Question about HP Vs17 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor
When power is applied the power switch blinks and the screen dosent light up.
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

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.
