Hp F 2105 MONITOR

By allycoo, posted on Mar 17, 2008 Hi all, I'm a newbie. Like others I'm having a problem with the power button. It didn't start until I used one of the buttons in the bezel because my monitor sound went out (the computer earphones work though). I pressed the monitor sound button (for the first time) thinking for some reason it was just a fluke. Anyway when I pressed the button, some sort of "indicator pop-up" came up to show how much I was raising the sound. It's a rectangle about 4" x 6" inches and stays on all the time (may flash on and off every once in a while) which makes the computer almost unuseable because it's right in the middle of the screen and it stays on top and I have to guess where any download or favorites pop-up comes up because the the cursor is lost behind it. There is no X or minimize box, to turn it off - just a plain black pop-up with a white border.

The other bezel buttons don't work either - then about a week later the power button started flashing between amber and blue. Now I can't turn it off (except by turning off computer and pulling AC plug) My screensaver works most of the time but the box is even on top of that-!!! Of course I can't use Media Center either (seems like all the action is in the middle of the screen.)

I called HP (India) but they were no help. I would take it back to Circuit City but my warranty expired a month before all of this happened. I called a couple of shops and the minimum (just to open it) was $150 which with only social security I can't afford.

I didn't know about this website or I would have asked earlier!!! Thanks for any help anyone can offer. I'm at my wits end.

I hope this is not too long but I wanted to give as many details as possible. In summary:

1.) No bezel buttons work
2:) Volume pop-up stays on.

    Thanks very much Ambersloves but none of the bezel buttons work including Menu. I sure am glad to hear that someone else saw that volume popup - no one knew what the heck I was talking about.



    Thanks again for your suggestion - I appreciate it very much.

I know about that volume pop up that refuses to go away. I figured out that it goes away if I press the "Menu" button. If that doesn't work, I have no idea what will.

    So, I had this problem with my power button and my computer started crashing, so I basically had to back-up everything and do a totally system recovery using my recovery CD's. Everything is working fine now.

HP f2105 monitor going into sleep mode on it's own


Does it do the same when you use this monitor with other PC, new VGA cable, just need to narrow down the problem first before start taking the monitor apart.
See pictures of what usually goes bad (mostly failed capacitors) with monitors:

Power button stuck


I had the same problem. To get to the power button you just have to remove the front trim panel that the button is attached to. There is a small slot on the bottom of the pannel near the power buttom. I inserted a very small screwdriver and pried the front corner up then very carefully I went around the perimeter with the screwdriver and released the snap hooks by gently prying the silver side trim panel away from the front trim panel. It's not hard but you have to be gentle so as not to break a hook or mar the trim. Once you have the front trim panel loosened there is a wire which connects the four buttons on the front to the monitor. It's very short so don't drop the front trim panel.
