Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Our HP L1706 monitor has worked perfectly with our Mac Mini for the last two + years. The last four days when we turn it and the computer on a green light on the monitor flashes, no picture, and maybe an hour or more later the monitor will finally display the Mac Mini desktop. Do you think the monitor is dying? Or has some setting on the computer or monitor inadvertently been changed?

Make sure that it is directly connected to the Mac Mini and not through some other device like TV Tuner, Video capture device.
If it is already directly connected then the picture tube might be reaching the end of it's life, You need to replace.

Dear Sir, I have installed Ubuntu Studio 10. Display card Intel 82915/GV/910 GL Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 04) with HP L1706 17" LCD monitor which just supports 1024 X 768 resolution with...

that is what happens using new pc, new os. like linux
and then using old monitor ! welcome to PnP H3LL

1024 reso is very very old. we long ago exceed this era.
both MS and linux do not try to support the old dead no longer supported by makers, monitors.
try to imagine how many different monitors were made in last 30 years. vast.
then try to support the ones not supported now.
you do know the HP does not support 10 year old products right?
so knowing that one fact, how can Ubuntu...
study the limits of PnP, plug and play, its great but not magic,
it cant pull rabbits (dead) out of hats, now.
Btw, Walfart has new monitor for $46 , that works pnp.
ever consider a cheap upgrade?

now the real place to ask, not fixya (guess yah)

My monitor HP L1706 does not ignite but the green light blinks

Your screen is in sleep mode.
Its does not receive a signal from the pc.
Check for loose connections or a damaged cable.

Your monitor could also have a defect internal.
Maybe also your graphic card in the pc.

Good luck.

L1706 monitor power light flashes green/amber

A flashing power light often means the monitor isn't getting a signal. When you turn the monitor off and back on, do you see the brand logo for a few seconds? Try plugging it into a different computer to see if it comes on.

If plugging it into another computer doesn't work, it may be a bad power circuit in the monitor. A common problem with monitors is the capacitors going bad. If you're handy with a soldering iron, you can try replacing them yourself. Look here for pictures and instructions: Fix an LCD Monitor

My HP Monitor Model No: L1706 problem

I sure sounds like you have backlight problem, since when the VGA cable is connected the power LED turns GREEN and blinks when VGA cable is disconnected, it means the video signal is getting to the monitor OK, so more likely the problem will be in the monitor, but just to be sure, you should also try this monitor with another PC first.
Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed HP and other monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further.

HP L1706- screen is blank when I switch on

First if you have a extra monitor try to plug it in and see if it works. If not then check your video card. or get into the computer and try and remove and reseat the memory. Sometimes by just doing that can solve the problems
