    My Hp F1903 monitor started going out several months ago. I I cut the power to the monitor it will work for an hour or so before going black. If I reboot it may work for a socond or so. I have to cut the power to it for a day or so before it will work again. I thiink it has to be a capacitor but I am not a guru that can fix such things withou a lot of help.

    My 180mt blacks out intermittently. Sometimes I can use it for a while, but then the problem pops up again. The light just blinks and the screen is black.

    I have the same problem as already described. The monitor will work for a while, then go black. It was only 1 year old when this started.

    My Fujitsu Siemens monitor blacks out after half a second when I try to reset/ turn it on, it's been doing that for about a month now. If I finally get it working I leave it on overnight and it seems to remain intact as long as I don't reset or shutdown.

My HP Monitor refuses to turn on.. It's on but the screen is black

martineillas, Go here first, and do some reading. Then do standard flashlight test to determine "full" or "partial" shutdown mode of the internal power supply. Look at rear of monitor for "date of manufacture" ?? If screen is black and blank, then supply is in full shutdown mode. If not blank, only black, then 5vdc ok, 12vdc in shutdown mode (bad) !!! Do some extensive reading in the fixya profiles of the technicians here on FIXYA. Plenty of repair documentation already been written on this type of lcd monitor repair. Always state "model number" and approximate total "on" hours of use when contacting fixya for help. Good luck with repair. 12fixlouie

Unfortunately, it isn't a Windows problem, but a monitor power or backlight failure. Your monitor's high voltage inverter board, or the backlight has failed. Often it is too expensive to repair, and cheaper to replace the monitor if it is out of warranty

Black screen

What do you do to make it come back on? Sounds like it might be getting too hot and/or going bad. Try it on another machine and see what it does. Also try another video card because the video card could be going bad.
Sounds like an insurance claim.

Screen goes black with white horizontal line.

WHEN does this problem occur? Does it ONLY happen after the computer loads Windows (or another OS), or does it happen as soon as you turn the monitor on? We really need more information before we can provide specific advice or suggestions... IF this happens as soon as you turn the monitor on, switch it with a different monitor. If the problem goes away, the original monitor is defective, and probably not worth the cost of repairing it. If the problem ONLY happens after you load Windows, boot the system into Safe Mode (press the F8 key during bootup until you see the menu which allows you to select Safe Mode), then reboot and see if the problem has been resolved; simply booting into Safe Mode, then rebooting the system into Windows MIGHT solve this WITHOUT requiring you to change any system settings... IF the problem remains in Windows AFTER you've booted into Safe Mode AND rebooted back to Windows, the videocard driver might be corrupted. In that case, you'll have to reinstall the vidcard driver to correct this problem... If all else fails, it IS possible that the videocard itself is defective; if installing an updated driver doesn't work, try swapping the videocard with a different one. BE SURE to uninstall the OLD videodriver, and install the proper one for the new videocard; if you don't install the correct driver, you could create MORE problems than you have right now...
