This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's the problem. You can confirm that it's the monitor and not your computer or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try.

If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old it is, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

Hp pavilion f1703 flashes on and off. Tried pushing F8 for 30 seconds - no result.


have you checked the power connecter at the back of the monitor?

is it the whole PC that is flashing on and off or JUSTr the monitor?

the F8 key when turning on a Windows based PC, will only take you to a screen to choose how to start windows, in Normal mode, safe mode, or commandline mode.

none of this helps a flickering screen.

try and change out the data cable (VGA cable, blue screw in plug) and the power cable if possible.

Hp pavilion f1703 blue monitor power button flashesw/ dark screen


Have you tried connecting this monitor to another computer, even a laptop. This would tell you whether the display is bad or the video card is the culprit. I suspect the monitor's power supply is dying. Taking it to a pro for repair should cost @55.00. Buying a new monitor @ $100 - $125.

Monitor going black


HP's are known for bad capacitors in the power supply.
Replacing them is simple if you know how..not so simple if you don't.
Try your local TV repair centre. It should not cost alot to have the capacitors replaced.

Hope it helps =)

Monitor going black


My HP f1703 is almost 3 years old and started having this same problem. My fix got the display to stay on. Don't know how long this fix will work. I set the monitor brightness to 51 and contrast to 41. You may have to adjust to your levels to your appropriate enviroment. Levels may determine how long the monitor stay operational. Do NOT set your monitor brightness to factory levels it will just start to recreate the problem again. Solution: The monitor should be on with the blue button lighted. If the screen is acting up (you turn it on and the display lights up and then it turns off within 2 to 5 seconds) Try decreasing the brightness level down as much as possible. Wait 15 to 30 seconds and see if the display comes back to life. If not, turn the monitor off and on again and try the procedure again, if necessary. Cause: I believe the monitor brightness level, set at 100 by the factory setting, is over driving the display and causing the protection circuit to cut off the flouresent lamps that light the display. HP had an issue with this display, and had a notice to replace them if the problem occurred during the warranty period. They extended the warranty period from Jun 04 to Feb 06. Check with HP Technical Support to determine if your monitor is cover.

Blank screen


Similar monitor, similar problem. I actually had to dismantle the thing and replace a transistor on the mainboard.

If you're not into soldering and such, good luck.
