Re: pavilion f1503

I have a problem with this monitor too. i have been plugging it in and turning it on and i see that the display is working fine but the black light only stays on for a split second. i did take it apart and checked the lights and found that the top black light is not turning on while the bottom one stays on for a split second. i believe there is a problem in the circuitry and if i do need a new piece how much would this cost?

Sounds like you have a problem in the inverter board. When you shut off the monitor the powers is being shunted from the input but the inverter is still energized and thus florescent is still lit. Please keep in mind that the voltage at the inverter can be lethal, so if you plan to open it, please keep this in mind. You can try to open the case and look for a rectangular board with two set of connectors that contain two cables. This is the inverter board and there will be a warning attached. check to see if you have a solder bridge, if not on the inverter, check the power converter or interface. If this does not work, check ebay for the same monitor that is broken: I.E. damaged screen. you can swap the parts until the problem goes away. Good Luck, and do be careful!!!!

What could be wrong with HP Pavilion f1503 screen?

This is usually faulty capacitors. They are in charge of regulating the power of your monitor, with time, they will go bad. The replacements of this capacitors is usually under $10 or $15 usd.
You will need to open the screen, identify, unsolder and buy the new ones to later on solder back and BOILA!

My HP Pavillion F1503 15 inch flat screen monitor has all different color lines on it when I plug it in and it wont turn on??

Have you tried the monitor on another computer? If it works on another computer but just not this one, the first thing I would check would be the video card drivers. If those are fine, you could have a bad video card.

My hppavilion f1503 flat panel lcd monitor screen stay blank

The monitor should be plug and play, and you've already figured out that it's not your computer by plugging into a working monitor.

This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If the power light is blinking on-and-off, or just staying on with no image, that's the problem. There is a slight chance that it could be the light itself, but inverters fail more commonly.

If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old it is, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

THis is a problem of the invertor board.If you are technically able you need to disasseble the monitor and resolder components around the red or yellow inverter transformers.
