This is not a driver issue. There is a hardware problem. You will have to replace the lights, or purchase a new monitor.

Please rate me.

Thanks and good luck, let me know how it turns out.

Your problem is usually caused by a bad power supply. You should be able to do the repair yourself, if just requires replacing 6 capacitors on the power supply board. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to disassemble the monitor and repair the power supply board.

Shine a bright light on the screen and press the Menu button... if you can barely see the outline of the menu come up in the middle of the screen, it means that your inverter / backlight needs to be replaced. You can get a new backlight / inverter for relatively cheap, so if you can do the repair yourself, it's worthwhile.
Otherwise it's the LCD panel itself, in which case you should go monitor shopping.

My hp vs19e monitor has dark screen and blinking power button.


Could be the power module or the backlights (more likely backlights if the "luminance" varies)- $156 sounds a little high but not insane, but you realize cost of replacement is lower, do you not?

Monitor comes on, then goes back off, rinse, repeat.


Well here is a test you can do. When the monitor goes black, take a flash light and hold at it a angle towards the monitor, if you can still faintly see the image then you have a blacklight/inverter issue. Another common issue with this is the capacitors on the inside. They will also cause this. If you dont see an image then the inverter will need replacing. As the steps for replacing all of this are quite long, ill post a few helpful tuts :).

For replacing the backlight:

For checking/replacing bad capacitors:

I know these arent your monitor but its generally the same idea with all of them. If this doesnt work it will be a inverter issue and if it comes to that just let me know and ill be glad to help :D

I have a Princeton VL1918 LCD monitor. Need help


Hello,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. If you don't see any bad capacitors then the next thing would be bad CFL (backlight tubes) in the screen itself. If it is that then the monitor needs to be replaced because of the tech skills needed to replace then. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Hi...there,
It's seems your backlight lamp is burnt out... if you are still under warranty... call the mfg. up and get a replacement lamp.
