Sorry, not really a solution, but may help point you in right direction. I have similar or same problem with my monitor but is an f1903 (HP). I recommend you look at the f1903 board postings to see those answers. Several seem identical for fixes and fix may possibly be cheap, but unfortunately noone has posted how to open the monitor up to actually check it inside. This is the tricky part, as seems no catches or buttons are present and removing back screws do not let the monitor case open without some type of special trick or move. If you figure it out, please tell us all! Thanks

Lg Flatron-w1942T Problem: Black display plz help when i swich on the monior it shows video for single moment and then black .au io is ok my video card is ok

Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

Hp s2031 goes dark, and sleep light goes out as if it.s unplug.

if the sleep light goes out, its probably not the inverter...
I'd suspect a fault with the power board.
It may not be viable to replace, unless you can find someone experienced to disassemble and diagnose the fault on this board.

Do lcd monitors over heat and shut off screen image while monitor is still on. i have a dell monitor and an hp vs17e. the hp monitor has started dropping the screen, going to black. i can turn it on and it...

It is possible that your the lcd inverter board is failing or possibly the back light, i suggest taking the back cover off the monitor and checking the power board for leaking or slightly buldged capacitors, to spot this youll have a dark liquid traces on the cap or on the board, the top of the cap must be flat not bulged, if there are any they'll need to be replaced, you can get them from electronic stores like Maplins, and if you are able to use a soldering iron desolder the the ones of the board and solder the new ones on. Make sure you get the exact farad rating of the caps, it dosent matter to much about voltage as long as it is equal or above the voltage stated on the cap. Also insure that they are replaced the correct way around, check this before desoldering from board.

Turned it on a minute later went black

Good day sir/ma'am hi, if you monitor turns black, here are the more common probable reasons;
  1. Your PC went to standby the screen saver kicks in, just reset your PC then the monitor will power on again.
  2. If not, your PC is not giving you video signal, check to see if another monitor will work, we then know what part is bad, the monitor or the PC.
  3. If the monitor is the culprit, then your monitor's back light or inverter board just went bad. you need to replace it.
There are usually two main circuit board on your monitor, the power supply board and the main board, at this point, you need a professional to do the work.
The process is opening the monitor and locate the LCD screen connection to the main board, to check if the contact is snug. we then test. if still nothing happens, Then we go to the power supply board, to check for connection problem, It would help if there are light signs, like blinking, orange, red, green and the likes? Anyway, if the power supply board is not the faulty one, we substitute the main board with a good one and test to see if it will work, test again. If still no respond, we test a new LCD unit, then test, at this point the monitor is working already, if not, we then replace the power supply board. Huh, very expensive, we already have a new monitor. Reminders, these are to be done by a trained personnel. If you attempt to service this, its expensive, so I suggest you let the service shop do this for you to replace only the faulty part.

theres only one solution to the problem you have to replace the whole power supply board .its easier to replace them than finding and soldiering the defective parts like the capacitor on the board .u can just replace the power supply board if u think the power has a problem. if it doesnt work then u have to replace also the main board or the board connecting the rgb cable.its more expensive to replace the board but its worth it. ur lcd will work better and its easy to put them on the lcd casing .

You may want to check your power and connection cables are not showing bare wire, which is the metal hanging out of the rubber insulation cord. So just check for that and if not that I would call HP.

Hp vs19

If it displays the 'no input' type message on the display, it's likely a cable or perhaps the main board in the monitor has gone out. However, if the display is completely black, no backlight, etc. or if the backlight flashes once then stays off, and possibly emits a high pitched squeeling sound, it is very likely that the capacitors on the power supply board for the inverter(s) have gone bad. Apparently there are a few different versions of this same monitor, but all seem similar, and many seem to have problems with the capacitors going bad over time. There is information floating around on this monitor on the internet ( which may or may not be the same as yours, but pulling it apart to replace the capacitors is a $5-10 and 1-2 hour shot in the dark, and seems to be within the capabilities of anyone with the ability to solder. Just be careful of the small surface mount components which are all over the back sides of these boards... The bad capacitors should be fairly obvious, with bulged or ruptured tops, possibly leaking fluid. The are most likely going to be the 1000uF 10V (or 25V depending on the model) capacitors towards one edge of the board. On mine, there were 6, 3 of which had swollen. Replace them with the same (higher voltage rating is fine, but not lower) specification parts, and it should be back in order.
