Question about HP Vs17 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

When I turn my monitor on, the screen shows the desktop momentarily and then goes black. If I turn it off and on a couple more times, the desktop will stay on and function normally. Where is the likely problem - monitor switch, monitor inverter, video card, what else?

    my monitor is a HP vs 17 (circa 2006)

    I switched the monitor to a different computer and it does the same thing on that computer.

    I have already replaced the monitor and the new one works fine with no blackouts, but I would like to know if the old one could be repaired with a replaced momentary monitor switch or replace the original monitor switch with a spst switch from Radio Shack.

    If it is the monitor inverter that's causing the problem, it probably is no longer available as a part since this is an old 3:5 ratio monitor.

    I contacted HP, but the only thing they offered me was a service contract for a fee.

Try the monitor on another computer, to check-out the monitor.

Does the POWER lamp on the monitor stay on when the monitor goes black? If so, then the monitor probably is OK.

Try a different monitor, to trouble-shoot the video-card.

You either have a hardware problem with your video card. ( may have pop out of socket when you plug in the monitor) or the cable is not allow communication to the monitor. As long as the amber light comes on you know you have power so focud on data cables and hardware.

Laptop monitor goes black


If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

I hope this helps.

RE:monitor goes black


Monitor going black after a few seconds can be causd by a faulty power supply or inverter. Some monitors have both as one unit.
Sometimes it is basic failed capacitors, After that then I would look at transistors.
The average monitor from 17 to 20 and sometimes the 22s have usually 4 bulbs in them. One bad bulb will also cause the inverter to not fire up.
Bad bulbs usually show pinkish tint, or flickering or are dark at center top or bottom of the display.
