture picture board on your monitor that is malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on, but the display screen goes blank after a fraction of seconds, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Screen Goes Blank


Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

Blank screen


This looks like a problem with the video card or the power supply to the monitor. Try connecting a different monitor and if you still face the same problem then probably you may need to have a look at your video card or its connection in motherboard

White blank screen


Hi...there,

If you got a white screen, then you need to replaced a new AD board. AD board is a piece of component that you plugged your VGA or DVI cables to the monitor. Good lucks, Have a nice weekend!

Blank screen, but has power


It is most likely a backlight that has burnt out or something else of the sort. You will want to call HP Support and explain to them of your troubles.
