You have 6 screws 4 hold the base on and 2 on the backside of speakers. From their you can open it.
If you still have the monitor that is.

Vs15 (Gray, Metallic) 15 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor: you mash the power button and the light will come ...

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 HP monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

You need thin flat blade screw driver to crack open the case, it is almost the same as VS19, more likely to havebad caps with bulging tops, see pictures here:

HP vs15 no problem

Please check first if your LCD monitor is still under Warranty period, if yes, then I recommend to bring the unit to authorized service center to properly diagnose & fix the problem, because if you open it yourself & probably broken its seal then the Warranty will be Void & other problem/s that may arise / found will no longer be covered by their free service / part replacement.

If no longer covered by a Warranty, then you can open it by yourself, by turning (counterclockwise) its lock screws to open its back cover & check the power button connections if loose/broken. regards

Is the power light on? If not, recicle the monitor. If it is on, then maybe the back lighting is the culprit.
I have a similar problem, and the repair is more expendive than buying a new one.

Hp vs15, black screen, power light goes on and off like it is in sleep mode

Monitor is dead. The LCD inverter board probably went out and needs replacing. More than likely, it will cost you over $100 to get it fixed. It's better to spend the money on a new monitor.
