My monitor, hp w2007, shows for about 20 seconds when turned on then goes blurry then black how do i fix???

The most common problem that causes the screen to go to a black screen is due to bad capacitors in the screen's power supply board. The bad caps are the cylindrical and will appear to have bulging tops. 66c561df-0d01-416a-ae23-71f3b3965c88.jpg

The power button flashes between blue and yellow. The monitor screen stays black. I have the exact same monitor and switched it on to my other computer, and the computers are both working fine.

perrycdoq, Did you do flashlight test? Is your monitor also "blank"? Did you visit this old net blog? http:/// Do some reading there then come back and tell me if you think same thing might be wrong with your unit. Will you do the troubleshooting or contract out the work to qualified electronics technician to fix units "switch-mode-power-supply / inverter ballast circuit? 12fixlouie

My hp w17e will only work for about 5-7 seconds when I first turn it on, and then goes blank. If I turn it off and back on again, the same thing happens. Is it fixable?

You should do some research here first: It's an old blog, but could offer a solution worth exploring. Just remember to rate this response after you do your research there. 12fixlouie

Monitor will come on, monitor status box will come on and then screen goes blank. How can I fix this?

rwhite97, If your pc is working fine with substitute monitor, and w1907 lcd unit does same (black screen, or blanknblack screen) when connected to a "known good" pc, then you should visit and read some stuff at this 2005 blog. Then learn the flashlight test and what it means. Then go to YOUTUBE for video clips on lcd monitor disassembly and lcd monitor repair if you are into do-it-yourself repair. Remember this!!! Your w1907 unit uses the same basic design and operation principles that ALL brands of ccfl back-lit lcd monitors use. Good luck with the repair. Come back here and leave comment after doing your research/investigation and then rate this response. 12fixlouie

It is probably the power supply, or the inverters.

Similar problem with solution, though it requires you to know something about electronics.*va912*

Acer al1714

The problem may not be the monitor. Acer AL1714 is known for its weak power supply unit. Unplug power supply from monitor. If the green light on monitor comes on but goes out quickly, the power supply is the culprit!
