Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen is partially blank

About the bottom 3rd of the screen is blacked out. I assume this is a hardware problem, but what would I need to repair it....the entire screen or the LCD inverter? or something else? And tips to do the repair myself????

Yup the LCD has failed. The nice thing is that this series uses the same LCD as a lot of other Hp/compaq products.

The LCD is easy to remove on this series, not a lot of screws and wires.

these screen models should be compatible with your machine:

Ebay has lots of these available right now.

If you want to match it up exactly and be sure, then pull out the LCD and look at it directly. All the screws are at the corners of the front of the display. You may need a Torx screwdriver (its been a while since i saw this series).

My HP Monitor refuses to turn on.. It's on but the screen is black

martineillas, Go here first, and do some reading. Then do standard flashlight test to determine "full" or "partial" shutdown mode of the internal power supply. Look at rear of monitor for "date of manufacture" ?? If screen is black and blank, then supply is in full shutdown mode. If not blank, only black, then 5vdc ok, 12vdc in shutdown mode (bad) !!! Do some extensive reading in the fixya profiles of the technicians here on FIXYA. Plenty of repair documentation already been written on this type of lcd monitor repair. Always state "model number" and approximate total "on" hours of use when contacting fixya for help. Good luck with repair. 12fixlouie

Blue flashing power light only

kdavey53, "switch-mode-power-supply" for X193W is probably in shutdown mode due to having detected a FAULT CONDITION with itself or another circuit. Black screen = partial shutdown?? Black and Blank screen = full shutdown??? Which is it? Are you going to repair unit or use warranty? Have you seen video clips at youtube for "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" dealing with the most common black screen problem with ALL BRANDS of lcd displays? FYI visit or or try wikipedia and search "capacitor plague" !!! Read more of my responses to other BLACK/BLANK screen owners for more options that you may have open to you. If not inclined to DIY repair, then have deep pocket$$! Your best shot and what I would do is buy new AND repair X193W to keep as working spare unit. Might only cost $10 in parts on a DIY. But you will need to do the research and understand the problem that you monitor is having. Do you understand what makes your screen "light-up"? Have you any of the new style "curlie-Q screw-in energy saving CFL light bulbs? Same basic principle! Just implemented in different way to produce RAW WHITE LIGHTon reverse side of what you been looking at. Look see only FYI and then you will know. I'm lmistyrel on aim or 12fixlouie on fixya Hope this was of some use.

Sony sdm-hs75p runs for 5 odd minutes then screen goes blank?

h_e_l_l_f_i_, Have you performed the flashlight test after the screen goes "BLANK" ?? No!! You will not find the "flashlight" test listed in the OWNERS manual!! The test is a quick evaluation of the STATE of the units "switch-mode-power-supply". Did you repair the power supply to get online to fixya? The more info you tell me about your LCD monitor the better I can assist you. Is the unit really "BLANK" or is it just "BLACK"?? Can you SEE the WIN-desktop when a bright "flashlight" is held 1" from the screen at different angles? If you can see a faint image being displayed it means the SMPS is in partial shutdown and still powering the VGA to LCD interface board. If unit is both BLACK and BLANK, then SMPS is likely in full shutdown mode! I will assume that when you stated "runs" for 5 minutes, that it would display normal text and graphics as usual and NOT be wearing a pair of NIKE's runners footwear? Yes! From your description it would lead me to think that your SONY has a SMPS/INVERTER problem. You failed to state the age and or approximate TOTAL "ON" hours the unit has. (hrs/day x 350days x Years since DOM). It makes a difference in whether I tell you to trade up to a wide screen or have it repaired(refurbished with new SMPS/INVERTER or just rehab the SMPS on your own. hellfi, surely, after reading this you WILL go to YOUTUBE, (just fyi) and view some of the longer video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and typical "LCD monitor repair"!! You WILL be impressed at how much you will learn about how "the black screen of death" is dealt with. If this response helps in any way, please rate it on fixya. 12fixlouie lmistyrel @ Get back to me if further assistance is required asap!!!
