Question about HP Compaq Presario FP7317 17" LCD Monitor
I STARTUP MY PC.THE MONITOR GOES DARK.THE GREEN LIGHT INDICATOR IS STILL ON.I CAN PUSH THE BUTTON ON THE MONITOR,AND THE GREEN LIGHT GOES OUT.WHEN I PUSH THE BUTTON AGAIN ,BOTH THE GREEN LIGHT AND THE MONITOR WILL COME ON.AFTER A FEW MINUTES OR LESS THE MONITOR WILL AGAIN GO DARK. WILLIE RUSHING
I have the same problem. If the computer goes into power save mode for the monitor the VA912b won't come back on. The LED blinks and it makes a repeating "bloop" noise.
I have no solution other then what was stated. Turn it off for several minutes and turn it back on. Sometimes you have to try this repeatedly before it works. (I have two VA912b monitors that I bought at the same time and both are connected to the same pc - this only happens to one of them)

My bet is that your monitor is on it's way out. If this is true, it will get worse until it gets to a point where it no longer works at all. Connecting the monitor to another computer should confirm my suspicion. The monitor has probably developed a problem with some capacitors inside. The parts are not expensive, but finding a shop to do the work at all may be a challenge. If you're handy with a soldering iron you might want to have a try at it.

Common problem in this model is bad DC filter caps, that will be the first place to look.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
