    The same. Plug it in and the blue power button lights. Then the Gateway image appears. About 3 seconds later it goes dead. Unplug it and wait a minute. Plug it back in and the same thing happens.

Hi
If your picture wasn't pinkish or dark at the top or bottom when it was working, then it may be the inverter has gone bad. Inverters are like light bulbs and have life expectancies on the capacitors.
If your picture was pinkish or dark at the top or bottom when it was working then you may have 1 or more of the bulbs failing.

To get to the inverter:
Remove the stand.
Take the screws out of the bottom rear edge (these hold the front trim)
The the trim then unsnaps. {Be aware of the wire to the power button board on the bottom corner}
Start at the bottom and release the trim by lifting away from the glass of the screen from the center outwards to the corners, then work your way up each side bottom to top (a pocket knife or thin putty knife will help release the catches) These sides can be really tough to pop off especially the last top clip on each side.
Then unsnap the top edge (rocking it while lifting helps)
Disconnect the power button plug or unsrew the screws.
Once trim is off, remove the 4 corner screws that hold the screen in. Then the screen will lift up.
unplug the bulbs and wire to the screen (screen plug that goes into the metal case pulls out)
then the inverter is under the center area under the metal cover
Shout if you need more info.
If you email me a good picture of the inverter , I may be able to get a better idea if it is the inverter from a visual.

Hp flat panel monitor comes on shows logon and then blank screen


Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on?
If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps.
If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

Pavilion f1903 silver goes blank seconds after turning on.


The monitor you have has bad components on the circuit boards inside.
This is a classic problem with all LCD monitors.
I rebuild them on a daily basis so I recognize the symptoms.
I would suggest finding someone who can do component level repair on the circuit boards inside.
I also suggest not trying to repair yourself as there are many breakable components to them as well as components inside that do not like static electricity discharges.

Problem with monitor


Hi.
Are you able to see a slight image on it at dusk and maybe with the help of a flashlight. since your blue light stays on the video board, may be okay.
It sounds like you have bad capacitors on your powerboard or possibly a burned out transistor on the inverter.

Only way to really tell is to open it up.
If you unplug the screen to video board ribbon, you may notice a different effect in the screen lighting.
There is a chance one of your bulbs is creating a problem
Should the screen happen to light up all white, then your power board and inverter are okay and the problem may be in the video board.
If it looks pinkish or dark or flickers then the bulbs or a bulb may be the issue.
If it flashes on then goes off, it's in the power or inverter board.
