Question about HP Computers & Internet
I have a HP Pavilion VS17X Monitor. In the last couple weeks when I turn the power on the light just blinks. When it first started, it would come on after 20-30 minutes.....now it won't come on at all. Please help!!
You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. You may be able to get the repalcement capacitors at your local Radio Shack, if not there are several sites and the internet you can order from. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.
