Question about HP Pavilion F70 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

HP Pavilion f70 monitor has dislodged on/off button

The on/off button for my monitor has become dislodged and now I can't turn the monitor off, unless I remove the power cord from the wall. I think the solution is to open the monitor so that I can lift off the face cover of the monitor and re-attach the on/off button. I have looked at HP's website and they don't offer any diagrams/ instructions on how to do this. Can you help me? Thanks in advance, Nigel

Nor would they. If you cannot see how to open it up then U suggest the item is a snap together shell and best left alone. If it is on all the time and the wall plug inconvenient- cut the power cord[unplugged of course] and insert an inline light switch- some times called a torpedo switch. Any electrical store will have them.

My monitor will not turn on. I verified that I do have power to the monitor but when I press the power button nothing happens. Also how do I open the monitor case after removing the screws on the back?

I would suggest you leave the idea of opening the monitor for now and do the following checks first:

- Check the power cord if it's properly connected and not loose.
- Use another power cord to make sure it's not the power cord that's faulty

Do not open the monitor, unless you know what you're doing, as this may only deepen the problem.

hope this helps.

All cords are correctly put on, when I turn the desktop on, my monitor doesnt power on, its stay off.

I apologize for thinking so simply, however, your monitor has a separate power button and power cord. Therefore, even if you computer is off, there should be power to the monitor unless the monitor is not plugged in or the power button is turned off.

Check the power button and power cord for the monitor.

My monitor won't turn on after turning it off overnight. Why?

If the monitor does not show a green indicator make sure the power cord is snug in the monitor, and check the receptacle in the wall for power. If you find everything checks out, the monitor will need to be replaced because it is not cost effective for repair. The power supply is defective and sometimes involves the inverter transformer.

Black screen

• 2) REMOVE YOUR AC ADAPTOR CORD, that's the wall power, remove it.

That will drain any static electricity that has built up on your laptop system board and many times fixes the problem of a black screen. After the 30 seconds re-connect your laptop to the wall power and hit the power button normally and see if the laptop comes back up.

Replace your battery.

Monitor say clear paper jam then press ok. It indicates that the problem is at the back of the printer (the protruding compartment) but I have taken this off examined everything and there is definitely no...

The clicking could be because it thinks there is a problem. Try doing the procedure for resetting the memory on the printer...
(For step 4, do # 3, # 6 as well)
  1. With the unit turned on, Press the Power button and turn off the HP All-in-One.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the Wall Outlet and then from the Unit.
  3. Wait for 20 seconds , Plug the power cord into the wall outlet.
  4. Press and hold # and 9 while plugging the power cord back into the unit. Continue holding the buttons down until the display goes blank or it shows a message.
  5. If the printer does not turn on automatically, then turn on the unit by pressing the Power button & follow the instructions that display on the HP All-in-One to select the settings

No power

I'm thinking you are asking why your monitor has no power--just saying "no power" doesn't say much!
Does this have a regular computer power cord? If so, have you tried another cord?
Does it have a transformer that is inline in the power cord? If so, is there power at the output end? If not, that is the problem.
If you have confirmed that there is power from the wall to the end of the cord that plugs into your monitor and you still get nothing when you push the on/off button, you need to replace or repair your monitor.

Dell E173FPc monitor. Screen is black, power button color cycles

First, verify the monitor is functional.
Monitor STFC (Self Test Feature Check)
Turn off the monitor
Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket to remove any
surge protectors or APCs from the troubleshooting equation
Unplug the monitor video cable from the back of the computer
Turn on the monitor
The floating dialog box should appear on screen against a black background.
If the issue appears during the STFC, the monitor is defective.
What are the results please?

Dont know how to turn on

The monitor has and adapter type power cord that plugs into the computer end of the VGA cable. Look for a small round hole at the PC end of the cable.

Can't turn my monitor on....

Confirm the way this monitor is powered. Power cord Is it direct from wall socket to monitor or via a low voltage converter[Power brick]? If it is direct from wall then it seems something internal has failed[you knew that!] and it is not going to be a Do It Yourself Job- because unless you know about these things- where are going to start? If it is a power brick- check the out put voltage and buy a replacement at any electrical store.
