Hp vs15, black screen, power light goes on and off like it is in sleep mode

I have an hp vs15 that is about a year and a half old. It is showing only a black screen when turned on. The power light goes on and then off as if someone had turned it off manually. So, I unplugged it and then plugged it in again. I unhooked it from the back of my computer and then reconnected it and rebooted my computer. The only thing this accomplished is that the monitor power light now blinks as if it were in sleep mode. I still have no picture (black screen of doom). If anyone has any idea's or can offer any assistance it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Loss

My HP vs15 has this problem and the best solution I found short of buying a new monitor is to give the monitor a good whack on the top of the bezel, or to lift it to about six inches above the desk and brop it - I do it all the time.

I have no solution, but apparently that is about how long those monitors last. Ours just did exactly the sme thing at the same age.

Monitor is dead. The LCD inverter board probably went out and needs replacing. More than likely, it will cost you over $100 to get it fixed. It's better to spend the money on a new monitor.

No DVi input, then computer goes to sleep

Hi publicworker,

I had a similar problem whereas my monitor went to sleep mode after a few minutes. I'm running an HP LP 2065 in dual mode with another HP flat screen. However, I did resolve the issue after resetting the output settings.

How to do that:
  • right mouse click on the desktop
  • select graphic options
  • output to
  • extended desktop
Maybe some changings/modification will help you too.

Monitor goes black but shows icons...

I'll assume this is an LCD panel screen.

If what you are saying is the screen shows up and then goes dim or starts dim, and you can see a dark image of the system starting up and then displaying Windows...

Your problem is a bad CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) at the top of the LCD panel.

If the screen is totally blank, then it may be the power inverter.

You can find many websites that sell these parts, but make sure you have the right model.

If you feel comfortable with working on computers, you can replace this part yourself. Otherwise, you may want to pay a technician to do it. Make sure to get a fixed price quote before authorizing the work

Here is a website on LCD repair for laptops, but it the same principal for display monitors.

Is the power light on? If not, recicle the monitor. If it is on, then maybe the back lighting is the culprit.
I have a similar problem, and the repair is more expendive than buying a new one.

Screen goes black

It could be a bad backlight bulb.

Monitor stays asleep

Check in the BIOS and see what your monitor settings are.
Did you change the sleep mode or power off mode? What do you do to make it come back on? Sounds like it might be getting too hot and/or going bad. Try it on another machine and see what it does. Also try another video card because the video card could be going bad.
