Question about HP vs19 (Silver) 19" LCD Monitor
If it displays the 'no input' type message on the display, it's likely a cable or perhaps the main board in the monitor has gone out. However, if the display is completely black, no backlight, etc. or if the backlight flashes once then stays off, and possibly emits a high pitched squeeling sound, it is very likely that the capacitors on the power supply board for the inverter(s) have gone bad. Apparently there are a few different versions of this same monitor, but all seem similar, and many seem to have problems with the capacitors going bad over time. There is information floating around on this monitor on the internet (http://boredprojects.blogspot.com/2008/06/hp-vs19d-fix.html) which may or may not be the same as yours, but pulling it apart to replace the capacitors is a $5-10 and 1-2 hour shot in the dark, and seems to be within the capabilities of anyone with the ability to solder. Just be careful of the small surface mount components which are all over the back sides of these boards... The bad capacitors should be fairly obvious, with bulged or ruptured tops, possibly leaking fluid. The are most likely going to be the 1000uF 10V (or 25V depending on the model) capacitors towards one edge of the board. On mine, there were 6, 3 of which had swollen. Replace them with the same (higher voltage rating is fine, but not lower) specification parts, and it should be back in order.
