There are multiple circuits for this model. I suspect your model is PE1237. If so this model frequently has bad solder connections at the AC socket. Also capacitor 2119 or capacitors 2041 & 2031 can cause no power up. They normally are bulging if bad.
If your model is PE1238 (BenQ), you may see bulging capacitors in the power supply.(1000uf/25v)

Try to use Graphics card. Insert your monitor cable to it. Make sure you have a Graphics card slot on your motherboard. If there's still no display on the screen, then it is on your motherboard problem.

My hp 1730 lcd screen is making a humming sound which seems to get lower when i turn down its brightness but doesnt go away any suggestions?

That sounds like the inverter that powers the back-light. Unless it's really annoying I would just live with it. It's probably more expensive to repair than to buy a new similar sized screen.

Monitor comes on momentarilly, then screen turns black. when power is turned off and back on again, screen comes on for a second, then goes black again. Is this a bad monitor?

The only problem that causes the power on and off is a bad power supply. Go onto and search for the monitor (power supply). My dad's old LCD screen had a bad power supply, but I found my old printer power cable (HP PSC 750 All-in-One Printer), and the monitor turned on successfully. It's not a bad monitor, unless the PSU hookup is like the PC ATX/Baby-AT PSU cable, then it might be the issue. Monitors before 2004 or 2005 have the ones, like the HP PSC 750 uses. The monitor is either defective, or the power supply is dead.

p.s.: check the voltage, amp usage, etc. on the PSU for the monitor for better results.

What would cause your power button light on the monitor keep blinking and the screen is black and you have trouble getting the light to stay on and get the picture back on. what is the problem. thanks,...

If the button on monitor is blinking, it means your computer is either turned off or in standby mode (or in hybernation).
You should push the power button on your computer to restore it from standby (or hybernation).

Power Light Blinking & Black Screen

A blinking blue light indiactes that your power-inverter board is not putting out what it should. It needs an overhaul which may be a simple as changing out the capacitors on the boards.
It could go beyong that to transistors or even a bad bulb.
It will have to be opened up to do that.
A picture may show visual signs of damage. If you can take one and email it to me , I'll take a look.

Screen going black, green LED staying on

Check to see if the image is Dimmed. Chances are the power supply on the FPD is either dead or not supplying power to the back lights.
Your problem is the power supply or the inverter on your board, you can replace it and it will be fixed.
(inverter is what supplies power to your backlights. A lot of the times the reason a monitor goes black and the green power button is on, is because the backlights shut off. in most designs of the 1730 the inverter is embedded on the power supply. That is most often the case on this problem. Power supply/Inverter=Replace it and you will have a spanking new looking nice monitor working again. :)
