Question about HP Pavilion vp15 Monitor
The monitor goes into standby mode if it does not see the video signal from the PC or there are problem inside the monitor. Try it with other PC first, also check the pins on the VGA cable. If it still does not work, you will have to open it up. First place to check will be th caps (leaking/bulging top) in the power supply first, for this 2001 model year, I will not be surprised if it has bad caps.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
