Question about HP Vs17 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

Open Question

Monitor Comes On then Goes Off After 2-3 Seconds

I have the exact same problem with my HP vs 17e and it does the same thing on other computers. The blue power light stays on but the screen goes black even after many tries and reboots. Please do not send me a subscription repair solution.

Any help would be nice

    No no no. I refuse to pay $100.0 plus when I can buy a new monitor (already have) for $109.00

    What I need is a new backlight inverter which apparently sell lfor $20.00. Where can I get one? I am capable of replacing it myself for free!

it seems that youre monitor has a dry solder problem, try tapping it if the picture resumes to normal for a while than get it resoldered from a technician. if it soesnot solve problem than look out for a burnt resistance.

My monitor comes on for 2 seconds and then goes off. If I turn it off then on again it does the same thing. when it comes on I can see my home page. I know the computer is owrking because I hear it when...

when monitors recieve no input the usually turn off or at least turn black.

it is possible that you have the monitor set to the wrong input, or that the cable is not connected correctly at the computer, sometimes there are multiple connections available, especially when there is both an on-board and an additional graphics driver.

if none of those things are the cause of the problem, there is a chance that the monitor is not receiving enough electricity, this can be very dangerous, try unplugging anything using the same wall socket or fuse and trying then.

I have a HP vs 17e monitor with built in speakers. After my hard diak was reformatted these have stopped working. Any way to get them working again?

Are the drivers installed?
Go to Device manager and make sure there is nothing with yellow question mark next to it.
If there is you are missing a driver.
Let me know how it goes.

HP 1702 Monitor comes on but immediately goes off.

There are five capacitors on the power board which have dried out and need replacement. A reputable repair shop should be able to fix this for around $50.00 including labor.

LCD monitor comes on for about 10 seconds then goes off

It sounds like the power supply board on the monitor may be faulty (that or the backlight).

You could test it on another computer to see if does the same thing (or another monitor on your computer).
If the same problem occurs on this LCD you'll either need to get it repaired under warranty, or pay for it to be repaired. Or just throw it out.
