It's your backlight adapter. You will have to open up the monitor to get to the backlight board and redo some soldering and maybe replace the four transistors. I just did a google search for the name of the monitor and there are plenty of posts out there to help. I had the same issue with my monitor. I redid about 15 or 20 solder joints and that fixed it. There transisters cost about $5 on ebay if the resoldering doesn't work. The problem is what is called cold solder joints. These are used in mass production circuitry, which is why so many electronics go out. These joints are a dull gray and hot solder joints are a shiny silver, these should be replaced, but just google the name of the monitor name and you should see plenty of others that had the same issues years ago.

Hello,

Check the ac adapter. I think you will find the power adapter is switching on and off. The adapters on this model have an issue that causes your type of problem. You can break the seal on the adapter and open it up and replace dead parts but then you can't seal it back up right. We carry he adapters, let me know if you need one.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

Problems with my monitor


See HP 1703 album. You need to remove the old solder from the 4 inductors, clean the inductor leads and resolder, also look for purple caps with bulging tops, replace them.

Monitor going black


HP's are known for bad capacitors in the power supply.
Replacing them is simple if you know how..not so simple if you don't.
Try your local TV repair centre. It should not cost alot to have the capacitors replaced.

Hope it helps =)

Screen goes blank after 2 seconds!


Blank Blank or can you see shadows?
If you see shadow images then the backlight or inverter has failed
If it is blank blank then graphics card or connector/cable problem
Does that help

Monitor going black


My HP f1703 is almost 3 years old and started having this same problem. My fix got the display to stay on. Don't know how long this fix will work. I set the monitor brightness to 51 and contrast to 41. You may have to adjust to your levels to your appropriate enviroment. Levels may determine how long the monitor stay operational. Do NOT set your monitor brightness to factory levels it will just start to recreate the problem again. Solution: The monitor should be on with the blue button lighted. If the screen is acting up (you turn it on and the display lights up and then it turns off within 2 to 5 seconds) Try decreasing the brightness level down as much as possible. Wait 15 to 30 seconds and see if the display comes back to life. If not, turn the monitor off and on again and try the procedure again, if necessary. Cause: I believe the monitor brightness level, set at 100 by the factory setting, is over driving the display and causing the protection circuit to cut off the flouresent lamps that light the display. HP had an issue with this display, and had a notice to replace them if the problem occurred during the warranty period. They extended the warranty period from Jun 04 to Feb 06. Check with HP Technical Support to determine if your monitor is cover.
