    SAME PROBLEM. jUST RAN OUT OF ITS WARRANTY.

    Don"t even know at this point if it can be repaired or what the cost would be?

    Monitor began to go out. Sometimes it would work, but then eventually wouldn't work at all. Is there a defect with this model?

  • Anonymous Jan 20, 2008

    I have the exact same problem as deedee. My moniter is 16 mo old. It's just dead. I did the basic steps to check it out.
    I hope someone has a solution to fix it. I am not holding my breath.

    The monitor is 13 months old. Same problem. I push the power button and the light flashes blue. Push it again and nothing happens. Dead monitor.

    I had the same problem. It was working fine and the next thing it was dead. The power light flashed once and went out. I connected an older monitor to my computer and it worked fine. I called HP and since my warranty ran out they would not even let me talk to technical support unless I paid 50.00. I'm going to take it to a local electronic repair shop and find out what the problem is. I can't afford to buy a new one, especially since this one is only about a year and a half old.

    I had the same problem. One minute it was fine and the next it was dead. The power light flashed once and went out. I called HP and they wouldn't even let me talk to technical support unless I paid them 50.00 because my warranty ran out. I hung up on them. I can't afford to buy a new one especially since this one is only a year and a half old.

    had two of them die just after the warranty was up, i opened it up and replaced the capacitors, just like the guy said below now it works fine. Hp just puts cheep capacitors in them...

  • Anonymous Apr 23, 2008

    Yes. VS19E. Warranty was up by one month and monitor started cycling between dead and working. Seems to be when the monitor warms up with power. Worked with HP assistance and they were of no help. They said the warranty was up and that is it. Planned obsolescence sounds like to me.

    Instead of a yellow light . it has a blue ligth and I can see nothing. Tell me what to do.

  • Anonymous Jan 13, 2009

    I left the office, came back the monitor was black and did not light up again.

  • Anonymous Jan 22, 2009

    Yes, I have the same problem. I finially removed the back cover and saw the 3 caps. that are bad. Now I have to find where I can purchase the new ones? (maybe I should have saved my old "Flux Capacitor") Will update on my results.

    Yup I replaced the 3 bads ones, now everything is great! thanks Jimbo

Most of the time the power capacitors on the power supply have gone bad. There are three of them in the power supply, 1000uf 12v on the left side of the dual transistor heat sink looking at it with the heat sink toward you. Go to Radio Sh and get three new ones(1000uf 12v min, as long as they fit 1500-2000uf 12-16v? does not matter) and solder them in. The hardest part is taking the front basil off the monitor. there are no screws, insert something strong and thin where the two half's come together and carefully start it apart. The LCD unit comes right out along with the power switch board. Remove the two screws at the bottom of the power board. The for back-light plug in's and the two screws from the main AC plug. The other plug in is a multi wire that unplugs from the other board. Replace the capacitors and reassemble. This goes wrong with this model all the time and is not as hard to do as you may think. What do you have to loose? Most likely save $150 bucks.

There are 3 bad capacitors on the pwr supply bd (C822, C823, C824) I changed them for a buck each and the monitor worked.
Here are links to a pic showing the 3 capacitior lower right just above the data cable and the fix.

I posted to this list about a month ago. Monitor would not power up. Here is an update. I was able to fix the problem. There were two capacitors on the power board near a heat sink that looked bad. The two capacitors were radial type. The bottom of the capacitor should be flat. These two had a slight dome to the bottom. So I took a chance and replcaed them. I am now sitting here typing this memo looking at a fully functional monitor. Not sure if it will help but this is my finding.

To remove the program creator 9 of my comp. shuts down and turned the comp. and the monitor turns off completely. I sign the comp. on the tv. I can do with my monitor

Posted on Nov 30, 2008

Well, isn't this a coincidence? Exact same story... within a month of my warranty finishing, my monitor dies. The problem is that the power supply is dead. Yes, a new monitor is 250-300 dollars, however to get the power supply fixed at a place like staples, its going to the tune of about 220$... which is not much better. Not impressed. I'm going to call HP again tomorrow... they are not very nice on the phones there. They told me they'd send me a replacement twice and it never came. Not impressed.

Before you panic see if there is some hidden reset code from the manufacturer. If not, then you get concerned.
Check to see if you are using the right protocol to get it out of the hibernate mode.

No power. No lights.


I have the exact same problem.
TV was working fine (if you call having to deal with blinking lights of death and multiple starrt up errors...) - but I powered through it all.
This TV is 6 years old and started acting up after the 4-year extended warranty ran out.
This morning I went to turn it on and nothing.
Hmmm... Got my manual to count the blinking light code...
Whoops. No lights. Nothing. Checked plug. Checked power.
Uninstalled and installed lamp. Checked plug and power again.
Nothing.
Not one stinking light. No power to fan. Nothing.
