Question about HP vs19 (Silver) 19" LCD Monitor
I've had this monitor for about 2 years and all of a sudden it turned off and will not go on again.
I have an HP vs19d and one day it wouldn't go on. Just dead, no lights, no nothing. It was just days past the warranty. We hooked it up to another computer, same thing. We hooked a different monitor to the first computer and it works fine. So the problem is isolated to the monitor. It lasted about one year and one week. Is there anything I can try before I just pitch it?
I too have an HP vs19 lcd monitor that the power stopped working around 18 months of use.
I have been searching trying to find a website that maybe someone had taken photos of their repairs on these vs19 lcd monitors.
Haven't found a site yet.
I would like to know before I attempt to open up the back of my monitor, the capacitors you are speaking of, are these soldering or do they just plug into the power board?
I'll be hitting the radio shack to see if I can get these capacitors.

The "best" solution (above) by hovic worked to fix a HP vs19d monitor I found in a dumpster.I replaced capacitors C822, C823 and C824. Mine were "1000 uf 10v 105 degree celcius" located in one corner of the power supply board(It's the board under a metal cover that the power supply cord plugs into, and the numbers are printed on the board) they were also puffed up on the end with a small amount of brown ooze on the top of one.When replacing notice that they have a positive and negative clearly marked so pay attention .I also had two others that looked slightly puffed up but my electronics supply store http://www.eresourcing.com/ didn't have them in stock so I decided to only replace the three and give it a try and it works good .I'm using it now and yesterday it was in a dumpster and I have about $6.00 and about one hour hands on time. THANKS HOVIK YOU DA MAN

Here's a solution I came up with:
I had the same problem with a monitor at my office, just a little over a year old. I didn't want to trash it so I thought at least I'll pull it apart and see what's inside :).
I opened the case (which I *delicately* used a screwdriver to pry open inch by inch) Then I located the power board (which is where the power cord plug goes in from the outside). I removed this from the chassis and inspected. First I read some other online posts where I guy said to look for swollen radial capacitors as a possible cause. Well every darn one is swollen, that's the way they're supposed to be (as I've since been told by the pros at my local circuitry store). So, I was first sidetracked by this suggestion, and after getting past that and looking closer I noticed that in one corner of the power board, there are three "cylindrical" capacitors about 3/4" high with an "X" etched in the metal top (the sides are wrapped in a black or green or blue plastic). I did notice that the metal tops of these (where the X is) was swollen whereas it was flat on other cylindrical capacitors on the board, plus there was something brown oozing out of the top.
I took it to my local electronic circuitry store in Rancho Cucamonga CA and for about $4.95 bought 3 new capacitors, the guy at the store was kind enough to offer to install them for me no charge, in 20 minutes they were in place. I bought him a 6 pack :)
I took it home and with crossed fingers plugged it in. It powered right up, and I am writing to you now from that monitor, 3 months later :)
It's worth a try, but if you aren't confident enough and are thinking to trash it, don't throw it away, send me a message I'll pay for you to ship it to me. :)

I have the same monitor. The power regulator died. I guess the PWM controller FAN6701 would be burned. You should bring it to a electrician or buy a new one.

Hi there, dead set unit, no lights, no nothing means a power supply section problem. check the circuit, a fuse, a resistor or regulator is defective. do some test. ty

My VS19 is two years old and just died. Will not switch on at all. Opened it up and found the three overpressured, leaking capacitors and just ordered new ones from Mouser Electronics - $0.50 each. Ordered the 25V ones since the 10V OEM ones seem to be underspec'd. Will let you know how it works out. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hallo zusammen. Ich hatte die gleichen Probleme! Der Monitor konnte nur für ganz kurze Zeit eingeschaltet werden, dann erlosch die blaue LED wieder. Offenbar ein systematischer Fehler dieses Gerätetyps. Die 3 Kondensatoren auswechseln und die Sache läuft wieder......

I have HP vs19 and it suddenly blacked out while in use on its 2 year anniversary! Seems to have lasted longer than other peoples monitors here. I tried other computers and monitors. Im stuck now on whether I should get a new HP monitor...or another name brand like Samsung?? Any Suggestions?? Thanks in advance! :)

Replace capacitors C822, C823 and C824 1000uF 25V on the power supply card.

I haven't got a lot of experience in electronics but i have fixed a few power supplies for dell lcd monitors. Seems that the problem for the HP VS19 is in the fan7601 vf48 chip. I have yet to find one of these on the internet for purchase. I have found fan7601G and N and etc... but not this chip. Will any of the chips work or does it have to be the vf48 chip. Also is there a place to purchase the whole power supply? I don't see them on ebay or anywhere by searching google.
