    It is dead and the warranty ran out a few months ago. Someone on this site told me it was probably the power supply. I have a fair knowledge of repairs and thought it wouldn't hurt to try.

    I have VS19" monitor. how do you take the back cover off?

  • jstngarcia2 Oct 19, 2008

    I have the same problem. It just won't power on at all. I believe it's the power supply. This is my first experience with LCD repair and would definitely give this one a try. I can solder, replace pcb's, Diodes, capacitors, resistors. I just need a run through on diagnosting this. It's the same HP vs19 19" monitor.

I've run into several of these screens with the issue being not turning on. In fact, the power light doesn't even light up. Here's how I make it like new:

1) remove the base via three screws attaching it to the screen.

2) using a flat head screw driver (-) and applying enough pressure on the opposite side of the screen, gently insert the blade of the driver into the cracks between the front and rear pieces of the monitor (grey in color). Work your way around gently and this will separate the two halves.

3) from here, work your way to the boards. In the revision of this model I am used to working on, there are two boards. The problem is on the power board (beige in color).

4) once separated, locate on the beige power board three capacitors with ratings of 470uF 25V. They should be located in a corner of the board. All the ones I have encountered are oozing from the top of the capacitors. Replace these three (or any other capacitors oozing or raised up on the top) with capacitors of the SAME RATING (VERY IMPORTANT). Once new capacitors are installed, put the monitor back together and voila! Just like new.

Had the same problem with my HP vs19. Opened it up and by disconnecting the video input cable to the lcd, the power would stay on. The problem now is to see if I can find a lcd for this monitor that is reasonable. My HP vs19 is a product nuber P8726AA and I am going to see if I can get the part direct from the manufacturer of the lcd since HP does not sell any internal parts for this monitor.

Those tabs are tricky but if you use you credit card or thing similar to rease the tabs and you should be OK. But al the parts inside are sevicable parts and should have knowlage how the monitor works!

My hp f70 had two release buttons on the bottom of the frame these release two major 'hooks' that hold on the face plate. Once these are release you can use a flat blade screw driver to go around the edges and pop the pressure clips along the groove. Use a screwdriver at the very top edge to start poping the top clips as well since there is no groove up there.

Artifixit is dead on. I had to access the power supply to find a problem (haven't found it yet LOL), and a credit card works pretty well for working your way around. However, don't forget to take the base off first. There are three screws, two exposed, the third you must pop off the cap of the base unit to gain access to. After that, you're home free. The display has two fuses, one is the main one, "F801" (serviceable!), right next to the "line in", and another one, "F802", a soldered-in one on the opposite side of the power board. (The power board is the one the cord goes into) You will have to remove the metal sheild, ofcourse, to gain access to the circuit board. In MY case, neither fuse was the problem... I am still trying to track down the source of my display's demise. (No power indication, no indication of anything at all going on - totally dead)

Good luck with yours, and if your problem is the same as mine, and you find YOUR gremlin, please let me know...?

Unless there are some screws on around the outer edge on the rear of the monitor it looks like this could be a snap fit design.

A snap fit design would mean the front bezel (the plastic that is around the monitor in the front) is held in by clips in the frame work.

The best way to get this type off is using a plastic edge like on a credit card and slide it inbetween the bezel and back casing. Work your way along the edge and it will usually pop out a little, keep going until you have gone all the way around and hopefully the front bezel will pop off.

As noted before, there aren't many serviceable parts in there unless you have very good understanding of power supplies etc, and HP won't supply any internal components for this monitor.

I strongly advice you not to do that. For there are very few servicable parts in an LCD screen. You can try though if your technical knowledge is good enough. If it's still under warranty contact HP or your retailer for a repair/replacement.

Anyhow, what seems to be the defect on your HP monitor?

Greetings,

If you can't get the back off the monitor, there probably isn't much you can do to repair it on the inside.

No power when u plug in an turn on HP vs15 15 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor.can u tell me how to open it up so i can check the switch


You need thin flat blade screw driver to crack open the case, it is almost the same as VS19, more likely to havebad caps with bulging tops, see pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/HP%20VS19D/

Monitor cuts off after 10 minutes. When you power back up the screen displays as if there was no problem.


It can be the power supply is getting bad, it will get to the point where it will not start at all, look for bad caps with bulging top, it mat have the same chassis as VS19. It can also be bad connection on the lamps, see http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/HP%20VS19D/

Hello there kittensue.

Here's your geek-steer ...

Based on your trouble description, likeliest to be either the monitor OR the video card:
  • Connect the troubled monitor up to a "known good" PC system.
  • Swap a "known good" video card into the system hooked up to the troubled monitor, or vice-verse.
Deduction will reveal which is in need of repair/replacement.

Good luck, and please do post back ...

  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback,
  • if you have ANY further questions.
Today's the best day of my life ... and NOW you're part of it!

Don't drag out your soldering gun these are too high wattage and will melt the board. Use a 40 to 25 watt soldering iron.

Hp monitor vs 19v


For those with HP vs19 monitors. I had the same problem of the monitor ceasing to work after less than 2 years. In desperation before trashing it, I did some research on forums and found someone who boldly tried to fix it himself since it was dead anyway. I sent my monitor and this person's solution to a friend who is a repair man and the info was right on the money.

It appears that HP is using capacitors that burn out too fast. There are 3 capacitors on the board inside the monitor that were oozing brown gunky stuff. When he replaced the capacitors the monitor worked fine. My repair guy opened my monitor (which took a bit of prying gently all the way around several times as it just snaps on) and found the same goopy capacitors in mine. He replaced the 10v ones with 35v ones and the monitor now works fine. The total cost to me for the 3 capacitors at Radio Shack and his labor was $30. I am so glad I didn't give up and just trash the monitor. Hope this helps. I would not attempt to fix this myself but by taking it to someone you know that fixes computers and asking specifically for them to check that problem might save you lots of big bucks....
