Question about HP Compaq FP 7317 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
Got a green power LED, black screen. Have monitor disassembled (apart). Out of warranty only two years old. How to test - could it be the fuses?
What type of monitor do you have? I need to no if the power supply or cord plugs directly into the LCD Monitor? These questions are important! Please answer these questions, I will be able to give you an answer!

If they are still under warranty, contact HP. If not, it may not be worth repairing. Sometimes a leaky power capacitor can be fixed. Otherwise the other components are surface mount and are very tricky to diagnose/repair.

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you can't do the repair we offer a repair service, contact us for more details or if you have any questions.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.
