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.

The light blinking under the power button is Hard Drive activity which is normal. Do you have the monitor plugged in and switched on?

and bad xbox video caused. but is not it. as you said.
the menu needs sync lines active. to pops the OSD button menu.
so the monitor is bad.

HP W2007
users guide last page.
This HP product contains mercury in the fluorescent lamp
in the display LCD that might
require special handling at

that means CCFL died, also all do, soon.

Why does my HP vs17 monitor screen keep going to blank black screen like it turned off but did' power button light is still on? Everything is running but no picture.....keeps happening everytime...

this old monitor has 2 issues.
1: it has CCFL tubes that love to burn out (backlamps)
most this old are long go, yell,dim.,blinking or DEAD.
2: push the menu button on front of mon. turn off power saver.

3: if the PC goes to sleep, or hibernete mode (parked)
then that is 100% normal
if you dont like feature then go to windows control panel
click power, ICON and turn off all monitor sleep /hibernate modes.

that assumes windows, no OS stated.

if the lamps are dead,
use flash light pointed to sceen, see data. ? bingo for bad CCFT tubes.
as seen here

I have hp w1907 computer monitor. After window startup my screen go black, the monitor light is blue, so it's on. If I press the the monitor button off then back on.....the screen will show for a second...

x2 test monitor on other pc.
if its ok we fix pC>
if the pc drops the sync lines H/V the monitor goes to sleep mode.
and tells you that.
the old monitors 2004 have timer inside,
does the OSD menu button on front of monitor work
with PC on,? it must.
OSD = on screed display from monitor brain
if yes, makes sure any menu there has the sleep timer off.
if it has it.
this monitor is old older than 2010. and has CCFL backlamps then and older.
so use flash light to see if data is on the screen if yes.
then the CCFL tubes are bad or the HV card inside dead.

yup your your service manaual
advanced OSD page clearly show the power saver clock
turn it off now.
of you cant get the OSD to work find a good PC
plug it in and turn this off below.

sevice manual google is your friend, sometimes.

My hp w2207h goes to sleep

Sounds like your video card is failing. If the video is internal to the motherboard, get a video card and add it to the motherboard if there is an open video slot available

Hp w2007 blank screen

we have here , like 1000s of black screens posted here now.
all the same all with CCFL lamps. that die. same solution.
older monitors have a power saver mode inside it,
push the front button called menu, then see OSD menu
then find and turn off power saver.
if the OSD fails to show up; the CCFL are dead.
this monitor was made in 2007, and 2010 is the starting year
for ending the usage of CCFL (starting on large screens working to small)

im reading your manual for you now, free.
page 4 tells you it has CCFT (T mean Tube, L means lamp)
same same.

now lets look at the page on saver. power

page 7, (its on by default ) oops !

turn saver OFF
see next page 8 and turn DDC ON.
see sleep timer and turn that all off.
if you push factory reset, it the problem begins again.
bad. for you.

you can in fact download the whole manual.
for free. here. the site on the internet in this regard.

all old HP monitors are made for old PC 2000 year.
your PC is not 17 years old i bet.
so all this old saver stuff is now WRONG.
(all this is old school Energy Star , malarkey, )

Monitor goes to sleep mode quickly without video cable

right click on desktop - click properties - click screensaver tab, and dropdown menu to none. this turns off screen saver. For power/hybernate....
start - control panel - power options. Change all pull down menus to "never"

Problem solved.

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.

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.
