Supplying power to the monitor to get it to work

I have a HP Pavilion F50 flat screen monitor and I have lost the power cord that supplies the monitor. I want to use it only I can not find the cord to power the monitor. Can you help me with the specs on getting the proper cord to power the F50. The connection for the power is in the back and is round with tines that insert in the back of the monitor along with the VGA cord that connects to the computer. (which I have) Help me please with the info that I need to get this up and running again. Thank you

Re: supplying power to the monitor to get it to work

The correct Power supply can be purchased on ebay. It is not a "D shell Connector. The correct power supply is 12v 4.16 A DC.

I think what you need is a "D" shell connector.. see if the one that fits your PC Power Supply will fit into the Monitor.. if so then purchase another the same. It's called a "D Shell" Power Cord.

No picture at all. speakers work though.

gstanz52, Oh, Oh, looks like someone needs a new wide screen lcd monitor!!! What is the "date of manufacture" from the rear label???? Maybe the "black screen of death" has finally caught up with your 6 to 8 year old lcd monitor. I would guess that the internal electronic ballast circuit (inverter) has failed and will not supply 500 to 1000 vac to light-up the cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" any more!!! Next thing to do is go HERE: Do some reading to determine if a possible DIY refurbishment of your unit is in your future. If you want to try refurbishing unit, then do some reading in the fixya profiles of "budmrtn" "buddymc" "12fixlouie" (me) for more information and or do comment to this post. Then you should watch some video clips at YOUTUBE of owners/ technicians disassembling and repairing typical CCFL back-lit lcd monitors.
My advice to you is: Get new higher resolution Wide Screen unit. Then and only then, attempt a refurb job on F50 to keep as a working antique spare monitor. 12fixlouie

No power light; screen dead; no physical damage; computer crash with windowns updates; monitor stopped working too.

Try it on another PC first, if it still does not work then you will have to open it up. If you are going to DIY repair, then please read below and look at my albums so you will know what to look for inside.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

MY monitor flashes, goes black then comes back on. This happens once in a whyle.

well this might be because the power cord of the monitor is loose contact so check it. if it is ok then check the power options settings in the control panel- performances and maintenance- power options- power schemes you will find turn off monitor option select the required option from drop down list and apply the settings.

good luck

Blinking screen

I'm seeing alot of leaking caps on the power supply cause this issue. It can also be T-Control board faulty, or even main board. Is it flickering constantly, or once warmed up?

The problem is with the inverter board. It is pulling down the main power supply and cycling it on and off (crowbaring). If you disconnect the power supply cable to the board, the power supply will stay up and the power on lamp will cycle as normal. There seems to be a problem with one of the high voltage transformers on the board. I will let you know if I can find a suitable replacement of if there is a way to get an inverter board inexpensively. Good luck!
