It has a bad capaitors in it open it up look for bulged capacitors replace all bad ones and it will run again i fixed more hps with this problem than any other and it doesn't cost much to fix its under $10.00 thank you have a nice day
To open the casing, remove the four screws that secure the stand. if your looking at the screen, flip the top away from you 45 degrees so your looking at the bottom. to the very left and right you will see a small notch where the plastic casings meet. with a small flat-head screwdriver, carefully pry them apart and continue to work your way around the side carefully. I had the same cap problem with a dell. this is definately a cap problem. good luck!

faith1114, Try this first! See if any thing seems a little similar to your f1903 type of complaint. Problem been around a long time!!! Go do some reading here: http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution. After doing some reading there, you will be in a better position to make decision to DIY repair, contract out the repair work, trade in for new , DIY repair + buy a new monitor keeping refurbished f1903 as emergency spare. Here is a little clue. If unit can display Win-desktop for 2 seconds and then the "black screen of death happens" you certainly need to do some reading and viewing of DIY videos at YOUTUBE so you can understand the big problem all major CCFL back-lit lcd monitor manufacturers are facing. do some additional reading here at fixya in the profiles of ccfl backlit lcd monitor technicians "budmrtn" "buddymc" , "12fixlouie" (late) "louie12fix" (old) Follow links you find there. Once you understand basic problem you will never walk past the new curlie-Q, screw-in energy-efficient CFL light bulbs at the local hardware or big box homecenter ever again with out having a slight grin on your face!! Bye for now. 12fixlouie
I was given a faulty f1703 by someone as it was out of warranty, had no help from HP and bought another brand replacement.
Same problem everyone else seems to be having. Press the on button, came on for a second or so and then went blank. Press button again, turn on again and the same happened.
I managed through trying time and again after pressing on to quickly press menu, then go down to Factory settings, press select, go down to Yes and press select again. This reset to the Factory settings and it seems to be working okay. Been like this now for about a week. I don't know how long it will last - if it goes again will try re-soldering. Guess I won't be buying HP products as this was a part of a very expensive system.
Unless I have the model number wrong (F1903), this monitor was relased in 2004. If it is 8 months old then it should be fixed under warranty. This can be bad problem in the bcaklight inverter circuits or bad lamps due to bad soldering works, bad power supply, please look here to see hwat is involved in repairing the monitors: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
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.
