Question about HP Pavilion F1903 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I very much disagree with buddymc's solution to this problem. I am looking at an hp pavilion f1903 right now with EXACTLY the same problem that you described. The screen will come on for a second or two, and immediately shut off.
If you look closely, however, I suspect you might notice something more to the problem. The screen is actually still on! If you hold a flashlight up to the screen after it "turns off," you might notice that it has text/pictures still on the screen, although they are very hard to see. If this is the case, then your only problem is a broken backlight. Although fixing a broken backlight is no easy task, there is an online tutorial here (http://inventgeek.com/Projects/BacklightFix/Page1.aspx) if you want to check it out.
I highly doubt your problem is a bad power supply in the monitor. If that was the problem I doubt the monitor would come on at all, even for a second.

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. 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.
