Question about HP Pavilion F1703 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

My new 21' flatscreen monitor keeps shutting off :(

I recently (5 months ago) bought a large LCD flatscreen for my home pc 21 inch i think and just recently (past 2 weeks) the monitor keeps going to blackscreen and the only way i can get it to come back is to manually turn the monitor off the on again. when u do it says auto detect:(analog input) then it will be fine for another 10-20 minutes then it will shut down again and I repeat the process. The longer it has been turned on the quicker the intervals sometimes having to repeat every 1-2 minutes Ive checked the plug ins everything appears to be okay???? Help please :( thankyou...Lore

    I have an "HP vs 19" monitor. Ever since the expiration (and then uninstallation) of some free-trial-software, after wiggling the mouse out of hibernation, the desktop dissapears into a useless black screen within 5 seconds. I then have to press the monitor's BLUE power button (AKA the monitor is still ON) off, only to find when I turn it on again, the desktop screen goes black after 5 seconds AGAIN. Only after turning it on and off again and again, about 7 times, will it stay on - at least until the next morning.

    The free trial software was for recording audio (e.g. voice) to an audio CD track. As my mom had made quite a few files on it already but did not want to pay the full $125.00 price for it, she had to both ERASE the inaccessible BLOCKED files, and UNINSTALL the program.

    My tower operates on Windows XP, if that means anything. I believe it is a software issue. We had also just finished installing Microsoft Office 2007 (did you too?).

    I plugged in my newer HP monitor and got results that were different, but similar. This newer monitor stayed on for 30 seconds before changing to the black screen. Note: both monitors' power buttons STAYED BLUE; they neither changed to orange (the monitor's Low-Power or Sleep mode) nor did their power button lights turn off (neither color on).

    I hope this helps clarify the issue!

Usually when an LCD display shuts off on it's own this can be a power supply issue. I would say if you checked all the connections you may want to contact the manufacturer. If it is only a few months old then you should be able to get it replaced under warranty.

Also, you may have an auto shut off feature enabled on the display itself. You may want to go through the display's menu to very that this is not the case.

LCD monitor shuts down every after 2-3 seconds

dustcore025, Need a little more info here. Do you know age of monitor? Was it or did it display a "perfect' image on it the day before? Is it under warranty? How far are you willing to go to try and repair this thing? Do you know how to "part" the snap together plastic back cover from the bezel, after removing the pedestal? This sounds to me like a Switch-mode-power-supply or Inverter problem that occurs when some Electrolytic Filter Capacitors get a little bit TIRED of being constantly subjected to high temperatures near heatsinks that are used to keep semiconductors within operating limits. You can determine how bad this may be if you can do a test and remember what happens. Here is what to do. Make sure PC is fully booted displaying WIN desktop or some other screen. Next, with someone to keep hitting the CTRL or SP bar key every 20-40 seconds while you reconnect both cables of your MM17 back to the PC video port and ac outlet. Now try to turn on the monitor and note exactly what you see and for how long. Did it have a sharp clear image, even for 1-2 seconds? did the screen go black? OK! Next thing is to shine a bright flashlight onto the screen 2 inches away from where you know there was something a few seconds ago. Try it at different angles and not if you see anything. get back to me with results of test. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ BYE for now.

ViewSonc VX924 LCD Monitor

Check the information at Viewsonic's website regarding their warranty:

If you have your proof-of-purchase and it shows the monitor is less than a year old, it would be covered. You would need to follow the procedure on their website to have the unit repaired or replaced, but it would not be your job to try to fix it.
