Question about HP w1907 LCD Monitor
Check the settings for 'Power Options' in your control panel; it may be set up to 'sleep' after some short period.
- Open the 'Start' menu - Select 'Control Panel' - Open the 'Power Options' folder to check or change settings.
CRT monitors could develop 'burn-in' and having them go inactive after a period on non-use made sense to avoid damaging the phosphor but LCD monitors don't suffer from that so the feature isn't as useful as it once was.

Go into Control Panel, then to Power Options.
In XP, you see a selection for Turn Off Monitor. Adjust that setting as desired.
In Vista, you'll see Choose when to turn off display on the left side. Choose that option and select the desired time setting to turn the display off.

trevor_jody, I hope you have valid HP warranty! If not , then you will need to do some reading at this blog: http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/ The cheapest way to fix is DIY. But you and only you can determine if you are able to do the required work necessary to refurbish the unit. Swap-in a good unit to use while you are researching the common fixes for your 2338h unit. Your unit still works!!! Just not long enough! Your goal is to make it work for 20 million seconds. Try these other web sites also. www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm (site run by "buddymc") and www.badcaps.net , www.lcdparts.net Next thing to do will be to understand the "flashlight test" to determine state of your monitor's "switch-mode-power-supply". Is it in full or partial shutdown mode when screen goes BLACK or BLANK and BLACK? If you can still see Win-desktop after screen goes black, then SMPS is in partial shutdown mode. Blank n black=full shutdown. Do some reading in my and "buddymc" and "budmrtn" fixya profiles by typing our fixya "nicknames" into the "search for solutions or.... " bar at top of fixya screen and then hit enter or click search button. You will also find DIY video clips at YOUTUBE that will also be of some use too!! All that we ask you to do after doing your research is to come back to fixya and tell us if we were of some help and that you have learned something about how your monitor functions and if you have been able to make the decision to DIY or contract out the work needed to restore your unit to like-new condition. Bye for now. 12fixlouie
