Laptop monitor problem.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop for about 7 months and just three days ago as it was switched on the monitor seemed to have gone dead.Tried to shut down and open it again after a couple of minutes and the monitor screen looked like a mixture of smugged colours.

Hp w2007 lcd monitor, osd lockout & main menu display

Once you realize that resetting it doesn't work (as I did ) take it apart. This instruction is for an hp w2007 only! It's the one I just fixed. Remove the three screws holding the base on. The one in the middle is hard to see because it's in a hole but readily accessible. Remove the black back cover by inserting a skinny screwdriver between it and the gray housing. Start in the middle on any of the four corners.Pry it up and work your way to the corners. At the corners pry up with more force and the plastic tabs will snap off. Trust me, just do it!! Once you have snapped the plastic tab at all four corners the back will lift right off. locate the three small wires that go into the menu, -, +, select switches. Cut the three wires and tape them off separately. Do this so they can't touch the case or each other. Do to the wires that are going back toward the monitor! The ones going to the switch do not need to be taped. The switches are now dead. Is that clear? Cut the wires going to the switch and tape the cut ends that go back to the monitor. You will no longer be able to manually adjust anything but I never used the adjustments anyhow. The PC will take care of it for you. I did this 8 hours ago and it's still working perfect! Before I made the fix I was getting OSD Lockout, no input signal, it was scrolling through the menu and the screen was going blank every 5 minutes!! It will work!!!

Monitor is missing pins?

If the monitor is working correctly, there is no problem. Not all 15 pins are used, therefore there is usually two missing.

Hp pavilion m9250f pc + hpw 2408h monitor setting up webcam

Now I'm not 100% certain on this BUT I do believe that the HP 2408 does not have an incorporated webcam. The little dot on the left hand side, that you're undoubtedly confusing with a webcam, is in fact an ambient light sensor. You're going to have to stump up some cash and go out and buy a webcam I'm afraid.
