The Capacitors on the power board are usually the reason for failure of an LCD. If you open the HP VS17 ( I can provide an exhaustive step by step If I have to) remove the five screws for the power board ( larger of the two boards) and look for an area where there are 4 caps (see pic). Look for exploded, popped up, bulging, or leaking caps and replace with the same or slightly higher tolerances. The one I replaced last night were (2x )1000uf25-50volt and (2x) 470uf25-50volt. Check the rest of the board for similar issues and replace as needed.

To remove the case of a VS17e you must first remove the base/stand. There are 3 screws to remove, in back of the LCD holding the base/stand. Two are visible and one is,only, available once you remove the top silver plastic cover on the stand.
Then you can pry apart the front silver plastic bezel. Another tip is to remove an aluminum cover on the top side of the metal LCD case to disconnect the data cable to the LCD screen.
Careful with the speaker wires once you decide to assemble back together.

The front and back covers snap together. remove the base and any other screws visible from the back, then pry the front and back apart with a flat blade screwdriver.

With regards to solution #2. I have removed the round metal baseplate and the top plastic cover on the stand. The front of the display was pried open. It was clear that the tilting mechanism was held to the metal frame which houses the electronics. So, back to the upright which comprises 2 of the 4 discrete sections making up the stand. The 7 cm long section of the roughly rectangular-in-cross-section, silver plastic between the 2 cm long rounded piece actually housing the tilting mech. and the formerly attached circular base must be removed next. It is held by 5 plastic tabs as I see it. Did you mean that these must be pried apart? I don't see any other way

    Answered my own question. In detail, here is the procedure:

    1) Remove metal bottom from base - 8 screws, a few under the rubber.



    2) Squeeze the now visible plastic tabs together to remove the round plastic from the upright.



    3) Inside the upright, at the end nearest the titl mech. you will see 5 plastic tabs. These do not allow the upright to be removed, however. Their purpose is to hold the rounded plastic cover located between the upright and the panel to be removed. start on 1 long side, apply a steady gentle pull on the rounded piece and pry the two tabs along that side. As you free up a couple tabs, the others become easier to separate.



    4) Once the small plactic cover is removed, you can access the 3rd screw holding the base to the panel.

I also have an HP VS17e with a blinking power indicator, won't power up. I managed to remove the exterior plastic housing and the small aluminum cover to get access to the ribbon cable, but I'm baffled by the connector. I have experience with several types of miniature ribbon cables, but this particular one has me stumped. How do I disengage it without damage?

We managed to remove the base and screws.
How do you open the case without damaging it?

We think there is more dust in the monitor, after using the vacuumcleaner and hitting on it the monitor it works again, even the blue powerlight came back on.

Thank You

Greetings.

Light on power on switch keeps blinking, screen blank.


Definitely a problem with the monitor. If you can get the back open then look at the main board and the power board. You will want to look for puffy capacitors. Instead of a flat top it will look puffy like its pregnant.

If you find any like that then you need to replace them with new capacitors that have the same Uf rating and at least the same voltage or higher.

This will take some unsoldering and soldering skills. Make sure the stiped edge gets aligned with the striped edge on the board.

If you replaced them then the monitor should turn back on. If it doesn't then its a screen problem and you'll need to get a new monitor.

Apple Cinema HD Display 30'' black screen, power light blinking


I don't know what might have happened, but a number of years ago I had an apple monitor and the power light on it started blinking, so I got in touch with apple and they told me that it's flashing an error code, so they told me what the blinking indicated and fixed it.

So I think the blinking of the power light on your monitor could be indicating an error code so I suggest you call apple and they will identify what the error is indicating.

My dell e173fp monitor has quit working. The power light continually blinks when power is applied, even without having to turn it on. An identical substitute monitor works fine on the computer system. ...


Is the power blinking amber? This is a DPMS power-save mode. With the computer disconnected and the monitor on, do you see the colored self-test block floating around? With the monitor on, computer connected, and you still have no image displayed, take a bright flashlight and examine the screen closely. If you can see a very dim display in the screen, the fluorescent tubes which light up the *background* and provide the vivid picture(sort of like a how an x-ray picture viewer works) are defective. The power light blinking may be the power supply sensing the non-functioning tubes or it could just be bad. If your display is under warranty, replace it. If not, trying to have the monitor repaired for this type of problem is almost as costly as a new one--and there won't be an active warranty on anything else that might fail. Hope I helped you.---Rick

The monitor just stopped coming on


If you cannot see a power indicator light when you click the switch on... odds are you have a power supply problem.

If you click the switch on.. the indicator light come on and the screen will not light up - you have a blown fly-back coil.

The resolution ( if you are not technically inclined ) is to purchase a new monitor. The economics of monitors, especially ones that are not flat screens, says it is cheaper to replace them.

If this monitor is an LCD flat screen... you have a blown power supply and the resolution above applies.
