Question about PC Desktops
HP pavilion f1904 monitor will power on but when a signal is sent to it by either presing the menu it switches off the monitor. if it is hooked up to a pc and switched on, the image is displayed for 1 second then goes black.
What was the last thing you were able to do with it? Have you made any changes to the monitor's or your computer's settings and configuration before the problem came?
Firstly, assess whether the problem lies with the monitor or you pc. It's simple actually. Plug the monitor into another PC, or a DVD player or any other device that would accept the data connection to you PC. If the monitor works on other systems, then the problem lies with your PC. If this is the case, post here again if you need help to solve this.
If the monitor doesn't work, then the case is most probably that the internal chipset of the monitor itself has been damaged or isn't working anymore. The usual causes for this are moisture getting in the monitor, old age of the device, dropping/bumping/breaking/etc of the monitor. Best to have it sent to your dealer or the nearest qualified service center.
